Hennes Paynter Communications held a press conference Sunday morning with statements from Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight.

Jim Wooley of Hennes Paynter Communications read the following statement on behalf of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight:

"Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight are extremely grateful for the generous assistance and loving support of their families, friends, and the community. They are also very grateful for the tireless efforts of numerous law enforcement officials with the Cleveland Police Department, the Cuyahoga County Sheriff, the FBI, and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office."

Amanda Berry says, "Thank you so much for everything you're doing and continue to do. I am so happy to be home with my family."

Gina DeJesus says, "I'm so happy to be home and want to thank everybody for all your prayers. I just want time now to be with my family"

Michelle Knight says, "Thank you to everyone for your support and good wishes. I am healthy, happy and safe and will reach out to family, friends and supporters in good time."

The women have said that they will not be giving any interviews to the media because there is a pending investigation into what happened to them and they are witnesses to those proceedings.

Lastly, Wooley said there continue to be numerous generous offers of support from members of the community. He said, "Ms. Berry, Ms. DeJesus, and Ms. Knight are very appreciative of the generosity. The offers have come in many forms. Persons interested in providing support are encouraged to work with legitimate entities such as the Cleveland Courage Fund."
