Three women who were rescued this month after allegedly being held captive in a Cleveland house for close to a decade “are happy and safe,” and overwhelmed by the public’s support, their attorneys said in a statement released Wednesday.

Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Georgina “Gina” DeJesus “want you to know they’re doing well,” the attorneys’ statement reads.

“They are happy and safe and continue to heal, a process that requires time and privacy,” attorneys Kathy Joseph, Heather Kimmel, Henry Hilow and James Wooley said.

Berry, 27; DeJesus, 23; and Knight, 32 — and a 6-year-old daughter born to Berry in captivity — were found alive on May 6 in a Cleveland home, police said. The women are believed to have been abducted years ago — in 2002, 2003 and 2004 — and held captive at the home of Ariel Castro, 52, according to police.
