CLEVELAND (AP) - Three women who emerged from a Cleveland house after a decade in captivity say they are happy to be home.

An attorney for the women said Sunday morning that the three are extremely grateful for the support of family, law enforcement and the community.

Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight remain in seclusion and released a statement asking for privacy as they reconnect with their families.

Knight was the last of the three released from the hospital. She says she is healthy, happy and safe.

The women were found May 6 after Berry escaped and called 911.

Ariel Castro is accused of holding the women captive in his home. Authorities say he kidnapped and raped them and fathered Berry's 6-year-old daughter.

He is jailed on $8 million bond.
