Although several questions still remained about the return of a missing woman, her family cut off media access Thursday, saying they would no longer issue public statements or grant interviews.
Donna Oh's family issued a statement saying relatives "are directing our time, effort and energy toward assisting each other, and Donna, in dealing with the emotional and psychological impact of the crimes perpetrated against her."Oh turned up Monday in Salt Lake City, 24 days after she vanished in Berkeley, Calif.
The 35-year-old vocational nurse has told police that two men abducted her at gunpoint and raped her and that they threatened to kill two of her children if she called police or went home.
Capt. Phil Doran of the Berkeley police said Oh could only describe her attackers as two white men, age 25 to 40. He said police were unable to alert other agencies about the suspects because they have so little information.
"She hasn't been very specific about it," Doran said.
Oh has been cooperative with police, Doran said, but has shed little light on details of her ordeal. He said police believe Oh's story, but investigators are trying to get a better picture of what happened.
The family statement was issued through an attorney.
It conceded family members were "totally accessible" to reporters while Oh was missing "and we are grateful for their assistance in that regard."
However, the statement said relatives will no longer make "public comments or statements" or grant interviews "regarding Donna's abduction or her reunification with us."
Oh granted some interviews on Wednesday.
"If people need more facts, they're just going to have to wait," said Oh, who had avoided reporters until then.
Oh disappeared Nov. 2 while reportedly on her way to the Pacific Film Archive near the University of California-Berkeley campus. She had phoned her daughter to say she was having car problems and that, if she could not drive home after the movie, she would call for a ride.
According to initial reports from police and the family, Oh was going to see the 1942 classic "Cat People" as part of a class assignment.
But Clark Sturges, her instructor at Diablo Valley College, said he had not assigned the film as a class project.
"I'm as mystified as anyone else by what's happened," Sturges said.
