WASHINGTON, April 10. /TASS/. The family of US citizen Kevin Patrick Dawes released in Syria is grateful to authorities of the United States, Russia and the Czech Republic for efforts undertaken to liberate him, the family said in the statement available with the Associated Press.

"We're incredibly grateful for the tireless efforts of the U.S. government over the last three years and the involvement of the Czech and Russian governments in securing Kevin's release," said the statement emailed by Randy Dawes, who identified himself as Kevin's father.

33-year old Dawes working as a freelance photographer was detained in Syria in 2012.

The U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Friday that Russian authorities took part in release of Dawes along with the Czech diplomatic mission representing Washington’s interests in Syria.
