GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Family members of a Greenville woman whose body was found on Oct. 30, released a statement on Tuesday.

Misty Johnson's brother Randy Johnson, Jr. said in the statement:

My family and I have been overwhelmed by the love and support we have received. Many people have spent countless hours searching for my sister. We will never be able to express our gratitude to everyone involved, including concerned volunteers, Misty's friends and the Greenville Police Department. We would especially like to thank the Greenville Police Department and the detectives assigned to her case for the tireless effort they put into finding Misty. We couldn't have asked for more from them. Although, they did not release as much information as some would have liked, they have worked non-stop on Misty's case since she was first discovered missing. Some members of the police department spent hours of their free time combing the area.

The arrest does not bring my sister back, but it could protect young women in the Greenville area. I am personally proud of your police department and thankful that they were working on Misty's case. I ask you to join me in thanking the Greenville Police Department for the sacrifices and hard work that they give to the Greenville community every day of their lives.

Misty's memorial service will be on Wednesday, November 13th at 2:00 pm at Brookwood Church by Palmetto Mortuary. We would like to invite all those who love Misty to join us in celebrating her life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Greenville Humane Society.

Services for Misty Johnson will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 2 p.m. at Brookwood Church in Simpsonville, family members said. 

The family asks that donations be made to the Greenville Humane Society in lieu of flowers. They said Johnson was an animal lover.

Johnson went missing on Sept. 12, and her body was found on Oct. 30 in Greenville County at the end of Whispering Hollow Road near Interstate 85.

A man has been charged Johnson's death, according to police.
