UNDERHILL, VT. (AP) - The wife of sea Capt. Richard Phillips is keeping a low profile a day after her husband was dramatically rescued from pirates off the coast of Somalia.

Andrea Phillips remains behind closed doors Monday in her home in Underhill, Vt.

Her mother Catherine Coggio says Andrea Phillips might make a statement on Monday, but it’s likely to be delivered by a spokeswoman for Maersk (mersk) shipping company. Richard Phillips was rescued on Easter Sunday, when U.S. Navy snipers shot and killed the three Somali pirates who were holding him at gunpoint.

There is still no word on when or where Richard and Andrea Phillips will be reunited.
