County spokespeople said they have received new calls and information since Tuesday's plea from Foxx.

"We hope that it will turn into a fruitful investigation and it will result in the return of Joycelyn Savage to her family or, at the very least, that she start opening continuous conversations and interactions with her family like she had before she met Mr. Robert Sylvester Kelly", Griggs told PEOPLE on Wednesday.

Foxx said her office has been in contact with two families who say they were victims. "Allegations of domestic violence or sexual assault require someone to say what they've seen, heard or experienced". The club appearance follows the release of Surviving R. Kelly, a six-part Lifetime documentary series that alleges that he has kept women against their will in both Chicago and Atlanta, Georgia.

She added that her office is talking to two families whose loved ones had been in contact with Kelly.

An attorney for Kelly did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment.

While no charges have now been brought in Kelly's other residence of Chicago, Cook County state attorney Kim Foxx held a press conference on Tuesday to encourage any victims to "please come forward".

"There are no underage women, there is no sex cult, it's all some reality TV made up story", Greenberg said. "No one has ever seen any evidence of it". There are no photos of him with these women. This comes after news that Kelly is under criminal investigation in Georgia, that his manager is also under investigation, and that an arrest warrant is out for his former manager. Both Kelly and the girl denied that the video depicted them, and no assault charges were ever brought against Kelly as a result of the tape. Rather, he was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008.

The years of evading trouble are catching up to R. Kelly.

"We have noted media reports and public campaigns calling on the muting and banning of R Kelly's music following allegations of sexual abuse". The documentary also stated that R. Kelly had friends in the police who would tip him off when welfare checks were being made at the studio.

Kelly won a Grammy in 1997 for "I Believe I Can Fly", and is known for such raunchy hits as "Bump N' Grind" and "Ignition".
