CLEVELAND - The mother of Michelle Knight, one of three Cleveland women found alive after being reported missing for more than 10 years, explains the last time she saw her daughter.
Our sister station, The Naples Daily News, interviewed Knight's mother Barbara who discussed the evening someone last saw her daughter.
Her mother said Knight, who was 21 when she went missing, was staying at a friend's house on Aug. 21, 2002. Barbara came to pick Knight up the next day for a court appearance involving a custody battle with her son, Joey, but the friend said Knight left to go to the store.
Barbara said she waited and worried for hours at the friend's house before going home and filing a missing person report with Cleveland police.
Knight's cellphone was stolen prior to her disappearance leaving her mother no way of trying to contact her.
Knight went missing from West 106th Street and Lorain Avenue on Aug. 22, 2002 and was found alive in a house on Seymour Avenue on May 6, 2013.
Barbara, who lives in Naples, Fla., couldn't believe what she was watching Monday night on the news. She said at first she didn't believe it was her daughter because "she couldn't see her face."
Still, there is no one photo available of Knight.
Barbara is on her way to Cleveland.
