Michelle Knight, one of the three women found in Cleveland after disappearing 10 years ago, hasn’t seen her mother since her rescue on Monday.
“I started crying and I was happy that they found her because I’ve been looking for her and I just don’t want her to think that I forgot about her,” Barbara Knight told Today’s Savannah Guthrie on Wednesday of learning that her daughter had been found inside the home of alleged kidnapper Ariel Castro.
“I just wish my daughter would reach out and let me know that she’s there,” she added.
