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.

Terrilynn Monette, a 26-year-old elementary school teacher who helped her second-graders turn their academic performances around, has apparently vanished.
The California native, who moved to New Orleans as part of that city's initiative to improve teaching in impoverished zones, was last seen with friends on March 2 after visiting Parlay's, a bar in the town's Lakeview section, police tell CNN.
That night, Monette had been "cut off" by a bartender who said she had too much to drink, according to Parlay's manager Anna Boudousque. The teacher was celebrating her nomination as "Teacher of the Year" in her district.

Reluctantly believing she is dead, the family of Michelle Parker, the Florida mom who vanished after appearing on The People's Court in 2011, filed a wrongful death lawsuit Thursday against her ex-fiancé, Dale Smith, whom they believe was responsible.
Parker's family claims Smith knows what happened on Nov. 17, 2011, the day Parker was last seen alive.
"The family doesn't want to believe that Michelle is dead, but they believe that she is," their attorney, John Morgan, tells PEOPLE. "This is a case that has gone cold, so a civil case is the only way that Michelle's family will finally get answers. Given the passing of time, as well as some evidence we have discovered, we believe that Dale Smith is responsible for her death."
