CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -
When Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were found, a lesser known woman was also found with them. Mention Gina or Amanda's name in Cleveland, and chances are someone knows who you're talking about, but Michelle Knight remains a mystery.
We do know that she disappeared on August 23rd, 2002 from W. 106th and Lorain, the same area as Gina and Amanda.
Unlike the other 2 girls, Michelle was an adult, 21-years-old when she went missing.
There was no mention of Michelle on any websites we searched, from F.B.I. websites to the Ohio Attorney General's website.
We know that at the time she disappeared, she lived at a house on Walnut Avenue. The police report said she suffered from a mental condition. She was also the mother of a young child, who was taken by Social Services.
Investigative reporter Carl Monday talked with a family member of Michelle who said that Michelle's mother let the family years ago, abandoning Michelle's younger brother in a dumpster.
Her brother, who was a twin, said he and his sister were products of an abusive home.
That brother, Freddie, went to the hospital Monday to see his sister.
