Cleveland case inspires Hannibal mother

Whittaker's daughter just turned 4-years-old last month.


Three women who had been missing for more than a decade were found in Cleveland, Ohio on Monday.


That news in Cleveland has given a Hannibal mother new hope.


Cindy Young's daughter, Christina Whittaker, went missing in November 2009.


She was last seen at a sports bar on Broadway in Hannibal.


Young has never given up hope that her daughter is alive.


She said Monday's discovery of three missing women gave her a boost that she's needed lately.


"It's a victory for all of us who have kids who are missing and really for our entire nation," Young said. "I needed it. I really needed it."


Young thinks Whittaker could be a victim of human trafficking and just wants her to come home.


"It happens everyday," she said. "People think it's not here. It's everywhere. You can have a missing person right next door and not realize it. I hope to get back searching soon for her. Maybe she'll be the next one we'll find."


Whittaker has a daughter, Alexandria, who was not quite seven-months-old when her mother went missing.


She just turned 4-years-old last month.
