Video: Mother, sister of missing mom speak out

  1. Closed captioning of: Mother, sister of missing mom speak out

    >> krista's mother and sister are with us now exclusively along with a family friend, kathy pratt. good morning.

    >> good morning.

    >> let me ask you. we heard the law enforcement official in amy's piece say they are making progress. have they informed you of what progress they are making?

    >> no, not at this -- well, they have been keeping me updated. but they are only limited on what they can tell me.

    >> i know you last spoke to krista friday. she was driving at the time. did she tell you where she was going, who she was going to see? any pertinent information like that?

    >> i talked to her friday night. i didn't ask her if she was driving or whatever. but we were just a quick conversation. she was expecting something in the mail at my house. i told her she didn't get it. it was just brief. she was normal. i would see her on easter sunday.

    >> what about in the days prior to that? kayla, did you notice a change in your sister? was she under any extra stress? did she talk about pressures in her life? anything like that?

    >> no. i never noticed anything at all. she never talked to me. she always seemed happy. i talked to her that morning because my birthday was the day before, thursday the 21st. i talked to her the next morning and nothing seemed out of the ordinary at all.

    >> did she talk to any of you about being afraid of anyone? was someone angry at her, someone jealous of her?

    >> no, nothing at all. i don't believe she had anybody that had a vendetta against her. she's lovable, outgoing. i have asked her friends. they tell me the same thing. they don't know who would want to hurt her.

    >> when you think about the circumstances surrounding the discovery of her car. it's in a ski resort parking lot running, the door is ajar, her baby in the back seat and the lights are flashing. when you add up the pieces what comes to mind? what do you think happened?

    >> obviously somebody wanted to attract attention to the car. i don't know if krista was in the car at that point. we really don't know if she was and she wanted her baby to be found and she knew she'd be taken care of.

    >> i have to ask you about the father of the baby. we just identified him as kyle acker, the former boyfriend of your daughter. they lived together until january when he was sent to prison. do you think though he physically could not have been at that location at that time might he have anything to do with this?

    >> i don't have any comments about him at this time. i would like to focus more on finding my daughter.

    >> tell me about your granddaughter. she's staying with you now, i understand. how is she doing?

    >> she's doing well. she has her moments like any 14-month-old baby would do. she's got restless nights. she sleeps with my daughter every night. she definitely misses her. she's been crying at nighttime and very clingy to me, very confused. all these people are around she's not familiar with. daytime she's happy. nights, she's having a hard time .

    >> i know you wanted the opportunity to make a plea to anyone holding your daughter or who may know where your daughter is. what would you like to say?

    >> first, i would like to say, krista , i know you're out there. i love you. aliyah loves you, your sister and your family loves you. we want you home. whoever has her, drop her off wherever. just let her be found, please. let her be found.

    >> ladies, thank you all. we'll keep following the story.
