Cleveland Police Removed Kidnapping Victim, Michelle Knight, from FBI Database Early On

Nearly a decade before Michelle Knight escaped her captor’s house in Cleveland, police removed her from an FBI database that stores information on missing people, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Just 15 months after Knight went missing in 2002, her name was wiped off the database.

Police defended the move, saying they couldn’t reach her mother to verify the woman was still missing.

But at the time, the police department had a written policy that required an officer to verify a missing person has been found and then inform the FBI, the Plain Dealer wrote.
