The recent discovery of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight has put the focus back on missing person's cases all over Ohio. 

In fact, investigators with the FBI say dozens of tips have poured in this week for unsolved cases like Ashley Summers, who was only 14 when she disappeared near W. 196th Street and Madison Avenue in 2007.  

The most recent case in Northeast Ohio involves 19-year-old Taylor Robinson of Akron.  Her mother, Carmilla Robinson, says Taylor was juggling two jobs to pay her way through school at Kent State when she never returned home from work.  

"She's responsible, if she's not coming home she'll always call and let me know she's not coming home," explained Carmilla.  "I just want to make sure she's ok." It's a parent's worst nightmare and, unfortunately, hundreds of Ohio families suffer through similar experiences each year. 

According to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, there are an estimated 700 missing children in Ohio right now.

"My daughter has been missing since 1995," said Debbie Marmol who has been seeking closure for 18 years. 

Although there have been unconfirmed sightings of her daughter Christina Adkins in California, her missing person's case remains open with the FBI.  

"I wish the world wasn't like this...that you can raise your kids and not have to worry," said Marmol.   "I hope I don't have to wait 10 years, but I'll wait I'll wait the rest of my life," said Robinson.
