LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — The mother of Relisha Rudd said she has faith that her 8-year-old daughter is still alive during a fiery appearance on an esoteric internet broadcast dedicated to the missing child.

Shamika Young fired back at callers to “The Finding Relisha Rudd Show” who were critical of her actions both before and after her daughter’s disappearance in early March.

“There’s not so much I can do. If you had the world putting threats on your head what would you do? You don’t want to be out there trying to look for your daughter and have to watch your back too,” she said. “So when I do go out there, I go out there for my daughter. Not for the violence and not for the bashing.”

Many who have followed the case question why police have not charged Young in connection to her daughter’s disappearance.
