Daughter voices anger at mom found after 11 years

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The teenage daughter of a woman who secretly left her family 11 years ago says she's angry and doesn't want to have a relationship with her.

Morgan Heist said Thursday that she's still trying to sort out why Brenda Heist would have decided to abandon her and her brother in Pennsylvania in 2002 and hitchhike with strangers to Florida.

Morgan Heist is now a 19-year-old freshman at a community college outside Philadelphia. She says she thinks about how she's spent the last decade mourning a woman who was alive.

Morgan says that knowing what she knows now, she wishes she never cried over her mom's fate.

Brenda Heist's mother says she's been released from police custody and is staying with a brother in northern Florida.
