The mother of a young Akron woman last seen May 3 made her plea to Akron City Council Monday night.
Carmilla Robinson spoke of the pain of spending Mothers Day without Taylor.
"She's 19, this is my first Mother's Day I ever spent without her," Carmillla told council members and those attending council's Monday meeting. "She's my first kid, so this is...she's the reason I was a Mom."
Carmilla says she doesn't want to be like Gina DeJesus' mother had to be
"I don't want to be like Gina's mom and the only one still hoping and believing for 10 years that my baby's still alive," Carmilla Robinson said to Akron City Council. "I just don't want people to forget that I'm still looking for her."
In a story that captured worldwide attention, Gina, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight were found in a Cleveland home after being missing for 10 years.
Carmilla says she wants to ensure Taylor Robinson is not just a name.
"I don't want people to just let Taylor be a name in a newspaper or a face on a telephone pole," Carmilla said. "She's not just that."
Council president Gary Moneypenny said the body has the Robinson family in their hearts and prayers.
Earlier, Carmilla Robinson had expressed frustration over the slow pace of the police investigation into her daughter's disappearance.
Moneypenny said he talked to police over the weekend, including Akron Police Chief James Nice, and was assured they had the case at the top of their agenda.
"(Chief Nice) says it's their top priority," Moneypenny responded to Carmilla Robinson, "and informs me that even the FBI is greatly assisting in this investigation."
Carmilla Robinson says forgetting her missing daughter isn't possible for those who love her.
On a very light agenda Monday for Akron City Council was one major piece of business.
Council voted to sell a building at 1240 Triplett Boulevard that has been used by the city's communications department to local company J.W. DiDado Electric.
The electrical contractor is paying $845,000 for the building, near Kelly Avenue and I-76.
Councilman at large Jeff Fusco says the communications operations will move to an existing city building, and that the Triplett Boulevard location is convenient for its new owners.
