On Friday’s (Feb. 24) “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg and Elisabeth Hasselbeck co-hosted a segment about missing 16-year-old Mishell Green, who disappeared five months ago in Manhattan. On Sunday, ABC announced that Green has since been reunited with her family and that the show was instrumental in her recovery.
The segment is part of a series called “‘The View’ on Crime: Missing Black Children,” was apparently seen by a viewer who then called the show to tip off authorities to Michelle’s whereabouts.
“Thank you to ‘The View’ for providing a platform that gave Mishell’s story the media attention needed for her recovery,” says the family in a statement.
Mishell’s mother, stepfather and biological father will appear on “The View” Monday (Feb. 27) to talk about the family’s reunion.
