Celina Cass' mother speaks out

West Stewartstown, New Hampshire - September 21, 2011

Nearly two months after her daughter's disappearance, the mother of Celina Cass is speaking publicly for the first time. Luisia Cass remains in mourning, has separated from her husband, Wendell Noyes, and is struggling financially.

"I cry myself to sleep every night. I look at an empty house. I look for her in the mirror, I look for her in the store when we go shopping," Luisia Cass said.

A mother's pain-- raw and endless-- Luisia Cass struggles to sleep at night and says Celina's 13-year-old sister Kayla is always afraid now.

"When you think they're safe in their own home they're not," Luisia Cass said.

Luisia and Celina watched TV the night before she disappeared. At 9 p.m., Luisia kissed her 11-year-old baby goodnight and went upstairs to bed. Luisia never saw her again.

Celina's body was pulled from the Connecticut River a week later and Luisia was advised not to look at her daughter's little body.

"The only memories I got left are these pictures," Luisia said.

Luisia is a woman in free-fall emotionally and financially. Since Celina's death, she's moved to Vermont and separated from Wendell Noyes who helped pay the rent at the West Stewartstown house. She's cut her hours at her job so her daughter Kayla is never alone.

"I go to the cemetery every week. I talk to her, I want her to come and tell me what happened so we know," Luisia said.

So far, New Hampshire authorities have released little information about the investigation into Celina's death.
