ABC’s Chris Cuomo, reporting from Egypt as the president begins his overseas trip, featured the story of American Janet Greer who’s spent the last 12 years trying to see her daughter Sarah. The little girl was taken to Egypt by her father when she was just 3 years old.
“After we met with her this morning, we got calls from the U.S. embassy, that the [father's] family actually agreed to a meeting. All of Janet’s high-level pleas to the government officials here paid off. An interior minister interceded. And there was a meeting. She got to meet her daughter.” Cuomo said. “They hugged, it’s going on as we speak.”
Cuomo will file a story tomorrow on GMA about the reunion.
