Angelo Clary believes that his daughter moved in with Kelly when she was 18 and the family hasn't heard from her since 2016.
Singer R. Kelly is reportedly being investigated in multiple jurisdictions following the release of a Lifetime docuseries, "Surviving R. Kelly", which explores allegations that the Grammy victor sexually abused several victims over a span of decades.
During a press conference on Tuesday, Cook County's State Attorney Kimberly Foxx called upon victims and witnesses to continue to come forward and cooperate with the investigation.
According to Foxx, the families of two missing women have contacted her office with information concerning R. Kelly.
Joycelyn Savage's family was featured in Lifetime's docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly, which revealed Kelly's longtime history of alleged abuse against young women and girls. She has been in touch with families from the docu-series who are looking for their loved ones.
Kelly's Chicago attorney Steve Greenberg told The Hollywood Reporter that the claims raised during the series as just "another round of stories" in order to "fill reality TV time". Before the series aired, Kelly and his lawyers had dismissed the accusations and threatened to sue Lifetime. "No one has ever seen any evidence of it". In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. Rather, he was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008. The special included dozens of interviews with people formerly associated with Kelly, in addition to a number of women detailing their own claims of Kelly's alleged abuse.
Kelly has repeatedly denied the allegations. Parents of the women involved said at the time that they had attempted to get their daughters out of Kelly's homes, accusing him of controlling their eating habits, how they engaged in sexual activity and ruling over when they take baths or sleep.
"I believe the documentary has opened up a new era".
