US Working 'Behind the Scenes' for Al Qaeda Hostage Release, State Says


Jennifer Lynn Coakley, Weinstein's daughter who also spoke with "Good Morning America," said the "hardest thing" for her is trying to explain her fathers' situation to his grandchildren.

"Our son's too young to really tell him what's going on," Coakley said, tearing up. "And our daughter, we finally had to tell her, and that was I think one of the hardest things ever because that little brain of hers, a 7-year-ol to ask the questions she had to ask... 'When is he going to come play,' 'How come he's missing everything,'... How do you answer that for a kid?"

Alisa Weinstein, another of Warren's daughters, said that if her father could somehow see her in a television video the same way she's seen him in al Qaeda's, she would tell him "how much [she] misses him."

"I would just tell him that I love him and that I think about him every day," she said.

"And when he comes home, we're going to treat him like royalty and take such good care of him because he always takes good care of us, and now it's his turn to be taken care of," Elaine said.
