Could Baby Lisa by one of the little girls found in Europe? An American couple has contacted the FBI in hopes to find out if one of the two girls taken into custody in connection with Roma families is their missing child. On Oct. 23, NBC News reported that Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley could have their mystery solved. Their baby, Lisa Irwin, disappeared in October of 2011.
"The (FBI) agent has made an official inquiry through governmental channels with the authorities in Greece. We are awaiting a response from them, which we anticipate will be forthcoming as soon as possible," said the family's lawyer, John Picerno.
Baby Lisa would be about 3-years-old now which doesn't give her family much hope. A dental examination on "Maria" -- one of the two blonde girls in protective custody -- suggests that she is about 5 or 6-years-old. If this is true, than Lisa Irwin is still missing. However, the family is still hopeful and their lawyer says that any abducted child found that could be Lisa is treated as a possibility.
"We enquire about every child that is found and fits the age profile of Lisa. We investigate all leads," Picerno told the media.
If Baby Lisa doesn't turn out to be one of these Roma children that doesn't mean that she isn't in a Roma camp somewhere. According to Picerno, there are about 10 leads on Lisa Irwin that are currently being investigated. They are in the U.S., Sweden, Poland, and France.
