Read the full article to solve the mystery surrounding this ten-year investigation into Baby Lisa Irwin’s disappearance.
Who is baby Lisa?
Lisa was born to Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin on November 11, 2010. The couple already had two boys, ages 5 and 8, who they were parenting from a previous relationship.
She was characterized as being a very easy-going and joyful young girl and had a very fair complexion, light blond hair, and sparkling blue eyes. She was a much-desired and adored child who truly completed their family.
What happened to Baby Lisa?
Ten years ago, sources claim that a beautiful young girl named Lisa Irwin with big blue eyes disappeared into the chilly night. On October 4, 2011, Lisa Renee Irwin, a 10-month-old baby, disappeared from her North Kansas City, Missouri, home.
At around 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Lisa’s mother, Deborah Bradley, reported to the police that Lisa’s father, Jeremy Irwin, had discovered their infant was gone.
It was reported that Lisa had been sleeping in her bed when Deborah checked on her at 6:40 and 10:40 p.m. When Jeremy arrived home, the front door was unlocked, a window was open, and the house’s lights were all on. They added that a further three cell phones were also lost.
Bradley later acknowledged that she couldn’t recall the precise time that she last saw Lisa since she had been drinking with a buddy.
She only clearly remembered seeing baby Lisa at 6:30 p.m., before she began drinking. Bradley reported that Lisa was then fast asleep in her cradle.
But Lisa had already left by the time Jeremy Irwin went to check on her before joining his wife in bed.
Inside the investigation of baby Lisa’s disappearance
The current most widely accepted theory holds that infant Lisa was abducted by a person who was not related to her or her family, indicating that she is probably still alive.
Two witnesses claimed they had seen a man carrying a baby through the street where Lisa Irwin lived in the week following Lisa Irwin’s disappearance. In addition, surveillance footage captures a man in white exiting a nearby forested area at about 2:30 in the morning.
But only one of the witnesses acknowledged it could be him when detectives discovered someone they thought closely fit the eyewitness’ descriptions.
However, after further investigation, the police were unable to find another plausible culprit because his alibi stood up.
Baby Lisa update 2023
A young girl who had been kidnapped in Greece was found in 2013, which offered some optimism.
Many people assumed Lisa, whose characteristics were similar to those of the little girl with blonde hair and blue eyes. Sadly, DNA testing revealed that the mother of the young child was of Bulgarian Roma heritage.
More than ten years have passed since Lisa Irwin, an infant, vanished while sleeping in her cot. Lisa has yet to be discovered. Her parents are still convinced that she was abducted that evening, possibly as part of a shady adoption plot.
Police claim that this is still an active investigation and that new leads are being found. Hopefully one of them works out, allowing us to return Lisa, who would be 13 by then to her family.
