The Disappearance of Lisa
On October 3, 2011, Lisa was last seen leaving her house in the 3600 block of North Lister Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri. Deborah Bradley, her mother, placed the child in her crib with a blanket, pacifier, and some toys.
Deborah’s final encounter with her child was either around 6:40 or 10:30 p.m. (Reports vary.) She was also taking care of the Lisa’s two elder half-brothers that night while they slept in a different room. Later, she acknowledged having had wine that evening and becoming inebriated. She also took prescription anxiety medicine.
The following morning, about 4:00, Lisa’s electrician father, Jeremy Irwin, returned from work, and they found Lisa had vanished. The front door was unlocked, Lisa’s bedroom window was open, the house had several lights on, and three cell phones were purportedly missing.
Soon after 4:00 a.m., Lisa’s parents called 911 to report her missing. Along with this case narrative, there are pictures of them. There was no evidence of the baby despite a thorough search of the vicinity.
Deborah and Jeremy disagree with the authorities’ claim that Lisa’s parents were uncooperative during the investigation. Although Deborah was still legally married to another man and had a six-year-old boy by him, they were engaged to be married at the time Lisa vanished.
By 2010, Deborah and her husband had been apart for almost four years, during which time he was in the Army. Deborah’s husband said he didn’t think she would have hurt Lisa or been responsible for her abduction.
Around 4:00 a.m. that night, three different witnesses spotted a man carrying a baby who was just wearing a diaper as he walked down the road a little more than three miles from Lisa’s house. It’s not apparent if the sightings had anything to do with Lisa’s case.
The disappearance of the youngster has no known suspects, according to the authorities. According to her parents, she was taken from her house either late on October 3 or early on October 4, possibly by a person looking to have a kid. Lisa’s case is still open.
