There has been a new lead in the case of missing and presumed kidnapped Lisa Irwin. The ten month old infant vanished from her crib in the middle of the night three days ago.
A frantic search has been underway, with authorities believing the kidnapper may have entered the child’s room through a window. They have since backed away from that thought.

Baby Lisa Irwin’s parents, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, revealed their daughter’s abductor took all three cell phones, left lights on and the front door unlocked on Monday night / Tuesday morning of this week. The little girl had been put to bed by her mother between 10-10:30 PM local time but it was her father that found the crib empty when he came home from his night shift job as an electrician—–between 3:30 and 4:00 AM. Tuesday morning.
The parents described their reaction when they discovered Lisa was gone:
“We were running around the house and were screaming for [Lisa] and she was nowhere,” Bradley said. “Then I said, ‘Call 911, call 911.’ But Jeremy couldn’t find the cell phones. They were gone.”
Lisa’s parents have made several heart-wrenching public pleas for the infants safe return. They were scheduled to be on TV this afternoon in another attempt to plead with the kidnapper(s) to return Lisa, when word came there was new activity at the command center. The couple were seen frantically waving their arms and screaming as they were told a new search was underway in the woods, a few hundred yards from their home.
An extensive search has yielded no clues as to what happened to Lisa.
More than 300 investigators have taken up the search for Baby Lisa – using tracking dogs, horse-mounted patrols, helicopters and taking to ropes to rappel down steep slopes.
Officers stood shoulder-to-shoulder as they walked through the woods near her home.
A team of FBI forensic analysts, clad head-to-toe in white sterile suits, meticulously combed the house for any trace evidence.
Both parents, as well as friends, neighbors and family have been extremely cooperative, yet clues are elusive, at best.
This missing baby, Lisa Irwin has a cold and a cough, and is described as having blue eyes, blonde hair, is 30 inches tall and weighs between 26-30 pounds. She was wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it, and she has two bottom teeth. There’s also a small bug bite under her left ear and a beauty mark on her right outer thigh.
I can’t imagine the terror this family is going through, and our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time.
