KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police say that detectives met with the parents of
missing child Lisa Irwin and their attorney on Thursday for the first
time in weeks, but that there aren’t any new breakthroughs in the case.

“Today, detectives met with the parents of Lisa Irwin and their
attorney. Detectives did not learn anything significant but are hopeful
there will be more meetings in the future,” said Kansas City Missouri
Police in a statement, adding that no details of the meeting will be
released.

According to John Picerno, the local attorney for Jeremy Irwin and
Deborah Bradley, the meeting lasted around 90 minutes and was
“productive.” He told FOX 4 that there were both KCPD officers and an
FBI agent at the meeting.

The now-one-year-old girl disappeared from her crib in her parents
Northland home nearly four months ago. Police say that the investigation
into her disappearance continues, but that the leads in the case have
nearly dried up.

The search for answers in the child’s disappearance have brought out
volunteers to help with the search to psychics. There is a $100,000
reward for information that leads to the child’s whereabouts.

The meeting comes on the eve of the family’s appearance on nationally-syndicated “The Dr. Phil Show.”

According to private investigator and Irwin family consultant Bill
Stanton, there will be a press conference on Friday following the
program.

Tanko pleads guilty in Clay County Court

LIBERTY, MO (KCTV) -
The man who was once under a
cloud of suspicion in connection with the disappearance of baby Lisa
Irwin pleaded guilty Thursday morning to an unrelated felony.

John "Jersey" Tanko pleaded guilty to a Class C felony. Tanko admitted to tampering with a motor vehicle on Oct. 13.

As a repeat offender, Tanko could have faced
up to 15 years in prison if prosecutors had sought to declare him a
persistent offender. But prosecutors told Clay County Judge Larry Dale
Harman that in exchange for Tanko's guilty plea that they will not seek
that designation, effectively cutting the maximum sentence in half.

Harman set a sentencing date of March 16.

KCTV5's Heather Staggers was the only
reporter in the courtroom when a handcuffed Tanko pleaded guilty during a
hearing that began at 8:30 a.m.


Tanko was arrested on Oct. 14. He did odd
jobs in the Northland neighborhood from which 10-month-old Lisa Irwin
went missing nearly four months ago. Neighbors also accused Tanko of
committing crimes in the area.

Police questioned him about Lisa's disappearance but Tanko reportedly cooperated with investigators.

Capt. Steve Young, a spokesman for the Kansas City Police Department, reiterated to KCTV Thursday what he has previously said.

"He cooperated with us and we are satisfied with what he told us," Young said.

Kansas City police and the FBI have not cleared anyone in the case if new evidence arises that warrants additional scrutiny.

A telephone owned by Debbie Bradley, Lisa's
mother, attempted to dial a telephone owned by Megan Wright who had
dated Tanko. Wright had raised Tanko in connection with that phone call.


But Tanko's public defender told KCTV5's
Bonyen Lee in December that his client was not a suspect in the baby's
disappearance. This came after John Picerno, an attorney for Lisa's
parents said a witness claimed Tanko was paid $300 to kidnap the child.

But that claim apparently fell apart under scrutiny.

Jeremy Irwin called 911 at 3:58 a.m. Oct. 4
to report that his daughter had been snatched from her crib while
sleeping. Irwin and Bradley are appearing on a national television show
Friday afternoon to discuss their daughter's appearance.

Baby Lisa’s Parents Deny Having Anything To Do With Disappearance, ‘Clinging To A Shred Of Sanity’

Posted on Feb 03, 2012 @ 06:00PM


DrPhil.com
By Debbie Emery - [color=#777]Radar Reporter

It’s been four months since baby Lisa Irwin vanished from her Kansas City, Missouri home and her devastated parents are still adamantly denying having anything to do with her disappearance -- and RadarOnline.com has video of their latest emotional interview.

Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin tearfully opened up to Dr. Phil McGraw on his talk show on Friday, where they finally broke three months of silence.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported,
the blue-eyed baby, who would now be a year old, was allegedly put to
bed by her mom at around 6.40 p.m. on October 4, 2011, but Bradley later
admitted to being “drunk” that night, and further inconsistencies in her story led police to question her account of events.

“I
don’t think it’s an inconsistency,” she told Dr. Phil, admitting she
couldn’t remember exactly if she checked on Lisa or not later in the
evening.

When questioned about the timeline, the 25-year-old mom
began crying and explained: “People don’t understand how difficult it is
to wake up and find that somebody has come into your house and taken
your baby, and then you are accused of doing something to her, covering
something up or whatever insane theories they come up with.

“Then I do all this media and go on TV
with the purpose of hoping and praying that someone saw something, and
it is literally impossible to remember every single detail, and say
exactly the same thing every single time,” Bradley claimed.

Both Deborah and Jeffrey - who appeared on the Dr. Phil Show with their lawyer Joe Tacopina -- who, as RadarOnline.com reported, previously represented convicted killer Joran van der Sloot
- became the focal point of the investigation, especially when they
stopped cooperating with the Kansas City Police Department and later cancelled two interviews between officers and their other children.

“There are so many hateful people who have picked that apart. I understand the ‘looking at the mother
thing,’ because the world we live in today isn’t always a safe and
happy place. There are a lot of crazy people, there are a lot of bad
parents, and a lot of bad things happen, accidents happen.

“Enough
is enough... she is out there somewhere and I am desperate to find her.
I am clinging on to a shred of sanity here. I just want my daughter
back, I want people to realize that if I had done something I’d be in
jail right now,” she explained, while breaking down into floods of
tears.

After pleading her innocence and begging for sympathy from
viewers, Bradley then went on to ask advice from the TV doc about how
to help Lisa’s 8 and 5-year-old half brothers cope with the trauma.

“When
they bring her up, do I help them get through this? I know that even
when she does come home there is going to be permanent damage,” she
said.

Dr. Phil responded: “Normal as you knew it is a thing of
the past. I encourage you to be open about this. Have her picture around
the house and celebrate her as well, don’t just focus on the pain of
her missing.

“Don’t feel guilty if you don’t think about her every minute.”

This story is one I have watched and followed fairly closely as this little girl lived about 4 hours from me! I have NO doubt in my mind her "mother" had something to do with it, I am inclined to agree with Tom that it may have been an accidental death the parents covered up, but either way, one of those two parents know something about this little girl. It's made me terribly paranoid, as I have 2 young girls myself. I hope they find this little girl alive and well, but sadly the reality is that's probably not going to be the case.

Lisa Irwin’s bedroom looks about the same as it did six months ago,
when the Northland toddler disappeared. Stuffed animals line her empty
crib. Photos and other items adorn the walls.Baby Lisa’s story
became a national topic fueled by rumor and speculation. Though her
parents have not planned a public vigil to mark the six-month point,
they remain prayerful that their “Pumpkin Pie” someday will return to
her room.
Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin say that someone broke
into their North Lister Avenue home on a cool October night and snatched
10-month-old Lisa as she slept. They believe that whoever took her has
either sold her or is raising the child as their own.
“It’s been
tough, and they struggle with it,” said their local attorney John
Picerno. “We are still actively searching for Lisa.”
Picerno did
not allow Bradley or Irwin to be interviewed for this story but said the
couple are cooperating with law enforcement authorities.
However, there are no new developments or clues, and the baby’s disappearance remains a mystery, authorities said.
Lisa
no longer is the lead story of national early morning news shows or
nighttime cable television newscasts. And the local and national media
are no longer stationed in front the family’s home.
Picerno said the family has struggled to settle back into a normal routine without Baby Lisa.
Irwin
has returned to his job as an electrician. Lisa’s half-brothers are
back in school. And Bradley remains a stay-at-home mom who makes sure
the household operates as smoothly as possible.
To occupy her time, Picerno said, Bradley has created a website aimed at finding Lisa or gathering clues to her disappearance.
As
of Tuesday night, the website — http://findlisairwin.com — was closed
for maintenance. It had contained numerous photos of Lisa with her
piercing blue eyes and “golden blonde hair that sometimes in the light
appears be auburn.”
“We will be adding new information in the
coming days, and will be updating this site frequently so more people
will know about our child and help us,” according to the website. “Baby
Lisa is very near and dear to our hearts!”
It said Baby Lisa loves
to dance and clap her hands. She can say Mama, Daddy and Bubba, the
names for her half-brothers. She loves bananas, any kind of spaghetti
and usually can’t sleep without her pacifier.
The site also pleaded to those who may have unknowingly seen Lisa with relatives.
“To
the family of the abductors — ATTENTION! All new Grandparents, Aunts
& Uncles — You may be holding our daughter in your arms!”
“The
people who have our daughter LISA have been lying to you! If a new
child 1- 11/2 yrs. old has entered your family after October 4, 2011
PLEASE TAKE A CLOSER LOOK!” the website said.
Picerno said Bradley
has given investigators more than 100 pages of handwritten notes and
other material that contain her recollections from the night Lisa
vanished and details of who else had access to their home.
A
$100,000 reward remains available to anyone with information that brings
Lisa home. Her parents still are represented by New York attorney Joe
Tacopina, and former New York policeman and private detective Bill
Stanton continues to investigate the case.
But Kansas City Police
Capt. Steve Young said tips and leads have slowed. Several detectives
from the crimes against children unit continue their investigation.
“But they have other cases they have to work, so it is back to normal,” Young said.
Lisa’s
case still is classified as a missing or abducted child. Young said at
this point there is no evidence that Lisa has died.
At the height
of the investigation, hundreds of local, county, state and federal law
enforcement officers were involved. Teams searched for Lisa on
horseback, on all-terrain vehicles and on foot, methodically scouring
ravines, open fields, vacant lots, abandoned homes, a 40-foot well and
the banks of the Missouri River. Police and the TIPS Hotline received
more than 1,500 tips.
“The leads are certainly not what they used
to be,” Young said. “The goal is to find out what happened and
hopefully in the process, find the child.”
Young said detectives
last met with the baby’s parents on Feb. 2, the day before their taped
appearance on the Dr. Phil show. Detectives did not learn anything
significant, he said.
Bradley has maintained that she had nothing
to do with her daughter’s disappearance and has pleaded for her return.
Bradley admitted that she had been drinking the night Lisa disappeared
but has said she did nothing to harm the child.
Picerno said the parents have opened their home and have made themselves available to investigators.
“At
this point, the police cannot be displeased,” he said. “They (the
parents) haven’t been suspects, but they have never been cleared. There
is no evidence that I am aware of that points to her (Bradley) in the
remotest way of being involved.”

Baby Lisa’s parents again plead for her return, seek more from police

By GLENN E. RICE - The Kansas City Star
Posted on Mon, May. 21, 2012 01:03 PM

The parents of a missing Northland toddler pleaded today on national television for the return of their daughter, and they released information they say could shed new light on her disappearance.

It has been more than seven months since 10-month-old Lisa Irwin disappeared from her North Lister Avenue home. Her parents, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, say that someone broke into their home and snatched Baby Lisa while she slept. They believe that whoever took her has either sold her or is raising her as their own.

During an appearance this morning on NBC’s “Today Show,” Jeremy Irwin said that someone fraudulently charged $69.04 to his debit card in November, the month after Lisa vanished. The charge was connected to an overseas company that helps people change baby’s names, he said. The card was suspended after that charge happened and two other fraudulent charges were attempted.

“Somebody had my information and tried to use it,” Irwin told host Ann Curry.

The couple said they passed that information to Kansas City police months ago but no new details have emerged with the investigation.

“I am unhappy with what they are telling me,” Deborah Bradley said in the TV interview. “It has been too long and with this development, they’ve had it for a long time, and we still haven’t heard anything.”

Detectives investigated the fraudulent debit card use, said Capt. Steve Young, a Kansas City police spokesman. The card was used to buy stationery but did not appear to be connected to the child’s disappearance, Young said.

“We are not optimistic it is going to turn into anything more than stolen card numbers, at best,” he said.

Bradley said she and Irwin were frustrated with the lack of progress in the case. They have continued to cooperate with federal and local investigators, she said.

“It has been almost eight months, and we’re not getting any answers,” Bradley told Curry. “We understand that the FBI and the KCPD have a job to do, but we need answers. We need Lisa. The answer to us that we are looking at is unacceptable.”

According to authorities, Irwin returned home after working a late shift on Oct. 4 and found the front door of their Kansas City, North home open. He walked through the house and found several lights on and his daughter missing from her crib.

In the weeks afterward, police, federal authorities, members of the Missouri National Guard and volunteers scoured the area looking for the child.

Lisa’s case still is classified as a missing or abducted child. There was no evidence to suggest that Lisa has died, police say.

Bradley repeatedly has said that she had nothing to do with her daughter’s disappearance and has pleaded for her return. Bradley admitted that she had been drinking the night Lisa disappeared but has maintained she did not harm the toddler.

Their attorney, Joe Tacopina, said police did not thoroughly investigate witness claims that on the night of the disappearance they saw a man walking near the Irwin home carrying a baby wearing a diaper.

Young said that accusation “is completely false.” Detectives continue their investigation but there are fewer new leads to pursue, he said.

“The detectives have not washed their hands of the case by any means,” Young said.

More
than seven months after the puzzling disappearance of 10-month-old Lisa
Irwin from her parents’ Kansas City home, her mother and father went on
national television today purporting to have new evidence.


With their lawyer present in an NBC television studio, the parents of
the missing child said they suspect there is a connection to a stolen
bank card. The information was learned late last year.

Jeremy Irwin was appearing on the NBC Today Show via Kansas City KSHB
TV. He said his debit card was used weeks after the toddler vanished,
used to connect with a United Kingdom company that allows adults to
change their babies’ names.

Irwin said he found a $69.04 charge to his card, and “when we first
found out about this back in December, that’s where it used to go, to
the website where you could change somebody’s name online.” Irwin said
the site no longer connects to the service.

Irwin said police had the information but report no progress. He said the family talks often with the FBI.

Kansas City Police Captain Steve Young said the information has yielded nothing.

Baby Lisa was last seen at her parents’ Northland home on October 3rd of last year.

The child’s mother, Deborah Bradley, later said she had been drinking
heavily and fell asleep. Her husband came home early the next morning
to find the door open and an empty crib.

Captain Young said the case is still actively open when genuine new
leads arise and the child is considered to have been abducted or
generally in the category of missing.

Update on missing KC baby case

KANSAS CITY — It's hard to believe but a missing Kansas City toddler has been missing almost a year.

Lisa Irwin was reported missing from her parents' Kansas City home on Oct. 4. in the 3600 block of Lister Avenue.

Deborah Bradley said she put her then 10-month-old daughter to bed on Oct. 3. When father Jeremy Irwin came home from work at 4 a.m., the baby was gone.

At the six month anniversary of the disappearance, KMBC-TV reporter Brenda Washington reported that police have received 1,500 leads -- 90 percent which had been checked out and cleared.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS

Police: Baby Lisa Irwin's mom only one who can provide answers

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Debbie Bradley isn't talking to
investigators and only she can provide needed answers in the
investigation into her missing daughter, Kansas City police said
Friday.

Police issued the statement just ahead of
next week's one-year anniversary of the disappearance of then
10-month-old Lisa Irwin from her Northland home.
t is the most direct comment that police
have made about Bradley since the initial days when the baby was
reported missing on Oct. 4.
Bradley and the child's father, Jeremy Irwin,
maintain their daughter was kidnapped from her crib and they had
nothing to do with her disappearance.

"I just want her back," Irwin told reporters Friday afternoon.


Detectives have exhausted all leads provided by the child's family and their attorneys, according to the statement.

"The leads were of no benefit to the
investigation," according to the statement from Capt. Steve Young.
"While communication with the family has been ongoing, police have not
had the opportunity to sit down one-on-one with Lisa's mother, Deborah
Bradley. As the only adult in the home at the time of the baby's
disappearance, police continue to have questions to which only she can
provide answers."

Irwin had a succinct reply when asked about the police statement. (warning: strong language)


"I think it's bullshit to be honest with you," Irwin said.


In an interview with Reuters this week, John
Picerno, the Kansas City attorney for the parents, said Irwin and
Bradley are giving "100 percent and complete" cooperation to police.

"There is no question she was kidnapped,"
Picerno said. "If there was any foul play involving Deborah or Jeremy we
would (have) heard about it by now."

Young said police "are not putting any label" on Bradley when asked by KCTV5 whether she is a person of interest.

"We still have questions that need answered as the news release states," he said.

Neighbors say Bradley heads out every day
with a fresh stack of fliers and talks to people regularly. Lisa's
picture dots trees and is on family vehicle. One neighbor said Bradley
personally tends a makeshift remembrance for her daughter outside the
home.

The family and neighbors said they hope the
one-year anniversary will lead to needed answers. A vigil will be held
next week in the neighborhood.

"I talk to Deborah all the time. Under the
circumstances, she is doing as well as can be expected," Deborah
Delorenzo said. "She lives with constant hope and prayer for her child
as we all do in this neighborhood."


Police and FBI agents have investigated 1,667 tips since Oct. 4. Officers are working about a dozen tips now.

"Five hundred of the total tips have been
infant sightings across the United States and internationally,"
according to the statement. "Police thank the FBI agents and detectives
at other law enforcement agencies - domestically and overseas - who
investigated each of these sightings. None of them was determined to be
Lisa Irwin."

A Kansas City police detective and FBI agent try to work the case every day.

"They are still looking for quality tips.
They have gone back over nearly 100 previously closed leads,
re-interviewing those involved to ensure they haven't missed anything,"
according to the statement. "Dozens more detectives stand at the ready
to investigate a break in the case."

Detectives have reviewed the entire case file
with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in
Alexandra, VA. Their experts continue to offer their assistance.

"Detectives remain hopeful for quality tips
that will lead them to Lisa," the news release concludes. "However,
several tips stemming from social media and online rumors have been
reported, detracting from detectives' ability to work legitimate case
leads."
Police ask anyone "with substantial knowledge of what happened to Lisa Irwin" to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.

"Because the Lisa Irwin disappearance remains
an active, open investigation, Kansas City police will not grant any
further interviews," according to the news release.

Vigil for Lisa Irwin brings tears, hope


Family and friends attend vigil for Baby Lisa, who disappeared a year ago today.

10/04/2012
A year after 11-month-old Lisa Irwin disappeared, a Northland couple
said Wednesday night they have never given up hope and continue to pray
for their child’s safe return.
Parents Deborah Bradley and Jeremy
Irwin held a candlelight prayer vigil outside their home that was
attended by nearly 100 relatives, neighbors and others.
Throughout
the vigil, Bradley and Irwin held a small tea candle in one hand and
each other tightly with the other. Both sobbed as a prayer was offered.
“Lord,
we ask again today like we do every day for you to safely return Lisa
here to her parents and brothers,” said Irwin’s sister, Ashley Irwin.
“...You’ve numbered the hairs on Lisa’s head, and Lord we know you are
watching after her.”
Today marks the anniversary of Lisa’s
disappearance from her home in the 3600 block of North Lister Avenue.
Her father returned home from his late-shift job on Oct. 4 and found the
front door open, several lights on and her mother asleep. Lisa’s crib
was empty.
“We know everything on this earth happens for a
reason,” Ashley Irwin said. “…. Lord, we sure don’t know what that plan
is and we don’t understand why your plan has to unfold this way but one
thing we do know that if we hold steadfast …. and believe in you; you
will answer our prayers.”
At one point during the prayer, Bradley knelt to console one of Lisa’s half-brothers, who was crying.
Both parents have maintained that someone broke into their home and snatched Lisa while she slept.
Many
attending the vigil wore white T-shirts with the word “kidnapped” above
a large picture of Lisa. The crowd read a prayer seeking God’s
protection of Lisa until she is reunited with her family.
“The light of God surrounds her. The love of God enfolds her,” the
crowd prayed. “The presence of God protects her. The presence of God
watches over her.”
Those in attendance also distributed yellow
“Find Baby Lisa” bracelets, bumper stickers and business cards bearing
Lisa’s face that solicited information on her whereabouts.
Police
have investigated 1,667 tips, including 500 alleged sightings around the
world. Investigators also have shared their case files with national
experts.
Lisa still is classified as a missing or abducted child. There is no evidence to suggest she is dead.
Bradley
has said that she had nothing to do with her daughter’s disappearance,
but she has admitted drinking the night Lisa disappeared.
A
$100,000 reward is still being offered for information about the
disappearance. The couple’s attorney, John Picerno, said Bradley and
Irwin have cooperated with investigators and will continue to do so.
After the vigil, Irwin and Bradley thanked those who have supported them during the ordeal.
“We just ask that you keep Lisa in your prayers,” Bradley said. “We are absolutely not giving up until she comes home.”

What Would Baby Lisa Look Like Today?

by Fox News Insider // Oct 02 2013 // 2:34pm
As seen on The Real Story with Gretchen Carlso

Baby Lisa Irwin disappeared two years ago this week, and her family has just released a photo of what she might look like today. The first year that Lisa vanished from her Kansas City home, there were more than 1,600 leads and tips. Now, police say they are lucky to receive one or two a week.

The investigation is still open, but there is no sign that police are closer to finding Lisa. There is no suspect or person of interest. There’s a $100,000 reward for anyone who has information to help bring her home.

On October 3, 2011, Deborah Bradley said she put her daughter to bed. But when the father, Jeremy Irwin, returned home from work at four o’clock in the morning, the baby was gone. The parents maintain that someone broke into their home and grabbed Lisa while she slept.

Bradley said this week, “I cannot force the people who know where Lisa is and who might have her into telling us. I have no control over that. You do what you can for your baby, because it is your job as a parent to protect your child, and I wasn’t able to protect her from the bad guys.”

The parents believe someone is raising Lisa as their own child and hasn’t harmed her.

The age progression photo shows Lisa at almost three years old.

Baby Lisa’s mother breaks silence on investigation

Posted on: 12:39 pm, October 2, 2013
updated on: 05:16pm, October 2, 2013
by Sarah J. Clark and Kathy Quinn,

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Nearly two years after 10-month-old Lisa Irwin was reported missing from her Kansas City, Mo., home, police released an aged-progression photo. FOX 4′s Kathy Quinn spoke with baby Lisa’s parents about the photo and the investigation on Wednesday.

Lisa’s mother, Deborah Bradley was emotional during the interview, crying and wiping away tears.

“I didn’t want to put it down,” she said of the aged-progression photo. Bradley said she was a mix of emotions when she saw it for the first time.

“It was an overwhelming, so many feelings,” she said. “It was happiness to see her again, but it was sadness that she’s not in person. It was happiness because, hopefully, we’ll be able to use that to help find her. Someone has possibly seen her, knows that that picture is what she looks like and it will help generate leads and tips.”

Oct. 4 will mark two years since Lisa was reported missing. Deborah Bradley and Lisa’s father, Jeremy Irwin, have never agreed to speak with investigators separately. On Wednesday, Bradley said she would do anything to get her daughter back.

“At this point, there is nothing in this world — and I think he (Jeremy) agrees — that we wouldn’t do to get her back,” she said.

Bradley said she understands why police looked at her and Irwin as possible suspects in the beginning, but said now it’s time to move forward. Bradley said the FBI has informed her the investigation is ongoing.

During the interview, Bradley told FOX 4′s Kathy Quinn she wanted to clear up some misconceptions that have been reported in the media. Bradley said no one ever had a cadaver dog in her bedroom and that a “hit” was not made in her bedroom. She insisted she never failed a lie detector test and claims there was police statement issued saying that there was no reason to believe Lisa was dead, but the media never reported it.

Is gypsy girl 'Maria' the missing Baby Lisa? FBI joins investigation as Missouri parents await answers

Published October 22, 2013
FoxNews.com

An American couple whose daughter disappeared in 2011 is asking Greek police to check whether or not she is “Maria,” a blue-eyed blond girl who was found living with alleged abductors at a gypsy camp.



The parents of Lisa Irwin, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, of Kansas City, said they have contacted their local FBI office which has reached out to Greek authorities through governmental channels.

“We are waiting to hear back from law enforcement,” their lawyer, John Picerno, said on Tuesday, according to the Kansas City Star.

"Maria," who is believed to 5 or 6 years old, was taken into protective care last week after DNA tests established that the couple looking after her could not be her biological parents.

Bradley and Irwin say someone broke into their Kansas City home in 2011 and kidnapped Lisa -- who was then ten months old -- while she slept.

"Because of the physical similarities between Lisa and Maria we have contacted the authorities here, as well as overseas, and are waiting for their responses," the couple wrote in an email to Sky News. Lisa would turn 3 years old in November.

The inquiry is reportedly one of eight leads being taken seriously by Greek police as authorities are working to uncover “Maria’s” identity.

Another three are in the U.S. while there are one each in Canada, Sweden, France and Poland, The Telegraph reports. No one has yet come forth to claim “Maria” as their daughter.

The Athens-based Smile of the Child charity, which is looking after the girl, said they have received thousands of calls and emails about “Maria.”

Interpol has searched its missing children database and found 38 girls under the age of six, but none of them matched “Maria’s” description, The Telegraph reports.

In Greece, a prosecutor on Tuesday ordered an emergency nationwide investigation into birth certificates.

Supreme Court prosecutor Efterpi Koutzamani ordered the inquiry for birth certificates issued after Jan. 1, 2008, amid news media reports of potential benefits fraud by families declaring births in multiple regions.

The couple who claimed to be “Maria’s” parents have been jailed on charges of abduction and document fraud, The Associated Press reports.

The two suspects, ages 39 and 40, deny the abduction allegations, claiming they received the child from a destitute woman to bring her up as their own.

Authorities allege the female suspect claimed to have given birth to six children in less than 10 months, while 10 of the 14 children the couple had registered as their own are unaccounted for.

Police say the two suspects received about $3,420 a month in subsidies from three different cities.

On Monday, the mayor of Athens ordered the suspension of three officials in charge of record-keeping. New parents have three months to declare their newborns. Investigators in Athens found a large number of babies had been recently declared at or near the end of that deadline, sending up a red flag because they suspected some were multiple declarations to claim benefits.

Meanwhile, sources told Sky News Tuesday that another blue-eyed blond girl, believed to be around 7 years old and living with a gypsy family in Dublin, Ireland, was also taken into protective care.

The sources said police received a tip from a member of the public on Monday amid heightened concerns over “Maria’s” discovery.

The parents told authorities that the girl was their daughter and showed police documents, but officers weren’t satisfied, according to the BBC.

The child is now in the hands of Ireland’s Health Services while the parents are being questioned by police, Sky News reports.

Parents continue searching for Baby Lisa 3 years after she disappeared from KC home

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - This weekend marks three years since Lisa Irwin disappeared from her home in Kansas City, Mo.

Her parents say they try to get through every day, maintaining structure for their two boys, ages 8 and 11. But constant reminders of their missing daughter make each passing day harder.

“We were talking about Halloween costumes and we got the boys picked out and we're going to go get Lisa's soon,” said Deborah Bradley, Lisa’s mom. “We don't know what she likes. We don't know what her favorite cartoon character is. We don't know her and she doesn't know us.”

Lisa disappeared from her room sometime during the night between Oct. 3 and Oct. 4, 2011. While her story is no longer front page news, her parents say their resolve to find Lisa is still just as strong.

“She's been gone for three years now and somebody at some point in time has got to have taken her to the doctor, to daycare or something,” said Jeremy Irwin, Lisa’s father. “She had to have been out in public somewhere.”

Bradley and Irwin continue to update their website, FindLisaIrwin.com and their Facebook page, Lisa Irwin: Footprints in the Sand . Through these websites, they gain support from people around the world. They also use them to help other families by posting pictures and information of their loved ones.

“It originally started out as a page for her and it grew into a page for other people, so if we can't get her home right now, but we can help somebody else, that means something,” Bradley said.

They also receive tips through the sites, which they immediately pass on to the Kansas City Police Department.

“Even if it's a tip that doesn't pan out, there's no tip too small,” Bradley said.

A spokesman for KCPD told 41 Action News that in the last year, the department has received 100 tips or leads. Each one becomes its own investigation. The department continues to ask anyone with information to come forward or call the TIPS hotline at 816-474-TIPS.

“It's painful to know that it's been three years and Lisa is still not home, but it feels good to know that the community is still watching out for her,” Bradley said.

The family is holding a public vigil on Saturday at 7 p.m. at their home at 3620 North Lister Ave. in Kansas City, Mo.
