The parents of missing girl Lisa Irwin contacted Greek authorities when they heard the story of ‘Maria.’ Their own daughter vanished from their Kansas City, MO home in 2011 and the couple believes that she may be the match for Maria, who was discovered living in a gypsy camp.
Jeremy Irwin, 31, and Deborah Bradley, 30, noticed alarming similarities between the mystery girl called “Maria” who was recovered from a Roma settlement in Greece and their own missing daughter, Lisa Irwin. “Baby Lisa” was kidnapped in Oct. 2011, when she was just 11 months old, and her parents maintain hope that she could be their daughter. Do YOU see the similarity in the pictures?

Since Maria’s story was released in hopes of finding her biological parents, thousands of calls have been made to Greek authorities from parents trying to match the girl to their own missing child. While the thousands of leads cannot all be fully investigated, Irwin and Bradley’s case is one of four American leads under investigation, their attorney confirmed to The Daily Mail.
Authorities believe that the Lisa may be too young to be a match to Maria: though no exact age is known for Maria, she is estimated to be between 4 to 6 years old, but Lisa would only be 3.
Lisa Irwin Disappearance
Lisa’s father found her missing from crib on the morning of Oct. 4, 2011. At the time, neighbors told police that they saw a “suspicious man” carrying the baby near the home after midnight.
When a search warrant was issued to search the family’s home after their daughter’s appearance, cadaver dogs made a grim discovery. “On October 17, 2011 an FBI cadaver dog was brought into the residence upon consent of [parents Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin],” the document stated, according to People. “The cadaver dog indicated a positive ‘hit’ for the scent of a deceased human in an area of the floor of Bradley’s bedroom near the bed.”
