Lisa Irwin hasn't been seen in over six years. Lisa was only 10 months old when she disappeared from her home on Oct. 3, 2011 at approximately 6 p.m.
Lisa's parents, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, released a new age-progressed picture of their daughter hoping it may lead to the long-awaited break in the case. The picture shows her as she might look now at the age of seven.
They say they can only imagine where she is and what she's doing. The truth is, no one knows. She simply vanished, but her parents say this picture is the most important age-progression picture yet because Lisa should now be in school.
"I feel that having this picture out, knowing that she's probably in a school somewhere with other kids, hopefully, someone will notice that something is not quite right with the situation,” Jeremy Irwin said.
Experts used their infant and childhood photos along with Lisa's baby pictures to create it.
“It's a mixture of feelings, very overwhelming. We want to see her in person. We don’t want to see her in a picture, us having a picture is better than nothing,” Deborah Bradley said.
They say this new picture reminds them of their other children.
Bradley and Jeremy Irwin say Lisa's case has faded from the headlines, but it's still active.
"Police are still working on it. We are in touch with KCPD. We still continue to give them what comes across the table. They assure us an active investigation, and they are definitely still working on it," Jeremy Irwin said.
Lisa's disappearance drew national attention and sparked a massive search by thousands of law enforcement officers and volunteers. Lisa's parents told police someone came into their home in the early morning and took their child while Bradley was asleep and Irwin was working.
"We did it didn't do it," Jeremy Irwin said. "As long as you are still looking for her, that's all I care about."
"We miss her, and there isn't a second goes by that she's not on our mind," Bradley said. "We are all here waiting and looking, hoping and searching. We are never going to give up on you."
"It will happen eventually. We won't stop looking unit we find her," Jeremy Irwin said.
Bradley says she really feels this new age-progression photo is what Lisa would like today.
“I feel like it looks exactly like it should. It's almost like her pictures from when she was around 10 months old, just an older version of her,” Deborah Bradley said.
