Parents of missing Lisa Irwin hold vigil to mark anniversary

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The parents of a Kansas City baby who disappeared four years ago are holding a prayer vigil at their home to keep the girl’s memory alive.

The Kansas City Star reports Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin see Saturday night’s event as another chance to share Lisa Irwin’s story and age-progression picture.

Lisa was 10 months old when she went missing from her home on Oct. 4, 2011, drawing national attention and sparking a massive search by thousands of law enforcement officers and volunteers.

Irwin and Bradley told police someone came into their home in the early morning and took the girl while Bradley was asleep and Irwin was working.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released an age-progressed photo of her last year.
