FBI investigates whether child found in Greece is missing girl
Dental examination shows mystery girl is older than previously thought
The FBI is looking into whether a child found at a Roma camp in Greece is a missing US girl.
She said the agency began receiving calls after the image of a girl found with a Roma couple appeared in media reports.
A couple charged with abducting the girl are in custody as an international search for the child’s biological parents gathers pace.
A dental examination showed the mystery girl, known only as “Maria”, is older than previously thought, five or six years old instead of four.
Lisa Irwin would be three in November. John Picerno, a lawyer for Lisa’s family, told Kansas City media outlets that he had spoken to authorities about the investigation in Greece.
Mr Irwin said that when he returned home from a late shift on October 4th 2011, the front door was open and the baby was missing.
Police and the FBI conducted extensive searches, even sifting through a Kansas landfill site. No one has been charged.
There is a $100,000 reward offered to anyone with information. Police and a private detective are still investigating, but authorities have said the tips and leads have slowed considerably, down to about one a week.
During the first year, detectives worked more than 1,600 leads and countless baby sightings. Ms Bradley and Mr Irwin have repeatedly said they did not harm Lisa and had nothing to do with her disappearance.
Ms Bradley has said she and Mr Irwin think someone took Lisa and is raising the child as his or her own.
