KANSAS CITY, Mo. - An attorney for the mother of Baby Lisa's 8-year-old half brother said she filed an emergency custody case Monday to remove the boy from Deborah Bradley and the boy's father, Jeremy Irwin.
Also Monday, police announced that they want to talk to a new witness in the case about the mystery call made from a phone taken from the Irwin home.
A court official acknowledged papers were filed on behalf of the boy's mother, Rasleen Raim, at the Clay County Courthouse, but declined to provide details.
"Now, more than ever, she is concerned about her baby’s safety, comfort and peace of mind," Attorney Dorothy Savory said in a statement. "Rasleen misses her son and has always, and will forever, love him."
Raim is the mother of the 8-year-old half brother that was living in the North Lister home.
Raim and Jeremy Irwin, Lisa’s father, once lived together at the Northland home where Lisa vanished.
In 2008, the couple fought over custody of the child and Jeremy Irwin received full custody.
Savory said she filed Emergency Motion for Temporary Custody and a Motion to Modify Child Custody/Visitation.
"Mrs. Raim has always kept her son, Blake Irwin, in her thoughts and prayers," Savory said.
In an October interview with NBC Action Action News Investigator, Raim said she has not been able to see her son for years.
Ryan asked, “What did you think when you heard about the baby?”
“I thought about my boy, I thought it was mine,” Raim said.
“How much do you miss him?”
“I can't even say…I miss him a lot.”
