KANSAS CITY, Mo. - To recognize the one-year-anniversary of Baby Lisa Irwin's disappearance, her parents are hosting a vigil Wednesday night at their home in the Northland.
During the last year, police have received nearly 2,000 tips, followed-up on hundreds of leads and explored several baby sightings.
"Believe me, we get sightings of babies, and the babies that we see and that are forwarded to us resemble Lisa a lot," family attorney John Picerno said. "But fortunately for us and for Lisa, she has those really beautiful blue eyes. They're very distinctive."
The year-long search has been unsuccessful, but family, friends and volunteers continue to put up fliers of the missing toddler.
"Obviously, they appreciate the support. Obviously anyone who wants to help them in terms of passing out fliers, making the public aware of what's going on, that's fantastic," Picerno said. "We welcome that."
Picerno said police are assisting the family in creating a new sketch or image of Baby Lisa to show what she might look like now. The new flier will also include possible height and weight changes.
The vigil will be held in front of the Baby Lisa's home in the 3600 block of North Lister Avenue. It's scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
