The parents of missing baby Lisa Irwin, Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley, officially ended the prayer vigils for their daughter and declared that the one on Tuesday night would be the last. It follows last week’s news that the command post for the investigation was being shut down and that detectives who were assigned to the case would move on to other tasks.
Kansas City volunteers and neighbors had been holding nightly vigils for Lisa outside the Irwin household ever since the young girl went missing, but Bradley has apparently decided that it is best if her family is left alone.
It might be a sign that the parents are starting to give up hope, as the chances that Lisa is still alive after being gone for so long have drastically decreased. There have also been no significant developments in the case for a number of weeks now.
Citizens, however, are refusing to give up on the infant whose tragic case has captivated the city and the entire nation. There was talk on Facebook of a gathering by the thousands outside of the Irwin home where people could pray on public property regardless of Bradley’s wishes.
A witness report on CNN that shared a video of the last night of Lisa’s vigil wrote that “The Band of Lisa’s Angels,” a group of volunteers dedicated to finding the missing baby Lisa, will not be giving up and will continue to search and hope that she is alive. The source also revealed that the prayers will continue elsewhere and vowed that the citizens of Kansas City will not “walk away” from their mission.
Meanwhile, Lisa’s family will have to continue the custody battle for her eight-year-old brother Blake, as his biological mother is set on having him removed from the Irwin household and brought back to her, citing how suspicious the situation around the parents still is.
