ATHENS, Greece (KMOX/AP) – About ten missing children cases, including missing Kansas City girl, Lisa Irwin, have been given new life in the wake of recent raids on Gypsy families in Europe.

This week officials took a 4-year-old girl living in Greece and a 7-year-old girl living in Ireland into protected custody.

Now an international search is underway to find the biological parents of both girls after birth certificates proved to be faulty.

A dental exam suggests the girl found in Greece is 5 or 6 years old not 4, according to the charity that is caring for her.

But despite the age difference, the parents of Lisa Irwin have asked Greek police to see if the girl is their daughter.

Ten-month-old Lisa was taken from her crib in the middle of the night two years ago, according to her parents Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin. Lisa would turn 3 years old in November.

Tuesday, The Kansas City Star reported that Bradley and Irwin’s attorney has contacted their local FBI office, which contacted Greek authorities.

Lisa’s case received national attention when her parents went on the Dr. Phil show and said they believed their daughter was kidnapped.
