American family stepping forward in case of 'mystery girl' in Greece
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An American family is stepping forward, and saying a young girl found in Greece last week was taken from them years ago.
The girl, known only as 'Maria,' still hasn't been identified.
A couple from Kansas City says Maria looks like their daughter, Lisa Irwin, who was taken during a home invasion in 2011.
But Greek police say 'Maria' is too old.
Authorities became suspicious because Maria doesn't look like a native of the Roma community of gypsies, where she was found.
The couple she was living with admit they took 'Maria' illegally, but deny they kidnapped her.
