KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WUSA9) - A two-year-old mystery into a Kansas City baby who disappeared from her own bed in the middle of the night is taking an international twist with the discovery of a fair skinned, blond haired child in Greece living with a couple authorities say aren't her parents.

Baby Lisa Irwin disappeared in October 2011.

Click here to see a timeline, based on a source's report,  showing the last time the baby was seen alive, the mother's night of drinking, the discovery of Baby Lisa missing, I wrote while a investigative reporter at KSHB-TV in Kansas City.

A 2011 Kansas City missing poster tells story of the baby discovered missing by her father as he returned from work in the black of night.

Baby Lisa's parents say police have treated them like suspects and police have said the couple haven't fully cooperated.

Lisa would be almost three. Officials estimate the child found in Greece is five or six, but age progression photos of Baby Lisa do have similarities to the mystery child.

The child's mother said they are doing their own side-by-side comparisons with pictures.

"I was unsure because of the size of the little girl and weight," Deborah Bradley told CNN. "Some of the pictures didn't look like her age progression and it wasn't until we started doing comparison pictures side by side on the computer and we went ahead and just focused on Lisa's face instead of her hair color and that's when we started to notice the resemblance."

CNN reports ten cases of missing children are "being taken very seriously" in connection with the suspected abduction of the child found in Greece according to a children's charity.

An attorney for the arrested couple in Greece says the child was adopted from her biological mother.

"We're just happy that there's a little girl that's going to be returned to her family and their nightmare will end and it gives us even more hope than we already have," Baby Lisa's mother told CNN. "I have immense hope that my daughter is not only ok, but that she's going to come home."

Kansas City Police tweeted "it is highly, highly unlikely" that the child found in Greece is Baby Lisa.
