Circumstances of Disappearance

Lisa left her home on North 2nd Street in Harrison, New Jersey on October 2, 1994 to go shopping and did not return home. She has not been seen or heard from since.

She left her then 3 and a half year old son in the care of her mother, and she left her home without even a jacket. She only took a small change purse with a photo ID in it and money to pay off her layaway. She was walking from her Harrison home to Kearny's K-Mart on Passaic Avenue. Surveillance videos showed that Lisa never made it to K-Mart.

Lisa left behind $600 in her dresser drawer and did not take any clothing or jewelry with her. When the disappearance first happened, everyone close to Lisa was questioned and cadaver dogs where sent out, but no leads were ever made and no body was ever found.
