TAMPA - Sheriff's officials on Tuesday released an age-progressed photo of Sabrina Aisenberg, the infant who disappeared from her parents' Valrico home 10 years ago.
In the picture, provided to the Hillsborough Sheriff's Office by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the brown-haired girl smiles widely, as if in a school picture.
Sabrina vanished Nov. 24, 1997, at 5 months old.
Her parents, Steve and Marlene Aisenberg, became suspects in the high-profile case, but federal attorneys failed in an attempt to prosecute them on charges that they lied to investigators.
In 2003, a federal judge awarded the Aisenbergs $2.9-million in attorneys' fees under a law that allows federal criminal defendants to collect fees from the government if the case against them was frivolous, vexatious or brought in bad faith.
The couple also sued federal prosecutors and the Sheriff's Office, saying their civil rights had been violated in the process.
But they dropped that lawsuit last year, saying they didn't want it to overshadow the search for their daughter.
How to help Anyone with information about Sabrina Aisenberg is asked to call 813-247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
