Lisa Miller has missed the deadline to hand over custody of Isabella, her daughter with ex-partner Janet Jenkins. A judge had ordered her to do so by 1 pm EST today. Miller and Isabella have both been missing for weeks.
[Vermont Family Court Judge William] Cohen awarded custody to Jenkins on Nov. 20 after finding Miller in contempt of court for denying Jenkins access to the girl. The judge said the only way to ensure equal access to the child was to switch custody.
But Cohen also noted that it appeared Miller had stopped speaking to her attorneys and “disappeared” with the child.
Miller’s last known address is in Forest, Va. A telephone number listed for her at that address rang unanswered Friday.
Jenkins has asked for anybody who spots Isabella to please contact the authorities.
