MP of the week: Sabrina Aisenberg

This week’s featured missing person is Sabrina Paige Aisenberg, who was abducted from her crib in Valrico, Florida on November 24, 1997, aged just four months old.

Her parents were subsequently charged with some stuff in the case, but the charges were dropped after it turned out there was basically no actual evidence against them. And there the matter rests.

I know there’s been a lot of suppositions and stuff bandied about on the internet about this case. I once spoke to a man who had been posting a certain photo of a young woman on social media, claiming she was an adult Sabrina. The police had already looked into the matter and told the man she was not Sabrina, but he kept posting the picture and making this untrue claim. I figured if someone was doing that with my photo, I’d want to know about it, so I contacted the woman and told her what was going on. She was horrified.

I doubt Sabrina’s parents were actually involved in the case at all. It seems more likely that the baby was kidnapped by someone who wanted to raise her, or by someone who wanted to sell her for adoption purposes.

Sabrina, if still alive — and there’s really no reason to think she isn’t — would be 25 years old today. She has some Y-shaped marks on her shoulder which might be used to identify her as an adult.

    wow, Sabrina was one of the first missing children’s cases I read about (i was actually thinking about it last night and I’m pretty sure the first case I read about was Monique Daniels at like 10 years old on the missing children’s wiki) but even when I first heard about Sabrina I never thought that the parents did it. of course that was probably my naive child brain but its good to hear that the parents still arent suspects.

      Sabrina’s case was one of the first missing children’s cases I read about, too. I remember discussing it with my mom when the parents were arrested. I was a child at the time (born in 1985).

      I remember the case well because I first heard of it on Unsolved Mysteries. I was 13.

      It makes me so mad that her poor parents were railroaded by these “investigators”. I think it was a knee-jerk reaction in response to the infamous JonBenet Ramsey case. Their logic probably was “We couldn’t get the Ramseys, but we can settle for the Aisenbergs”.

      Horrible. I hope Sabrina can be found.
