Police still puzzled over Bridgeport girl who disappeared 15 years ago
BRIDGEPORT – Monday marks a solemn anniversary: the 2001 disappearance of Bianca Lebron.
Police said the fifth-grader told classmates she was leaving school with an “uncle” to go shopping. Attorneys for the city reached a settlement in 2008 to pay $750,000 to the Lebron family. The family filed the lawsuit claiming Bianca’s teacher let her leave without asking Bianca about the “uncle.”
The case remains unsolved and anybody with any information is asked to call Bridgeport Police at 203-576-7671.
