Police released an age enhanced photo of what Lebron might look like today at age 23. She was 10 years old when she was last seen on November 7, 2001.

Police said at the time, 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 this uncle.

In a statement, Detective John Burke, the lead investigator in the case, said:

“I believe there are people who have information that can help us,” said . We want to bring her home. The Police Department has not forgotten about Bianca. The community has not forgotten her. We need their help.

Detective Burke can be contacted at 203-581-5183.
