A couple of neighbors, Marlene's sister, their lawyer and guests included were the father of Polly Klaas, Mark Klaas. Mark's daughter was taken from her bed in the middle of the night and murdered.

Mrs. Aisenberg has supplied me with photographs of her daughter, Monica, at 9 months, 10 months, 11 months, 12 months, 18 months and 19 months old. Sabina looks very similar to Monica.

Mr. and Mrs. Aisenberg supplied photographs of their daughter Monica, who looked identical to Sabrina when she was her age.

April 03,1998
We are aware of the article that was published in the tabloid "Globe". There are several discrepancies reported in this article. Mr. and Mrs. Aisenberg did not *purchase* a new car - they *leased* the automobile. Hillary Sessions stated that "There were no signs of dirty diapers anywhere when the police searched the house." We know for a fact that there *were* dirty diapers found when they searched the house. I will not go into all of the discrepancies, however, please take this tabloid with a grain of salt. The news media means well at times, but are not always very accurate. We do not want to try this case in the media with a he said...she said... point of view. Lets continue to show out support for *Sabrina*.

April 04,1998
There have been several questions about Sabrina's blanket. The blanket that was taken when Sabrina disappeared was a soft flannel handmade blanket made by a friend's mother. One side was completely yellow; the other side was white with different pastel colored animals with a yellow silk border. This blanket was always in Sabrina's bed and was never taken out of the house.

Mr. and Mrs. Aisenberg will be appearing on "The Kathy Fountain Show", a local television program, on Wednesday, April 8th. They will tape "Geraldo" next week in New York. This segment will air the week of April 13th. The exact date has not yet been determined.

April 12,1998

April 14,1998
This is day 142 since Sabrina disappeared. Mr. and Mrs. Aisenberg appeared on a local television show "The Kathy Fountain Show".

April 20,1998
This is day 148 since Sabrina disappeared. Mr. and Mrs Aisenberg appeared on The Geraldo Rivera Show today, Monday, April 20th, on ABC. The segment was titled "Our Baby Is Missing. Why are we the Suspects." The guests included:

Marlene and Steve Aisenberg - Stated that on the night Sabrina was taken, they had to turn on the air conditioner. The night Sabrina was taken was a warm night, yet the kidnapper took her crib blanket. It is the opinion of the webmaster that whoever took Sabrina was thinking about keeping her safe by taking her crib blanket for familiarity. Geraldo asked Marlene to talk to the kidnappers in a plea to bring Sabrina home to her family.

Mark Klaas - Did not let accusations intimidate him. He said he wouldn't have bought a new car (car was leased) because he was concerned what type of pizza to put down his throat. Steve got very upset at this statement. Steve wants his other children to feel safe and have a normal life. His main concern is finding Sabrina and to protect his family. Mark was wearing Sabrina's pin.

Hillary Sessions - Didn't consult with an attorney. Feels the Aisenbergs should talk to the Sheriff. Hillary was wearing Sabrina's pin.

Barry Cohen - They are at definite odds in this case. He wants all interviews recorded and for him to be present. Lt. Brown stated that the stipulations change constantly by Barry Cohen.

Lt. Greg Brown - The spokesperson for the Hillsborough County Sheriff, was interviewed by telephone. He did not confirm or deny the results of the lie detector tests. He said Mr. and Mrs. Aisenberg are not the only suspects.

Richard Ratcleff - FBI Lie Detector Examiner. His tests revealed that Steve and Marlene Aisenberg passed the test. Geraldo acted out an example of a hostile polygraph test. Richard was wearing Sabrina's pin.

Geraldo wants the interview to take place between the Aisenbergs and the Sheriff's office. One of Geraldo's spokespersons stated that the speculation of how Mr. and Mrs. Aisenberg maintained themselves during interviews by the press is not an issue since Susan Smith cried her eyes out and the whole world believed her. Mr. and Mrs. Aisenberg are very motivated in finding Sabrina. They chose not to let negative comments from their accusers take over their life or to change their focus on finding Sabrina.

April 25,1998
This is day 153 since Sabrina disappeared. The talk shows and news media has thrashed over and over again The Aisenbergs vs. The Sheriff's Department. We would like to continue in our focus on finding "Sabrina". It is the opinion of this webmaster that we start over. Let's get Sabrina's photograph and information out to the media. If you see someone who looks like Sabrina, call the local authorities; get a full license plate number. Did you see her in a shopping mall? Did the person who had her use a charge card that can be traced? Have you known anyone recently who has adopted a baby that looks like Sabrina? Do you know of anyone who has lost a baby in the past six months who now has a baby? Do you have an acquaintance who never leaves the house because they have a new baby? Have you checked on this acquaintance to make sure they are alright or might need your help? Please, if you have any information on Sabrina, call the local authorities.

We would like your feedback on a new venture we are beginning. This venture is in the planning stages at this point, but we need all the help we can get to find Sabrina. The "Sabrina Paige Aisenberg Task Force" and "Marvel Creations" have joined forces and are in the process of putting together a fund raising project called "Help Find Sabrina". This will kick off a huge fund raiser for Sabrina's cause. Please forward your comments to either of the two email addresses below or post your comments on the respective Message Boards below.

May 12, 1998
This is day 170 ( almost 6 months) since Sabrina disappeared. Mr. and Mrs. Aisenberg have been helping the Missing Children's Help Center to fold and mail 90,000 flyers for the past week in order to get Sabrina's picture out there.
