KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Two years ago on Friday, Jeremy Irwin called 911 to report that his 10-month-old daughter was missing from her crib.

The search for baby Lisa Irwin captivated the nation and made international headlines. Two years later, her room remains much the same, except now it's filled with clothes she's never worn and birthday and Christmas presents she's never opened.

Irwin and his girlfriend, Debbie Bradley, continue to buy clothes and presents for their missing daughter whose third birthday would be next month. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children released this week a portrait of what Lisa would look like up between her current age and up to five years old.

Bradley said she was overwhelmed, sad and happy when she saw the photo of what her daughter would look like at an older age.

"It's sad because it's not in person yet," she said.

At times, Bradley broke down while speaking exclusively with Inside Edition, which airs at 6:30 p.m. on KCTV5 and 9:30 p.m. on My-KSMO.

"This house is not a home anymore. Not without her," a tearful Bradley said.

She said it doesn't feel like two years since her daughter disappeared.

"It feels more like 10," she said.

Irwin pleaded for answers.

"It only takes one person to make the right call," he said.

Police have had tough questions for Bradley, who was home alone with Lisa and her two older brothers when the baby went missing. But Lisa's parents maintain they had nothing to do with her disappearance, and a stranger abducted her so she could be raised elsewhere.

Bradley said this is a case of human trafficking, and she remains convinced that Lisa will come home one day. She also maintains that her and Irwin have always cooperated with police.

However, police say they want to interview the couple separately and ask tough questions. On the advice of their attorneys, the couple is not doing so.
