Could New Photo Help Find Infant Abducted 8 Years Ago?

August 11 2005

It was a mother's worst nightmare. On a November morning in 1997, Marlene Aisenberg woke and went into her 5-month-old daughter's bedroom to find an empty crib.

Can an age enhanced photo help identify the girl eight years later?

Vanished From Crib

Family members say Sabrina may look similar, at eight-years-old, to this age-enhanced photo.

Sabrina Aisenberg could neither talk nor walk when cops say she was abducted from her quiet suburban home in Valrico, Florida. On November 24, 1997 five-month-old Sabrina was sleeping in her crib with her favorite baby blanket. At 12:00am, Sabrina's mother went to check on her and everything was fine.

When her mother got up in the morning to get her other two children ready for school, cops say she found out Sabrina was missing. Her favorite blue and yellow blanket was also missing. Authorities say whoever took the girl didn't leave a note, and there was no sign of forced entry.

In 1998, Sabrina's parents went on NBC's "Good Morning America" in hopes of finding Sabrina through a $75,000 reward.



Would Sabrina Recognize Herself?

Since Sabrina was only 5 months old at the time of her abduction, her appearance would clearly have changed drastically. In 1997 Sabrina had blue eyes and brown hair. An older sister looked similar as an infant. As she aged, her eyes turned brown and her turned lighter.

Forensic experts have created an age-enhanced image of how Sabrina might look now. She would have turned eight on June 17, 2005. If she's out there somewhere, would she recognize herself?

Figure In Baby Sabrina Case Heading To Federal Prison

January 22, 2009

TAMPA - A man who figured prominently last year in the investigation into the 1997 disappearance of Sabrina Aisenberg was sentenced today to 37 months in federal prison on a weapons charge.

Scott Overbeck, 44, pleaded guilty in October to being a felon in possession of an explosive device, a crime that doesn't require the offender to have any intent to use the device. Overbeck has said he didn't plan to hurt anyone with the improvised explosive device investigators found in his bedroom.

U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Kovachevich told Overbeck it is time he straightened out his life after a 20-year record of crimes, including drug offenses and assaulting police officers. One more crime, she said, and he would be "warehoused" in prison with no hope left.

Public defender David Secular said Overbeck "has struggled with substance abuse difficulties throughout his life that he's never gotten appropriate treatment for." He said Overbeck hopes to use his prison sentence to get treatment.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Riedel said the homemade bomb found in Overbeck's bedroom was extremely dangerous and had to be detonated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Agents described the device as being made with a 1 1/2- to 2-inch commercial fireworks mortar shell with an 8-inch fuse and five skeet-loaded shotgun shells duct-taped to the perimeter. It also contained explosive powders.

"He thought it was of a much more benign character," Secular said. "He thought it was nothing more than a firecracker."

"It's a good thing he doesn't celebrate the Fourth of July," the judge said.

The Aisenberg investigation was in the news last summer amid reports Overbeck had claimed he purchased a 12-foot boat from Sabrina's mother, Marlene, and speculated the boat once carried the body of the 5-month-old child, who disappeared from her Valrico home and has not been found.

A sheriff's office informant, Dennis Byron, reportedly said Overbeck admitted chopping up the baby's body after Marlene Aisenberg killed the child in the boat.

Missing Baby Cold Case Unthaws

July 28, 2008


(CBS/ AP)  An alleged jailhouse confession has unearthed a new lead in the disappearance of a 5-month-old girl in 1997.

The St. Petersburg Times reported Sunday that detectives have recently focused on a man serving prison time on unrelated federal charges.

Sabrina Aisenberg vanished days before Thanksgiving. Her parents, Steve and Marlene, were indicted in 1999 on federal charges that they lied about their daughter's disappearance. Those charges were later dropped when a judge questioned the validity of wiretaps used to collect information on the Aisenbergs.

The newspaper reported that sheriff's investigators are now focusing on Scott Overbeck, a prisoner who has been serving time on unrelated charges. Authorities had a fellow inmate wear a wire to get Overbeck to detail what he knew about the disappearance. Overbeck allegedly told the informant that he was asked to dispose of the infant's body, which was inside a boat he had retrieved from the Aisenberg's home.

According to the informant, Dennis Byron, a former acquaintance of Overbeck who is serving a six-year sentence at a Gainesville, Fla., prison, Overbeck said he was asked to get rid of the baby's body at the request of an investigator working for a law firm that was going to represent the Aisenbergs, the newspaper reported.

Overbeck also told Byron that he chopped up the baby's body and disposed of the remains in crab traps.

"Without some corroboration, there's not going to be enough here to prove this case beyond a reasonable doubt," CBS News legal analyst Lisa Bloom said of Byron's information. "This is not enough standing alone."

The newspaper based its reporting on a sworn statement Byron gave investigators.

The sheriff's office is refusing to comment on the newspaper's report. Some of the Aisenbergs' former neighbors said that detectives have recently come around with sheets of mug shots for them to look at.

But the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said in a statement Sunday that because the case remains open, officials will not discuss any details of the leads that continue to come forward.

The FBI had recordings from bugging the home of the Aisenbergs. This clearly shows another case of police officer "Tunnel Vision".  These recordings the FBI used to obtain a warrant for the arrest of both Mr.& Mrs. Aisenberg were so inaudible that nothing could be heard. These recordings are what they based their warrants on. Police told the Judge that Mrs. Aisenberg's 911 call was unemotional as well. I heard Mrs. Aisenberg's 911 call it was far from unemotional.  A week after the Aisenberg's were arrested charges were dropped. Stephen Kunz sharply criticized, the lead prosecutor had been accused of lying in court and trying to convict innocent people. He too was being investigated by the DOJ at the time he was on this case. The Aisenbergs still have a room for Sabrina Paige. They buy her souvenirs when they go on vacation. They feel Sabrina is being raised by another family that wanted a child, they also believe as she is alive and well.  There is a updated link at the bottom of the page. The story is too sick to print. I don't believe this happened and I don't believe the family believes this either nor the police.

Coldcase Florida Baby
Whatever happened to baby Sabrina?


(CNN) -- Whatever happened to baby Sabrina?

After vanishing from her home in 1997, Sabrina Aisenberg's whereabouts remain a mystery.

Parents Marlene Aisenberg, 47, and Steve Aisenberg, 46, continue to believe their daughter, who would be 12 now, was kidnapped and is being raised by another family.

"We just can't shake the feeling that Sabrina is alive," Steve Aisenberg said. " We think that whoever took our daughter did so because they desperately wanted a child of their own. But we want her back. She belongs with us."

Some believe the Aisenbergs were involved in their baby's disappearance.

In 1999, federal prosecutors in Florida filed charges against Marlene and Steve Aisenberg for conspiracy and false statements.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office conducted wire-tappings and recorded conversations in the Aisenbergs' bedroom and kitchen, according to the Aisenbergs. But in 2001, a federal judge accused the detectives of lying about their case against the Aisenbergs. The judge ordered some of the evidence collected from the bugs to be thrown out.

The charges against the Aisenbergs were dismissed in 2001, and prosecutors acknowledged they wrongfully prosecuted the couple.

Then in 2008, authorities began to question the couple again when Hillsborough Police in Florida received a tip from a credible jail informant, according to the St. Petersburg Times. The informant said the Aisenbergs had sold their boat to him to dispose of baby Sabrina's body at sea. The Aisenbergs deny the informant's claims and said they've never had a boat.

Police said they won't comment about the boat lead.

Sabrina disappeared on November 24, 1997, in the small town of Valrico, Florida. The Aisenbergs said they lived in a safe community, so they sometimes left the windows and doors unlocked in the single-story, ranch-style home they shared with their three children -- an 8-year-old son, 4-year-old daughter and 5-month-old Sabrina.

Each night, Marlene Aisenberg put Sabrina to bed in her crib.

"Sabrina was an easy baby, she always slept through the night after the first month," Steve Aisenberg said.

The master bedroom where the Aisenbergs slept was on the opposite side of the home from the children's bedrooms. They said that made it hard to hear small noises from the children's rooms. The couple said they didn't hear anything the night of Sabrina's disappearance.

The next morning, Marlene Aisenberg said, when she went to wake the children up for school, she discovered Sabrina missing from her crib along with her yellow blanket.

"I heard my wife's screams," recalled Steve Aisenberg. "We searched in the house, and that's when my wife noticed the garage door had been left open and even worse, that the door leading from the garage to the laundry room and into our house was wide open."

Steve Aisenberg called 911 while Marlene frantically asked neighbors if they had seen Sabrina.

In the next few years, the Aisenbergs and authorities continued to search for Sabrina. They appeared in national media urging the public to help find their child.

In 2003, the Aisenbergs say, they filed a civil lawsuit seeking millions of dollars against Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office and federal prosecutors. The suit alleged malicious prosecution. The suit against the federal prosecutors was dropped in 2004 after a judge ruled they could not be sued. The couple says they voluntarily dismissed the suit against the Sheriff's Office.

They Aisenbergs say in May 2003 they became hopeful about finding their daughter when an Illinois girl fitting Sabrina's description was found.But a DNA test was performed and revealed she was not their child.

Today, police will not comment on whether they have any suspects.

"The case of Sabrina Aisenberg is an open and active investigation," said a spokesperson for the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. Officials would not comment on details of the investigation.

The Aisenbergs have created age progression photos showing what Sabrina might look like today. The family and police ask for the public's help.

If anyone has information leading to the whereabouts of Sabrina Aisenberg, please call the tip line at 813-247-8200.
