The FBI is investigating whether Greece's mystery girl, taken from a gypsy camp by authorities last week, is Baby Lisa, a missing girl in Kansas City, Mo. although the childrens' ages do not appear to match.

The Associated Press reported that a recent dental examination of the missing girl named "Maria," is now believed to be 5 or 6 years old instead of 4. Lisa Irwin, the girl believed to be taken in Kansas City in 2011, would turn 3 in November.

FBI's Kansas City spokeswoman Bridget Patton told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the disappearance of Lisa Irwin from her home remains an open investigation, and agents follow up on all tips.

Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, Lisa Irwin's parents, have claimed that their child was taken from her crib on Oct. 4, 2011 when she was 10 months old. Jeremy Irwin told authorities that the child was missing and his front door was left open when he returned home from work that evening.

Law enforcement conducted exhaustive searches when Lisa Irwin was first reported missing and a $100,000 reward is still being offered to anyone with information on the girl.

"We’re trying not to get our hopes up too much, but we are very hopeful that she could be Lisa," Bradley told the Kansas City Star. "No matter what pops up that says that it may not be Lisa or it may be Lisa, we are still going to check into it just like we do everything else." 

Baby Lisa's family recently released an age-progression image showing what Lisa might look like now. FBI officials in Kansas City told the Star they have been on contact with Greek law enforcement about the cases.

"We are following up on those calls by reaching out to the Greek authorities just like we would with any investigation by reaching out to our law enforcement partners," Patton told The Star on Tuesday.

Interpol, the international law enforcement agency, told Greek authorities that Maria did not match the DNA of any of its 600 missing girls it had on file, according to CNN.
