Friends of missing woman Lisa Miller say they have no idea where she or her daughter have been for the last six months. Miller, who is in the middle of a custody battle with former partner Janet Jenkins, has been missing since last September, allegedly taking off with their 7-year-old daughter, Isabella.
According to a report by WSET TV in Virginia, most of Miller's friends say it has been six months since they've seen her. A court in Vermont, where Miller and Jenkins were joined in a civil union, had awarded full custody of Isabella to Jenkins; the conservative legal group Liberty Counsel is appealing that order on Miller's behalf. But Miller and the child have disappeared.
"Unbeknowing to any of us, she was doing something behind the scenes," said Linda Wall, one of the last people to see Miller.
Wall, like Miller, said that she was able to "leave homosexuality." She said that Miller knew she would not be able to maintain custody of Isabella and that the two started talking about what she would do if she were ordered to give up the child. Wall added that offers came from as far away as Israel to hide them but said she had nothing to do with their escape.
Wall also compared herself to Harriet Tubman, who led slaves in the South to freedom in the Northern states before slavery was abolished.
