Eufaula, AL (March 6, 2013) - Parents of missing daughter are calling for an investigation of her missing daughter Lisa Wallace.
Lisa Wallace (35) from Eufaula, Alabama, was last seen according to police reports by her husband Chris on October 27, 2012 around 1pm at their home. However, the last time anyone else heard from Lisa was October 26, 2012.
According to police, Lisa's husband took their 2-year old daughter to his mother's house following an argument they had around 1pm on October 27th.

NWCAVE's Missing Persons' Division is headed by Shelley Shaffer and Private Investigator Katharine Johnston; are handling the independent investigation into the disappearance of Wallace. œI just want to bring home my daughter one way or another," said Barbara Covey.
Covey believes that investigators and the media need to be asking the questions that are relevant to Lisa's disappearance: Who last saw Lisa? When was Lisa last seen? Why did Lisa's mother have to file a missing person report? Why was there blood in their bathroom and not investigated? Why did specialized K9's come out to Alabama and allowed only five minutes to search the home and then was asked to leave? These questions and many more are bothering Lisa's family and they want and deserve answers.
