Family marks 4 years since Louisville woman's disappearance

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two kids are without their mother and a father, his daughter.

Lisa Green vanished four years ago.

Sunday, her family marked the somber anniversary pleading for something else they are without -- answers. 

"Usually at Christmas time she'll come in and go 'you making green beans dad?' And I'll say 'yeah. They smell good,'" Lisa Green's father, Joseph Green, said. 

Three Christmases, three birthdays, and four Father's Days have passed since Joseph Green last saw his daughter Lisa. And still no clue what happened to the 31-year-old mother of two affectionately called Pooh. 

"It was a Wednesday morning," Joseph Green said. "I said 'where are you going?' She said 'I'm just going out in the driveway daddy.'" 

That was June 25, 2014. The last time Green saw his daughter Lisa as she left her Gilmore Lane home with no purse, no keys and no ID. 

Family and friends gathered at Riverview Park for a vigil on Sunday, as they've done every year since they began praying for answers. 

"People just don't vanish. She's been gone for four years," Paula Watkins, Lisa Green's older sister, said. 

They have their own theories about what happened to Lisa. 

"Honestly I think she was forced to leave. I think she trusted someone and they forced her to go with them, and they hurt her," Leah Coomer, Lisa Green's little sister, said. 

Joseph Green has his own theories about what happened to his little Pooh Bear, and prays the prayer vigil will turn up the pressure. 

"Everybody's saying 'oh she just wandered here, she wandered there.' No, Lisa would have called," he said. 

"Someone knows something out there. And I think it's beyond time for them to finally step up and speak the truth," Watkins said.

Until then, her loved ones hold on to one another, hoping she'll be found.

"It's hard," Joseph Green said. "It's hard. Not a day don't go by I don't think of her. It's hard."
