RUTLAND, Vt. -- A judge refereeing a child-custody dispute between former lesbian partners balked Friday at issuing a contempt citation for one of them and instead gave her 30 days to appear in court with the girl or face arrest. Lisa Miller has disappeared with 7-year-old Isabella Miller-Jenkins, and Miller's former partner renewed her call for help finding the girl.
"Every day I wonder where she is, and if she's OK," said Janet Jenkins, of Fair Haven. "Every time the phone rings, I hope it is someone calling to tell me they have found her."
