Origins: As described above, a 1½-year-old girl named Sophia Summer Tennis went
missing from her Phoenix, Arizona, home on 6 October 2003.
While various web sites assert the child was found safe in November 2009, we've been unable to locate any confirmation in the form of newspaper articles about the child's discovery and return. It's hard to imagine the recovery of a child who had been missing for seven years going unremarked upon in the news of the day, so we're skeptical of this claim.
