Kansas City, where the couple lives, has asked the couple to stop putting up posters for their daughter.

The couple maintains that their daughter is still missing.

“It’s hard because we feel like we can’t do a whole lot for her and this is one of the things that we can do for her,” the mother told FOX 4 News. “We just don’t want her to think that we stopped thinking about her and that we don’t care.”

The issue was brought to the attention of the city after an anonymous person tipped them off over the size of the signs.

“The city code allows for no more than 16-square-feet of signs on residential property, according to Channel 10,” USA Today writes.

The sign states, “This house needs Lisa to make it home again. Help bring Lisa home.”

“In 2013, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created an image of what Lisa might look like and shared it on Facebook. That image is a part of some of the signs the girl’s parents have in their lawn,” USA Today writes.
