After a plea for help from Tampa parents Steve and Marlene Aisenberg, Michael Jackson is expected to help in the search for Sabrina Aisenberg, who vanished from her crib when she was five months old in November of 1997. Jackson's long-gestating new album will include a song about missing children and is expected to have a picture of Sabrina on the inside cover, the couple told Florida's WTVT-TV on Wednesday. The Aisenbergs, who have never given up the search for their child, believe that their daughter is alive somewhere and being raised by surrogate parents. Police say that over the years every lead in the case, and there have been hundreds, has been exhausted and turned up not a trace of the chubby-faced child, who would be four years old today. Furthermore, the Associated Press was told by authorities (who believe that Sabrina is dead), her parents know what happened to her. The Center for Missing and Exploited Children says that Jackson selected Sabrina and several other missing children to feature on his album. The center says it was asked to put Jackson's lawyers in touch with the parents to get permission to use photographs, the station reported.
