Five-day-old Raymond's mother, Donna Green, met an African-American woman while she was watching Raymond through the nursery window at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia after his birth.
The woman, who called herself Lisa Morris, fell into conversation with Donna and said she was visiting her sister who had just given birth. Morris is described as 23 or 24 years old, 5'5 or 5'6 tall, with light skin, a small nose, full lips and dark eyes. She wore a short dark-colored leather coat.
Donna and Lisa went back to Donna's hospital room and they talked. Lisa asked many questions about Donna and the baby. She continued to visit Donna periodically for the rest of Donna's stay in the hospital.
On November 6, 1978, Lisa arrived uninvited at Donna's apartment and said she wanted to see how she and Raymond were. Donna let her in and about an hour later, she went to take a shower, leaving Lisa sitting on the couch with Raymond and Raymond's uncle. Raymond was with Lisa at the time and his uncle was drowsing.
When Donna emerged from the shower a few minutes later, Lisa and Raymond were gone. Her brother told her Raymond had started crying and Lisa picked him up and took him outside.
Donna went outside to look for them and a neighbor told her she saw Lisa carrying Raymond, who was wrapped in a blue blanket and they got in to the passenger side of a brown vehicle which then drove away. Neither Lisa nor the baby have ever been seen again.
Authorities determined all the information she provided Donna was false: nobody with a sister named Lisa Morris had given birth at Grady Memorial Hospital and there was no one by that name in the Atlanta area matched the physical description of the abductor.
Lisa has never been identified and authorities believe Raymond may have been sold for adoption outside the United States.
Raymond was the second of Donna's six children, born when she was only 15 years old. His father is dead, but Donna is still alive and hopes he may be found. She now lives in Jonesboro, Georgia.
Raymond's case remains unsolved. He has black hair and a lazy eye.
