(Newser) Good Morning America has obtained a new surveillance video of a “mystery man” leaving a wooded area near the home of missing baby Lisa Irwin around 2:30am the day she disappeared. The video may support two witness reports of a man seen carrying a baby in the early morning hours—the witnesses took notice of the man because they say he was wearing only a T-shirt on the cold night.

A man on a motorcycle says he saw the T-shirt-clad man carrying a baby three miles from the Irwin home around 4am on Oct. 4. A few hours prior to that sighting, a couple also says they saw a similarly dressed man, holding a baby who did not appear to be wearing anything but a diaper. But a former FBI agent questions whether the mystery man was actually involved, since it seems strange that a kidnapper would remain in the same area with the child for hours. “That doesn't make any sense,” he says. “The logic of abducting a child is so you can take the child to some other location.” Police are also investigating a Dumpster fire that took place in the area around the same time.
