MILWAUKEE- We're learning more about the woman accused of abducting a child from a Milwaukee school.

The questions are swirling around Starms Early Childhood Center.  TODAY'S TMJ4 has identified the name of the suspect and TODAY'S TMJ4 is beginning to learn more about how she made her move.

As four-year-old Charity recovers from an abduction, her mom, Paula, is amazed at how this could have happened.

Witnesses saw 33-year-old Lisa Isaac walk into school and take her baby girl, while mom waited in an office just feet away.  "I waited for her a while and she never came, and the teacher came down and said that she had left with a lady with a curly wig, and said I told her to pick her up," said Paula.

Milwaukee Public Schools Communications Director Roseanne St. Aubin told TODAY'S TMJ4 extra security staff has been added to the center.  She maintains Isaac snuck into school with daycare van drivers and snatched the girl.

"That little girl was passing close to that group of people, and the woman took her," said Roseann St. Aubin.

It doesn't end there for Lisa Isaac. 

Staffers at the Evans Academy of Excellence, a nearby daycare, told TODAY'S TMJ4 the woman came in twice, trying to take a child home.

"It looked like she was really looking for a child and she really believed what she was saying, 'my child! Where is my child?'" said office manager Dominique Evans.

As the investigation continues, mom Paula hopes parents will be vigilant and even more careful.
