Ship Manifests

    I'm looking for advice on an unusual scenario please. I'm searching for a person who appears to have gone to the US in the early 1920s for the purpose of escorting a child back to Ireland. I'm unclear on whether or not such a short term visitor would be found in the Ellis Island immigration records and have failed to find any record of ship manifests for sailings from the US to Ireland, or indeed Europe. Dr. Google has failed me so I'm wondering if anyone on here can advise?
