Amber Alert Issued For 10-Month-Old

Police Say It Appears Someone Entered Baby's Room Through Window

POSTED: 7:12 am CDT October 4, 2011
UPDATED: 9:23 am CDT October 4, 2011




KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City police have issued an Amber Alert for a missing 10-month-old girl who disappeared from her home overnight.

Police said Lisa Irwin was last seen on Monday at 10:30 p.m. asleep in her crib. Officers were called to the house in the 3600 block of North Lister Avenue at 4 a.m. by the girl's parents.

Police could be seen dusting for fingerprints at the home. Initially, officers were closely examining a window.
"A window looked like it might be a point of entry, but we're trying to put all the pieces together," police Capt. Steve Young said.

Police said Lisa has blue eyes and blond hair. She is 30 inches tall and weighs 26 to 30 pounds. She has two bottom teeth, a small bug bite under her left ear, a beauty mark on her right outer thigh and currently has a cold with a cough.
The baby was last seen wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it.

Call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477 if you know her whereabouts.
Detectives were interviewing the girl's parents at the home.
"I realize that some of these Amber Alerts involve parents or parental abductions, but we have both the parents here. So that puts us on a little higher state of alert," police Sgt. Stacey Graves said.

AMBER ALERT issued for missing 10-month-old girl in KCMO

Posted: 7:29 AM
Last Updated: 2 minutes ago
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Police have issued an AMBER Alert for a missing 10-month-old girl they believe has been abducted from her home.
Officials are looking for Lisa Irwin who was last seen in her crib at approximately 10:30 p.m. Monday night at a residence in the 3600 block of North Lister in Kansas City, Missouri. Her parents notified police at 4 a.m. Tuesday that she was missing.
She is described as follows:
blonde hair
blue eyes
30-inches tall
weighs 26-30 lbs.
has two bottom teeth
a beauty mark on right outer thigh
currently has a cold with a cough and a small bug bite under her left ear.
last seen wearing purple shorts/pants with white kittens printed.

According to a news release, officers believe a suspect "entered/exited through a bedroom window." Police also say that evidence suggests the child has been abducted.

Kansas City spokeswoman Stacey Graves says while many AMBER Alerts are parental or custodial issues, both of the girl's parents were at home at the time she went missing.
"We have both the parents here," Kansas City spokeswoman Stacey Graves said in an interview with reporters on scene. "That puts us on a little higher state of alert."
Police on scene tell NBC Action News two other pre-teen children, both boys, live at the house and were home at the time of the abduction, but both were safe and accounted for. They were sleeping in a separate bedroom.
If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of Lisa Irwin, you are urged to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.

Police Use Variety Of Resources In Missing Baby Case

KC Police Say Lisa Irwin Last Seen In Crib Late Monday Night

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City police said they're using a variety of resources and following leads in the kidnapping of a 10-month-old girl from her home.
Police issued an Amber Alert for Lisa Irwin early Tuesday morning. The baby was last seen at 10:30 p.m. Monday asleep in her crib at her parents' home in the 3600 block of North Lister Avenue.

olice said Lisa's father called for help at 4 a.m. after discovering that she was gone.
KMBC's Peggy Breit reported that the girl's mother was taken in a unmarked police car to police headquarters for an interview. Breit reported that is routine in an investigation like this. Both parents had been interviewed at the home earlier in the morning, and police said they were both cooperative. Breit also reported that a couple of children who were in the home at the time of the abduction would be talked to by investigators, as well.
"I realize that some of these Amber Alerts involve parents or parental abductions, but we have both the parents here. So that puts us on a little higher state of alert," police Sgt. Stacey Graves said.

Throughout the morning, investigators could be seen dusting for fingerprints at the home. Initially, police officers were closely examining a window. But authorities stressed that they were looking at all possibilities.
"A window looked like it might be a point of entry, but we're trying to put all the pieces together," police Capt. Steve Young said.

Police said Lisa has blue eyes and blond hair. She is 30 inches tall and weighs 26 to 30 pounds. She has two bottom teeth, a small bug bite under her left ear, a beauty mark on her right outer thigh and currently has a cold with a cough.
The baby was last seen wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it.
Anyone with information was urged to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
Breit reported that the FBI was also involved in the investigation. Agents were seen going inside the house and searching outside it.
KMBC's Micheal Mahoney reported that authorities concentrated some of their search efforts in a wooded area to the west of home.
Mahoney also pointed out that the location of the home is not a place where you can get to by accident. The street is on a windy complex of roads, and he reported that you really have to know where you're going to get to the house.
Police said that they are searching a handful of areas, including near Chouteau Trafficway and Parvin Road.

100 Officers Investigate 10-Month-Old's Abduction
KC Police Say Lisa Irwin Last Seen In Crib Late Monday Night

POSTED: 7:12 am CDT October 4, 2011
UPDATED: 5:23 pm CDT October 4, 2011
"We're working some angles, but there are no hard leads," Police Capt. Steve Young said during an afternoon news briefing.

About 100 officers and mounted patrol units were actively investigating the case and searching a handful of areas, including near Chouteau Trafficway and Parvin Road. KMBC's Cliff Judy reported that Kansas City Fire search and rescue crews rappelled down the side of a steep drop off at 34th Terrace and North Myrtle, looking for Irwin.
Crews used chainsaws and other heavy equipment to clear debris. They called off the search along the hillside just before 5 p.m., having found nothing.

From KCMO Police: "The AMBER Alert system is
designed to raise awareness early in an investigation to alert the
public in an attempt to recover a juvenile in danger. Although the
investigation and search for Lisa Irwin continues, an active AMBER
Alert is no longer necessary in this case. Lisa Irwin is still
considered a Missing/Endangered Juvenile.

Officers and
detectives will continue to work throughout the night in an attempt to
find Lisa Irwin. This is an on-going investigation and will continue to
be actively investigated until Lisa Irwin is found.

We urge anyone with information to call 911 or contact the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477."

Parents Plea For Missing Baby's Safe Return

10-Month-Old Disappeared From Her Parents' Home


POSTED: 6:58 am CDT October 5, 2011

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- In a brief, but emotional statement, the parents of 10-month-old Lisa Irwin pleaded for her safe return on Wednesday.
Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley read from a prepared statement and took no questions from the media.
"On Monday night or Tuesday morning, our daughter, Lisa, was taken from our home. We urge anyone with information as to where she is or who's she's with or anything to please call the TIPS Hotline or police," Irwin said. "Anything, even the smallest bit of information could help lead to her return. Anybody who might have her, they can drop her off at any place safe -- a fire station or hospital or church. No questions asked. We just want to have her back."
"We just want our baby back. Please, bring her home," said a tearful Deborah Bradley. "Our two other boys are waiting for her, please. Just drop her off anywhere. We don't care, just somewhere safe, where she can come home, please."

Kansas City police and FBI agents continued their investigation and search for the baby. K-9 units again searched a wooded area near the Irwin home late Wednesday morning. Crews searched that same area the day before. Young said there was no particular lead that pointed them to that area, investigators simply wanted to search it one more time.
FBI agents in protective suits went over the outside and inside of the Irwin home. Investigators seemed to focus on a window the parents said could have been left open. One investigator vacuumed the window in an effort to collect trace evidence.
But police Capt. Steve Young said there have been no major leads in the case.
"The only thing we know absolutely is that there should have been a 10-month-old in that house and there isn't, and we're doing everything we can to find that child," Young said.

Lisa disappeared from her parents' home in the 3600 block of North Lister Avenue. She was last seen sleeping in her crib at 10:30 p.m. on Monday. Police said her father called for help at 4 a.m. after discovering that she was missing when he returned from an overnight job.
An Amber Alert was issued a short time later, but by evening, police had canceled it, saying the alert was designed to raise awareness with the public early in the investigation. But police stressed that the search for the baby would continue.

Police spent most of Tuesday talking with the baby's parents. Investigators said the couple has been cooperative in the investigation. They were released late Tuesday night, and detectives said no new leads were developed.
"Nobody knows more about what's going on in that house than the parents do. They were cooperative with us all day yesterday and into yesterday evening, as well," Young said.

Young said the search for Lisa would continue, although it would be scaled back somewhat. Young said 30 to 40 investigators remained at the command post and another 50 investigators were available to help follow up leads.
"I know our detectives are probably frustrated. Time is critical. But as long as we're getting leads, we're going to follow up on them," Young said.
Two members from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were expected to arrive in Kansas City Wednesday.

Police said Lisa has blue eyes and blond hair. She is 30 inches tall and weighs 26 to 30 pounds. She has two bottom teeth, a small bug bite under her left ear, a beauty mark on her right outer thigh and currently has a cold with a cough.
The baby was last seen wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it.
Anyone with information was urged to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.

The parents of a missing 10-month-old Missouri girl issued an
impassioned plea for her return Wednesday, as police said they have
found little to go on in investigating her disappearance.
"We just want our baby back," Deborah Irwin, clutching a teddy bear
and crying, said of her daughter Lisa. "Please bring her home. Our two
other boys are waiting for her. Please, just drop her off anywhere, we
don't care. Just somewhere safe where she can come home, please."

Her husband, Jeremy, urged anyone with information to call police.
"Anything, even the smallest information, could help lead to her
return," he said.

Lisa Irwin was last seen at about 10:30 p.m. Monday, asleep in her
crib, Kansas City, Missouri, police said. Police were called to the home
at about 4 a.m. Tuesday.

"It appears the suspect entered/exited through a bedroom window,"
authorities said in a statement. "Evidence at the scene leads police to
believe the child has been abducted."

Jeremy Irwin discovered the child missing when he arrived home from work, CNN affiliate KSHB reported.

Police have said the Irwins are not considered suspects in Lisa's
disappearance. Police Capt. Steve Young on Wednesday told reporters the
family has been cooperative from the beginning of the investigation, but
"everything is still on the table. We haven't ruled anything out."

He said investigators "really haven't developed any good, hard
information that we can go forward with." Nearly 50 tips have been
received through a tip hotline, he said, but not all of them have been
pursued, as some of them have been vague -- a person calling to report a
child seat seen in a car, for instance.

"I know everybody's hearts are in the right place, but that's not anything we can do anything with," Young said.

Police have conducted more than 300 "knock-and-talks" and searches of
residences in the area, and more than 300 officers were searching for
Lisa. There have been three searches of a wooded area near the family's
home, he said.

"I promise you, if there's anything we think we can be doing, we've probably done it two or three times already," Young said.

Mom of missing Mo. girl: 'We just want our baby back'
Parents plead for child's return; police have no suspects in disappearance of 10-month-old

updated 1 hour 1 minute ago

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The parents of a missing 10-month-old Kansas City girl begged that she be dropped off someplace safe, no questions asked, prompting the mother to plead: "We just want our baby back."

The parents, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, spoke to the media for the first time Wednesday afternoon, almost two days after their child, Lisa, disappeared from her crib.

The couple made a tearful plea, urging people to come forward with information about their child and took no questions from reporters.

"Anything, even the smallest bit of information could lead to her return," the father said.

Lisa Irwin was last seen around 10:30 p.m. Monday when her mother put her to bed. Her father, an electrician, discovered Lisa missing when he got home around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday from a late-night shift at work, police said.



"Detectives are looking at every possible angle," Capt. Steve Young of the Kansas City Police Department told msnbc.com. "All we know is that there should've been a 10-month-old in that house and we are doing everything we can to find the kid."

On Wednesday, FBI agents with dogs searched the family's home, a light-green ranch-style home in an older neighborhood along a winding street near hills. An FBI spokeswoman acknowledged the agency was committing significant resources to the search, but declined to discuss why the agents entered the home or what they found.

Officers scoured the neighborhood and knocked doors throughout the neighborhood in their hunt for Lisa Irwin.

"We've received several tips and we certainly encourage people to call, but we also need information that is specific to the case," Young told msnbc.com.

Police discounted the notion that Lisa could have crawled away and are investigating the possibility that an intruder entered the home through a window and snatched her.

Young said the parents have been cooperative and aren't considered suspects. "As you can imagine nobody knows more about what's going on in that house than the parents do," he said.

A daylong search Tuesday that included more than 100 officers, FBI agents, and police dogs yielded no substantial clues. Interviews with the parents that ended late Tuesday also didn't provide any clues, Young said.

Nothing turned up around the house or in a search of the two cars in the family's driveway either, investigators said, according to NBC's Peter Alexander.

The parents were staying with relatives away from their northern Kansas City home. Police said they were aware of the parents whereabouts, but would not disclose their location.

Lisa Irwin’s grandparents and neighbors told KSHB-TV, NBC News affiliate in Kansas City, they have not heard from the couple since they left police questioning Tuesday evening. The grandparents told the TV station that they were caring for the couple's two other children.

Tip from neighbor 'went nowhere'
Police canceled the Amber Alert Tuesday evening since the public awareness had been raised.

Police spokesman Darin Snapp said a report that a neighbor saw a man in the neighborhood carrying a baby overnight Tuesday "went nowhere."

Lisa has blue eyes and blond hair. She is 30 inches tall and weighs between 26 and 30 pounds. Police say she has two bottom teeth, a small bug bite under her left ear and a beauty mark on her right thigh. She also has a cold with a cough.

She was wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it.

Lisa's parents: Cell phones missing after baby abducted

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -
Missing 10 month-old Lisa Irwin's parents spoke in-depth Thursday morning about their daughter.

They said their cell phones were stolen but that nothing else appears to be missing from their home.

They also described the first few moments when they discovered that their little girl was missing from her crib inside their home in the 3600 block of North Lister Ave.

They frantically searched their home but discovered only an open window, an unlocked front door and lights turned on.

Jeremy Irwin said he immediately knew something was wrong when he returned home from work early Tuesday.

Jeremy Irwin said he came home from his overnight shift around 4 a.m. Tuesday. He noticed a window opened in the front of the house. After checking on his 6- and 8-year-old sons he went to the bedroom of his daughter, Lisa, and noticed Lisa missing.

Lisa's parents said early Thursday that they can't think of anyone who would abduct their child, and that no one had shown an unusual interest in her before she was taken.

Police conducted checkpoints in the neighborhood during the overnight hours Wednesday, hoping to catch possible witnesses up in the time frame when authorities believe Lisa was taken.

Police said they have followed up on nearly 50 leads between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

The parents of missing 10-month-old Lisa Irwin made an emotional plea for her safe return Wednesday afternoon.

"We just want our baby back. Please bring her home," Deborah Bradley tearfully pleaded.

Jeremy Irwin spoke softly and slowly as he asked his daughter's abductor to drop her off somewhere. He also asked the public to provide tips.

"Anything, even the smallest bit of information could help lead to her return," said Irwin, who sniffled several times during his initial remarks. "Anybody who have her. You can drop her off at any place safe, a fire station, a hospital, a church, no questions asked."

As he was speaking, the baby's weeping mother interrupted him to plead for her daughter's safe return.

"Our two other boys are waiting for her," Bradley said. "Please. Drop her off anywhere, we don't care, just somewhere safe. Where she can come home, please."

Irwin also thanked all the searchers and volunteers who are assisting in finding his daughter.

Crime scene technicians in white suits on Wednesday are combing the parents' Northland home and backyard for clues in an effort to find Lisa. Agents focused on a first-floor window through which the family believes the kidnapper entered the home.

Dogs are also being used in an effort to find the girl's scent. Officers on all-terrain vehicles searched a sandpit north of Highway 210 Wednesday afternoon.

A Kansas City patrol car is stationed outside Lisa's home around-the-clock.

Police issued an Amber Alert about 7:15 a.m., about three hours after her parents said they discovered her missing. The parents said the girl was snatched from her crib as she was sleeping.

Detectives met early Wednesday morning to determine the next step in the investigation. The couple's older sons are being watched by neighbors.

Kansas City Police Department spokesman Capt. Steve Young said the parents are assisting detectives.

"Nobody knows more about what's going on in that house than the parents do," Young said.

More than 300 residents who live in the area have consented to have their homes voluntarily searched, he said.

Several residents told KCTV5 that they had nothing to hide and were happy to assist police in their efforts to find Lisa. Parents also said they are taking more precautions to ensure their family's security and talking to their children about stranger danger.

Wednesday's developments came after an extensive search Tuesday. KCTV5's Amy Anderson reported about 10 p.m. Tuesday that more officers arrived at Lisa's Northland home. Anderson said the crime scene area was apparently expanded and "officers are once again zeroing in on the house and backyard."

Authorities say the suspect entered through a bedroom window and snatched the baby from her bed as she was sleeping.

She was last seen on Monday around 10:30 p.m. when her mother put her to bed in a crib, police said. Her father is an electrician and he arrived home from an overnight shift about 4 a.m. He discovered Lisa missing and frantically called police, friends and family tell KCTV5.

Irwin became emotional at times as he waited outside his home Tuesday for answers about his daughter's disappearance. Friends and family came by to offer their support.

Police said they issued the Amber Alert about 7:15 a.m. Tuesday in part because Lisa lived with both her parents, who were at home and are accounted for. The Amber Alert was canceled at 7 p.m. since the public awareness has been raised, but police said they would continue to search for Lisa.

"The family is being cooperative with detectives," Young said. "If there were any holes in their story, we would know by now. There are no holes in their stories. . . . There is a 10-month-old who isn't where she belongs and we are trying to find her. We will keep going bigger as long as we need to."

More than 100 law enforcement officials are looking for the girl. This includes local, state and federal officers including agents from the FBI. Officers on horseback are involved in the search along with police dogs. Firefighters with rappelling equipment are also assisting.

"What makes this case unusual is we still haven't really developed any hard information to go off of," Young said.

According to police, it appears the suspect entered and exited through a bedroom window. Young said a first-floor window appeared to have been tampered with. Police waited more than three hours to issue the Amber Alert because they wanted to interview family members and ensure their stories checked out.

Lisa has blue eyes and blonde hair. She is 30 inches tall and weighs between 26 and 30 pounds.

Lisa was last seen wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it.

Lisa is described as having two bottom teeth, a small bug bite under her left ear, a beauty mark on her right outer thigh and currently has a cold with a cough.

Neighbors tell KCTV5 they are upset about what has happened in their peaceful neighborhood and plan to keep windows closed and locked from now on. One neighbor described seeing a strange man walking through the neighborhood on Monday.

One neighbor told police that a stranger was seen walking a baby wearing only a diaper about 1 a.m. in the street by the baby's home. Young said this tip didn't pan out.

The public is asked to avoid searching the area because "maintaining the integrity of the scene is paramount," Young said.

Even though the Amber Alert was canceled Tuesday night, Young emphasized this doesn't mean that detectives aren't working just as diligently to find the girl.

"They are going to work this thing until the end," Young said. "The main point here is to find this child and get her back home safely."

Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.

Police: Baby Lisa's parents no longer cooperating

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -
The Kansas City Police Department had a bombshell announcement Thursday night.

The parents of a missing 10-month-old baby are now refusing to cooperate with investigators.

"We are continuing to track down leads as we get them," Kansas City Police Department spokesman Capt. Steve Young. "But earlier, the mother and father decided to quit cooperating with police, but our door is always open."

Police said they were closing the command post as a result.

The announcement came 63 hours after Lisa Irwin was reported missing at 4 a.m. Tuesday by her father. Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley said they discovered their daughter had been snatched from her crib when Irwin returned home from an overnight job.

For three days, police had repeatedly said the parents were cooperating with investigators and were detectives best bet to find out what happened to the baby. They said the cooperation had been helpful.

But that changed dramatically Thursday night.

"They have always been free. They have been cooperative up to this point but earlier this evening they decided to stop cooperating with detectives," Young said. "It doesn't help the investigation."

He refused to say whether the parents had taken polygraph tests. He said police have no suspects.

The announcement came on the same day that the parents made tearful national pleas for the safe return of their daughter. Bradley sobbed as she begged for her daughter to be brought home.

"She is everything. She is my little girl," Bradley said. "She means everything to our boys... We can't live without her."

The parents had told reporters that three phones, including cell phones, were taken from their home by the kidnapper. They said this meant a delay in notifying authorities about the kidnapping.

But Young said those claims had turned up nothing.

"We have looked into it. Obviously, it hasn't produced really anything we can go forward with," Young said. "It has produced really nothing."

Hundreds of police officers and others have saturated the area, Young said. Regarding the closure of the command post, "That's probably inevitable at some point," he said.

Less than 40 minutes later, police announced Thursday night that command post was folding.

(CNN) -- The parents of a missing 10-month-old
Missouri girl are no longer cooperating with detectives investigating
her disappearance, authorities said Thursday evening.

Previously, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin were cooperating and helpful, said Kansas City, Missouri, police Capt. Steve Young.

"I don't have to illustrate how that affects the investigation," Young said of the development. "It speaks for itself."

Young, who said "our door is always open" to the parents, told reporters that there are no suspects in the case.

Earlier Thursday, the parents told reporters about how they discovered Lisa Irwin to be missing.

"She's everything," Bradley said of Lisa. "She's our little girl.
She's completed our family, and she means everything to my boys. We need
her home. I can't be without her."

Irwin urged anyone with information to call police. "Anything, even
the smallest information, could help lead to her return," he said.

Lisa Irwin was last seen around 10:30 p.m. Monday, asleep in her
crib, police said. They were called to the home at about 4 a.m. Tuesday.

"It appears the suspect entered/exited through a bedroom window,"
authorities said in a statement. "Evidence at the scene leads police to
believe the child has been abducted."

Jeremy Irwin told reporters that he found Lisa missing when he got
home from work. "The front door was unlocked," he said Thursday. "Most
of the lights were on in the house, and the window in front was open --
all very unusual."

The couple claimed three cell phones were missing at their home, Young said, but the information has not turned up anything.

Police have said the parents are not considered suspects in Lisa's
disappearance. Young on Wednesday told reporters the family had been
cooperative, but "everything is still on the table. We haven't ruled
anything out."

He said then that investigators "really haven't developed any good,
hard information that we can go forward with." Nearly 50 tips have been
received through a hotline, he said, but not all of them have been
pursued, as some of them have been vague -- a person calling to report a
child seat seen in a car, for instance.

"I know everybody's hearts are in the right place, but that's not anything we can do anything with," Young said.

Police have conducted more than 300 "knock-and-talks" and searches of
residences in the area, and more than 300 officers were searching for
Lisa. There have been three searches of a wooded area near the family's
home, he said.

"I promise you, if there's anything we think we can be doing, we've probably done it two or three times already," Young said.

An Amber Alert was issued for Lisa early Tuesday but has been
canceled. "Although the investigation and search for Lisa Irwin
continue, an active Amber Alert is no longer necessary in this case,"
police said.

However, Lisa is still considered missing and endangered, according to authorities.

Lisa is described as 30 inches tall with blue eyes and blond hair,
police said. She weighs between 26 and 30 pounds. She was last seen
wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it. She
has two bottom teeth, a small bug bite under her left ear and a "beauty
mark" on her right outer thigh. She currently has a cold with a cough,
police said.

Police: Parents No Longer Cooperating in Baby Lisa Search

Jason Vaughn

9:19 p.m. CDT, October 6, 2011

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—
The search for 10-month-old Lisa Irwin took a new twist on Thursday evening as Kansas City, Missouri, Police say that the parents of the infant have decided to no longer cooperate with the investigation.

At a press conference on Thursday evening, KCPD spokesperson Capt. Steve Young says that parents Jeremy Irwin and Debbie Bradley are no longer cooperating with the investigation into their daughter's alleged kidnapping. Capt. Yound did not elaborate, and it remains unclear as to the reason why, or what this means for the direction of the police investigation.

On Thursday night, FOX 4 attempted to contact the family at their Northland home, where an unidentified woman claimed that the family had "a deal" with a national news network and refused to talk to the media.

An unidentified man who later answered the door at the house only said "Thank you" when asked what the family had to say to the people helping to search for their missing child.

The family of Lisa Irwin's parents in Independence told FOX 4 News that the family has done all they can to help police in the search for their child, and that they don't blame them for not wanting to talk any more to police.

The news comes after police were able to find no new clues into her disappearance, despite word that the girl's parents told police that three cell phones were missing from the home.

On Thursday, between 50 and 100 officers walked shoulder-to-shoulder through a wooded area near the Northland home where the girl was allegedly abducted on Monday night. The search led to some frantic moments from the girl's parents who rushed to the Kansas City Police Department command post thinking there was a break in the case.

The parents were seen having an animated discussion with the detectives working on the case.

Police say that the search of the woods yielded no new clues in the effort to determine what happened to the child. Authorities also say that the parents claimed that three cell phones were also taken from the home.

"I can confirm that the family told us that there are three cellphones missing from the home. They told us that that morning. What the detectives have done with that I don't know," said Capt. Young earlier on Thursday. "Clearly it hasn't led to a big break in the case or I'd probably be able to talk about it. I can't get into details of what we're doing but it's safe to say we're leaving no stone unturned."

Police say that the child was allegedly taken from her crib in her Northland home at in the 3600 block of North Lister sometime between the hours of 10:30 p.m. Monday night and 4 a.m. Tuesday morning. The baby's father called police around 4 a.m. Tuesday when he came home from work and discovered her missing.

During a press conference on Tuesday, the parents say that searched their home for any sign of their daughter, but only found that the front door was unlocked and a window was open.

Also on Thursday, detectives reportedly developed a list of names, and authorities say that one of the names on the list jogged the parent's memory as someone who should be investigated. When asked by reporters, Capt. Young says that the list of names has yet to lead to any solid leads.

"As time goes by I would imagine they are jogging their brain for every bit that it's worth to think of any person they may not have told us about. It makes sense," said Capt. Young. "We will check out any lead we get. unfortunately, nothing has panned out yet."

Police also searched storm drains and lifted manhole covers to search the sewer system, saying that it's just another lead and that all leads are being investigated.

Lisa Irwin is described as white, with blond hair and blue eyes, about 30 inches tall and weighing 26-30 pounds. Her family says that she has two bottom teeth, a small bug bite under her left ear, a beauty mark on her right outer thigh and currently has a cold with a cough.

The family says that she was last seen wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it.

If you have any information on the girl's whereabouts call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.

Re: LISA IRWIN - 10 months (2011) - Kansas City MO

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The mother of a 10-month-old girl who went
missing from their Kansas City home said police told her she failed a
lie detector test and accused her of being involved in her baby’s
disappearance.

Deborah Bradley said Friday that police never showed her the
results of the test and denied knowing anything about what happened to
her daughter, Lisa Irwin. Bradley and the baby’s father, Jeremy Irwin,
say Lisa was abducted from her crib late Monday or early Tuesday.
“They said I failed (a polygraph test),” Bradley, 25, told the
Associated Press. “And I continued to say that’s not possible because I
don’t know where she’s at and I did not do this.”
Irwin, 28, said he also offered to take a test but that police said that was not necessary.
Kansas City police spokesman Steve Young declined to comment Thursday on
whether the parents have been tested, citing the ongoing investigation.
Bradley and Irwin, both dressed in jeans and sweatshirts, held hands and teared
up several times during the 20-minute interview. They reiterated that
their main focus “is to bring Lisa home.”
“We need her. We have to have her. She’s our link that ties everybody together,” Irwin said.
They said police have treated them like suspects and that Bradley in
particular has been preparing for the possibility of charges being filed against her.
The mother said detectives told her: “’You did it. You did it. And we have nothing.’”
Irwin, an electrician, says he returned from work around 4 a.m. Tuesday and
discovered Lisa was missing. Bradley says she last checked on the child
around 10:30 p.m. and that when Lisa disappeared she was asleep in her
bed with her 6-year-old son and a stray kitten they found earlier in the
day. The parents say they discovered their front door unlocked, a
window open and house lights blazing, lending credence to the theory
that the baby may have been snatched by an intruder.
“The main problem I think that we’re facing is that everybody (else) has an
alibi,” Irwin said. “I was at work. I’ve been cleared. All these other
people we were worried about ... the FBI said they’ve been cleared. The
only one you can’t clear is the mother that’s at home when it happens ‘cause there’s nobody else there.”
On Thursday, police told reporters that Bradley and Irwin were no longer cooperating with
authorities in their investigations, but the family later released a
statement insisting they had never stopped.
The parents reasserted their commitment to the investigation Friday, saying they are not angry
with how things have gone and that they understand police have a difficult job to do.
“Don’t get me wrong. I understand why they
did what they did,” Bradley said. “You see stuff like this everywhere.
You watch the TV, and there’s some crazy person doing something insane.
There’s been too many times stuff has happened. They have to assume
what’s worst ... but it felt like it was taken really, really far.”
Bradley said, “I’m still not angry.”
The parents also said their three cellphones had been stolen, but Young said
the missing phones had not produced any leads.
Investigators focused their search Thursday on a heavily wooded area, sewers and an
industrial park. About 100 officers scoured the industrial area and
adjacent woods, while others were lifting drain covers and crawling inside.
But by Thursday evening authorities announced they were
shutting down the command post about a mile from the family home. Police
spokesman Darin Snapp sent out a news release saying authorities
believed they had done everything they could “regarding geographic searches.”

This was such an unusual case from the beginning.
I was immediately drawn to the conclusion of parental involvement but did not say anything publicly.
Stranger abductions of this type are so few and far between that it was not credible, in my mind, that someone not connected to the child would be involved.
Now, where is she?

I'm intrigued by the missing cell phones. Mine goes in the opened drawer of my night table (just in case) overnight, and I know my sons keep theirs by their beds also. One would assume the father had his with him. No one has mentioned pinging for gps but reckon that was done. Surely the phone company would have records of last use time, etc. as they keep records to the very second. If I were abducting a child I certainly wouldn't be looking around for phones.
