Police: Hunt for Kansas City baby not out of steam
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police say they still don't know what happened to a Kansas City baby missing since early October and whose first birthday is Friday.
Lisa Irwin's father returned home from work around 4 a.m. Oct. 4 and discovered her missing. The ensuing Amber Alert sparked intensive police searches of the neighborhood, nearby wooded areas, industrial sites and landfills, but that hunt has drawn to a close.
Nevertheless, Kansas City Police Capt. Steve Young says the investigation has not lost steam. Police have received 1,271 tips and cleared 966 of them.
Attorneys for Lisa's parents, Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley, say they might make statements Friday after nearly two weeks of shunning the media. Young says investigators want to interview Irwin and Bradley separately, something they've not done since Oct. 8.
