New details in missing Missouri baby
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WHDH) -- It has been seven months since 10-month-old Lisa Irwin vanished from her crib in the middle of the night. Kansas City police said they don’t have much to work with.
Lisa’s parents, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, hope exclusive information provided to NBC News leads to a break in the case. Jeremy says one month after Lisa disappeared his debit card was suspended because of fraudulent charges.
Documents provided by Jeremy show one transaction for $69.04, which he claims leads to a website specializing in changing “your or your child’s names.”
Kansas City police said they are investigating the debit card issue, but that it does not look promising or appear to be anything more than stolen card numbers.
“It appears this credit card was used fraudulently over a month after the disappearance of baby Lisa. That's a long time for somebody to steal a credit card and wait to try to use it. And that's one of the reasons why law enforcement will probably be casting doubts on a relationship between the two,” said Clint Van Zandt.
Lisa’s parents last spoke out to Dr. Phil in February. Jeremey says he got home at 3:45 a.m. the morning of Oct. 4. The door was unlocked, lights were on and Lisa’s crib was empty, according to Lisa’s father.
Lisa’s mother admitted to having several drinks the night Lisa was reported missing. She also said she doesn’t remember when she last checked on her.
Police searched the home and scoured the woods just three miles away -- close to where a witness says he saw a man carrying a baby around the time Lisa went missing. Authorities said no information has surfaced about the man and the search has come up empty.
Lisa’s parents are hoping the latest development brings their daughter home.
