By CHRISTINA NG and ELICIA DOVER (@EliciaDover)

Oct. 6, 2011

Desperate for a lead as baffled investigators struggle, the distraught Missouri parents of missing 10-month-old Lisa Irwin have been wracking their brains to make lists of possible suspects for police.

Parents Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin have been thinking about all of the people they cross paths with on a daily basis -- every grocer, utility worker who may have been in the house, former friend, classmate, neighbor or acquaintances who may have wanted a child.

They are trying to remember if anyone every took particular interest in their little girl who was last seen by Bradley on Monday night when she put Lisa to bed at the family's Kansas City home. So far, police have no hard leads and no suspects.

Missing Baby Lisa: Parents Stop Cooperating After Making Lists of Possible Suspects

By CHRISTINA NG and ELICIA DOVER (@EliciaDover)

Oct. 6, 2011

The parents of 10-month-old Lisa Irwin, missing since Monday, have stopped cooperating with authorities, according to police.

"The mother and father no longer want to talk to detectives," Kansas City, Mo., police Capt. Steve Young said. "From an investigative standpoint, we enjoyed their cooperation so far. [it] has been very beneficial to the case. But yeah, you can imagine it doesn't help the case" that the cooperation has ended.

FBI: Search for Mo. Baby Leads to Kan. Landfill

By MARIA SUDEKUM FISHER Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. October 7, 2011 (AP)

FBI agents searched a Kansas landfill on Friday in connection with the disappearance of a 10-month-old Missouri girl, just hours after the child's mother said police accused her of being involved.

Agents and Kansas City police spent about two hours at the Deffenbaugh Industries landfill in the suburb of Shawnee, FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton said. She wouldn't discuss details but confirmed the activity was related to the search for Lisa Irwin, whose parents said was snatched from her crib in the middle of the night.

Patton said it was the second time the FBI had been at the landfill, which investigators also searched Tuesday — the same day the baby was reported missing — and it wasn't uncommon to search an area several times.

Missing Baby Lisa: Teen Questioned as Police Look Into California Tip

By CHRISTINA NG  Oct. 8, 2011

Authorities are looking into two new leads today in the case of a missing 10-month-old Missouri baby.

Lisa Irwin has been missing from her Kansas City home since Monday night.

On Friday, a teenage neighbor of Lisa's parents was questioned by investigators and forensic experts took a DNA sample, a source told ABC News. That neighbor was apparently at the home the day Lisa vanished and also knew the access code to the family's garage.

However, police said they still have no suspects.

Investigators are also looking into reports from the west coast, where a couple was seen with a small child fitting Lisa's description, relative Mike Lerette told ABC affiliate KMBC-TV.

"They're pursuing surveillance tape on a couple with the baby in California," said Lerette.

FBI using metal detectors at missing baby's home

Friday, Oct. 07, 2011  The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- FBI agents have been using metal detectors outside the home of a 10-month-old Missouri girl who disappeared earlier this week.

Kansas City police Capt. Steve Young says federal agents have been running metal detector wands around the family's yard Friday. He said the search wasn't prompted by a tip, but was being done as part of a thorough sweep of the house where the baby, Lisa Irwin, was last reported seen late Monday.

Authorities scour neighborhood for missing Missouri baby

By the CNN Wire Staff

updated 4:20 PM EST, Sat October 8, 2011

Kansas City, Missouri (CNN) -- A frantic search for a missing 10-month-old Missouri girl left investigators scouring a Kansas City neighborhood Saturday, a day after searching a nearby creek and landfill.

Federal authorities joined police in the search effort this week, speaking with neighbors and sweeping the area with metal detectors in an expanded search for Lisa Irwin.

Michael Lerette, a family spokesman for the parents of the missing infant, said police collected what could be forensic evidence in the case, but authorities have declined to comment on that claim.

The search, meanwhile, remains clouded by what Kansas City police Capt. Steve Young said was the missing girl's parents' decision to stop cooperating with detectives.

Statistics suggest baby unlikely taken by stranger

By BILL DRAPER Associated Press

Posted: 10/07/2011 11:08:49 PM PDT

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—Decades of statistics on infant abductions in the U.S. suggest one of the least likely scenarios in this week's disappearance of a Kansas City baby is that a stranger broke into her home and took the child as her family slept.

But the numbers also lead national experts to believe that if 10-month-old Lisa Irwin were snatched from her crib in the middle of the night, as her parents told investigators, she is likely still alive.

Strangers who kidnap infants or young children, though rare, often do so because they want a child of their own, not because they intend to hurt or kill the child, said David Finkelhor, director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire.

"The recovery rate for infants is very, very high... "

Family of missing Missouri baby setting up reward

Updated 2h 1m ago  By Mike Ransdell, AP

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Decades of statistics on infant abductions in the U.S. suggest one of the least likely scenarios in this week's disappearance of a Kansas City baby is that a stranger broke into her home and quietly snatched her from her crib.

But the numbers also lead national experts to believe that if 10-month-old Lisa Irwin were taken by an intruder in the middle of the night, as her parents told investigators, she is likely still alive.

Strangers who kidnap infants or young children, though rare, often do so because they want a child of their own, not because they intend to hurt or kill the child, said David Finkelhor, director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire.

"The recovery rate for infants is very, very high. There is real hope here," added Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Arlington, Va.

In Wake of Missing Baby Lisa Irwin, Metro Kids Get Id'd for Protection

Terra Hall, FOX 4 News Christie Walton, Interactive Content Producer  2:59 p.m. CDT, October 8, 2011

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—

A missing child is a parent's worst nightmare.  That's why Kansas City mom Amber Adams had a Child ID made for her two-year-old son Keith Ryan.

"It's not something I want to happen to my child, but it's something that needs to be done in order to protect him," said Adams.

Through MOCHIP, or Missouri Children's Identification and Protection Program, kids have their fingerprints, dental impressions, DNA, physical description and photograph stored on a DVD.  Parents then keep that information in a safe place in the case of an emergency.   

"It's the most important thing for you to do for your children and yourself and your own peace of mind," said Adams.

Call for help in missing baby case moves to Kansas Speedway

By LYNN HORSLEY  The Kansas City Star Posted on Sun, Oct. 09, 2011 06:20 PM

Ashley Irwin, sister of Lisa’s father Jeremy, said she and a group of friends distributed thousands of flyers with pictures of the missing girl and sold T-shirts to raise money for a reward.

Irwin said they chose the Speedway because it attracts 100,000 fans and “people from all over the country.†She said they felt it was a worthwhile effort on a day when police reported no new progress in the search for the little girl.

Police spokesman Steve Young said detectives were again at the family home for several hours today, “just trying anything they can to figure out what happened.â€

High-profile New York defense attorney Joe Tacopina is the lastest addition to the team of people representing the Missouri parents of missing 11-month-old Lisa Irwin.

'I believe this baby is alive and in the hands of someone else, private investigator tells TODAY

By Scott Stump

TODAY.com contributor

Grief over missing baby Lisa Irwin has caused inconsistencies in her mother’s story, according to a private investigator and prominent defense attorney who have been hired by the family.

They also maintain Deborah Bradley had nothing to do with the baby's disappearance.

“I do believe this baby is alive and in the hands of someone else,’’ private investigator Bill Stanton told TODAY’s Ann Curry Tuesday. “The fact that they haven’t found this child just reinforces my belief that the baby is alive..."

KC police want more from parents of missing baby

MARIA SUDEKUM FISHER, Associated Press

Updated 04:11 p.m., Tuesday, October 18, 2011

KANSAS CITY, Mo (AP) Kansas City police said Tuesday that the parents of a missing baby have not sat down face-to-face with investigators since October 8, four days after the couple said someone must have entered their home and taken their baby as the mom and two other children slept.

It's been 10 days since the couple have answered police questions on "things that we believe only they would know about," Kansas City police spokesman Steve Young said.

The child's mother, Deborah Bradley, has given television interviews since then, including at least two in which she said she had been drinking the night Lisa disappeared and may have blacked out.

"Our focus has always been and remains to find this girl," Young said.

FoxNews.com

An FBI cadaver dog searching the home of a missing Missouri baby has detected the scent of a human body, according to a police affidavit, which noted that investigators discovered soil in the backyard that had been "recently disturbed or overturned."

The document, obtained by Fox News' "Justice with Judge Jeanine," says the cadaver dog indicated a reaction to the scent of a dead person inside the parents' bedroom.

Police filed the affidavit to support a search warrant request for the home of Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, who reported 10-month-old Lisa Lisa missing on Oct. 4.
