Lisa Irwin Missing Infant Search Continues
The search continues today for missing 10 month old infant Lisa Irwin. The missing toddler was last seen sleeping in her crib at 10:30pm on Monday night at her home at 3600 N Lister Avenue in Kansas City.
Lisa Irwin was reported missing by her father when he returned home from work at 4am Tuesday morning. Police are extremely concerned because in this case both of the parents are accounted for and both reported Lisa missing. Usually in a missing child case such as this, one of the parents is involved, but in this case both parents have been extensively grilled by police and both are cooperating fully. An Amber Alert was issued initially but has since been cancelled. 30 detectives still remain on the case, continuing the search near the child's home. Police fear that Lisa Irwin was abducted via a window in her bedroom and could very well be several miles away by now. The search party is using search dogs at this point in hopes of picking up a trail of Lisa Irwin and her abductor. Police are responding to leads but said that no hard leads have come in on the case. Surely the police are interviewing family members from inside the family circle to the outer circle as in a case like this, the kidnapper is usually someone who knows the family and the missing child. Certainly a 10 month old toddler cannot just get up and walk outside and disappear, at least she wouldn't have gotten that far away - this is almost definitely a kidnapping case and Lisa Irwin has probably been transported by car miles from away from her home.
