Police extend search for Mo. baby


KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 4 (UPI) — Police say they have expanded their search for a missing 10-month-old Kansas City girl who disappeared after she was put to bed in her crib.

An Amber Alert was issued for Lisa Irwin at 7 a.m. Tuesday after her father came home from work to find her missing. She was last seen about 10:30 p.m. Monday when her mother put her to bed, The Kansas City (Mo.) Star reported Tuesday.

More than 100 law enforcement officers were searching the area, along with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and police dogs. Firefighters rappelled down a nearby embankment to check for evidence of the baby.

Police had not identified a suspect, but said they believe someone entered and exited the family’s home through a window, KCTV, Kansas City, Mo., reported.

Police say the parents, who also have two sons under the age of 10, are cooperating with investigators.

“If there were any holes in their story, we would know by now,” said Capt. Steve Young.
