Saturday, November 5, 2011
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City police say there’s been a slowdown in the number of tips received in the monthlong search for a baby reported missing from her home.
Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin reported their 10-month-old daughter, Lisa Irwin, missing Oct. 4. The baby’s parents have said they believe the child was abducted from her crib overnight while other members of the family slept.
Police spokeswoman Stacey Graves said Friday that police have received more than 1,100 tips and have cleared nearly 1,000. But she said the number of calls to police has recently tapered off.
She said the nature of the investigation hasn’t changed, and that police continue to search for the baby.
Graves said up to 50 detectives continue to work on the case and that there are no suspects.
