KANSAS CITY, Mo. - With her fiancée by her side, Deborah Bradley spoke with NBC News about the disappearance of her now-11-month-old daughter and the nearly two-week-long investigation that has followed.
Lisa Irwin was reported missing in the early-morning hours of Oct. 4. Her mother, Deborah Bradley, and her father, Jeremy Irwin, say he returned home from work around 4 a.m. and she was not in her crib.
Bradley has previously admitted to failing a lie detector test, and told NBC’s Peter Alexander she specifically failed the question about whether or not she knew where her daughter was.
In the interview, which aired Monday on "Today," Bradley admitted to being drunk the night Lisa disappeared, but insists she had nothing to do with her daughter’s disappearance and has no idea where she might be.
She says the fact investigators have focused so much on her has been difficult.
"My daughter is missing,” she said. “I shouldn't have to put any energy or time or effort into anything but finding her. Thinking of names, thinking of anything or anyone who has been around that was suspicious anything that was out of place.”
Investigators have not named any suspects in the case, and Bradley and Jeremy Irwin have not been accused of any crimes.
Police had been looking for a homeless many who sometimes worked in the area as a handyman who had not been seen since Lisa's disappearance. The man was located over the weekend, arrested on an unrelated warrant and questioned about the Lisa Irwin case, but police say he does not appear to have anything to do with Lisa's disappearance..
