Missing Baby Lisa Irwin command post disbanded after leads slow down

Still no suspect

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The command post police used to coordinate efforts to find missing baby Lisa Irwin has been shut down.

A Kansas City Police Department spokesperson said in a statement the leads in the case have "slowed down to a point that it no longer justifies a command post.''

Instead, a smaller group of detectives will run down tips and leads while working on other cases.

Lisa Irwin's father discovered his daughter missing October 4 from the family's home in the 3600 block of North Lister Avenue in Kansas City.

Police quickly issued an Amber Alert and Lisa's mother made an emotional plea for her return in the hours following baby's disappearance.

Lawyers hired by Jeremy Irwin, the baby's father and Deborah Bradley, the baby's mother, accused the police of focusing on the parents and not considering other possible suspects.

The case drew national attention, but that spotlight dimmed in recent days. Detectives have checked out more than 1,200 tips and have not developed a suspect.

Anyone with information on Baby Lisa's disappearance should call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
