KANSAS CITY, Mo.?
Police and FBI returned to the Irwin home for the third day in search of missing 10-month-old Lisa Irwin. For the first time, the media learned from the parents that three cell phones were also missing from the home, however, police would not comment on this information.
Police plan to search in areas they've already search, but what kind of evidence they're looking for is still unclear. On Thursday, her parents Jeremy Irwin and Debbie Bradley also said the window that appeared tampered with, first believed to be Lisa's bedroom window, is actually a window in the family's computer room
The FBI revisited the home on Wednesday and concentrated their efforts around the window, but investigators are not releasing any information as to what, if any, evidence was found.
Baby Lisa, missing since early Tuesday morning, captured the nation's attention as her parents addressed the national media on Thursday morning. Jeremy Irwin and Debbie Bradley appeared exhausted. Through tears Debbie spoke about her missing daughter and pleaded for her safe return
Kansas City Police said they continue to follow leads, including a tip that a baby matching Lisa's description was spotted at a truck stop in St. Joseph, Missouri with an older couple. Police said that is just one of many tips they're looking into and will know more once they view surveillance video from the truck stop.
On Wednesday, the parents of Lisa Irwin addressed Kansas City media in a live press conference.
In a tearful plea Lisa's mother pleaded for the safe return of her daughter and said Lisa has two brothers at home waiting for her.
Lisa's father urged who ever has Lisa to drop her off at a fire station or a hospital and said that no questions would be asked.
Police said Lisa was allegedly taken from her crib in her Northland home at in the 3600 block of North Lister sometime between the hours of 10:30 p.m. Monday night and 4 a.m. Tuesday morning. The baby's father called police around 4 a.m. Tuesday when he came home from work and discovered her missing.
Police said Lisa's parents are cooperating with the investigation. On Tuesday, authorities searched a van and car at the home. There is no word on what police found or were looking for. Officers searching for the child focused on areas near the family's home such as railroad tracks near the north side of the Missouri River and a wooded area behind the home.
"We have some canines out in the woods," said Kansas City Police Capt. Steve Young on Tuesday. "We don't need daylight for the dogs to work. When they finish we will stop the area search, but maintain a command post to work leads as they come in."
Police say that at this point, they have no new leads or suspects in the child's disappearance.
According to retired FBI Special Agent Michael Tabman, infant kidnappings are very rare.
"Kidnappings are fairly rare anyway, and this was an infant. Infant kidnappings are more rare," he said. "When they do happen it's almost always someone they know, or there is generally a successful conclusion and the baby is found and returned unharmed."
Several local, state and federal agencies including the FBI helped during Tuesday's search for Irwin, who is described as white, with blond hair and blue eyes, about 30 inches tall and weighing 26-30 pounds. Her family says that she has two bottom teeth, a small bug bite under her left ear, a beauty mark on her right outer thigh and currently has a cold with a cough.
The family says that she was last seen wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it.
