Police have confirmed they are actively looking for missing 11-month-old baby Lisa Irwin after recent reports claimed they called off the search.

On Thursday night, KMBC's Baby Lisa Live Update website reported the search was off. It also reported police said Lisa's parents, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, were not cooperating with the investigation.

Sgt. Stacey Greaves, a representative for the Kansas City police, said detectives have received 1,205 tips. Police have cleared 959 of them.

Authorities have not rescheduled interviews with Lisa's brothers, ages 5 and 8. The family's lawyer said the interviews would be rescheduled shortly after cancelling them last week.

The cops interviewed the brothers immediately after Lisa went missing but still want to take DNA samples from them.

Baby Lisa went missing one month ago from her Kansas City home. The case has received national attention due to strange reports stemming from the investigation.

Her mother, Deborah Bradley, admitted falling asleep drunk the night Lisa vanished. Lisa's father, Jeremy Irwin, worked an unusual night shift and did not return home until 4 a.m. He noticed his daughter was not in her crib and called the authorities.

Irwin and Bradley have not talked to the local media since the week after reporting the disappearance of their daughter.

Authorities have investigated and conducted interviews all month. They have interviewed Bradley's brother and the spouse of neighbor Samantha Brando, who was drinking with Bradley the night Lisa disappeared.

They have also questioned John Tanko, the neighborhood repairperson. Tanko is the ex-boyfriend of Megan Wright, who received a phone call on the night Lisa went missing from one of the Irwin family's stolen cell phones. Some speculate the phones were taken along with Lisa.

Police have searched her entire home, surrounding areas and even a lake in an attempt to find the baby.
