Lisa Irwin Missing: Parents of Missing Missouri Girl Hope Reward Will Bring in Clues

The parents of 10-month-old Lisa Irwin are creating a reward trust fund to assist in finding the Kansas City girl who disappeared from her home Oct. 3.

"It seems like they're running out of good leads, so why not give them more?" family spokesman Mike LeRette told the Kansas City Star on Saturday. "We're one phone call away. One person calls in and she's in our arms later today."

The parents, who were characterized last week as being uncooperative with investigators, have reportedly now returned to talking with police.

Deborah Bradley, Lisa's mother, stated that the police had accused her of being involved in her daughter's disappearance and told her that she had failed her lie detector test. According to the Associated Press, the couple said police have treated them like suspects.

"From the start when they've questioned me, once I couldn't fill in gaps, it turned into 'You did it, you did it,' " Bradley said.

Investigators said they still have not found any solid leads despite an extensive search which saw hundreds of officers scouring the family's quiet Kansas City neighborhood, including searching through the woods and landfills.

Lisa was last seen when she was put to bed by Bradley around 10:30 p.m. on Monday Oct. 3. The child's father, Jeremy Irwin, discovered her missing when he returned home from work at about 4 a.m. local time Tuesday.

Initially, Kansas City Police spokesman Captain Steven Young reported that the parents were cooperative with authorities, and made it clear that they were never in custody.

On Oct. 6, the assessment of the parents had changed when police claimed they had become uncooperative.

LeRette also said the family has decided to do fewer interviews to keep the focus on finding their little girl.

Lisa has blue eyes and blond hair. She is 30 inches tall and weighs between 26 and 30 pounds. Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline, 816-474-8477.
