Parents of missing girl dispute police claims they aren't cooperating


The parents of a missing 10-month-old Missouri girl are disputing police assertions that they've stopped cooperating with investigators.

Relatives of Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley called a news conference Thursday night after police announced the couple had ceased talking to detectives in the search for their baby, Lisa Irwin.

The couple have said the baby was abducted from the their home sometime Monday night or early Tuesday - after her mother put her in her crib and before the father got home from work.

In a statement read to reporters by Irwin's sister, the couple said, "We want the public to know we have never stopped cooperating with police."'

A call to police for reaction was not immediately returned but earlier in the day Thursday, Police said the parents of a missing 10-month-old Missouri girl were no longer cooperating with authorities.

Kansas City police spokesman Steve Young said Thursday night that Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin have decided to stop talking to detectives.

He didn't provide details. But he did say the couple's claim that their cell phones were stolen hasn't produced any leads that investigators could pursue.

Young says police still have no suspects in the disappearance of their daughter, Lisa Irwin.
