    A ten month old girl was abducted from her crib during the night in Kansas, MO.
    Ten-month-old Lisa Irwin was last seen by her mother, at at 10:30 p.m. The child was discovered missing by her father at 4 a.m. when he returned home from work. An amber alert has been issued.Lisa has blue eyes and blond hair, is 30 inches tall and weighs 26 to 30 pounds. She was last seen wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it, police said. The child has two bottom teeth and a beauty mark on her right outer thigh. Her parents said she also has a cold with a cough. Anyone with information should call 816-
    474-8477.
    I can't link the story but if you google missing ten month old, Lisa's picture will be in the story.

    Prayers she is found safe.

    I can't imagine anything more horrible. You put your baby to bed for the night in her own bed, in her own home only to have someone kidnap her in the middle of the night. Those poor people.

    How awfully sad and shocking!:(

    I hope they find the baby soon. I can't imagine what the parents must be going through. Why do people do such terrible things to other people?

    Why would the Amber alert be canceled? I can think of scenarios where that would happen but they don't seem to apply here.

    There are specific guidelines for Amber alerts.

    http://www.amberalert.gov/guidelines.htm

    Perhaps they feel based on new information that it is not a serious threat to the child (i.e., evidence a family member took her?), or that it is not an "abduction" (again, perhaps a family member) or some other new info that made them cancel it?

    Yeah, those are some of the scenarios I think would lead to canceling it but the article didn't hint at any of that. Of course the police might be closemouthed about the reason - they probably should be.

    Here's hoping she's found safe and sound.

    As a parent, I cannot imagine having my child kidnapped.

    But I don't think that this is the likely outcome :(

    I am hoping that she is found safe and sound too.

    Maybe the police are pressing them hard. There was a similar case in Florida 5 or 6 years ago (maybe more) and the police concentrated so hard on the parents that they stopped cooperating, too.

    I think the parents lost faith in the police after they closed down the command center and canceled the Amber Alert. Maybe the FBI needs to come in (even though there's no proof the baby was taken out of state). The thought that someone they know or trusted could have taken their daughter has to make the parents suspicious of everyone.

    It seems to me if the cell phones were taken (and that is my understanding), the police would have a GPS reading on them. Maybe they know something more than they are saying or the parents are involved.

    I misplaced my purse a couple of Sundays ago and my husband was pretty accurate in finding where it was, even to the direction (north) that my purse was facing. If my phone could be found like that, I would think that their phones could be too

    Does that work if they're turned off?

    Have no idea - the article mentioned they thought it was to prevent them calling the police. Maybe they don't have a land line.

    Well the amber alerts only work for so long. They were really meant for when people see a child taken in a car or by someone that is known. After so many days they cancel them.
    Something is not right with this story. I've worked on a lot of these. The police know something and the parents aren't being truthful.

    How could you not hear someone breaking into your house? And taking the cell phones? What are the chances a 10 month old stays asleep being taken out of a crib and being passed thru a window into the night air? IDK...

    The cell phone thing bugs me. How did this person know they only had cell phones and no land line? And how did they know where to find both phones to steal them? And if the father was at work, why didn't he have his phone with him? Why was it home to be stolen?

    It happens. Most child abduction or disappearances do involve family members so I understand why that's the first place people's minds go but stranger abductions do happen.

    I think people like to believe it couldn't happen to their family and of course they'd hear someone in their home but that's just not always true.

    It was only speculation on my part that they don't have a land line. The article indicated they thought the 3 cell phones were taken to delay a call to police and that doesn't make sense if they do have a land line but please don't take that as fact - I don't know any better than any one else if they do or don't.

    The parents were on GMA this morning. Apparently, this was the ONLY time the mother left the front door unlocked and the ONLY time the father worked over night. And the police apparently do think the parents are involved. After watching the interview, I have to agree that something just isn't right here. I don't think they hurt the baby, (hopefully) but I do think they're involved and wanting publicity and money. I just hope that's all they're doing.

    I have been praying that they find the baby alive. I don't want to compare this case to the many others over the years that did not turn out well for the missing child but ......still praying for a happy ending.

    Ooh, that's new. Everything I've read said the police don't think that.

    I hope they find the baby, healthy and sound. How very sad.

    I don't know what to think. Something is not right. I fear that the parents are involved and if so, I doubt that baby is ever found alive.

    The words are eerily similar to other cases where the parent has been found responsible. Caylee anyone?
