KANSAS CITY — Kansas City television stations have been subpoenaed to submit footage of interviews with friends and family of a missing 10-month-old girl.

The subpoenas from the Clay County grand jury were sent Monday afternoon to at least four local network affiliates.

The stations reported on their websites that the subpoenas state that the Clay County prosecutor is seeking raw video of interviews with family, friends of family and neighbors of Lisa Irwin. Her parents reported her missing a week ago.

The subpoenas also ask that media present the documents later this month, but it was unclear if the TV stations would comply.

Police have said they have no suspects in the case, but neighbors said they have been questioned about a homeless man seen in the neighborhood about two weeks ago.
