KANSAS CITY — A private security consultant said a wealthy family hired him to investigate the disappearance of a Missouri baby.

Bill Stanton on Wednesday wouldn't disclose who hired him to look into the case of Lisa Irwin, whose family reported her missing from its Kansas City home Oct. 4.

Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin suspect their daughter was abducted from the family home. Irwin discovered the child missing when he returned from work.

New York City-based Stanton wouldn't say how long he plans to be in Kansas City. He said he's here to help the investigation and that he's "hopeful this child is safe and alive."

A spokesman for the baby's family said Stanton also will be working with media covering the investigation.
