National Guard to help search for missing Kansas City baby

KANSAS CITY — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is sending members of the National Guard to Kansas City to help search for a missing baby.

Nixon said Saturday that 25 members of a guard police company will go to Kansas City to help search for Lisa Irwin, who was 10 months old when she was reported missing Oct. 4.

Late Saturday, police searched an abandoned home after receiving a call saying there were diapers and a backpack in the structure. But investigators say the items appear to have been in the house far longer than two weeks and likely wouldn't offer any evidence.

Police also said a homeless man seen in the neighborhood has been arrested on an outstanding warrant but isn't a suspect. Police want to question him as they had questioned neighbors.
