KANSAS CITY — A police affidavit says an FBI cadaver dog indicated a reaction to the scent of human remains inside the Kansas City home of a baby girl who disappeared nearly three weeks ago.

Police filed the affidavit to support a search warrant request for the home of Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, who reported their 10-month-old daughter, Lisa, missing Oct. 4.

According to the affidavit, the dog taken into the house Monday indicated a "hit" on the floor of Bradley's bedroom. A judge approved the search warrant Tuesday, and police and the FBI conducted a daylong search Wednesday.

Court documents filed Friday said police took blankets, toys and clothing from the house, as well as rolls of tape and a tape dispenser.

Messages seeking comment have been left with the family's attorney.
