Police shut down command post in KC baby's case

Wednesday, November 23, 2011 | 10:51 a.m. CST

KANSAS CITY — Investigators have closed the command post they had been using while searching for a missing Kansas City girl.

Detectives and FBI agents are working out of their usual offices but will continue to search for Lisa Irwin, who was 10 months old when she disappeared from her home on Oct. 4.

Police said Tuesday the command post closed because leads in the case have slowed. And other crime cases have piled up while officers concentrated on finding the girl, putting strain on detectives and victims involved in other cases.

The Kansas City Star reports that seven or eight detectives will stay assigned to the baby Lisa case, but will also work on other cases. FBI agents will continue to work with police at the same level as before.
