Kansas City, Mo. – On Thursday the parents of missing 11-month-old Lisa Irwin are slated to hold a press conference, but for now, according to police, they refuse to be interviewed separately regarding the infant’s disappearance.
Attorneys for the couple have announced that Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley are not opposed to separate interviews, but will not give in to a request by police to speak to authorities with no lawyers present.

“Being questioned separately is not the issue,” said attorney Cyndy Short, according to CNN.
Short noted the couple has cooperated with investigators and have been interviewed by authorities both together and separate. She added that as long as “detectives are fair, open-minded and non-accusatory,” Irwin and Bradley will comply with the police request, reports CNN.
Police had publicly announced that they had been refused access to Baby Lisa’s brothers – who were home the night she vanished – since that fateful evening, however, a specialist trained in forensic interviewing of children is slated to speak with the boys on Friday.
Baby Lisa was reported missing on Oct. 4 at about 4 a.m. after her father returned home from work and found she was missing from her crib. Bradley told police the last time she saw the girl was on the night of Oct. 3 at about 10:30 p.m. when she put the infant to bed.

Bradley later admitted during several media interviews that she was drunk that night and also noted that rather than 10:30 p.m., she last saw the infant girl at around 6:40 p.m.

Baby Lisa is described as having blue eyes and blonde hair and being approximately 30 inches tall and weighing between 26 and 30 pounds. She was last seen wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it. The infant is described as having two bottom teeth, a small bug bite under her left ear, a beauty mark on her right outer thigh and currently has a cold with a cough.
A $100,000 reward is being offered by an anonymous donor for the safe return of Baby Lisa or for information that leads to the conviction of whomever abducted the little girl.
