Poll: How long should an Amber Alert remain in place when a child is missing?

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Police admit they have few solid leads as to what happened to 10-month-old Lisa Irwin who was found missing early Tuesday. Police then issued an Amber Alert. The parents said the girl was snatched from her crib as she was sleeping.

She was last seen on Monday around 10:30 p.m. when her mother put her to bed in a crib, police said. Her father is an electrician and he arrived home from an overnight shift about 4 a.m. He discovered Lisa missing and frantically called police, friends and family tell KCTV5.

Police said they issued the Amber Alert about 7:15 a.m. Tuesday in part because Lisa lived with both her parents, who were at home and are accounted for. The Amber Alert was canceled at 7 p.m. since the public awareness has been raised, but police said they would continue to search for Lisa.
