Baby Lisa's mom admits she was drunk when her baby vanished

Posted: Updated:
KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -

The mother of a baby who went missing from her Kansas City home two weeks ago says she was drunk when the girl disappeared.

Deborah Bradley told a national morning show Monday that the night her baby, Lisa Irwin, disappeared she had bought wine and consumed "enough to be drunk."

Police could not confirm that information Sunday evening.

KCTV5 spoke to Bill Stanton, the consultant who is working with the couple.

"Your version of drunk maybe different than Deborah's version of drunk," said Bill Stanton.

Stanton said she did have two or three drinks that night, but he thinks she misspoke when she made that statement to a national reporter.

Surveillance video just hours before baby Lisa vanished captured Bradley with her brother shopping at the grocery store.

One of the items she purchased was a box of wine.

KCTV5 asked Stanton if Bradley was drinking that wine the night baby Lisa vanished from her crib. But he said he does not know exactly what she consumed. He said she did admit to him that she had some drinks.

The community continues to hold prayer vigils for the safe return of baby Lisa who has been missing for 13 days.

Bradley said police asked her if she killed Lisa, who was 10 months old when she disappeared Oct. 4. She said she doesn't "think alcohol changes a person enough to do something like that."

She also said she fears being arrested because then the search for Lisa will end and she will "never know what happened."

Hundreds of state and federal law enforcement officers have been involved in the search for Lisa, but have turned up no evidence pointing to her whereabouts.
