Lisa's mother: 'We are grieving'

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

It has now been almost three weeks since baby Lisa was last seen, and on Monday KCTV5 asked the child's mother why she won't talk to local media.

When Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley arrived back to the house on North Walrond, KCTV5's Bonyen Lee asked the parents of baby Lisa Irwin on Monday if it was true that they were getting paid to avoid local reporters.

"No, not at all," said Deborah Bradley, the mother of the missing baby.

When asked why they would not talk to local reporters, Deborah replied, "Because we are grieving."

Baby Lisa's parents openly shared that grief with supporters during a vigil last night for the missing 11-month-old.

Supporters and family alike all wore T-shirts with baby Lisa's picture that read "kidnapped" across the front.

The baby's parents' local attorney, Cyndy Short, said Sunday the massive search by police and the FBI was all for show.

Short said after 17 hours, she would have expected investigators to walk away with a lot more than they did, if in fact a crime had been committed there.

Police said they do not want to comment on Short's accusations, saying right now they are keeping the focus on baby Lisa and following up on tips and leads.

Police do say they have not had full cooperation of the parents since Oct. 6, nearly three weeks ago.
