Kansas City police to use bomb detection equipment in search at home of missing baby
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) ' Kansas City police are sending a bomb and arson truck to a residence where they're searching for clues in the disappearance of a baby girl. Spokesman Capt. Steve Young stresses there is no explosive device at the home.
Investigators executed a search warrant Wednesday on the home of Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley who reported their daughter, Lisa Irwin, missing Oct. 4. She was 10 months old when she disappeared.
Officials aren't saying why they needed a search warrant. They have already conducted several searches at the home with the family's permission.
Young says the bomb and arson truck carried devices that will aid in the search, but he didn't go into detail. Many bomb units carry X-ray equipment that can scan solid objects and reveal items hidden within.
