Parents: We Only Want Lisa Home

The eyes of Kansas City and the nation are fixed firmly on the parents of 10-month-old baby Lisa Irwin, especially after the girl's mother admitted to failing a police polygraph test.

But despite the testy relationship between the parents and police, who say that Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin have stopped cooperating with investigators in the case, Bradley says that she knows that police are only doing their jobs, and that her only concern is bringing her daughter home.

Bradley says that she was the one who asked for the polygraph test, telling police on Tuesday that she would take one right away so they could get it over with and move on to whoever took her daughter.

"I said I'll take it right now. I said it the first day," said Bradley, who says that it just isn't possible that she failed the exam. "They showed me the picture and asked me a whole bunch of questions and I told them everything that I knew and I told them everything I remember to be correct."

Bradley says that Lisa Irwin was last seen in her crib in her home in the 3600 block of North Lister around 10:30 p.m. on Monday night. Bradley says that when Lisa's father, Jeremy Irwin, came home from work around 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning, he went into her room to check on her and she wasn't in her crib. They say that they searched the home, and then called 9-1-1.

Bradley says that there was a baby monitor in Lisa's room. She says the only thing that ever wakes her up is Lisa's cries and she did not hear anything coming from the room.

Lisa Irwin's father, Jeremy Irwin, says that Monday night was the first time he had ever worked an overnight shift at his job as an electrician. He says that he wonders who might have known his schedule.

"Who knew where I was? Who knew I wasn't home," said Irwin, who says that he has never wavered in his belief that Bradley has nothing to do with his daughter's disappearance, despite the polygraph exam. "I don't care. I told them I don't care. It doesn't matter, it doesn't matter at all."

Both parents say that all they want is their baby back home.

"She's just a good baby and if you pick her up when she's sleeping, she'll cuddle with you and I mean, she wont cry," said Bradley.

Both Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley insist that they are still cooperating with the investigation, and that police have their phone numbers and know where they are at all times.
