KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Police say that they have disbanded the Northland command post used by investigators into the disappearance into Lisa Irwin stretches into its sixth week.

According to police, the Irwin investigation has put a big strain on investigators working on others crimes. Authorities have been using an office at the Police Training Academy as their command post, but as leads have slowed down in the case, police and FBI agents are now going back to their normal duties and units as other cases have been piling up.

Irwin disappeared from her crib in her home near 36th Street and North Lister on October 4th. Since then, dozens of investigators have worked to find her, which has put a strain on detectives left to investigate other cases of child abuse, sexual abuse and neglect cases.

Despite the disbanding of the task force, police say that there will still be as many as eight detectives on the Irwin case, and that they will still continue to follow all leads in the case.
