KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Nearly two years after 10-month-old Lisa Irwin was reported missing from her Kansas City, Mo., home, police released an aged-progression photo. FOX 4's Kathy Quinn spoke with baby Lisa's parents about the photo and the investigation on Wednesday.

Lisa's mother, Deborah Bradley was emotional during the interview, crying and wiping away tears.

"I didn't want to put it down," she said of the aged-progression photo. Bradley said she was a mix of emotions when she saw it for the first time.

"It was an overwhelming, so many feelings," she said. "It was happiness to see her again, but it was sadness that she's not in person. It was happiness because, hopefully, we'll be able to use that to help find her. Someone has possibly seen her, knows that that picture is what she looks like and it will help generate leads and tips."

Oct. 4 will mark two years since Lisa was reported missing. Deborah Bradley and Lisa's father, Jeremy Irwin, have never agreed to speak with investigators separately. On Wednesday, Bradley said she would do anything to get her daughter back.

"At this point, there is nothing in this world -- and I think he (Jeremy) agrees -- that we wouldn't do to get her back," she said.

Bradley said she understands why police looked at her and Irwin as possible suspects in the beginning, but said now it's time to move forward. Bradley said the FBI has informed her the investigation is ongoing.

During the interview, Bradley told FOX 4's Kathy Quinn she wanted to clear up some misconceptions that have been reported in the media. Bradley said no one ever had a cadaver dog in her bedroom and that a "hit" was not made in her bedroom. She insisted she never failed a lie detector test and claims there was police statement issued saying that there was no reason to believe Lisa was dead, but the media never reported it.
