The young brothers of missing 11-month-old Lisa Irwin were interviewed by authorities on Thursday over what they saw the night that the child went missing from her crib in her family's Northland home.

Irwin family attorney John Picerno told FOX 4 News that the children were interviewed for a total of two hours on Thursday evening by a forensic interviewer flown in from Washington, D.C., by the FBI.

The boys were scheduled to be interviewed two weeks ago, but those interviews were cancelled by the family at the last minute.

"The family is relieved that the boys have been interviewed, that it went well, and they won't have to be interviewed again," said Picerno.

Picerno would not elaborate on the questioning, except to confirm that it happened at undisclosed location. He says the family agreed to the re-interview of the boys when he took the case on November 1.

Picerno says the FBI requested the delay to give it time to schedule the special forensics expert who is interviewing the half-brothers. The female questioner brought in by the FBI has more than 10 years experience and has done more than 1000 interviews, according to Picerno.

Police confirmed that their detectives were in a separate room and could communicate questions to the expert who interviewed the boys. The boys were interviewed separately.

Irwin was last seen in the crib of her home in the 3600 block of N. Lister on October 3. Her first birthday is Friday.
