The court document said police took a comforter, baby shirt, purple shorts, Glo-worm toy, “Cars” blanket, rolls of tape and tape dispenser from the home.

The search warrant application said police asked for the warrant to get an uninterrupted search of the home, even though the parents had given permission.

The court document also says that Bradley told police that she did not initially search behind the house because she was “afraid of what she might find.”

Baby Lisa was reported missing around 4 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4. She is described as white, with blonde hair and blue eyes, about 30 inches tall and weighing 26-30 pounds. Her family said she has two bottom teeth, a small bug bite under her left ear, and a beauty mark on her right outer thigh.

The family said she was last seen wearing purple shorts and a purple shirt with white kittens on it.
