KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Dozens of law enforcement officers are searching for a 10-month-old Kansas City girl whose disappearance from the crib in her home sparked fears of an induction by an intruder.

Lisa Irwin's mother reported last seeing the baby when she put her into her crib around 10:30 p.m. Monday. The father called police around 4 a.m. Tuesday when he returned home from his job at an electrical company and couldn't find the baby.

More than 100 officers scoured deep woods behind the home in the northern part of Kansas City on Tuesday afternoon. Officers are investigating whether Lisa was taken by an intruder who climbed through a window.

Police say the parents have been cooperative and investigators had no indication that some type of domestic or relationship dispute was involved.
