KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Leads in the case of a missing Kansas City baby have slowed to a trickle, prompting police to close a command post where about a dozen investigators have been working to find her.

Police insisted Wednesday they haven't stopped looking for Lisa Irwin, who was 10 months old when her parents reported her missing Oct. 4. But with little new information coming in and plenty of child abuse cases pending, police say it didn't make sense to keep so many federal and local agents solely dedicated to the case and outside their normal offices.

Investigators say they've cleared most of the more than 1,300 tips that have come in, but police have no solid leads or suspects. Her parents believe she was snatched from her crib overnight by an intruder.
