Neighbor says husband saw man carrying baby wearing only a diaper

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A woman who lives in the area where police believe a 10-month-old child was abducted said her husband saw a man carrying a baby early Tuesday morning, but didn't think anything of it.

A neighbor, who later asked NBC Action News that she not be named, said her husband was coming home around 12 a.m. Tuesday when he saw the man carrying a baby wearing only a diaper.

"He seen the guy act like he was going to go into a residence," she said, "but then my husband drove off so we're thinking that maybe he was just doing that so that my husband would leave."

The woman said her husband saw the man walking on a street perpendicular to North Lister, where Lisa Irwin lives with her parents and brothers.

Police say Lisa's father returned home from work around 4 a.m. to find the child missing and immediately started banging on neighbors' doors asking if they had seen her.

Kansas City police spokeswoman Stacey Graves said she could not confirm if police were following the possible sighting as a lead.
