KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Decades of statistics on infant abductions in the U.S. suggest one of the least likely scenarios in this week's disappearance of a Kansas City baby is that a stranger broke into her home and quietly snatched her from her crib.

i know families get offended when police focus on them and, seemingly, waste precious time, but the stastics make this a logical necessity. they need to cooperate fully.

Our thoughts are that she was taken by someone known to the family....... that is the only plausible explanation. What a darling little girl.............God keep her safe.

i hate to be a cynic, but in so many of these child abduction cases, it is often the parents who are responsible and trying to cover up something more sinister. i pray that is not case here. i pray that the child will be found and safe.

What sweet baby! So if she has been taken by someone who wants own baby, she is unharmed? I hope so!

There was a young girl kidnapped from her bedroom here in my town and I was close with the family. If the police had taken it seriously from the moment it happened, the girl might possibly still be alive. My phone was tapped and the parents accused and reporters called me with accusations against the parents and I told them there was no way possible they were involved and if they wrote that crap I'd sue them myself. The kidnapper/killer was a well-known person of interest and was stopped within hours of the kidnapping but his car was not searched. It was a dreadful time for all of us and I still cry about it. Senseless. I pray this child is safe and comes home soon.

The most heart-breaking fact is that 1500 parents per year kill their children; most under 1year old. What a sad indictment that is on our society.
I pray for the child and her parents that this is resolved quickly.

All leads are pointing to the mother right now. I hope they find this little baby,safe and sound. But, the possibility of that becomes less and less with each passing day. The whole story does not "smell" right, something is amiss.

I just do not believe the mother had anything to do with it. I just want them to find Lisa alive and unharmed FIRST and THEN they can play ''The Blame Game'' which is sort of what the investigator said.

The best & most important thing any of us can & should do right now, is to continue to pray for baby Lisa's safe return. We should not point fingers at anyone at this time, there is no proof of anything. I also have to point out that when my own husband was 8-9 months old, he climbed out of his crib, AND, out his window, all without his mom knowing! She was in the backyard. Thankfully, a neighbor found him & brought him back home. You can only imagine what could have happened! Anything is possible, we can hope for the best.

Is it a coincidence or has there been alot of news about 'a baby' going missing lately? Are we becoming more aware of these happenings or are there more babies being taken? As a parent....please watch over your precious little ones. I also pray for her safe return.♣Dianne

I agree with Allan and Shirley. Something's not right here. Becky, your experience was so sad. Neglectful police work can happen at crucial times. I would like to hope for the best. We've seen what may happen through lies and deceipt. Thanx BarbCat.
