The Kansas City StarFebruary 3, 2012 

Detectives investigating the disappearance of Lisa Irwin met with the baby’s parents Thursday for the first time since Oct. 8 but said they did not learn anything significant.

Kansas City police issued a brief statement saying they are hopeful there will be more meetings.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Stacey Graves said the meeting Thursday was with both parents, jointly, along with their attorney. Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin have declined to be questioned separately since the early days of the investigation.

The parents have taped an interview on television’s “Dr. Phil” show that will be broadcast today.

Lisa Irwin was reported missing on Oct. 4. Bradley told police she last saw Lisa the evening of Oct. 3.

Lawyer John Picerno said his clients discussed neighbors and others in the area who could have had access to their home.
