KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Military police from the Missouri National Guard are joining the search for a missing Kansas City baby, crawling through a wooded area in search of evidence in her disappearance.

Gov. Jay Nixon ordered 25 members of a military police unit from Harrisonville to help Sunday in the search for Lisa Irwin, who was 10 months old when her parents reported her missing Oct. 4. Police and federal authorities have searched extensively for the missing baby, but so far say they have no suspects or major leads.

The Guard was called to help go over woods less than one mile west of the family’s home, where the baby was last seen.

Guard spokeswoman Rachel Knight says its members are looking for clues that might have been overlooked in previous searches.
