KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) " The mother of a 10-month-old girl who went missing from their Kansas City home says police accused her of being involved in the baby's disappearance.

Deborah Bradley, who wept throughout the interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" Friday, says she understands such accusations are part of the investigation into the disappearance of her daughter, Lisa Irwin.

Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, Lisa's father, sidestepped a question about whether they have taken, or failed, polygraph tests. Kansas City police spokesman Steve Young meanwhile declined to tell KSHB-TV whether they have been tested, citing the ongoing investigation.

Lisa disappeared from her crib sometime late Monday or early Tuesday. The parents discovered their front door open, a window open, house lights blazing and the baby gone.
