After multiple cancelations, police expect to re-interview the two stepbrothers of baby Lisa Irwin sometime this week, according to Fox News.

The re-interview was originally scheduled for Oct. 28, but family attorney Joe Tacopina canceled last minute and promised to reschedule.

Lisa’s parents, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, told authorities their daughter was snatched from her crib in Kansas City on Oct. 4.

When originally interviewed on Oct.4, the two stepbrothers told a child specialist they had heard a noise the night their sister was reported missing.

Investigators requested a re-interview of the two boys, ages 5 and 8, and said the stress of recent events did not allow for a proper interview on Oct. 4.

Kansas City police officer Darin Snapp told ABCNews.com he wanted to re-interview the brothers to see “if they remember anything that might be able to help find their younger sister.”

DNA samples will also be taken from the boys’ cheeks to compare with the DNA found in the house.

Bradley's fiancé and Lisa's father, Jeremy Irwin, was out on a late call doing electrical work for a local Starbuck the night his daughter disappeared. When he returned from work roughly around 4 a.m., he reported several lights on, the front door unlocked, three missing cell phones and a tampered screen window.

Upon checking his daughter’s crib, Irwin realized Lisa was missing.

Although officials contend the couple complied with authorities’ requests, public suspicion circulated when Bradley switched the time she last saw her infant. Originally claiming she put her child down at 10:30 p.m., Bradley then changed her story to say 6:40 p.m. local time.

More concern arose when Bradley told NBC news that she had been drinking heavily on the evening of her child’s disappearance. Bradley said she had “enough to be drunk.”

Bradley has said she fears being arrested for her baby’s disappearance, because “if they arrest me, people are going to stop looking for her.”

On Monday, Fox News reported that police still wish to conduct separate interviews with the parents.

 "There's a whole list of things that they may know," Kansas City Police Captain Steve Young previously told ABCNews.com.

Police said that potential suspects, including “Jersey” the repair person, have cooperated with authorities.

Neighbor Mary Hurt reported seeing “Jersey” near the Bradley home on the night of Lisa’s disappearance. Hurt told CNN’s Nancy Grace she thought Jersey was “shady.”

On Monday, Fox News reported that police plan to throw out old leads in the case, which entered its one-month mark on Nov. 4.
