Bail denied for Mainer who triggered Amber Alert

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — A 39-year-old man who triggered Maine’s first Amber Alert after allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend and abducting their 2-year-old daughter has had his bail request denied.

According to the Portland Press Herald, Superior Court Justice G. Arthur Brennan ruled that Gary Traynham, of Kennebunk, will remain in jail as he awaits trial on charges of gross sexual assault, aggravated assault, burglary and criminal restraint.

Prosecutors say Traynham broke into his ex-girlfriend’s Sanford apartment last November, sexually assaulted her and took off with their daughter, which sparked the state’s first Amber Alert.

Traynham and the girl were found the following day in New Hampshire.
