This undated picture made available by Conway, N.H. Police shows 20-year-old Krista Dittmeyer. Police said Sunday, April 24, 2011, they have no reason to believe that the Maine woman voluntarily abandoned her car with her infant daughter inside in a New Hampshire parking lot.

CONWAY, N.H. — Police plan to search two vehicles in their investigation of a missing Maine woman whose young daughter was found in one of the cars.

Police say a car belonging to 20-year-old Portland resident Krista Dittmeyer was found Saturday with its engine running and hazard lights flashing in the Cranmore Mountain ski area parking lot in Conway, a town of about 10,000 people.

Police say there’s nothing to indicate Dittmeyer left the area voluntarily. They’re investigating the case as a possible crime.

Dittmeyer’s mother, Lanell Shackley, on Monday told WBZ-TV in Boston there’s no way her daughter would ever leave her baby.

Police Lt. Chris Perley says he wouldn’t want to speculate on the condition of Dittmeyer but would just hope she’s safe and sound.
