PORTLAND, Maine — Trista Reynolds, mother of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds, said in an Internet post late Wednesday that she was unable to complete a polygraph test Wednesday because of a medical condition.

Reynolds posted the following statement on the website

“I have prepared this statement because I said that I would release the results of my lie detector test to the public. I took that test today.

“According to the test administrator, who was very courteous and professional, I was unable to complete the test due to a medical condition. It was suggested to me that after treatment by a doctor I would be able to finish the test, but the investigating authority is content with the general outcome of the incomplete test (as it stands).

“This is far from the result I wanted to share with the public, but I will take the advice of the administrator and seek attention for my medical condition so I can be healthy enough to be re-tested if required. In the meantime I wish that people will keep Ayla in their hearts and wish with all of us for her safe return.”

Reynolds confirmed Wednesday night that she had written the statement but declined further comment.
