PORTLAND, Maine — A website devoted to a Maine toddler who vanished six weeks ago says the girl’s uncle and maternal grandmother have taken polygraph tests as part of the police investigation.

Police are investigating the disappearance of Ayla Reynolds, who was reported missing from her father’s Waterville home on Dec. 17.

The website www.aylareynolds.com said Ayla’s uncle took and passed a polygraph on Thursday and that her grandmother took a test Friday but couldn’t complete it because her prescription medication interfered.

Maine State Police spokesman Stephen McCausland said investigators are not commenting on details such as polygraph tests.

Ayla’s father, Justin DiPietro, told police his daughter wasn’t in her bed when he checked on her the morning of Dec. 17. Ayla’s mother, Trista Reynolds, lives in Portland.
