WATERVILLE, Maine — The frustration continues to grow for the family of a missing Maine toddler as the five-month mark approaches with no arrests and no new developments.
Ayla Reynolds was 20 months old when she disappeared from the home of her father, Justin DiPietro, in Waterville on the night of Dec. 16. She was reported missing the following morning. The father’s family contends Ayla was taken by someone, but police say there’s no evidence of that.
Ayla’s maternal grandfather, Ronald Reynolds, says the wait for new information has been excruciating. He says the family needs answers about what happened.
State police have confirmed that Ayla’s blood was found in the home and investigators say the adults in the home that night have not been forthcoming. Beyond that, investigators are mum.
