    Come on State Police, We want answers. You have the evidence. Find this adorable baby and bring her home.

    • Anonymous

      maybe with the public’s help and the sharing of the evidence at hand, this baby can be brought home

      Well if a certain person would just confess it would be easier, this person will live their liife knowing what happened to this precious little one, and hopefully will rot in hell when they confess. Come on tell us where little Ayla is, i would say the name but it will get deleted and then i get crapped on because they say they did not do it

        Baby killers usually don’t confess. They have this belief they can get away with the crime. So its up to the State Police to start applying pressure.

          This person who knows who they are will eventually come out the conscious is gonna hit them. I know a very good friend that stole a candy bar( she was young) six years old i believe (neighor) from a local store(mom and pop) she had a guitly conscious thirty years later and paid for it.

            that’s cause she has a conscience and a soul.

            Yes she did. And i have to admit this person i went to school with and she is the most amazing woman ever.

            Don’t know if Ayla will ever be found. But miracles DO happen…and I wish this little girl could be home for Christmas this year. What a wonderful Christmas that would be!!

            It’s fairly ridiculous to assume that someone capable of harming a child has a conscience.

      • Anonymous

        The person won’t confess. We have to wait till one of the others breaks down. It will happen sooner or later….

          I have a feeling this person will confess soon, they are gonna get sick of seeing it in the paper and the news. I hope little Ayla is ok and they find her alive, but at this point its not looking good

            They won’t confess unless the killer gets immunity. Right from the pos mouth. Right Justin? Lance where are you? Hiding still? Can’t handle the pressure?

        While I have no idea who you are talking about, God Almighty does, you may find comfort in reading Hebrews 9:27 A man lives once and then the judgement and Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay,” saith the Lord.

        Who ever is responsible for this will, one day, like all, face the Lord Jesus Christ, the absolute and ultimate judge, for He who created makes the rules and He who makes the rules is the final judge.

    Baby Ayla will never see justice………but the person that killed her will have to live with it all of his life.

      What makes you think that all people have morals or shame?.. So having to live with it means nothing.. Here is a thought to ponder Joe, Life is not fair, and if you were told it all balances out you were lied to.

    I am sure that there is someone that can solve this! Maybe the S.P. should look for someone who has a lot of experience in this type of case. This is not the type of case they see every day.

    • Rocky4

      I’m not sure why you think MSP can’t handle this. Just this year
      they solved a 32 year old case and convicted the murderer. Damned
      good I’d say!

      • Anonymous

        I hope that’s sarcastic. I think it’s disgusting to take 32 yrs to solve a case. They need to move this case forward. Release the 911 call. Put some pressure on the Dips. They’re living their life as though Ayla never existed. The time is now, Justice for Ayla.

        • Rocky4

          Not sarcastic at all. They have the best of everything at their disposal and some very smart people. You think it is disgusting
          I say it is admirable, tenacious, and smart police work.
          You’re so freaking clever go down t Augusta and offer your
          services at MSP headquarters. Otherwise, let those who
          REALLY know something do their jobs.

            If it takes 32 yrs for justice for Ayla, that means she gets no justice. Im sure you would feel differently if it was your loved one.

        I agree, but this case is coming up on a year and they got nothing. Even the best in the world needs help once in a while. sometimes some new ideas turn things around.

  • jerrymyx

    I too, think she was sold!… buy whom, not sure on that one! The blood in the basement was a staged act in my opinion!! Now don”t jump on me, it is what I think, and I KNOW I am not a detective..OK If Ayla is better off, don”t think so, she belongs with her Mommy and brother, and other family members! Look how much improvement Trista has accomplished!!

    • Dope Boy

      I hear ya. However thankfully she was young enough, and she won’t remember.

      Now, it is perhaps better she is in a more stable environment. Her biological parents would have used her as a pawn to get back at each other. Not healthy.

      To them she is merely just an ornament, conceived by and through immaturity at some bizarre attempt to play house.

      And please tell your friend (hint hint) before she has another child to do some volunteer work first at an animal shelter learning about ‘care & responsibility’.

      This is the classic case as with most of these young people who have children trying to find what was missing in their adolescence, thinking a child will bring the love ect. that they perhaps never felt.

      But all to often the parents merely pass on their own emotional traumas, dramas and what not and the vicious cycle continues.

            You need a dr. We certainly don’t want to catch what you got. It’s affected your brain…..

  • Trista this is not in anyway your fault. Please don’t do this to yourself,you were smart to go to rehab and try to help yourself and your children. I think you did exactly what you should of done.Who would of thought that Ayla could not have been trusted with her own father? Put the blame where it belongs and that’s not with you as far as i’am concerned.I just want you to know Ayla, you and your family are in my prayers and thoughts every day and i have followed this case from day one…and i check everyday for updates. We lost a daughter and i know what you are going through.

    “Reynolds was reported missing on December 17, 2011”
    Before December 17,what was the last day someone saw/ was with the infant…besides the ‘people’ that were with her on December 17

    • I have brought this up a couple of times before as well…. Previous news reports have said that other than those with her on December 17, people hadn’t seen her for days if not weeks. It was December 16 (or there abouts) Dad got notice that some one was going to be coming to get her. It is my belief, that at that point they were like “Oh sh&t, what are we going to do? We gotta figure out something….”; and here we are! Long story, short of course…

    Ayla’s story is just so sad. How could anyone hurt a little baby like
    that? It’s almost a year later and no arrests. That is wrong! I wish I
    could believe Ayla was still alive but the blood evidence is chilling. http://www.justiceforayla.org brings up a lot of good questions about this case and has some interesting theories. I hope the police can make arrests soon!

      I hope, “justice” will prevail. One way or another……

  • Anonymous

    With so many people in the home the nights of Ayla’s disappearance, there is a high likelihood that one of them will come forward at some time in the future. While it might be 2 years or 10 years, they will eventually explain what happened. It is only human nature. These people foolishly think they are “protecting” the perpetrator by staying silent but the guilt will eat away at them over time. How many stories have we seen in the news where after 10, 20 or even 30 years someone comes forward with info on a murder and then it is solved.

    I am glad that this major trauma for Trista did not cause her to relapse but the potential is still there and judging by her statements she is still at very high risk. If she is still blaming herself, that is putting a lot of stress on her and stress & pain are the two leading causes of relapse. While it is true that Ayla would not have been with the dad had it not been for her drug addiction, it is also true that Trista had no possible way of knowing that her daughter would be harmed. She also needs to remember that she had nothing to do with the disappearance and she is not responsible for the actions of Ayla’s father. Trista’s son is probably the only reason she is still sober and he is the reason she is still sober. He gave her a purpose and a reason to go on. I only hope for the best for this young man and while he has had a rough start, I hope his future is filled with nothing but positivity and prosperity.

    Trista, you are doing the absolute right thing, and that is getting your life together and being there for your little boy. You have a suffered a terrible loss, but you need to be there for him. He can be the light of your life and make you stronger than ever. If you are there for him now and always and live a good clean life, he will not blame you for anything. He will only share in your sorrow and pain. One day at a time and enjoy what you do have now, and make every day a good one. I hope you get closure soon so you can really find peace.

    I’ve yet to see any interview that appears genuine with this woman.

    • What’s the matter? Can’t sign in with your name? Trista did the right thing. Trista is a better person now and I think she looks much healthier now. She got right for her children, and she should be commended for it. How dare you sit in judgement.

        I have no dog in this fight, but since she was a drug addict and had to go to rehab, pretty sure this person can be judgmental about it. It has been proven with facts that she is no saint in her own right.

          She may not be a saint but she didn’t kill her baby. BTW, I’m no saint and neither are you.

  • I will never forget Ayla. I’m so sorry. I won’t say I know how you feel, because no one really does. But, I do have insight into how it might feel. My niece took her 3 year old and has completely cut off her entire family. (mother, father, grandparents, brother, cousins, aunts, uncles…everyone) I often took care of the baby. The last 3 weeks before my niece cut us off, the baby was here for 3 weeks..24/7 (aside from 2 weekends her mother took her). The reason she cut us off is because I called DHS when the mother’s boyfriend dropped off the baby after one weekend and the baby had 2 black eyes and a handprint on her bottom. DHS told me they “had enough” that they wouldn’t allow the mother to take her. Then my niece showed up to get the baby. She spoke to DHS alone for over an hour and suddenly they no longer “had enough”. They let her walk out the door with her and that is the last I have seen the baby. That was August 12. My niece has a 5 year old also. She misses her sister. She is in the custody of her father and I thank God for that.

    I don’t believe she was sold, she is gone and the adults in that house know what happens and one day, one will crack. In the mean time, Trista – stay clean for your other children. I’m glad to hear you realize how much destruction drugs/alcohol can do in your life if you don’t stay clean. Keep up the good work

      Agreed. The one’s saying that obv haven’t followed the case. Or could be the Turd’s or Dips throwing out another distraction. It’s nice the Big Bad Capt thinks Ayla is better off. WTF

  • Briney

    Why wont Ayla’s father and the other occupants of that house talk to police?

    Can’t the state bring a charge of child negligence against the father? The other two – suppression of evidence?

    The argument of having no case, for lack of a corpus delicti has been proven wrong in at least two recent homicides.

    After the initial shock and numerous fruitless searches, it appeared that the state backed off. The trio who occupied the house the night Ayla was reported missing, seem to be forgotten.

    Surely, all three suspects should be hounded and grilled until someone breaks? The trio have the answers. The state should be able to get them to talk.

      They’re all covering for one another in that house. They all know what happened.

        Of course they do. Maddening to think how easy they got off the hook.

    I wish this Mother would have some closure. I’d like to think postive and say that she is just in someone else’s home, and they are loving her, but I fear the worst. I hope there is closure in one form or another as the year closes in on us. Poor little, beautiful baby. She will remain in my thoughts and prayers as well as her family.

    Think people. They can’t arrest anyone or “throw them in jail” if they can’t prove their case. Its obvious they don’t have enough to arrest anyone or else they would have already. They need more to convict and don’t have it. You don’t want to allow a guilty person to go free because all they have is circumstantial evidence, do you?

    • Anonymous

      they can win a case with circumstantial evidence. However, I agree I don’t want another scum like Casey Anthony on the streets. Imo they want her body to charge the right pos. It’s obv with LE spending over 500000 searching the river they know something more than what they’re saying.

    I have said it many times before and i will say it once again. You cannot find trace evidence of blood from this poor little girl in the basement and just do Nothing…NOTHING!!!….Krista, sweet lady, be proud of what you have accomplished in your rehabilitation and be there for that little man. Remember those happy times with Ayla and my prayers are with you every day. I truly hope you find the answers that you are looking for soon.
