WATERVILLE, Maine — A demonstration will be held in front of the Waterville Police Department today in response to the fact that no one has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of Ayla Reynolds, a toddler who was reported missing on Dec. 17, 2011.
Calling it a “Press for Prosecution Protest,” the demonstrators will march at noon and host a performance by a singer/songwriter.
In recent months, the child’s mother, Trista Reynolds, has taken actions to draw the public’s attention to the case and to try to put pressure on police to arrest Justin DiPietro, the child’s father. DiPietro reported the child missing to the police, saying she had disappeared from his home overnight.
In September, Reynolds told the Bangor Daily News that Maine State Police investigators had shown her photographs of blood in DiPietro’s home.
No one has been arrested in connection to this case.
