WATERVILLE, Maine — The mother of a 20-month-old missing girl in Maine says she has now spoken to the toddler’s father but that she still has unanswered questions about the disappearance.

Trista Reynolds said Tuesday that she still isn’t getting “the whole truth” about what happened in Justin DiPietro’s Waterville home on the night Ayla Reynolds went missing.

Reynolds criticized DiPietro for refusing to speak to her after Ayla’s disappearance. She said Tuesday on NBC’s “Today” show that they’ve now spoken, but she still wonders why he waited more than two weeks to make a public appearance to appeal for the return of their daughter.

DiPietro told authorities he last saw Ayla on the night of Dec. 16. He called the police the next morning when he discovered she wasn’t in her bed.
