WATERVILLE, Maine — Police have recovered items that could be related to the case of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Items were recovered by investigators behind the Hathaway Creative Center in Waterville. McCausland would not disclose what the items were.

“We recovered some items yesterday. They will be reviewed like the hundreds of other items that have been found,” McCausland said Thursday evening.

McCausland said the items might relate to Reynolds, the 20-month-old who went missing from her father’s home on Dec. 17 in Waterville, or “they may have no relationship,” he said.

The items were taken to the Maine State Police Crime Lab in Augusta, he said.
