Ayla Reynolds disappeared from her Waterville, Maine home six weeks ago, and police are readjusting their tactics with the media. According to Boston Fox News, the Maine state police, who admitted they never had a case like the one of 20-month-old Ayla Reynolds, will begin to be more upfront with the media. It is the hope of Ayla's mother than the media attention will help lead to a break in the case.
After discovering blood that belonged to Ayla in the basement of her father's home, the police are returning their attention back to the three adults that were home the night the toddler went missing. Spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, Steve McCausland, said that detectives on the state and local level believe that Ayla's father, Justin DiPietro, as well as the two other adults, know more than what they have revealed to investigators. McCausland went on to further say that the theory of someone kidnapping the toddler in the small house without awakening anyone doesn't pass the straight-face test. So far the police have no found evidence that supports abduction.
On the night of the child's disappearance the two other adults staying at DiPietro's home was his girlfriend Courtney Roberts, and DiPietro's sister. Ayla was staying with her father while her mother Trista Reynolds was in a substance abuse rehabilitation program.
According to the U.K. Daily Mail, DiPietro declined to comment to reporters Monday as he rushed inside his house.
