Police departments seldom deploy dive teams randomly, methinks they must have some information that suggests that the baby may have been killed and dumped in the river. Let's pray not.
Click above, WOW what is going on with this case, what is going on with the mother. What is going on?
Re: Alleged Text Message Trista claims Justin sent her saying something to the effect of, "Oh, I`m worried. I`m scared that somebody is going to take the child." for all those saying the link I posted to the last article is a joke, here it is being talked about on a nationally syndicated show Jane Velez Mitchell.
If you don't want to watch the whole video just skip to the video at 15 minutes 40 ...seconds.
As also stated, I have no way to confirm whether she said that, nor whether if she did, if it's actually true that he sent her such a text.
I am sure the police know and if it is true, it would merely be one piece of circumstantial evidence and not enough to make an arrest. Obviously if they are trying to build a case against SOMEONE at this point, they are not going to disclose to the public each piece of circumstantial evidence they gather until they charge someone at which point under the rules of discovery it would have to be disclosed to the defense and at that point MAY become public knowledge.
The only missing from the mothers tearful interviews, are the tears. Her eyes are dry. Go figure. I am praying that this child is in a safe haven somewhere.
I am just speculating based on reading news accounts,opinions, and reading similar crime incidents involvig missing children, speculating, meaning i could be wrong, this crime is not going to have a happy ending. If someone or someone[s] was holiding the child i think they would have come forward by now or dropped the child off somewhere or slipped up by now.
I think you're right!
I don't think you're right.
Ayla Reynold’s father attends Waterville vigil in honor of missing toddler
WATERVILLE, Maine — No amount of attention is too much attention when it comes to Ayla Reynolds, the missing toddler whose blue eyes, smiling face and blond hair are recognized throughout Maine and far beyond.
That’s the theory under which members of the Waterville community gathered Tuesday night for a candlelight vigil at the First Congregational Church. As the intense search by investigators and nationwide media frenzy with Ayla at its center reached the one-month point Tuesday, there are some who are worried that the public’s attention is waning. Danielle Bartz, who organized Tuesday’s vigil, won’t let that happen

Ayla's mom: I'll take test, too
PORTLAND -- The mother of a 21-month-old girl who went missing a month ago says she's arranging with investigators for her and others in her family to take polygraph tests regarding her daughter's disappearance.
Trista Reynolds told the Bangor Daily News on Monday that she has been offering to take a lie detector test since the day her daughter disappeared.
Ayla Reynolds was reported missing Dec. 17 by her father, Justin DiPietro, who told police she wasn't in her bed that morning in his Waterville home
I'd be a raving lunatic if one of my kids was missing, I'd be out there turning over rocks and garbage cans, banging on doors... not sitting at a candlelight vigil... sorry, I've never seen the point of that except to garner pity/sympathy for the family. Support can be offered in so many more productive ways than burning a candle and crying. To me, candlelight vigils carry a similar message as roadside crosses... anyhow, I can honestly say, you wouldn't find me wasting daylight sitting on my backside at any kind of vigil until my kid was home... one way or another...
I lost a cat once for 4 days. I drove up and down every street in a 1 mile radius, twice a day. Walked around the neighborhood multiple times. Made multiple calls. I ate absolutely nothing for 4 days because my appetite was gone. I was close to clinical depression as much as anytine in my life. I would not talk to anyone. Finally the cat showed up on day 4, all matted and battered up.
JM...take a look at post #58. Is it a double standard thing? What do you expect him to do, get on any tv show that'll have ya and fake tears like the "mutha"?
SW, no double standard from me. I think dad is an abusive manipulative liar and mom is an attention-seeker, which disgusts me even more in this case than usual because we're talking about a baby's life here.
Missing toddler's mom unable to complete polygraph
The mother of a toddler reported missing from her father's Waterville home a month ago says she was unable to finish a lie detector test because of a medical condition
Trista Reynolds, the mother of 1-year-old Ayla Reynolds, said in a message posted on a website dedicated to finding the little girl, that she started taking a polygraph test on Wednesday but was told by the test administrator that she could not finish because of the undisclosed condition.
Bangor Daily News Toddler Ayla Reynolds’ mother unable to complete polygraph test
.................snip........................“This is far from the result I wanted to share with the public, but I will take the advice of the administrator and seek attention for my medical condition so I can be healthy enough to be re-tested if required. In the meantime I wish that people will keep Ayla in their hearts and wish with all of us for her safe return.”
We can only speculate, but generally during the pre-test interview the person taking the exam discloses any medical conditions as well as any medications they may be taking, legal or illegal. If a condition exists that would preclude an examination without medical consultation then it's unlikely any polygraph would have been conducted. If the examinee were having difficulties during the examination that resulted in inconclusive results then the examiner may have probed further to determine why. At that point the examinee may have disclosed additional information which made further testing impossible without a medical consultation.
Jim Thank you for your comment, helps understand a little more of what might have happen
Is compulsive liar a medical condition now?
High blood pressure is a medical condition, and is monitored during the exam. One issue is whether it spikes during one of the relevant questions.
Of course, participation is voluntary. The subject can CLAIM that she's "faint" and cannot continue -- if the going gets too tough.
Paroxysmal coughing from the flu would also terminate the exam. We don't really know. The examiner does.
With all due respect, she's a drug addict who is, at best, in the early stages of recovery. She's a mess anyway you look at. I can't image someone three months sober going through this ordeal without some major issues. Drug addicts have all the problems of alcoholics and then some.
I heard someone say about drug addicts and alcoholics - "An alcoholic will steal your wallet. A drug addict will steal your wallet and then help you look for it."
Even if she's solid in her recovery program, she's dealing with major issues just functioning on a day-to-day level.
I've never heard that one before, but truer words were never spopken!
Missing toddler's mom: 'I think she's alive and holding on'
When Trista Reynolds underwent a polygraph exam Wednesday, she was told by the test administrator that she could not finish because of a medical condition. Reynolds would not disclose the specifics of her condition to NBC News, but did discuss the questions she was asked, and said her answers were determined sufficient by investigators.
The test asked “just if I had taken Ayla or if I know who could have gone and taken Ayla,’’ Reynolds told TODAY exclusively. “Obviously, no, I have no idea who took her or where she is or anything like (that), and I never took her. I have no reason to hide of any of that. I would never do that.’’
Tom C, did she just go from illegal drugs to legal drugs? Is it considered being sober if one just switches to methadone? Also wondering, who is paying for her to stay in the motel?
New website offers fresh details on Ayla
WATERVILLE -- A new website dedicated to 21-month-old Ayla Reynolds offers fresh details about the day the toddler was reported missing more than a month ago, describing "instant panic" as people awoke to find the toddler had vanished from her bedroom.
The website, www.thislittlelightofmaine.com was launched this week by Angela Harry, a blogger and friend of DiPietro. She said she hopes it will raise awareness of the toddler's disappearance. Harry, 36, lives in Washington, D.C., but used to live in Maine. She has known DiPietro since he was 8 years old, she said.

Is it considered being sober if one just switches to methadone?
I don't know if she's on methadone or not. In Maine, I think you are not allowed to drive a COMMERCIAL vehicle on methadone, but I don't believe there are any other explicit restrictions.
Speaking from experience that my wife and I have had with methadone.
If someone on "methadone treatment" is "sober" then let's see what happens if they close the methadone clinic for 4 days.
Those were her words yesterday, and she has "been there", unlike most doctors and "counselors"!
When anyone is on methadone treatment, they have simply replaced heroin, cocaine or whatever with methadone, which is a synthetic narcotic which acts on the body the same way any opoid does. I think people receiving methadone treatment may be better off (that is somewhat debatable) but as long as they take methadone on a regular basis they are every bit the addict that they always were.
My wife quit methadone after many years of addiciton. It required an iron will to succeed, 24 hrs a day. The withdrawl was the worst thing I have ever seen in my lifetime. All I could do was watch. Not a thing I could do to help other than offer support. Talk about a "helpless feeling".
She has been "sober" for 9 yrs and she is sober as she uses no opoids of any kind, including methadone or any other synthetic, that our pharmaceutical industry keeps "inventing" in the quest for the obscene profits that can be derived by steering addicts to their lucrative products, ones that no one has any incentive to try and get the addict off of!
WOW woodcanoe, please tell your wife congrats. I wish her well.
Me too, I hope and wish the best for her. Congrats to you Mrs Canoe.
Police won’t release 911 call in case of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds Bangor Daily Story
WATERVILLE, Maine — Police have denied a request to release the audio recording and written transcript of the 911 call made to report the disappearance of a Waterville toddler
Morning Sentinel storry clic here
....................Snip.............Rather, Rumsey said, keeping the information confidential helps police determine the trustworthiness of tips and sources in the investigation.
"If we know information hasn't been reported publicly, we can have a higher degree of confidence that the person we're talking to knows what they're talking about and isn't regurgitating what they've seen in the news or on a comment forum or on a blog," he said.
After about a month of not covering this Waterille story,Nancy Grace is back with nighly updates and commentary. Although she is not spending the entire hour on her show. I am sure when there is a major break though with the disappearance she will be back with one hour shows.
Nobody knows anything.
