WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — Police say there are no new developments in the case of toddler Ayla Reynolds nearly a year after she was reported missing from her Maine home, and they're resolved to keep investigating until it's solved.
Maine state troopers and Waterville police held a news conference Friday to mark a year's passing since the case opened. Ayla was 20 months old when her father reported last Dec. 17 that she was missing. That prompted searches by police, game wardens and FBI agents who canvassed neighborhoods, lowered streams and sent divers into the Kennebec River.
State police spokesman Steve McCausland says this is the biggest criminal investigation in Maine's history. He says the year's anniversary does not affect the scope of the investigation, and police are in it for the long haul.
