WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — Police investigating the disappearance of a 20-month-old girl from her father's home in Maine say they've received 100 tips from the public.
Waterville Police Chief Joseph Massey said Tuesday that 75 law enforcement officials are continuing to search and to investigate the leads in Ayla Reynolds' disappearance, which remains classified as a missing person case.
He said police lowered the level of a stream a few blocks from the father's home so wardens could get a better look. Police were also looking in trash bins in an attempt to leave no stone unturned.
The youngster was last seen Friday night when her father put her to bed. He called police to report her missing the following morning. Ayla's mother, Trista Reynolds, said she's "hoping and praying" that she's OK.
