Officials Step Up Efforts To Find Missing Toddler

WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) - The FBI is stepping up its effort to find a missing 20-month-old toddler as investigators comb through trash bins and pore over more than 100 leads.

Waterville Police Chief Joseph Massey refuses to speculate on whether Ayla Reynolds is still alive, saying the investigation remains a missing-person case.

The FBI on Tuesday was doing door-to-door canvassing of neighbors to seek information and police were checking out trash bins across the city. A portion of a stream a few blocks from the home where Ayla was living was drained nearly dry so game wardens could get a better look at it.

Ayla was last seen when her father, Justin DiPietro, put her to bed Friday night. He reported her missing the following morning, saying he found her bed empty.
