Case of Missing Ayla Reynolds in Waterville, ME … Mother Trista Reynolds Claims She Filed Paperwork to Get Full Custody of Ayla Bell Reynolds Just Before Disappearance
A new twist has just been presented in the case of missing 20 month old Ayla Reynolds in Waterville, Maine.The toddler has been missing since December 17, 2011; however, according to an ABC News report, Trista Reynolds, the mother of missing Ayla Reynolds, filed to receive full custody of the toddler prior to her disappearance.
The mother of the Maine baby who went missing from her crib revealed she had filed to receive full custody of the girl just prior to her disappearance from her father’s home.
Trista Reynolds says she filed paperwork Thursday to receive full custody of her daughter Ayla Bell Reynolds — one day before the tot went missing — but says she had not told the girl’s father.
“Her father had no idea. He didn’t know I went to file … he’ll know now, but I never told him and no one told him,” she said.
Although it has been reported that the parents of missing Ayla Reynolds are coopering with authorities, there appears to be a bit of dissension between the two. The parents of Ayla are separated and appear to have not much contact with each other.
Justin DiPietro lives separately from Trista Reynolds, who according to police has no permanent address, and the two share custody of their daughter. Trista Reynolds, says she has not spoken to him since their daughter disappeared.
“I’ve had no contact with him; he’s had no contact with me. All I know is he’s the last man to see my daughter,” she said. “He helped out, he would take care of her until I was on my feet, but we’ve been unable to get along and parent together the last few weeks.”
Something just seems a bit odd that this toddler would have just wondered away. One would suspect that she would have already been found if that were the case.
