Maine police analyze items found in river
WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) -- Maine State Police are analyzing items found in the Kennebec River in Waterville but are not saying whether they are related to missing toddler Ayla Reynolds.
Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland told the Morning Sentinel that the items were found in the river near the Hathaway Mill on Wednesday.
He said police do not know if the items are connected to the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of Alya, who was reporting missing from her father's Waterville home on Dec. 17.
Police believe foul play was involved and they say the three adults who saw her last -- father Justin DiPietro, his girlfriend, Courtney Roberts, and sister Elisha DiPietro -- aren't forthcoming with information.
