    I've seen the continued assertion in this thread that there were situations like this years ago, where there were multiple children missing at the same time, with their parents stonewalling. But what are the examples?
    That list doesn't show that there weren't examples cases similar to Anthony's. It doesn't prove or disprove.

    Yes, my assertion is that there are more cases where a parent or guardian claims a child abduction and then endlessly stonewalls police.

    I agree that there may have been examples prior to Anthony, but from what I can find, not more than one or two at a time. In the last two months alone, there are at least three new unresolved cases, and about six total, dating back a year.

    Totally hate to interrupt this awesome little banter.....but after reading the original post, and the story about the dad pleading for her return, I've come to realize that something is very much wrong.
    Mom filed to get the daughter back, and the very next day daughter is missing. Me thinks dad's family has her hiding. Mom is probably responsible for the broken arm, and they don't want the child to go back.
    I wish I quoted what dad said. It was something like, "Please bring her back. You may think you're doing the right thing, but you're not. She needs to be with her mom and dad" or something along those lines. Dad even said he thinks someone took her to care for her, not hurt or kill her.
    Very interesting....

    I saw that, too. Some people think he might be alluding to someone actually removing the child from the home because they think both parents stink.

    That also reminds me - Sky Metalwala's dad (the case of the 2-year-old in Washington State) thinks that Sky might be in the Ukraine with relatives of his ex wife. He was saying that on the basis of not having seen his son in about 6 months. However, his 4- year-old daughter was supposed to have been with the mom and daughter the day of the disappearance, and I would think that the detectives would have validated whether the father's theory is realistic or not.

    nope. the dad "fell" while carrying her and groceries and landed on her or something stupid like that. the dad also didn't participate in putting up fliers, wearing the missing baby shirts or speaking to the mother for two weeks.

    I didnt see anyone mention Hailey Cummings

    The little
    girl who disappeared around the time Caylee Anthony did. I think the 17 year-old girlfriend of the father was at home & someone supposedly came in & stole her in the middle of the night. A few months later, still no Hailey, the dad & girlfriend get engaged... then they get busted for a meth manufacturing. I dont think Hailey has ever been found

    Impossible. Dad says he slipped & fell on her, but HIS Mom is the one who made him wait before taking her to the hospital.

    Police: Blood discovered at DiPietro home is Ayla’s
    Investigators won’t confirm a statement by Ayla’s maternal relatives about the quantity of blood found.

    By BEN McCANNA Morning Sentinel

    WATERVILLE — Tests show that blood found by police at Ayla Reynolds’ home belongs to the missing toddler, and her maternal family says they were told the quantity was “more than a small cut would produce.”

    “The testing has not been completed and more work remains, but we have found samples of Ayla’s blood,” Steve McCausland, spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety, said Sunday night. A day earlier, police had confirmed the discovery of the blood during a search of the home’s basement in December, shortly after Ayla disappeared.

    McCausland’s statement followed the disclosure earlier Sunday on aylareynolds.com, a website maintained by Ayla’s maternal family in Portland, that the blood was Ayla’s. The site also said that Maine State Police told the family the quantity of blood was “more than a small cut would produce.”

    McCausland wouldn’t comment Sunday night on the amount of blood discovered.

    The family contended on the website that state police shared the blood test results with them, but planned to withhold the information from the media.

    McCausland said police had initially decided not to report that the blood belonged to Ayla because police needed to perform tests on other samples.

    “I prefer not to give out partial results, but (the Reynolds) family has released that tonight, and that information is correct,” he said.

    Ayla was reported missing from the home at 29 Violette Ave. on the morning of Dec. 17. She was 20 months old at the time.

    Justin DiPietro, Ayla’s father, declined to comment Sunday.

    McCausland wouldn’t comment on whether any arrests are pending.

    “At this point, we’re still working hard to locate Ayla. That’s our main priority,” he said.

    The Reynolds family remains optimistic, according to the website. The site is maintained by Jeff Hanson, the husband of Ayla’s maternal grandmother, Becca Hanson.

    “Even in light of this evidence we are more determined than ever to find out what has happened to Ayla and we still cling to the hope that she is alive and will be returned to us. We urge anyone that has information about Ayla to come forward now and unburden yourself of the truth,” the site says.

    Information about the blood test results came a day after McCausland said that investigators believe the three adults who were in the home the night before Ayla was reported missing are withholding information that could help investigators find her.

    McCausland also said Saturday that state police took several hundred pieces of potential evidence from the home, including the blood, during a full-scale investigation in late December.

    Also Saturday, Ayla’s mother, Trista Reynolds of South Portland, attended a vigil for the toddler in Castonguay Square in Waterville. Reynolds and DiPietro, who do not have a relationship and have not appeared publicly together since their daughter disappeared, talked at length privately at the event.

    Crime scene investigators used a chemical called Luminol to detect blood that can't otherwise be seen*, according to McCausland. Investigators, who disclosed the existence of the blood Saturday, won't say how much of it was found in the residence, or exactly where.

    *emphasis mine. This meands the blood had been cleaned/wiped up;
    [/QUOTE]


    Not necessarily. It could be blood not otherwise seen for other reasons such as the amount being too small or because the bloodstain blended into the background. Dark brown carpet as an example or something with a pattern might not obviously show up a stain.

    Every person that was in that house that night is a vile, worthless piece of shit. I'm sorry, but I'm guessing at least one more person knew what happened to that baby. These people sicken me. I don't understand. The mother wanted the kid. If she was an inconvenience to you and your new piece, send her back to mom. FFS.

    i think the dad didn't want the mom to have her (who knows if he actually DID want her). i thought this all came about pretty quickly after the start of a custody battle.

    Yeah the Mom went to rehab, the Dad got temporary custody and then the Mom filed for permanent custody days before the kid disappeared. The Dad had not been involved with the baby much before taking custody (he didn't even know that a fling with Trista Reynolds has resulted in a pregnancy until the baby was 7 months old).

    Trista Reynolds, mother of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds, and her family, released an online statement Sunday on Facebook addressing events leading up to Ayla's disappearance. The Reynolds family provided information on Ayla's custodial arrangements prior to the girl's disappearance. The account questions whether a child protective services supervisor acted outside of her authority in transferring the little girl to her father Justin DiPietro.

    According to the statement, Maine's Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) took action after Trista Reynolds, under the influence of alcohol, had an altercation with her sister Jessica Reynolds Oct. 12, resulting in a police visit. Trista Reynolds says the next day a DHHS official told her to "kick the alcohol or lose the kids," and she entered into substance abuse treatment, starting that day.


    DHHS allowed Trista Reynolds' mother Becca Hanson and sister Jessica to care for Ayla at Jessica's apartment during Trista's treatment, the statement said. But on Oct. 17, a DHHS caseworker and CPS supervisor contacted Jessica and told her to give Ayla to Justin DiPietro. The reason given, according to the Reynolds, included the statement "dad trumps the aunt - any day."
    That same day, Lewiston police removed a kicking and screaming Ayla from the Reynolds apartment, the report said, and brought her to DiPietro who was waiting downstairs.

    Agreement Reached and Breached
    At a family team meeting held Oct. 20 that included Trista, Justin, Jessica and her attorney, two doctors, two DHHS case workers and the CPS supervisor, an agreement was reached, the Reynolds say. Justin would bring Ayla to visit Trista at the treatment facility on Oct. 21, and on Oct. 22 he would release her into Trista's care at Jessica's apartment. If Justin failed to comply, the CPS supervisor reportedly said "there would be consequences."
    Trista and her family say Justin did not comply with either requirement. She says she was "stonewalled" by DHHS. Finally, she agreed that Justin could care for Ayla if she and her daughter had regular visits.

    Filing for Parental Rights and Responsibilities
    Trista filed a petition with Cumberland County Court seeking a declaration of parental rights and responsibilities Dec. 15 at noon. This account is consistent with what various media including ABC News reported last month. The reasons Reynolds gave for her court filing included infrequent visitation, lack of communication with Justin, and Ayla's injuries while under Justin's care. In January, DiPietro told the Morning Sentinel that Ayla suffered a broken arm when he fell on top of her while carrying her and groceries up steps. Trista alleges that Ayla suffered facial bruises in mid-September when Justin took her on a day visit to Chuck E. Cheese, and also returned home from an overnight visit with Justin with a pulled muscle in late September.
    The statement says Trista, her mother and brother last saw Ayla on November 21 when Trista accompanied Justin and Ayla to a bone specialist.
