Hunting season brings hope in Ayla Reynolds case

WATERVILLE (AP) — The start of hunting season has some hopeful that hunters walking through Maine woods will find signs of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds.

Ayla Reynolds

The little girl was reported missing from her father's house in December 2011. Police believe she's dead.

But followers of a website devoted to finding answers about her disappearance, including some who hope she's alive, say hunters could help.

John Pomerleau, administrator of the United for Ayla website, told the Kennebuc Journal that he and others will try to catch hunters' attention by distributing posters about Ayla at locations including gun clubs and hunter licensing offices.

He said they'll also post them at game weigh-in stations and breakfast diners.

A Department of Public Safety spokesman said there are no new developments in the case, but the investigation remains active.
