Mom of missing Maine toddler: Sought sole custody
WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — The mother of a missing 20-month-old girl in Maine says she'd filed paperwork seeking sole custody of the toddler a day before her daughter went missing.
Trista Reynolds told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday that she and Ayla Reynold's father have been unable to get along in the last few weeks and parent together. She says she didn't tell the father, Justin DiPietro, that she'd filed the court paperwork Thursday.
Reynolds says she hasn't talked to DiPietro since Ayala went missing from her father's Waterville home since Friday night. She was last seen sleeping in her bed.
Police have said both DiPietro and Trista Reynolds have been cooperating with investigators. The two live apart, with DiPietro in Waterville and Reynolds in Portland.
