Search for Maine toddler refocuses on her houseSearch at home of missing Maine toddler's home intensifies as effort moves toward first week
WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) ' The search for a 20-month-old Maine girl advanced toward its first full week as police intensified their focus on the house where Ayla Reynolds was living, while continuing to look through fields and waterways and running down leads.
Investigators put crime-scene tape around Ayla's house in a Waterville neighborhood, called two of the state's top homicide prosecutors to the site Thursday and brought a state police support van to the scene.
But Waterville Police Chief Joseph Massey says people shouldn't read too much into those developments and insists that the toddler's disappearance remains a missing child case.
Scores of public service workers and volunteers have been involved in the citywide search.
Ayla was last seen last Saturday, when her father reported her missing from the bed where she was sleeping.
