Search resumes for Maine toddler missing 3 monthsAided by dogs, volunteers renew search for missing Maine toddler but fail to turn up clues
WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) ' Searchers aided by dogs have failed to turn up any new clues as they renewed their search for a Maine toddler who's been missing for more than three months.
With the ground clear of snow, more than 100 volunteer searchers, firefighters and game wardens searched fields and woods in Waterville on Saturday for signs of Ayla Reynolds.
Ayla was 20 months old when her father reported her missing from his Waterville home on Dec. 17. Police are treating her disappearance as a crime, but no one has been charged.
Searchers found no signs of Ayla, but Public Safety Department spokesman Steve McCausland says they found the remains of 53-year-old Steven Brandon of Waterville, who was reported missing in 2004, along Messalonskee Stream. Foul play is not suspected in his death.
