WESTBROOK, Maine (AP) — The mother of a missing Maine toddler says she's going to release more information she's been told by investigators in hopes of calling attention to the case and bringing it to a resolution.

Trista Reynolds said Tuesday she believes that releasing investigatory details may be the only way to bring about justice for her daughter Ayla, who disappeared from her father's home in Waterville in December 2011.

Reynolds has talked about additional blood evidence. Next week, she plans to release more details that she said she was told by investigators.

Investigators aren't commenting on the details.

Bob Lowery from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children says what the grieving mother is doing is unusual but he doesn't fault her for doing what she thinks is right.
