Ayla Reynolds' Mother Calls For Arrests In Missing Girl Case; Continues To Release New Evidence

When the mother of missing Maine toddler Ayla Reynolds was shown the last spot her daughter was seen, she saw blood.

There was blood on a doll in Ayla's bedroom. There was blood on the living room sofa. There was blood in the basement where Ayla's father, Justin DiPietro, slept, on the floor, walls, mattress and sheets. There was blood on the tongue of DiPietro's sneakers, and even blood on Ayla's car seat in DiPietro's car.

Ayla's mother, Trista Reynolds, continues to release bloody details about her daughter's disappearance in late 2011 as she tries to get DiPietro arrested, according to CNN. She says police wanted her to keep the investigation confidential, but wanted DiPietro -- as well as his girlfriend and sister -- to "be prosecuted for it."

"All three of those people were in that house that night ... all three of them know what happened to Ayla," she told CNN.

It's unclear how much weight her alleged evidence holds in the ongoing investigation. An online petition urges Maine Attorney General Janet Mills to arrest the trio, but the state has other ideas.

"To allow this type of pressure to influence either the investigation or prosecution undermines the integrity of the investigation or any prosecutor's decision in the future," Deputy Attorney General William Stokes said. "It simply cannot happen."

Trista has been outspoken about the blood for more than a year, but never in such gory detail. In April of 2012, she said that "more than a cupful" of blood was found on the scene.

Despite conceding that Ayla is likely dead, police continue what has amounted to the biggest missing child investigation in the state's history.
