WATERVILLE, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Businesses and individuals in the Waterville area are offering the largest reward offer for a missing person in the history of the State of Maine.
On Monday, Waterville Lawyer John Nale announced a $30,000 reward for any information that leads to the return of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds.
Nale is a lifelong resident of the town and says this case has deeply affected people in the community and they just want to see her home safe.
Ayla's father, Justin Dipietro, reported the toddler missing on December 17th.
At a news conference Monday, police say they are confident that Ayla did not leave the home on her own. They believe she was taken by a person. They are still investigating the matter as a "missing person" case and not as a criminal investigation.
Waterville police say they are using every resource available to them with the same intensity today as on Day One.
Ayla's disappearance was featured on America's Most Wanted on Friday night, that generated several new leads.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Waterville Police Department: 207-680-4700
