Given the history of numerous searches that did not located human remains, I am starting to really lean towards Ayla walking out of the home on her own and to the lake or water area. They need to do another search. Too many times searches are done and bodies show up later. I was not aware of the thump sound...so I wonder if Ayla did walk out on her own and knock a rubbish barrel over or something that caused the dog to bark? Did any neighbors report something knocked over? I think the police need to look into that and I am 100% in favor of them doing ANOTHER search of that pond. If she walked into it and has passed away her parents, BOTH, need to know so all the finger pointing and hypothesis (of which even I am guilty of; as we all are due to the high emotions of wanting this child found and looking into every possible scenario.) can stop and this beautiful child can have a proper burial. This is the pond search and I have to tell you, they need to do it again. Was this pond drained completely? Seems if a canoe , it was not. If not, they need to go back. http://youtu.be/CVAAKF8-7dE
ETA: If there was a baby monitor, seems someone would have mentioned it by now, with everyone wondering why no one checked on the two babies.
Also, I could be wrong, but I thought the neighbor said they heards sounds of a car, or a car door, something like that. I do not believe it was Ayla crashing around the yard trying to make a run for it. JMO

Just my opinion, of course.
Re-reading these statements, I view everything pretty much as I have all along. I don't see evidence of a bunch of "lies" being told all along by TR. The inconsistences seem to arise from what reporters assumed and went with versus what was actually said. According to TR and statements attributed to JD, there was an agreement for JD to care for Ayla while TR was in rehab and recovering. and Health and Human Services was involved. There is nothing to indicate that TR failed to "turn over" the baby to JD anymore than there is anything to indicate that JD failed to pick up the baby at the time agreed upon. Either could be true, but it's only speculation.
In her interviews, TR's emotions seem genuine and centered on her concern for Ayla. JD's statments come across as defensive and detached. As for all the "accusatory" comments by TR and her family members, they don't accuse JD of directly harming Ayla as much as they say he wasn't watching after her properly and became defensive when questioned about the details of her injuries. In light of the disappearance, it's easy to understand how, after the fact, a more sinister interpretation of these injuries might be reached. TR's sister says these accidents were reported to protective services although she doesn't say when. No idea if what she says is true, but it would explain the anger that seems directed at Health and Human Services by TR's family. All MOO.
I disagree with TR and family not accusing JD of directly harming Ayla. Of course they were doing such! All the comments of bruises, sprained legs and couldn't walk for three weeks? They were insinuating child abuse. Reports to CPS? I really wonder what was behind that. If I felt my ex was harming my child he would not be the one to have him/her while I was away at rehab. So if one suspected child abuse...as stated...then why give child to dad? Makes no sense when she has a mom, a father and a sister in the picture. Just doesn't add up...and ok to give the youngest baby to the mom.
Why should LE provide add'l info? They're not obligated (in all states) to disclose what they have. Gotta trust they know what they're doing () because it will all come down to a Court of Law. I'm torn as to how much info should be made available -- look at FL debacle last summer! Polygraphs mean little to nothing in a Court of Law . . . I'm not sure how much stock LE places in polys when most are trained to read perps' behavior.
just my thoughts . . . praying Ayla is warm, loved & happy right now!

My point in the PD in putting more information out to the public would be to more or less give instructions to the public on HOW to help. They are not doing that in Maine. That needs to be done. They need to tell the public to look for this child. I am in full agreement they do not need to divulge their leads or thoughts...but somewhere in all this they need to actually ask the public straight-forward to look on their properties in the surrounding areas (in case she did escape) to look for anything unusual on their properties, to watch for "new babies" in their neighborhoods, for store clerks to take awareness of regular customers all of a sudden buying diapers or pull ups, to come forward with ANY leads of anyone who may have heard EITHER parent talk about "taking Ayla and leaving the state" ...etc. Just a bit more forward.
Didn't LE say they had uncovered evidence of "foul play"? Which to me would preclude Ayla wandering off and ending up in the river.
ETA but wondering if at least part of the evidence is to do with the window; either signs that it had been used or that it had made to look like it had been used?

Be careful what you ask for Mr Dipietro:
“Nancy Grace, please come see me. Do you want to spend a day with me? Do you want to see what I’m going through? Do you want to see the ins and outs of it? I invite you to.”

"I will publicly invite Nancy Grace to come spend a day with me,” DiPietro said Thursday afternoon during an exclusive interview with the Morning Sentinel. “Nancy Grace, please come see me. Do you want to spend a day with me? Do you want to see what I’m going through? Do you want to see the ins and outs of it? I invite you to.”
Justin DiPietro said his invitation is solely for Nancy Grace, not for her show’s producers.
JMO but what a "smart *$$" ...
But wouldn't that be just great if Nancy were to show up in Waterville Maine ...
Knock Knock :::
Justin opens door ...
Nancy Grace here ...
Justin runs to hide ...
Regarding the 4 line poem:
The Maine State Police got a warrant to find out who AJ was that posted the four line poem on the new Ayla website that her mom put up. That says to me that they are more than probably focused on an abductor, someone holding out and hiding Ayla...as opposed to a homicide or accidental death investigation. Do you know what I mean? If they felt she was a homicide, or that dad harmed her accidentally...they really wouldn't feel the need to tell the media that they obtained that warrant to find the person who posted that Ayla was "out of the state of Maine."
Yes, I think it would be great for Nancy Grace to show up at Justin's and interview him ...
BUT ... JMO, I think he will run like a "scared rat" ... I took his statement to be somewhat "snarky" ...
I mean Nancy Grace "is what she is" -- and I don't mean that in a bad way --
Nancy is "just Nancy" ...
She can be a real "hard *$$" when she wants to be ...
BUT I will give her credit where credit is due -- she does keep many of the missing person's cases out there !
JMO ... but I think it would be interesting for her to show up -- and give him the "3rd Degree" ...
The toddler had lived in Portland with her mother and grandmother until mid-October, said Becca Hanson, Ayla’s grandmother. The grandparents, who are not married and have separate addresses, said Maine’s Department of Health and Human Services had removed Ayla from her mother’s care in October. The maternal grandparents criticized the agency, although no details about the action were available Sunday.
Hanson was staying with Ayla’s mother, Trista Reynolds, in a South Portland motel Sunday as the search continued in Waterville.
