WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) -- Investigators say they've found blood inside the Maine home where a toddler was reported missing six weeks ago.
State police spokesman Steve McCausland says the blood was found in the basement early in the investigation into Ayla Reynolds' disappearance from her father's home in Waterville.
Her father, Justin DiPietro, says Ayla was not in her bed when he checked on her the morning of Dec. 17.
McCausland says the blood is troubling and police believe DiPietro and two other adults at DiPietro's home that morning "have not given us the full story."
The blood is being analyzed to determine whose it is, but McCausland doesn't know when the results would be available.
Ayla was 20 months old when she disappeared.
WCVB-TV in Boston first reported the discovery of the blood.
