PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The clock is ticking on some of the charges the mother of missing Maine toddler Ayla Reynolds wants brought in her case.
The statute of limitations on lesser charges like child endangerment expires in a matter of weeks, on the third anniversary of Ayla's disappearance.
Ayla was 20 months old when she was reported missing by her father on Dec. 17, 2011, in Waterville.
Police say the father and others know more than what they're telling investigators. He couldn't be reached for comment.
Ayla's mother Trista Reynolds says homicide charges should be filed. She says she remains such a case will be brought but says she doesn't see it happening "anytime soon."
