Will Ayla Reynolds ever be found? With it being five years since she was seen, it's hard to imagine that there will ever be an end in this case. Nonetheless, the missing baby's mother continues to hold onto hope that justice will be served, and answers will be found. The Portland Press Herald reports that Trista Reynolds is asking for anyone with information to come forward and help bring an end to this ongoing nightmare. Will her pleas be heard, or will the last people to see baby Ayla continue to keep silent about what actually happened to her?

On Dec. 17, 2011, Ayla Reynolds was reported missing from her paternal grandmother's home in Waterville, Maine. At the time, police were told that Ayla was possibly kidnapped by an unknown intruder who had gained entrance in the home while the adults inside slept. However, it was quickly revealed by police that there were no signs of a break-in at the residence where the 20-month-old baby was last seen. 

Over the course of the past five years, it's been implied by detectives -- and forensic evidence -- that nobody kidnapped Ayla at all. In fact, evidence was found in the basement of her paternal grandmother's home, which indicated that Ayla may have suffered a tremendous injury. This goes hand-in-hand with the fact that the child had a broken arm not long before she vanished. To the dismay of those watching this case, it was also revealed that her father, Justin DiPietro, failed to take her to a scheduled checkup the Friday prior to her reported disappearance.

Trista Reynolds -- the mother of missing baby Ayla Reynolds -- believes that Justin DiPietro knows what happened to their daughter. She believes that he, his former girlfriend, his sister and his mother are all keeping information from detectives that could be used to locate Ayla, or at least bring answers to the questions that surround her case.

Justin DiPietro -- along with the other adults who were known to last be around Ayla -- remains tight-lipped about the circumstances surrounding her disappearance. They've continued to stick to their initial abduction story, even in the face of evidence that seems to completely discredit it. Meanwhile, Ayla Reynolds remains missing -- and with each year that passes it becomes harder and harder to envision any kind of conclusion to her case.
An Amber Alert has been issued for a teenage girl, whom authorities believe was abducted from a Walgreens store in Beckley, West Virginia. WCHSTV News reports that 16-year-old Jaddah Lashay Rodgers is believed to be in "extreme danger."

Police say the 16-year-old girl was presumably abducted at around 6:00 p.m., Wednesday night. The young girl is described as a black female, standing at around 5'4", and around 115 lbs. She has long black hair and brown eyes. When she was last seen on Wednesday evening, she was wearing a pair of denim jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt. Her hair was reportedly braided.

Police believe that the 15-year-old girl could be in the company of a 20-year-old man. Lawrence Asbury is described as a white male, who is possibly driving a 1995 two-door Chevy Blazer, red, with West Virginia plates reading 522359. If you see this vehicle, please do not hesitate to call 911.

No photos are available of Jaddah or Lawrence at this time.
Authorities in Mason City, Iowa are looking for 15-year-old Angel Marie Herman. The teenager was reportedly last seen on Christmas day, but has not been in contact with her loved ones since then. There are some disturbing elements in this developing case, and authorities are seeking help from social media -- and the public -- in gathering information behind what may have happened to this missing teenager.
Authorities in Carbon County, Pennsylvania are looking for 26-year-old Felicia Bachman. The missing woman has not been in contact with her loved ones since Between Dec. 2nd and Dec. 4th, but she has since fallen completely out of contact.

Felicia's loved ones say that it is absolutely out of character for her to go missing like this. She was reportedly dedicated to her pets, but they were reportedly left without food and water over the course of the time that led to her being reported as missing. Her loved ones say that she would have never done this, which has them wondering if something horrible may have happened to her. Felicia Bachman left behind all of her belongings, including her only two pairs of shoes, her cellphone and her purse (which included her money and identification).

If you know anything about the disappearance of this young woman, please do not hesitate to contact the authorities in Carbon County, Pennsylvania at (570) 645-7429.

Unfortunately, there is only one available photograph of this missing woman and it does not show her apparent natural state. Hopefully the loved ones of Felicia Bachman release more photos, so as to aid in the search for her.
