First off, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has taken time out for Ayla. I ditto what J4A said in her Good Samaritan post yesterday. I also wanted to personally thank J4A for starting this blog out of the goodness of her heart. She is one of many who have sacrificed their personal time and devoted it to keeping Ayla’s name and face in the public eye. So to J4A and every other person who has done something for Ayla, thank you!
There have been a lot of people who have wondered about Courtney Roberts and her history. There will be no big revelations in this post. I have put together what most people already know, so let’s dig in.
Courtney Lee Roberts was born in September or October of 1987, she is 24 years old. She was born to Gaenslie “Gessie” Lamour and Eugene Roberts. She has three sisters; Joanna Lamour Jordan 30, Natalie Roberts-Reisinger 25, and Brianna Roberts 23. I am not sure on this fact but I believe Joanna is only a half sister, having a different father and Courtney, Natalie and Brianna all share the same father, Eugene. Gessie and Eugene were not married until July 27, 1996, when Courtney was 9 years old and they divorced four years later on October 27, 2001, with Gessie getting custody of the minor children .
Courtney attended Deering High School in Portland, ME and graduated in 2006. From there she went to college at the University of Southern Maine from 2006-2007. She then transferred to Curry College in Milton, MA in 2007. I believe all of her school years she ran cross country. I know for a fact that she did at Curry College.
While attending Curry College, one of her friends posted on MySpace several times about smoking a blunt:

While at Curry College her major was nursing. In 2009, Courtney found out she was pregnant by her boyfriend, he proposed. When she was 3 months pregnant she found out her boyfriend was cheating on her and they broke up. Upon breaking up her boyfriend asked her to get an abortion which she refused since she had one before and she did not want to go through with that again. She also found out that her now ex-boyfriend got another girl pregnant. Courtney decided that she would finish out her semester and head back to Maine to be closer to family. She also decided to change her major so she could finish school sooner, I am unsure of what she changed her major to.
Well I am but I'm not lol. I'm taking a couple classes to raise my gpa so I have a better chance of getting into a masters program. So I'm just gonna walk in may. Congrats girly

Courtney developed some harsh feelings for men after her baby’s dad cheated on her. She stated that she felt deceived and felt like it was going to be hard for her to love and trust someone again. She even went so far as to post “I HATE MEN!” She also stated that she was sad that her baby would grow up without a father. Her whole pregnancy the baby’s dad never showed interest.
Her son, Ayden, was born in August of 2009. As of 4/16/2010, she was still unattached and wondered if she would ever find a guy that loves her. I couldn’t tell you exactly when Courtney met Justin. Justin moved to Portland in 2006 and Courtney did not leave for college in MA until 2007, so it is possible they met then as he lived across the street from her apartment on Pine St. in Portland, ME. While it has been stated that Courtney had an on/off relationship with Justin for 5 years, I find this unfounded. In my research I have only found that she had been dating him since as early as mid-2010.
It has been stated that the Lamour’s, Courtney’s mother’s family, owns real estate and owned the apartment Justin and his roommates lived in. The Lamour family is a big family. If I could piece together how everyone is related in that family I would but that would take too long. I will just state that there are quite a few Lamour‘s with criminal histories.
Courtney’s oldest sister Joanna is married to Casey Jordan. I am not sure if they are still married and could not find any information on him. She has two children.
Courtney’s sister Natalie is married to a guy named Shane Reisinger, who is a rapper. They have a child. The thing I found interesting here is that Trista is MySpace friends with Natalie’s husband, on his personal MySpace account. Did Courtney and Trista run in the same circles? Is it possible while they did not know each other, they knew of each other even before Justin came into the picture? Could there have been jealousy of Trista once Courtney learned that Justin fathered her baby?
We all know Courtney’s youngest sister Brianna was arrested by MDEA for possesion of Oxy and cocaine on January 9, 2012. Then was rearrested by FDEA on the same charges two weeks later. Courtney was living in the apartment where the drugs were found and neighbors reported suspicious activity and lots of people coming and going. Was Courtney involved with the selling of the drugs? Were her and Justin in on it? Since Brianna has no husband or kids would she take sole responsibility of the drugs to save her sister from losing her son? It was said that Brianna was bailed out by friends that pooled their money together. Why her friends? Why not her family?
According to Angela Harry, Courtney was a hard-working, single mother who also went to college. She spent her spare time with her son and Justin. She does so much and never takes a break for herself. I couldn’t tell you if any of that is true nor could I speculate on her personality nor if she is a good mother or not.
Although we have not had a public statement from Courtney she does take the time to post on the private TTLOM Facebook page. I received an email with the following comments from her posted on that private page:
Courtney Roberts I will run to the moon for the people I love.
Courtney Roberts No words can express how I feel! Ayla ♥ ♥
Courtney Roberts Hi ayla. We miss you, I know we will see your face soon. Love you
Courtney Roberts At some point in life we sometimes lose our Faith but that's all we have to hold on to. Ayla♥
Courtney Roberts > This Little Light of Maine I just hope that you see her face everywhere and you know that we won't give up, there is no such thing in our mind when it comes to ayla. You can try to find a way out but I think we all know your only way out is to bring ayla to a safe place. I hope you see in those pretty blue eyes that she is longing for a familiar face, her family. I have no doubt in my mind that we will see her again, she deserves the best and most honest life possible. I will continue to pray for ayla and for whoever has her to do what's right and bring her back home. I have always and continued to see you as a daughter to me, and a brother to ay. Love you so
So there it is, all I could find on Courtney Roberts. In my opinion, I don’t think she would have readily involved herself in Ayla’s disappearance unless she knew or did something. We think there is something strange about Justin hardly ever talking for Ayla, what about Courtney, who we have not seen in the media at all? She did, after all, state she sees Ayla as a daughter.
