Frustration. I think everyone who keeps up with Ayla’s disappearance has been feeling this lately. It has been 116 days since Ayla went missing from her father’s Waterville home on December 17, 2011. We have not garnered much new information since the first few weeks of the investigation. Investigators are being tight-lipped but have said they are continuing to process evidence and follow up on leads.
We are a nation that expects immediate results and going on 4 months without Ayla being found nor arrests being made, makes it seem like we may never have the answers of what happened to Ayla. So we speculate. In this quest to find answers about what happened to Ayla, we have chosen sides, Justin is guilty or Trista is guilty. I don’t necessarily think any of us have forgotten Ayla is the most important person but have picked a side because it is a natural thing to do. People have been choosing sides since the dawn of time.
It’s okay to choose sides. Having different opinions on what happened to Ayla is a good thing for her. It opens our eyes to many different possibilities and lets us explore every avenue to bring her home. So share the reasons you think Justin is guilty or share the reasons you think Trista is guilty, but don’t say so and so is guilty because so and so is a dirty, *#?&#$, *%#@$. That helps no one. We can have different opinions and have a rational discussion.
If you have an idea you want us to explore leave us a comment or send an email, JMH also stated this in her post, we will do our best to address it. If you have a tip that can help investigators find Ayla please contact them at (207) 624-7076.
Remember, no matter whose side we have chosen, the most important person is Ayla. We need to hold onto hope. My first and foremost hope is that Ayla is found alive and well. Hope that a family gets to see their sweet baby again, hope that a father would not harm his child. I also hold onto hope that if Ayla is not found alive, whoever is responsible is held accountable. I have an all-encompassing hope for Ayla that will not end. Please hold on to your hope for Ayla.
