19 Apr


It’s been 5 years today since Justin has spoken out for Ayla. It was here at New Beginnings Church of God that Lance arranged a vigil for Ayla. You might remember that media cameras weren’t allowed. A local reporter was able to go in on the condition he didn’t ask the DiPietros any questions. Community members who attended the vigil claimed that it seemed like a funeral service.

What did he say? What were the last words he shared with the public about his missing toddler daughter? After four months with no sightings of Ayla, who he claimed had been abducted from his home, what was the first thing he had to say?

“In the past four months and two days, this has kind of gotten off track,” he said. “It’s been about me, or it’s been about (Ayla’s mother) Trista (Reynolds), when it should have been about Ayla.”

So what had he been doing during those last four months?

DiPietro said he has been working with website This Little Light of Maine to raise awareness for his missing daughter.

“We now have 62 billboards that are up across the country. They’re in Washington, Oregon, California, Missouri, Mississippi, Georgia, Ohio and there’s still more to come,” he said.

Was he concerned with what Ayla could be going through? If she was healthy? If she was being fed? If she was scared? What words did he leave the nation with?

He said efforts to find Ayla should be positive.

“That’s about all we can do right now, is stay positive,” he said. “Every day doesn’t get any easier for me. Just please, please keep your eyes open and don’t stop, and we will get her home.”

After five years maybe Justin will have something more to say. As far as I’m concerned, he doesn’t need to say anything to us. Just tell law enforcement where Ayla is.

Justin, these were your words on 3/31/12.

 “I wanted to be there for her, because she deserved for me to be.” 

Be there for her now Justin. She deserves it. Get your daughter home. It’s not about you anymore. It’s about Ayla.

    I wish all the people would be reinterviewed. By LE and reporters.
    What do Dereck and Heidi think now? I want it on the record, like they were when Justin was living at the Tudelas home.
    What does State Farm have to say?
    Where is Courtney now?

    So many people could be the answer for finding the truth. Saying nothing seems so low.

    Thanks mama for reminding us who really cares about Ayla.

    Nothing changes. Courtney remains a piece of ????, Justin and crew are still tight-lipped. Where is Ayla and why aren’t the DiPietro’s more persistant?

      Sheesh! Such a lot of worry etc. over the lack of DiPietro and Roberts activism, or even speech, on little Ayla’s behalf!
      This tribe of concerned caretakers, including Derek and family, are merely following their initial logical-reasoning response to Ayla’s “disappearance”: Ayla is in good hands with a loving criminal pervert or with a low class, Reynolds operative.
      In either scenario, the DiPietro tribe let it be known that were sure that Ayla would probably one day make an appearance at the old DiPietro homestead. Maybe when she got good and bored with her either tortuous or mundane surroundings.
      Longing for the lively, stimulating environment of Phoebe’s bloody, dank basement,
      one day (the DiPietro clan wants us to believe) Ayla will come home sending
      the DiPietro rabble into exhilarating jubilation at her surprise return. “Hmm, everybody look who’s finally home…old what’s her name.”

      It’s our fault “out here”, in any case. We simply failed at our Justin-Phoebe assigned task to “look for her, because she’s alive somewhere (yawn) out there.”
      Ever count the number of times they used her name. Very little.
      They couldn’t even act the parts of the anxious, worried and actively engaged relatives of a missing child.
      No need. Ayla was not missing—-she was just not there.

    How they can continue to be silent is beyond me! Anyone who knows any little shred of evidence should be tortured by their conscience for not coming forward. I wish them no peace.

    I do remember Ayla and that she is missing every day.

    Also, I literally try to go through in my mind how come some people can hide a very little girl and then just move on with their own lives. It is a thinking process I go through repeatedly. I get to the point where I accept this is really how some people roll. And then I forget this because I could not ever do this and know most others cannot either. And then after a while, I have to start all again, asking myself again, how can people harm and hide their own children.

    Another also, I cannot understand how Justine and Phoebe could ever treat Ayla’s mother the way they did. And to perpetually keep her daughter from her? Every damn day they make Trista and anyone who loves Ayla live with the fact she is missing and under what conditions is she being kept?

    Justin, what is the truth? Where is Ayla at? How do you keep going through your own days and nights and not talk??? Is it hell for you? You are Ayla’s father. Send a note. Do something!
    snipped from above:

    Justin, these were your words on 3/31/12.

    “I wanted to be there for her, because she deserved for me to be.”

    Be there for her now Justin. She deserves it. Get your daughter home. It’s not about you anymore. It’s about Ayla.

    Thank you for the post, MM.

    They are all cowards. Every one of them.

      I have not been able to stop thinking about the people involved in Ayla’s abuse and hiding her, all being cowards because I also believe that to be the truth. I would like to add that I believe (even though I have not personally spoken to any of these Dipietro’s plus) from what facts we do know, that they are all selfish cowards. So what will make any one of them tell the truth?

        Primarytchr and msp, they are cowards and have much to lose if investigators had the guts to charge them even with child neglect, which as even a minor accusation certainly could be proven. Just as with the McCanns, traces of blood in rooms from which the child was “abducted”‘ mean nothing, it seems.

          Anon, I agree with all ! And I had personally wished that legally something was done or action taken to get at the truth. I guess we are left with the hope that the decision to wait for the max on everyone pays off ‘more’ in the end.

          Recently CNN did a report on Madeleine missing for 10 years – 10 years. For some reason, I could not make myself watch it.

          That blood found in Ayla’s and Madeleine’s cases is what is left of them. The last voice they have to tell what happened to them! And it SPEAKS LOUDLY. It needs to be heard.

    We remember that service very clearly because we were there!
    What a shame that Justin never took responsibility for her. Everyone in that house was silent. …and still is. Very sad! I think they know what happened and her location!
