Grandmother says family had nothing to do with toddler's disappearance

The grandmother of a missing Maine toddler says no family members in the home the night the girl vanished had anything to do with her disappearance.
"I feel violated. Somebody came into my home and took my granddaughter who was sleeping," Phoebe DiPietro said during her first television interview about Ayla Reynolds, the now 21-month-old toddler.
Ayla disappeared December 17. Police have said they believe foul play was involved. They also say the DiPietros have fully co-operated in the investigation.

    Well, it has all been good fun and games.
    No hard feelings anywhere, I hope.
    I'm going to bed early: tired, worked a lot, and will again tomorrow, starting before the sun is up.
    Gute Nacht.

    Mommy? Uncle Ray touched me again. "Dang you Philip! You keep saying the same thing over and over again. Now shut up".

      And here is the disturbing pattern again. This is not about you, young man.

      I hope this little girl is found safe and sound. Sadly, I think not, though.
