I would like to commend the local and state police forces involved with Ayla Reynolds’ disappearance. They have joined forces with the FBI and have done well to keep confidential information confidential.

Many people want to know everything the police have learned, but if their knowledge can help determine answers and be used in any future court case, that information should not be shared with the general public.

The pressure on the police force can be overwhelming and take up too much of their time. Too many of the general public think they are entitled to know everything, but they aren’t. We will know the results when they are determined.

Many thanks to all the volunteers and game wardens and others involved with all the searches.
