WATERVILLE — A pile of stuffed animals, toys and keepsakes placed in front the Waterville, Maine, house where 20-month-old Ayla Reynolds went missing has been removed.

The makeshift shrine outside the home of Ayla’s father, Justin DiPietro, emerged in the days after she was reporting missing from the home on Dec. 17. It remained in place as of Friday when an Associated Press reporter visited the house, but WABI-TV reported Tuesday that it had been removed.

Charles Rumsey, deputy police chief in Waterville, told WABI-TV that no one called the police department regarding the removal of the items. DiPietro didn’t return a call seeking comment.

A $30,000 reward for information leading to the missing toddler went unclaimed as the reward expired last weekend. Police are continuing their investigation.
