"Some items were recovered from the Kennebec River yesterday," Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland told The Morning Sentinel. "The items have been taken to the state police crime laboratory for analysis."

Alya was 20-months when she was reported missing from her father's Waterville home on Dec. 17, 2011.

"At this point, we have no idea if it is in any way connected with the ongoing investigation; but our lab technicians will look at those items, as they have for all other items police have gathered since December," McCausland said.

Police believe foul play was involved the disappearance and say the three adults who saw Ayla last - father Justin DiPietro, his girlfriend, Courtney Roberts, and sister Elisha DiPietro - aren't forthcoming with information.
