N.H. Attorney General takes over case of Krista Dittmeyer, missing Maine mom

According to CBS affiliate WBZ, there is nothing to indicate that Dittmeyer left behind her car and child, who was found in the car, by choice. "There is nothing we've uncovered to indicate that she voluntarily absented herself from the vehicle or the child," Perley told the station. "People have asked about suicide or mental illness, but there's nothing to indicate either of those things." Anyone with information is asked to call the Conway police at 603-356-5715.

Earlier today, police blocked access to and searched a pond a quarter mile from where Dittmeyer's car was found idling with its hazard lights blinking at 6:30 a.m. Saturday at the Cranmore Mountain ski area. Her 14-month-old daughter was found unharmed inside the car.

Assistant Attorney General Jane Young, who is in charge of the investigation, did not immediately return calls for comment.

Young is one of the office's homicide prosecutors.

According to CBS affiliate WBZ, police say Dittmeyer, who lives and works in Portland and has ties to Bridgton, Maine, last talked to family members at about 8 p.m. Friday by phone.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Conway police at 603-356-5715.
