N.H. cops search pond near where missing mom Krista Dittmeyer's car was found

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.

The pond is located about 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.

According to local station WMUR, police blocked media access to the scene at around 9:30 a.m. today.

Three federal agents from the New Hampshire bureau joined the investigation Tuesday afternoon, according to Conway Police Lt. Chris Perley. A total of four agencies are now working on the disappearance.

Perley has declined to comment on reports of blood being found in the car. He explained that Carroll County Sheriff Christopher Conley, who released that information to The New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper, is not involved in the case.

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.
