Laura Recovery Center to Assist Family in Search for Ayla Reynolds. Friendswood, TX, January 10, 2012 -

The Laura Recovery Center for missing children is assisting the father of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds. Ayla was abducted from her bedroom in Watersville, ME on December 16, 2011. The Center was contacted by Ayla's father to help find Ayla and to increase public awareness of her disappearance, said Dawn Davis, Sr. Case Manager for the Laura Recovery Center. We realize that distributing Ayla's photograph is one of the most effective tools to help bring her home. It takes only one person to recognize her photo and make that call.

Davis said this is not the first case they have assisted on where the child disappeared from their bedroom. The public doesn't want to believe that children can be taken from the safety of their home, but it does happen. Certainly it's a rare situation and I'm glad for that because it is truly what nightmares are made of.

Ayla Reynolds
Danielle van Dam was only seven years old when she disappeared from her home in California in 2002. The community really rallied to help find Danielle. The LRC, along with community volunteers, organized ground searches, worked with the media, distributed her photograph and did public awareness events aimed at finding any information that would bring her home, said Davis. Danielle's remains were found by those same volunteer searchers. It was definitely not the outcome we wanted but it brought some resolution and the community is a tremendous resource for law enforcement, concluded Davis.

The Laura Recovery Center is asking that volunteers throughout the United States and even Canada help post and distribute Ayla's photograph. Ayla's flyer is posted on the Laura Recovery Center website at www.LRCF.org and can be downloaded, printed, e-mailed or faxed directly from that website. Other activities planned to raise awareness include distributing t-shirts and buttons, as well as asking pizza businesses to put her flyer on each of the boxes they deliver. Look at Ayla's photo. Ask yourself if you've seen her. Be aware of those around you. Has someone in your neighborhood brought a child home that looks like her or cannot be explained? You may hold that one piece of information that can help answer the question, where is Ayla? encouraged Davis.

The Laura Recovery Center (LRC) is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization that was founded in memory of Laura Smither. The Center focuses on Education, Search, and Prevention in the area of missing children. The LRC has offered free abduction prevention programs to over 240,000 children throughout the greater Houston area, worked with over 1500 families with missing loved ones, and has organized over 100 community searches for abducted children nationwide.
