7:31 am
>> her funeral is being held today. also ahead, how did this woman lose more than 500 pounds? she's here with the story of her astounding transformation. >> big, big change. we begin with the latest on baby ayla. new questions about her father. linsey davis here to start us out. >> reporter: good morning, george. police are calling this the most intense investigation led by maine police in the last decade. they're saying they believe the adults in the house the night baby ayla disappeared know more than what they're saying. police with dismissing the basic premise suggested all along, that his little girl was abducted. >> we have searched that home. we have found not one piece of evidence that leads us to believe ayla was abducted. >> reporter: police reveal that evidence includes ayla's blood.
7:32 am
investigators found it in her father's basement. ayla's mother says police told her it was more than a small cut would produce. >> there was blood found. it wasn't just -- you know, a small amount. i don't want it to be real. >> reporter: and we know more about who was inside the house six week ago when the then 20-month-old went missing. dipietro, his girlfriend, and her small child where there. ayla was in an adjacent bedroom by herself from dipietro's sister. >> they say they think someone came in the house, went into a bedroom that ayla doesn't normally sleep in, took her and vanished into the night and not one of them heard anything. it doesn't pass the straight-face test.
7:33 am
>> i'm not here to answer questions. i'm just here to show my support for the community that is supporting ayla. >> reporter: police say he's been answering all of their questions. they say someone is not telling the whole truth. >> we think one or all three of those adults have information they haven't told us. we need that information in order to find ayla. >> reporter: police have not named dipietro a suspect or a person of interest. they say they've ruled no one out and no one in. they say they are no closer to solving this case now than they were on the morning of december 17th, the morning that ayla was reported missing. >> let's bring in dan abrams and nancy grace. and nancy, let me begin with you and pick up right where linsey went off. seems like the police don't believe the story they're being told.
7:34 am
>> yes, you're right. and i spoke with the maine state police at length last night. many stunning developments have emerged in the last 24 hours. i've learned from cnn and hln going inside the home that where the blood was found, george, is the basement. but in effect, the entire basement is the father's bedroom. so, her blood, ayla's blood is found in his bedroom. not only that, accords to reports that were corrected this morning, there was apparently a cleanup of sorts. some of the blood was visible to the make then eye. some of the blood was only visible for the use of csi technique luminol, that apparently shows wiping of the blood. that's not good. they told me point blank, she didn't wander out of the home and there was no kidnapping.
7:35 am
that points the finger at one of the three adults. >> it sure does. so dan, why not maim one of them a person of interest? >> you don't need to. the bottom line is to name a person is to put the heat on them. they're doing that any way, by coming out publicly saying what nancy just laid out. they don't believe the story. they don't believe there was a kidnapping. why are they making the public pro clam magss? why? to put heat on the father. they're not releasing the 911 call. why? florida is a really open state when it comes to releasing things like 911 calls and investigations. why? because they believe that something was said on that 911 call. there's some detail on that 911 call that is important for the investigation. >> hey, dan, there's something else. what do you think of this? you know, dan, once you go to trial or start interviewing the witnesses, you may find out additional facts than what they told you when you started,
7:36 am
depending on if you ask the right questions. but the stories shouldn't change fund mentally. i found four different versions of what happened last night in the reporters were correct. first of all, two infants in the room together. one was daddy was asleep with ayla in the bed with him. the grandmother was there. now it's the daddy, the girlfriend, the sister, three children no grandmother, ayla is off sleeping by here's. the story keeps changing as to how she was found missing. >> explain something to me. what is the mother of that child doing hanging out with a father of that child at the vigil? if all this suspicion is pointing at him, why is she publicing m coing out next to him? though she's posed all sorts of questions about him to this
7:37 am
point? >> she's been attacked mercilessly by the press because she was this rehab. i don't see that a problem. she was 50, 60 miles away the night ayla goes missing. you're right. i don't want to incite vigilante justice. i would have had to take a swing at him, simply for not coming clean with police. they were all snugged up at the individual. he's like, i'm here, wearing the t-shirt. another thing happened that hit a nerve with me. that is the police showed him the crime scene photos of the blood evidence and the luminol findings. he got up and ran out of the the police station. you may all scream, there's no playbook for sorrow. i think that is downright weird. i think a joury would agree. >> do you believe that the police are no closer than they were when this happened?
7:38 am
>> no. i think they're no closer to figuring out which of the three people in the house know more than they're disclosing. one of the questions that could be asked, what else could possibly have happened? it's possible season in the house knows. could she be being held somewhere? they have to leave every possibility open despite the fact that it sounds like a superlong shot. >> thanks, guys. time for the weather and sam. we're going to start with pictures out of new york. fulton, new york. they have had snow and plenty of snow. the lake-effect snow is blowing. every time a cold air system drops in, it pumps the snow. in some cases, 4 inches of snow in an hour. the audience, the twitter audience likes june-uary.

8:24 am
and we saw a lot about doing it naturally. there's just a lot of options for women out there. but this seemed like the best thing for our family and for -- for me and judah. and then asher. so we decided to try to fight for that, because we wanted to lower my chances of getting a c-section and apparently if you don't get induced and don't get the epidural, your chances decrease significantly for getting a c manufacture section. we wanted to try to avoid any unnecessary procedures. there's a lot of times they are necessary. i would never tell a woman not to do what is nez for her family. for our family, we decided to try to stick with that and fight for it for us and our boys. >> josh, any a point where you said, please, let's just try something else? >> she -- she had it under control. i -- i remember i did tell her,
8:25 am
you know, just look in my eyes to relax during the contractions with judah. she looked in my eyes and i started bawling. and i said, don't look in my eyes anymore. i said, look away. she did it. >> boy, asher is sleeping so peacefully. how much does he weigh now? >> i don't know. we have our appointment this week. i don't think he's lost any. he's a good eater. >> you skipped over the newborn diapers. >> he did, yes. stocking up on the bigger ones. >> how is judah taking to it all? she se he seems happy this morning? >> he loves asher. he will go and try to snuggle with him. sometimes it's let me clobber you. but he does mean well. it's cute to see them. >> where is asher? >> where's your brother?

>>. >> there he is. >> you've already lost all the baby weight. >> apparently when your babies are so big, you don't get to keep it. >> well, we're so happy to meet your whole family this morning. asher and judah look great. thank you for sharing your story with us today. >> thank you. >> we'll be back with katie couric.
