PORTLAND, Maine—A day after police declared a 20-month-old Maine girl's disappearance a crime, her grandfather is pleading for her safe return.

Ronald Reynolds is the grandfather of Ayla Reynolds. He says that he's "begging and pleading" for the return of Ayla, and anyone who can help should call the state police. He was wearing a green ribbon, the symbol for missing children.

Saturday marks two weeks since Ayla's father reported her missing from his home in Waterville. Justin DiPietro has told police he saw her the night before when he put her to bed.

Investigators said Friday that they believe foul play was involved but tried to remain optimistic. State and Waterville police continue to investigate.
