WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) -- Two of the state's top homicide prosecutors have been called to the central Maine home of a missing 20-month-old girl as the search for the girl entered its sixth day.

Waterville Police Chief Joseph Massey says police are still treating Ayla Reynolds's disappearance as a missing child case.
 
He told reporters Thursday that the investigation is focused closely on the house and that crime-scene tape surrounding it and the presence of two homicide prosecutors are merely investigative tools. He said police are also using cadaver dogs in an area near the city's airport in the search.
 
Ayla was reported missing Saturday by her father, Justin DiPietro, who told police he last saw her when he put her to bed Friday night.
