CONWAY, N.H. (NEWS CENTER) -- A New Hampshire police investigator searching for a missing 20-year-old Maine woman says there's nothing to suggest she's not alive and that police are working to reunite her with her family.

According the the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department, 26 year-old Kyle Acker of Portland is serving an eighteen month prison sentence. He was convicted in July of last year for trafficking cocaine and marijuana. Acker's last known address is the same as Dittmeyer's.

Conway Police Lt. Chris Perley has said the father of Dittmeyer's baby was not in the area at the time of her disappearance, but would not comment further.

Police have said they believe Krista Dittmeyer, who was last seen Friday, was the victim of a crime. On Saturday her baby was found unharmed in her car at a Conway ski area, but there was no trace of Dittmeyer.

He declined to comment on reports of blood being found in the car. He said the sheriff who released that information is not involved in the investigation.

In a briefing Tuesday afternoon, Perley said three agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation have joined the case. He would not elaborate on why the FBI was involved in the case.

Perley also said there was Facebook chatter about a volunteer search for Krista at Mt. Cranmore. He asked people to not gather there because there may be evidence that could be inadvertantly destroyed as a search is conducted.

A vigil for Dittmeyer is planned Thursday in Bridgton.
