New Hampshire police plan to search two vehicles in their investigation into a missing Maine woman whose young daughter was found in one of them.

Police say a car belonging to 20-year-old Portland, Maine, resident Krista Dittmeyer was found Saturday with its engine running and hazard lights flashing in the Cranmore Mountain ski area parking lot in Conway, a town of about 10,000 people.

Police say there's nothing to indicate Dittmeyer left the area voluntarily. They're investigating the case as a possible crime.

Dittmeyer's mother, Lanell Shackley, on Monday told WBZ-TV in Boston there's no way her daughter would ever leave her baby.

Police Lt. Chris Perley says he wouldn't want to speculate on the condition of Dittmeyer but would just hope she's safe and sound.

The child was in good condition and is now with family members.
