    Dothan, Al. 36303, Alabama



    On December 18, 2013, our son, Ryles Chapman, ran out of our house barefooted dressed only in shorts yelling that someone was chasing him; he has not been seen since in a proven sighting. However, there have been numerous reports that he's in Dothan, AL. where we all live, but so far, there is no verifiable video or picture. The local police department, the Alabama Bureau of Investigation, and the FBI canine team have all been searching. We have had four organized ground searches, several press conferences, helicopter searches, and prayer vigils. Our FB page is findryleschapman which has over 8000 followers. Please, please help us find our son. He has two beautiful babies who want their daddy home. It's been our belief that he was still in the greater Dothan, AL. area; now we just don't know. Thank you for viewing this video; our second greatest hope right now is for this story to take center stage in the national media. Our first hope is obviously finding Ryles safe and sound. We are in southeast AL. only two hours from Panama City, FL. and four hours from Atlanta, GA. Ryles has two brothers, a sister, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and so many friends who miss him so much. Also, follow us on twitter @ #findryles. Every tweet, share, and view is appreciated!  PLEASE HELP US!


    Gratefully yours,

    Wes, Jamie, Wes III, Matt, Mary Katherine, Saylor, and Sawyer
