    TN - Ben Tipton, 11, Spring Hill, 17 Sep 2013

    Police are looking for 11 year old Ben Tipton, who went missing while riding his bike around 2:30 today. The bike was located around 6:30 this evening, but no sign of Ben. Spring Hill is just south of Nashville. The bike was found inside a neighborhood. I just got an Amber Alert about this on my phone as well.

    I found a kid about his age that lived in Ohio 3 years ago. I wonder if the family recently moved?
    I'm not 100% sure it was him so I am not going to link it. But it looks a lot like him.
    If they recently moved maybe he didn't know the area, or maybe he wants to go back?

    The bike was found near the Spring Hill Kroger store at about 6:30 p.m. but the child was not with the bike.

    Oh goodness, I hope this little cutie is found soon!

    I really hope he just got a bit lost, and the searchers find him safe and well.

    So Tennessee appears to be the weird one on Amber Alerts.
    This is at least the second one I've seen with no vehicle description.
    I wonder if they had another reason to issue it... such as the condition of his bike?

    For the locals:

    Spring Hill Police are asking any members of the public who want to help with a search effort to go to Spring Hill Church of Christ on 5351 Main Street. Church elder Phil Bennett said authorities asked the public not to go to the area where Tipton was last seen during the initial stages of the investigation.

    From live report:

    Still searching, dozens of volunteers waiting to help.
    Dozens might not be accurate, it looks like more than that.
    People on foot, helicopters and K9's.

    Update from Sheriff's Department in the next 10 minutes.

    I do hope Ben is found soon! My 12yo son and I were watching TV (40 miles from Ben's original location) when we got the Amber Alert on Comcast. The look on my son's face both terrified me and made me sigh in relief at the same time. DS finally gets why I won't let him 'just ride his bike around the block' or why I won't 'just let him ride two streets over to visit his friend', the world is not a safe place for our children anymore... period, even in a neighborhood your father (as my son's did) grew up in. It is not safe ANYWHERE anymore!

    My prayers are with this family tonight. I do hope this young boy just wandered off, or 'ran away'. Anything more breaks my heart.
    There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief.. and unspeakable love. --Washington Irving
