    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.

    Tipton is around five feet tall and weighs 80 pounds. He has hazel eyes and brown hair and was last seen carrying a blue backpack and wearing a green shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes.

    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?

    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.
