    An Amber Alert has been issued for a kidnapped 5-year-old boy from Alabama.

    The notification comes from the Alabama Department of Public Safety and the Albertville Police Department regarding Monday morning's disappearance of Geontae Glass, a black male who was last seen at 601 Baltimore Avenue in Albertville.

    Geontae is approximately 3 feet tall, 65 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. He is considered to be in extreme danger.

    Authorities said Geontae was in the back seat of a vehicle that was stolen by a black male. The suspect is described as between 5 feet, 9 inches tall, weighing 200 to 220 pounds.

    The stolen car is a light blue, 1994 Nissan Altima, with no tag on the vehicle. It was last seen traveling south on Alabama Highway 206.

    Troopers and Albertville police have turned to the public for assistance. If you have any information regarding the missing boy, please contact Albertville Police at 256-878-1212; State Troopers at 334-242-4128 or call your local police department.

    Poor little guy. I had forgotten that I had amber alerts for Alabama still on my cell phone and got the text messages.

    I hope he is safe and I hope they find that scum that has put him in harms way.

    This is so sad

    A 5-year-old boy who was asleep in the back of a car when it was stolen from a parking lot was found dead Tuesday morning in a neighboring county, authorities said.

    The body of Geontae Glass was discovered in a rural area of Etowah County, said a dispatcher for that county's sheriff's department, who did not give her name. Officials planned to release details at a midmorning news conference, she said.

    What a terrible way for this story to end. I am heartbroken. My prayers to the mother and family who must be devestated. You should never leave a child in a running vehicle - even for a short period of time.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    How horrible! It sounds like she left the door unlocked and the car running. Just too easy to steal. They probably didn't even realize the boy was there until later. I wonder if the thief killed the boy or if he died of exposure.

    I wish this had turned out different...I was hoping for a better outcome.

    I'm so heartbroken about this precious little boy. I was hoping that he would be returned safely. I'll never understand how a person can hurt a child.

    Sheriff: Stolen Car A Hoax; Mom, Man Held In Boy's Death

    25-year-old Shalinda Glass of Rainbow City, and Kevin Andre Towles, who is believed to own the house where the body was found, are in jail.

    It is not immediately clear if the boy was dead at the time the car was driven off in Albertville. Authorities at a midmorning news conference in Gadsden said a cause of death is still being determined.

    That's terrible! Why do these mothers keep trying this hoax?

    May G-d hold Geontae in his hand and comfort him.

    When I first read the story about the body being found, I had a terrible feeling in my gut that the mother had something to do with it.

    I could not fathom why a car-jacker (or anyone else for that matter!) would kill a child.

    How horrible. I hope there is swift justice for this little boy.
