regardless if they were abducted or not, an Amber alert still should be made. maybe someone has seen the vehicle they were traveling in! ANY clue could help in this case! i feel sorry for the family and our prayers are with them....

I don't think the law enforcement should pretend to be GOD. an amber alert should have been issued immediately to find the two. My prayer is with them and the family.

Why would an amber alert not be posted on a 10 year old young boy? Does it matter who he was last with? What if the 17 year old is the one who abducted him? Would one have been sent if it was a 10 year old white boy? Just asking.

My thoughts and prayers are with this family. I think an Amber Alert should have been put out. It doesnt matter if he was witha 17 year old. They both might be in trouble.. This is so sad to kids missing and they want to rule it as its nothing.

Even when you see it, you still deny it. What will it take for you to admit this happens within the black race? I wonder if maybe you think this is normal, so when it happens in a black family it's OK. Well it's not OK, and it's past the time you people realize that,
and start doing something about it.
First of all,YOU are jumping to the conclusion that the little boy was abducted by his uncle for sexual perverted reasons...hmmmmm, now why oh why would THAT pop in YOUR mind? You say that "you people" need to realize that this type thing happens in the family, and that WE need to do something about it. Well, if I must say so myself...but I do believe that's the pot calling the kettle black. YOU PEOPLE (white) have made it a career of molesting your own family member(s). YOUR PEOPLE evidently feel as though it's NORMAL because that's the first thing YOU thought of when you read the story. And btw, I haven't seen any evidence that YOU PEOPLE are getting any help for YOUR "family secret" You got your nerve!!!

What does that have to do with absolutely anything. The boys are MISSING dufus and that's all that should matter. May you have a problem with your sexuality and you're trying to put it off on that situation. SOMEONE'S IN THE CLOSET! Hmmmm

so maybe he has a beef with some 1 or is gang affiliated ? does the police think that just because a 10yr old is with him that thats goin to stop them ? i say start checking the back roads and the woods, i hope i'm wrong but with kids today you can't rule out any thing black or white!
Why does everything always have to be related to gangs. Children are abducted everyday does that mean they're in gangs to.Everything that happens that is bad doesn't always mean its affiliated with gangs.

WHY NO AMBER ALERT????? Just because they were together and are related does not mean they could'nt have been abducted together. It does happen. Any possible "real" leads? Hope they are found and no harm has been done to them.

The 10 year old's photo looks like a school photo, yet, the 17 year old's looks like a mug shot. Does the 17 year old have a prior arrest?

This disappearance looks suspicious to me and I, too, think an Amber Alert should have been issued.

The "guidelines" they use to determine whether or not to issue an Amber Alert should be changed. There's a 10 year old CHILD missing -- circumstances UNKNOWN. An Amber Alert will be helpful in getting the word out and helping people be on the lookout for him.

I hope he's found (alive) soon.

....something is wrong here. Didn't she say the Dad was picking him up? Yet he's in the company of is "young adult" uncle. What's Daddy got to say?

Everyone should be concerned for both. Put out a Missing Persons and Amber Alert.

These are the Amber Alert regulations that are made by the State, not local law enforcement. IT CAN ONLY BE USED FOR ABDUCTIONS, NOT MISSING KIDS. There is a difference between missing and abducted. If an Amber Alert was issued for every kid that went missing or ran away they would never stop and no one would pay attention to them and it wouldn't be effective.

As soon as an ABDUCTION is reported and the investigation reveals the following:
The law enforcement agency believes that the child has been ABDUCTED (taken from their environment unlawfully, without authority of law, and without permission from the child's parent or legal guardian).

The child is 17 years old or younger, and the law enforcement agency believes the child is in immediate danger of serious bodily harm or death; or if the individual is 18 years old or older, and the law enforcement agency believes the individual is at greater risk for immediate danger of serious bodily harm or death because the individual possesses a proven physical or mental disability.

All other possibilities for the victim's disappearance have been reasonably excluded.

There is sufficient information available to disseminate to the public that could assist in locating the victim, suspect, or vehicle used in the abduction.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT send an AMBER Alert if you respond NO to ANY of these statements. How to Activate the South Carolina AMBER Alert:
