Fifteen-year-old Ailane Mariz Lander has been kidnapped. The teenager was last seen in a light blue 1994 Mercury Villager van and is believed to have been abducted by a man identified as Charles Partin. There aren't many details in this developing case, so it's not yet known if Partin is of any relation to this pretty young Alabama teenager.
Ailane Mariz Lander is 5'5" and about 140 lbs., with brown hair and brown eyes. She is described as being a white female. If you see this missing teen, do not hesitate to call Dothan Police at (334)615-3649.
Again, this is a developing story, so it's just not known as to whether or not this is a case of stranger abduction or familial kidnapping. Hopefully more details come in as the time progresses, but most importantly, it's hopeful that a positive ending will come of this case. If this Charles Partin character realizes his name is being blasted through media reports and police scanners, he'd be best off dropping his abduction victim off in a public place and surrendering himself.
