Fifteen-year-old Ailene Lander (falsely reported as Ailane Lander), is reportedly pregnant. Could this have anything to do with why her stepfather abducted her from a clinic in Alabama? The FBI is joining in on the search for the kidnapped Alabama teenager and the details coming to the media are making this case more confusing than it was before. There appears to be quite a bit of back story to this case and it's shrouded in secrecy.
It's being reported that 15-year-old Ailene was a ward of the state basically because of an investigation she is a part of, but what kind of investigation is this and why can't she be with her mother and stepfather? After all, the man who kidnapped her, and her mother, have several other children at home with her being one of the older ones.
Investigators believe that Charles Partin is transporting Ailene Lander, along with her mother, to Mexico. This indicates that the man is definitely running from something, and not just the repercussions of kidnapping his own stepdaughter. It would be interesting to see what kind of details come out about this investigation, her pregnancy and why she was abducted.
