Abduction of Nine Year Old Autistic Male

Need to Locate

(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 

The Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD), Special Victims Bureau, Missing Persons Unit, is investigating the abduction of a nine year old, autistic male.

According to investigators, the victim was with her son as she was driving westbound on SW 88 Street from 157 Avenue, when she noticed she was being followed by an unknown vehicle.  The driver of the unknown vehicle attempted to side-swipe her vehicle, forcing her to veer onto SW 158 Avenue. The vehicle then blocked her in while a male passenger ambushed her, demanding drugs. After stating she didn't have any drugs, he then stole her cellular phone and abducted her son, fleeing southbound in the unknown vehicle.

Investigators are seeking the assistance of the community in locating Alejandro Ripley and in identifying the individuals involved.
