Wayland - The Michigan Department of State Police Operations Center has issued an Amber Alert for a missing teen from Wayland. Wesley Ashton Ayers, 15 years old, 6'0" tall, 230 lbs., brown eyes and brown hair with a cross tattoo on his left leg was last seen at home in Wayland babysitting on April 26th. When his mother returned home, Ayers was missing.

Wayland Police believe that Ayers was abducted by Dana Lee Rider, male, 24 years old, 5'4" tall, 155 lbs., with brown eyes and brown hair and a large tattoo on his back and on his right bicep.

Rider recently moved to Wayland and is a convicted sex offender. Wayland police say another man, 19 year old Kasey Giffin is also involved and is considered a person of interest.

Investigators say Rider stole a black Kia Sportage from the Wayland Police Department parking lot. It has since been found in Albion, Indiana northwest of Fort Wayne. They are now believed to be traveling in another stolen vehicle, a gray Pontiac Montana.

Police say Rider has ties in Indiana. If you have any information about this case call 911 or the Wayland Police Department 269-792-9366 immediately. We'll update this information as often as possible on
