Original Story:
Authorities have issued an Amber Alert in a search for a boy, 11, who is believed to be in extreme danger.

The Russell County Sheriff's Office is searching for a 2004 Purple Freightliner tractor, with Virginia license plate 78471PY. 

Officers are searching for Lucas Ezra Silas Guinn, white, 11, 4'08, 84 lbs., brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a red and black shirt and blue jeans.

If this is a pedophile let's put him down. Only ONE way to handle a pedophile and that is to terminate him. Otherwise, when he is released he'll wait for another opportunity. They are not human.
