Ryles Chapman: Missing since December 2013 from


Ryles Chapman
went missing on December 18, 2013.

I have copied the following from the “Find Ryles Chapman” website:

“On December 17, 2013, Ryles was hanging Christmas lights on his family’s Dothan home, who would have ever thought in 24 hours our lives would be changed forever!  Our beloved son would disappear and the entire community would be forever changed.
On December 18, 2013 @ approx. 7:15pm Ryles ran from his bedroom barefooted dressed only in shorts yelling that someone was chasing him; he has not been seen since in a proven sighting.  However, there have been numerous reports that he’s in the Dothan, AL area.  So far, there is no verifiable video or picture.  The local police department, the Alabama Bureau of Investigation, and the FBI canine team have all been searching.  We have had four organized ground searches, several press conferences, helicopter searches and prayer vigils. 

Our FB page is findryleschapman which has over 10,000 followers all with one goal, to find Ryles.  We are in southeast Alabama only two hours from Panama City, Fl. and four hours from Atlanta Ga.  Ryles has two brothers, a sister, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and so many friends who miss him so much.  Also, follow us on twitter @ #findryles.

Ryles turned 26 on June 30, 2014, he has blue eyes and brown hair.  He has various tatoos on his back, chest, side and forearm.  Click here to see photos of him with tattoos.    He is approximately 6 ft and weighs 180 lbs. Ryles has 2 children ages 2 & 9mths.
