It has come to the attention of the Glynn County Police Department that rumors are circulating on social media regarding abductions or attempted abductions of female juveniles in Glynn County. The purpose of this release is to clarify the circumstances surrounding this issue, and hopefully ease the concerns of the community.
There are four juveniles who have been reported missing recently, and at this time, there is no information to support that any of the missing juveniles have been abducted.
On June 19, 2018 12-year-old Alison Lambert was reported as missing from the Jessica Lane area of Glynn County. Initial investigation suggested Alison may have run away from home. The Glynn County Police Department is still investigating this case, and are attempting to verify Alison’s whereabouts.

None of these incidents appear to be connected, and there is no indication at this point that foul play is involved in any of these missing juveniles. It is important to know that not all reports of missing juveniles are indicative of foul play and/or an abduction. Many times, children are found to have run away from home due to behavioral issues, discipline administered by a guardian, etc. In any incident of a missing child, in which there is reasonable belief that an abduction has occurred, or belief that the child is in imminent danger, there will be a thorough investigation. If certain criteria is met, an Amber Alert will also be issued.
