Someone on fark posts this today. Keep your eyes peeled, folks, and call the cops immediately if you see this guy:


Yeah, this is for real. I found out Tuesday morning that my niece’s husband probably killed his parents and is on the run with my treasured grand niece. She has a ‘strawberry’ on her face; a growth that she’s being treated for, but without help, it could hurt her.


The fugitive’s name is Justin Wayne Smith (what is it with guys named Wayne?), age 25, 5’10”, 165lbs. The mother’s name is Elizabeth Ryan Smith (nee Earles), age 20, 5’5″, 125lbs., and the baby is Shelbie Smith, age 9 months.

Both the mother and the baby are missing. Justin used his dead father’s credit card at a gas station in Converse, Texas (San Antonio). He may be in possession of, or attempt to sell, some of his dead mother’s jewelry.

He may be driving his vehicle, a tan 1999 K1500 Chevrolet Suburban, Texas license plates reading “TNT 5”. The car’s VIN: # 1GNFK16R0XJ332452. It may look similar to this one:

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information at (979) 244-TIPS or (800) 299-BUST.

An Amber Alert has been issued and is active. Anyone with information is asked to call the Texas Department Of Public Safety at 979-543-6878 or dial 911.
