The Amber Alert that was issued for 15-year-old Dustin Wade Shaver in Pittsylvania County, Virginia, has been suspended. The boy was found safe and his biological mother, Denise Michelle Shaver, 39, and her companions, Kevin Scott Parrish, 24, and Kayla Hoy, have been charged with his abduction.
The Amber Alert was issued at 11:30 p.m. Saturday and was canceled Sunday morning at 8:20 after the boy was found in Benson, North Carolina. Denise Shaver and Kevin Parrish are being held in the Johnston County Jail, and Kayla Hoy is in the Wake County Jail.
The boy was reported missing earlier in the week, but then Dustin Wade Shaver was thought to be in extreme danger when authorities suspected that his mother was involved. Therefore, the Amber Alert was issued.
After the Alert was issued, tips began flooding in. According to Sheriff Mike Taylor, these tips led investigators to laser their focus on Benson, North Carolina. The arrests were reportedly made peacefully and without incident. The suspects are now awaiting extradition.
Luckily the boy was found safe. As to the strange circumstances that surround his abduction, Amber Alert, and resulting arrest of his biological mother, no other information has been released.
It will be interesting to find out the full story behind this baffling situation. For now, the boy is being returned to his legal guardian. However, there is no information to be found as to who his legal guardian is.
