No Amber Alert has been issued for a 7-year-old autistic Kentucky boy – who is unable to communicate – missing since around 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 24.  Authorities state they do not have any evidence to lead them to believe it was abduction, so no alert has been released.

According to, the boy, Randall Leon Chesser, was last seen at his home on Lawrenceburg Rd in Willisburg, KY, wearing a light blue hoodie, blue jeans and cowboy boots with spurs. He is a white male, four foot tall, weighing about 40 pounds, brown hair and brown eyes. Randall has a birthmark in the hairline above his forehead.

After searching for hours themselves, the family requested help from the Washington County Sherriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s Department then called on the Kentucky State Police to take over the investigation early Sunday morning.

Those searching for Randall are not only on foot but are using ATV, helicopter, and auto.  Volunteers including people from the community, Fire, EMS, Rescue and Law Enforcement agencies, and the Commonwealth Search & Rescue Dog Team are aiding in the search for Randall.

“Kentucky State Police are asking that anyone with any information contact them at 800-222-5555.  Any hunter that may have a trail camera in the area of the Rock Run Creek is asked to review their footage and contact KSP if any information becomes available,” as reported by
