Santa Spotted Over the Maysville and Ryland Alabama Area

Several of our readers have reported seeing Santa flying over the Maysville and Ryland Alabama area. Reports suggested Santa was in our area between 1PM and 3PM. Karen Peppermint, a homeowner in Cooper Estates, claims she was returning from the Maysville General Store at the Maysville Four-Way when she first saw a red streak shoot across the sky. "Something caught my eye coming from the direction of Central School on Ryland Pike. It was so fast, I thought it was a missile being fired from Redstone Arsenal, but then it suddenly stopped in the sky. I could then see it was Santa and his team of reindeer. They just sat still, in the air for a moment. He was so close I could see his beard and the red glow of the nose of the lead riendeer. Then, in a split second, he took off leaving a whirl of wind that blew the leaves off of the trees and what appeared to be red and gold glitter dust. It was amazing!", said Karen Peppermint. Those of us at the Maysville and Ryland News believe Santa must have been seeing who was being naughty and nice at Central School, possibly talking to teachers and parents to update his list. We also speculate he then made a quick check of the homes in Cooper Estates and the adjoining area. We will keep you up to date of any further reports.

Alabama Amber Alert for Brittany Mae Smith

An amber alert has been issued for 12 year old Brittany Mae Smith who is believed to be in the custody of Jeffrey Scott Easley who is pictured here as well. Please note that the photo on the far left does not identify that Easley has lost considerable weight. Please keep your eyes open as Easley has ties to Alabama and may be headed here or is here at this time. Easley has purchased a blue tent since the alleged abduction so he and Brittany Mae Smith may be camping around or in wooded areas. They are thought to be traveling in a Silver Dodge Neon with Virginia license plates, XKF2365.
