AMBER ALERT Issued in Pickens County, SC for Abduction of Missing 1 Year Old Kynadi Leigh Grace Manley & 2 Year Old Alexis London Marie Manley … Mother Keyly Martay Wade Suspect (Amber Alert Cancelled)


An AMBER ALERT has been issued in Pickens County, South Carolina for two toddlers who have been abducted by what is being reported as their bio mom early Wednesday morning.  According to reports. 20 year old  Keyly Martay Wade of Old Easley Bridge Road, in Easley abducted her two daughters,  1 year old Kynadi Leigh Grace Manley and 2 year-old Alexis London Marie Manley from a home on Old Easley Bridge Road in Easley. Wade was driving a red 1996 Honda Civic with a South Carolina license plate 1885OEH. Also, the passenger side rear hubcap is missing and the vehicle has tinted windows and dent on driver side hood. The missing car  belongs to the aunt, and has a tag on the front that reads: “you can’t be first, but you can be next.”

 Kynadi Leigh Grace Manley as 2 feet, 5 inches tall, weighing 28 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing pink pajamas with a turtle design. Alexis London Marie Manley is 3 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 45 pounds. She has blond hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing purple pajamas with a monkey design. She also has a bob style haircut.

According to Capt. Carl Hudson with the sheriff’s office, the abduction happened sometime overnight. He said a caregiver had custody of the children. When she woke up this morning, she discovered the children were gone and her car was stolen, he said. She called 911 about 6:45 this morning, according to the AMBER Alert.

Though the alert listed Wade as a suspect, Hudson said investigators considered her more of a person of interest.

“We have officers out following up leads, but at this point, we don’t know who has the girls or where they might be,” Hudson said.

Deputies are making the assumption the children are in danger due to the fact that they don’t know who has them, Hudson said.

Wade was described as 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds. She has blond hair and blue eyes, with shoulder-length hair and the word “Keyly” tattooed on her back.

If you have any information about this abduction, call 911 or Pickens County Sheriff’s Office Detective Rita Burgess at 864-898-5500.

UPDATE I: Amber Alert Cancelled, Girls Said to Be in Another State.

An Amber Alert for two little girls has been cancelled and the girls are said to be safe, even though they’re not back home.

Pickens County deputies and State Law Enforcement Division agents cancelled the alert for one-year-old Kynadi Leigh Grace Manley and two year old Alexis London Marie Manley.

      I certainly hope that the Amber Alert extends throughout S. Carolina, N. Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee.

      It is less than an hours drive to Georgia and N. Carolina and one and one-half hours to Tennessee.

      Another possible family kidnapping. Why was this woman not the primary caregiver for these babies?

      Where is the biological father?

      A mother desperate enough to face the law to be with her children? She is either a danger to them or someone who was railroaded. I have seen both, moms loosing their children because they had no money to fight someone who wanted them to raise so they could play the martyr or for a check. A mom who kidnaps is at the end of her rope. I hope these girls are safe and that their mother is not a danger to them but if she isn’t a danger then they are all 3 in a terrible situation and if she is then I hope they find them soon.
