So scary!

The lead singer of The Calling Alex Band was taking a late night Lapeer, Michigan stroll in the wee hours of Sunday morning when he was abducted by two suspects reportedly driving a "blue colored minivan."

No, this is not the plot of Taken 3. This actually happened!

Alex, who was in town for a music festival, was savagely beaten, allegedly robbed, and then left by nearby train tracks.

Another band member of The Calling noticed he was missing and wrangled up a search party posse to find him.

He's lucky to have friends who clearly care a lot about him, because the roughed up singer was promptly found. His manager who discovered him "bleeding all over the place…on the side of the road" alerted police to his location.

He was then taken to the ER, and has since been released.

What an awful ordeal! We hope they catch those terrible perps, and wish Alex all the best in this time of recovery!

    Story on another site said he was claiming he had a lot of broken vertebrae. As someone who had that happen down in Puerto Vallarta, I can tell you, I could not get out bed for a day without the help of my husband, and spent the next 3 days and nights in bed and had to do wheelchair assist on the way back. So sorry, while I normally give people the benefite of the doubt, I am not buying this story.

    The truth is he lied. There was no 'music festival' here this weekend. We had a 'small town' event called Lapeer Days. Alex and 'The Calling' performed on a small stage in the middle of South Court Street. The only things open after 2AM are a few gas stations, a couple fast food restaurants, Walmart and Meijer (similar to walmart, but better)
