Alex Band, the lead singer of The Calling, was abducted and beaten this weekend in Michigan, TMZ reports. According to the site, the rocker was walking from his hotel in Lapeer, Mich., to a nearby mini-mart at around 4 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 18, when some people in a van pulled up alongside him and took him off the street.
Sources tell TMZ the abductors beat the 32-year-old Band severely before dumping him on some local train tracks. He was discovered a short time later.
Band and his The Calling bandmates -- who split in 2005 but reportedly reunited just recently -- were in Lapeer for a music festival. Another member of the group (known for the song "Wherever You Will Go") reportedly noticed that the singer had gone missing on Sunday morning and then assembled a search party.
Law enforcement officials wouldn't confirm the details of the incident to TMZ, but the site says that a report was filed and that cops are currently investigating. Band himself has not yet responded to TMZ's request for comment. His condition is unclear.
