Puyallup police and the Washington State Patrol are searching for a newborn boy believed to be in imminent danger.

Jeshua Taylor was born Sunday in a house in the 2800 block of 11th Street Southeast to Myra Maria Aguilar.

Police reported Friday that the boy was born without medical personnel present and most likely has not received any medical care since his birth.

A Pierce County Superior Court judge has issued an order authorizing police to take the boy into custody and place him into shelter care, Puyallup police reported.

Aguilar is aware of the order and is believed to have absconded with her son to keep the child from state custody, police said.

Police also think the baby might be in the presence of his alleged father, Levi Jerome Taylor. Taylor is being sought on warrants for assault, communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, and failing to register as a sex offender.

Aguilar is 5 feet 3 inches and 150 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. Taylor is 5-10 and 190 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the boy, Aguilar or Taylor is asked to call Puyallup police at 253-841-5431 or to report the information to 911.
