Information about a missing Puyallup infant could lead to a $1,000 reward, police said Monday.

Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering the money for details about baby Jeshua Taylor’s whereabouts.

He was born Aug. 9, and last seen Aug. 12. Police think he might be with his mother, 31-year-old Myra Aguilar, and 35-year-old Levi Taylor, his assumed father.

Jeshua might have been in medical distress when he was born, likely hasn’t gotten medical treatment and could be suffering from drug withdrawals because of his mother’s history, police have said.

Investigators believe Aguilar fled with her son after police got a court order to put him into shelter care.

Taylor is wanted for warrants related to third-degree assault, communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, and for failing to register as a sex offender, according to police.

The baby is described as about 6 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Aguilar is Hispanic, 5 feet 3, 120 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Taylor is described as American Indian, 5 feet 10, 190 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to called 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
