PUYALLUP, Wash. — Puyallup police put out a “missing endangered person” alert for a 5-day-old baby Friday night. They said the mother fled with the newborn.

Missing is Myra Maria Aguilar (pictured) and her child, Jeshua Taylor-Aguilar.

Police said Jeshua was born Sunday at a home in Puyallup without medical personnel present and it is believed he has not received any medical care since birth.

A Pierce County Superior Court judge has issued an “Order to Take Child into Custody and Place in Shelter Care” as the baby boy is believed to be in imminent harm, police said.

Jeshua’s mother, Myra, is aware of the order and appears to have fled with the child in an attempt to keep the child from state custody, police said.

Late Friday night, the Puyallup Police Department said it believes the child might also be in the presence of the child’s alleged father, Levi Jerome Taylor.

Taylor has two felony warrants for his arrest — failing to register as a sex offender, assault, and communicating with a minor for immoral purposes.

Taylor is described as an unknown race male standing 5 foot 10 inches, weighing 190, with blue eyes and brown hair.

Jeshua is described as an unknown race male weighing approximately 6 pounds.
Myra is described as an unknown race female with brown eyes and black hair standing 5 foot 3 inches and weighing 150 pounds.

The Puyallup Police Department is asking for the public’s help in immediately locating the child and mother. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Puyallup Police Department at 253-841-5431 or 911.
