PUYALLUP, Wash. -- Puyallup Police say the FBI has joined the search for a newborn baby believed to be in danger since he was born a week ago.

Captain Scott Engle said Sunday that they're still looking for Jeshua Taylor, who was born Aug. 9 at a home without medical personnel present.

Police believe the baby has not received medical treatment since he was born. They're worried he may be suffering from drug withdrawals.

Engle says state child-protective services received reports about the baby's condition and alerted police. A Pierce County Superior Court judge authorized police to take the baby into protective custody.

Police say the boy's mother, Myra Aguilar, fled with him to keep him out of state custody.

Police believe the baby is with his mother and his alleged father, Levi Jerome Taylor, who has 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.
