Search is on for teen parents who ran away with their baby

Waite Park police are asking the public for help finding them.

Authorities in Stearns County are asking for the public's help finding a missing teen couple and their infant son.

The mother, 17-year-old Morgan Styke, is described as a "juvenile runaway" in a Facebook post by the city of Waite Park. 

She's believed to be traveling with 19-year-old James Spence and their six-month-old son Bobby in a "mid 90's white Ford Taurus."

A Facebook post from a user describing herself as Styke's aunt says the three "may be traveling out of state."

The circumstances of their disappearance aren't clear at this time; however, authorities have not issued an Amber Alert as the situation does not meet the requirements for one, according to a comment the city made on its Facebook post. 

Amber Alerts are only issued when authorities believe a child is in imminent danger of serious bodily danger or death.

Anyone with information on the trio's whereabouts is asked to call the Waite Park Police Department at 320-251-3281, or report information anonymously to the Tri-County Crime Stoppers of Minnesota
