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

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

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
