Trail goes cold in search for teen mom and 9-month old son

Waite Park PD is looking for new leads.
Publish date:

Police in Minnesota have re-issued an appeal for information on the whereabouts of a teenage mom and her young son who have been missing since October.

Waite Park PD are chasing up national leads to track down the 17-year-old Morgan Styke and 9-month-old son Bobby James Spence.

When they were initially reported missing in late October, police said they're believed to be with the boy's father, 19-year-old James Spence.

The last confirmed sighting of Morgan Styke was from surveillance cameras at a store in Mississippi in November.

Since then, the white Ford Taurus they were reportedly driving was found at an impound lot several weeks ago, and has gone unclaimed.

There has also been no traceable phone, social media or credit card activity, or family contact, for "some time."

At this time, Waite Park Police Chief Dave Bentrud says police just want to speak with Morgan to see if she and the child are safe.

Anyone with information should call 320-251-3281.
