The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is searching for a missing 17-year-old and her 9-month-old son.

The Center says that  Morgan Styke and her 9-month-old son Bobby Spence have been missing since October 23 from Minnesota. The Waite Park Police Department says that Morgan was reported missing after failing to show up for work in October. The child’s father, James Spence, 19, was scheduled to return the 9-month-old to his Styke after work but failed to do so.

Styke, her son, and James Spence are believed to be together and traveling in a white four-door pickup truck with no tailgate.

Investigators say Styke was in contact with her mother the day after she went missing but has not been in contact since. Investigators say that the three may have switched vehicles and may be in North Texas or Mississippi.

Law enforcement says they are concerned for the well-being of Stykes and her child. James Spence is wanted on unrelated charges.

If anyone has information about Morgan, Bobby or James contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 or the Waite Park Police Department at 320-251-3281.
