TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Pierce County prosecutors have charged a Puyallup mother of a missing newborn with custodial interference. She’s accused of fleeing with her son to avoid turning him over to state custody.

The New Tribune reports (https://is.gd/C1hk5m ) an arrest warrant has been issued for 31-year-old Myra Aguilar.

According to charging documents filed Monday, Aguilar fled to avoid a court order authorizing state Child Protective Services to take custody of Jeshua Taylor. He was born Aug. 9 at a home in Puyallup.

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

Court records show Aguilar, who is suspected of using drugs, was fighting the state to retain custody of another child when she became pregnant with Jeshua. She didn’t tell the state when she was due.

Authorities have been looking for Aguilar and the boy since last week.
