DETROIT (WWJ) – Police in Detroit are asking for help in locating a newborn and the young relative who was last seen with the infant.
Seven-week-old Ziairr Ryles was last seen by his grandmother at a residence on Outer Drive Tuesday. The grandmother dropped off a cousin, Quaiana Taylor, (now a suspect) and the baby to visit friends.
Ziairr has dark brown hair and brown eyes, weighs approximately 7 pounds and is about 20 inches long.
He was last seen wearing an orange tee-shirt with a monkey picture on it and monkey print pants. The baby may be wearing different clothing. The mother of the missing boy stated that Quaiana Taylor had taken a change of clothes for him.
Taylor is 21, about 5’6″ – 5’8″ tall and weighs roughly 190-215 pounds, medium length black straight weave worn in a ponytail. She was last seen wearing an orange tank top and black pants.
The cousin took the baby into the apartment complex, but apparently never arrived at the apartment.
If anyone has seen or knows the whereabouts of either the missing baby or the suspect, please contact Detroit Police Investigators at (313) 596-5940.
