Vancouver police hope someone will recognize Kiah Mickels, 16, who ran away from home with her son, Jayden, 4 months.

Kiah Mickels is described as white, about 5 feet 4 inches tall and 120 pounds. Her eyes and hair are brown. She was last seen at her home on Wednesday, according to a bulletin from the Vancouver Police Department.

“It is unknown what she was wearing at the time she left; it is also unknown if she is associated with any vehicles,” the bulletin said. “It is unknown at this time what the circumstances are surrounding her disappearance, but foul play is not suspected. It is unknown where they are headed.”

The police would appreciate any assistance the public and media can provide. Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Kiah and Jayden are urged to call 911 or the Vancouver Police Department tip line at 360-487-7399.
