Original story

SALEM — The Salem Police Department is requesting assistance from the public in locating a "medically fragile" four-month old infant who was taken by his mother at approximately 10:25 pm on May 17.

The infant, Ashton Bradley Giron-Taylor, was taken into protective custody by the Department of Human Services on April 22 due to medical issues that his mother was not appropriately addressing and was placed with his natural father.

His mother, 27-year old Sarah Mullins, had been visiting with the infant and the father on the evening of May 17 when there was a dispute that led to Mullins taking the infant and leaving in her brown 1998 Ford Windstar Van with Oregon license 959EEX and a red bumper sticker on the rear bumper that says "My Son Is A Marine."

Mullins has a history of emotional issues and has threatened to harm herself and her other children in the past. Her current whereabouts are unknown, but she has relatives in southern California and may be headed south.

Anyone with knowledge of the whereabouts of Mullins and/or Bradley are asked to call 911 immediately.
