Missing since September 1, 1995 from Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Skyla was last seen with her parents. Her parents returned home to Houston, Texas without her. The couple have refused to cooperate with police investigating the case. Skyla's grandmother confided to a coworker that she was told by her son the baby "just died" and was buried "in a peaceful valley under a tree."
The couple told California authorities they belonged to a religious group that forbade their seeking medical attention.
The baby was born at a private home in Glorieta, a small town east of Santa Fe, on April 23 without medical assistance and without any official record.
Based on information from other witnesses, police believe Skyla died in late October. Investigators feel she could have been buried in or around a national park near Healdsburg, California, where the couple were staying at the time.
