The Robeson County (N.C.) Sheriff’s Department issued an Amber Alert on Friday, Dec. 27 for 1-year-old Jaylon Marcus Bullard and his mother, 21-year-old Candice Locklear of Red Springs, N.C.

Jaylon is described as an infant of American Indian descent, 2 feet tall and weighing 30 pounds. His mother is also American Indian. She is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 153 pounds. She has brown eyes and black hair.

Robeson County deputies reported that Jaylon was abducted by Shamael Ellerber, a 23-year-old black male, described as 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 138 pounds. Ellerber has three tattoos — his chest is tattooed with the name Melissa, his right hand contains the name Jaden and on his right arm is tattooed the name Meagan.

They are believed to be traveling in a green 2001 4-door Chevrolet Malibu with North Carolina license plates CAE8603. The Sheriff’s Office has reason to believe that the trio may be in the Mecklenburg County, Va. area. They ask for anyone who has seen them or the vehicle to contact the local 9-1-1 or NCMEC at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or Robeson County Sheriff’s Department, 910-671-3172.
