The Austin Police Department is looking to the public for help in the disappearance of a 3-week-old infant.

The missing baby's name is Elijah Phillips, and he was last seen July 22nd - just 3 days after being born.

Brittany Smith, the infant's mother, checked into the hospital on Friday, July 19th using a fake name and gave birth shortly after.

Brandy Galbert, a relative of the mother, was given permission to take the baby from the hospital on July 22nd. Neither Elijah or Brandy Galbert have been seen since.

Child Protective Investigations received a court order on Wednesday, July 24th to remove Elijah from his mother's custody and into their own.
