Raison Eli, 16, and her two-month old son, Dill, were last seen by family members in the 5900 block of South Kenneth Ave. on Nov. 25, according to a missing persons alert from Wentworth Area detectives.

Eli was under psychiatric care and was not allowed to be alone with the baby, according to the alert.

Eli is described as a 5-foot-1, 95-pound girl with olive-colored skin, long black hair and brown eyes, the alert said. She may have cut or colored her hair.

Dill is described as about 24 inches tall and also has olive-colored skin, the alert said. He is about 10 pounds.

The teenager and her infant may be with Timothy Cuito, a friend of the family, according to the alert. The missing persons may be trying to reach New York or Florida, but it is possible they are still in the Chicago area.

Cuito is described as a 5-foot-6, 21-year-old man with olive colored skin, a slender build, black hair and brown eyes, the alert said.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Eli, her son, or Cuito, is asked to call Wentworth Area detectives at (312) 747-8385.

Photographs of Eli or the baby were not available.
