— Raleigh police located a woman who disappeared with her nearly 5-month-old son, but an Tarboro mother of four remained missing Saturday.

The baby, Peyton Joseph Seldomridge, was unharmed, officials said. He and his mother, Destonie Dale Peitz, 24, were found on Saturday morning.

Police never called the disappearance an abduction, but said they were concerned about the well-being of the baby.

Meanwhile, officials with the Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office said they had few leads in the case of Francisco Morales Jaimes, 45, of 3377 Chinquapin Road.

Jaimes was last seen on Nov. 1. She has four children and family in the Sanford area, authorities said.

Authorities described Jaimes as Caucasian, 5 feet 9 inches tall and approximately 160 pounds. She has brown hair and green eyes.

Anyone with any information on her whereabouts is asked to call the Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office at 252-641-7911.
