Yavapai Silent Witness is offering a cash reward for information that leads to the authorities taking custody “Baby Wilcox.”

Steve Skurja, program director for Yavapai Silent Witness, said that, on or about March 17, Shannon Wilcox, 29, gave birth to a child while hiding in a motorhome in Spring Valley south of Mayer.
