MESA COUNTY, Colo - The Mesa County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in locating a missing three-year-old. Skyla Treuber is believed to be with her mother, Esther Rose Topai, 38, of Grand Junction who is in violation of a court order involving her.

Skyla was last seen April 30, 2017.

Topai is known to drive a black 1994 Cadillac DeVille with the Colorado  license plate 246DMQ.

They are believed to be in the Grand Junction area, but Topai reportedly has ties to Sarasota, Florida, Demorest, Georgia and Billings, Montana.

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office is following up with law enforcement agencies in those jurisdictions. However, investigators have reason to believe Topai is still in Colorado with Skyla.
