North Dakota pregnant mom missing; newborn found at apartment FOUND

UPDATE 12/28/17 –   Kayakers saw a body in the Red River east of Harwood on Sunday.  The body was hung up on a log and was wrapped in plastic and duct tape Valley News Live reported.  The body was identified to be Savanna Lafontaine-Greywind.

William Henry Hoehn, 32, and Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, is the name of the two people that were arrested when a body was found at an apartment where Greywind last visited.  They were charged with conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and false information on August 24, 2017.

Savanna Lafontaine-Greywind, 22, went missing on Saturday, August 19, 2017.  Savanna who was 8-months pregnant went to visit a neighbor at the North Fargo apartments.   She never returned and her family called police after she failed to return their texts, according to news station KVLY.

During the investigation into Savanna’s disappearance a newborn baby was found at the apartment complex on Thursday, and two people were taken into custody for questioning.

The Fargo Police Dept. stated on their Facebook post: “Interviews with the two we have in custody are still being conducted. The Fargo Police Department, in conjunction with the BCI continue to work the location of the search warrant from this afternoon. We still do not know the whereabouts of Savanna. We will continue to update Facebook as information develops on this case.”

“We discovered an infant that appears to be a newborn infant. At this point in time, we’re not able to confirm if that newborn infant is Savannah Greywind’s child or not,” Fargo Police Chief David Todd said in a Facebook video.

Valley News Live posted on Facebook:  “The family of Savanna Greywind tell us they have moved their search for Savanna to Buffalo River State Park after receiving an anonymous phone call telling them to look 30 miles east of Fargo near I-94. We have multiple crews there with the family as the search for Savanna continues.”

A family member told Valley News Live that the police kicked the door in and she heard a woman screaming.  The police had obtained a search warrant because the neighbors were advising the police what was going on in that particular apartment.

“Fargo Forensic lab showed up and they pulled the family aside and told them a two-day-old healthy baby girl found in the apartment,” said the unidentified family member.

The baby was taken to the hospital and a DNA test has been given.
