The deputy sheriff heard a faint cry of a baby, and during his search and following him to the sound, he found the boy alive, buried under a pile of sticks and debris, face down.
At least 9 hours later, the Missoula County Sheriff found a 5-month-old baby buried in the mountains of Montana.
He heard a faint cry of an infant, and during his search and traced it to the sound, he found the child alive, buried under a pile of sticks and debris face down, according to a statement from the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office in Montana.
The child was wearing dirty and wet clothes, with minor scratches and bruises, but in good condition, and was placed in a family and child services center in Montana.
According to the statement, the child was under the care of Frances Carlton Crowley, 32.
During the night, the officers received a phone call about a man acting strange in Lulu Hot Springs.
Before the police went to the scene, they received more calls stating that he was threatening people with a weapon in his possession, but before they arrived, he had left the place, and the officers learned that the infant who was with him had not been seen for several hours.
Crowley returned to “Lulu Hot Springs” and the police arrested him, and when they tried to question him, he appeared to be under the influence of drugs and unaware of the officers, but then he told them to bury the child in the mountains.
He was charged with criminal charges of endangering the child
