    upload_2017-8-24_20-57-0.jpeg

    A Fargo woman's family said she has been missing since Saturday afternoon. According to her family, 22-year-old Savanna Lafontaine-Greywind is 8 months pregnant and was last seen at her North Fargo on apartment at 2825 9th St. N.between 1:30PM - 2:00PM on Saturday.

    Her family said she doesn't have her car or wallet with her which is out of the ordinary for her. According to her mother, Savanna went over to a neighbor's apartment to model a dress Saturday afternoon. Hours passed and around 5:30 PM, her family began to wonder where she was because she wasn't getting back to them. Her mom said they talked to the woman who Savanna was modeling for and that lady said she left. Police were called, the apartment was searched, but Savanna wasn't found according to her family.

    'Something's wrong': Disappearance of pregnant Fargo woman still a mystery

    A Fargo family has been searching frantically for a missing 22-year-old woman who is eight months pregnant and disappeared from a north side apartment building without a trace on Saturday.

    The woman, Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, left her family's apartment on 10th Street North to help an upstairs neighbor who needed a model while sewing a dress, but she never came home and hasn't been heard from since.

    Norberta LaFontaine-Greywind, Savanna's mother, said she ordered a pizza before going upstairs to help the neighbor, but never returned to eat it. She left her car parked in the apartment building's parking lot. She left her wallet at home, too.

    When she didn't return, her mother knocked on the door of the upstairs apartment and was told her daughter had left.

    "I immediately knew something was wrong because her car is here," her mother said. "She's eight months pregnant. Her feet were swollen, so she wouldn't have taken up walking like that. There was pizza here that she hadn't eaten. She would not just leave that lady's apartment and go somewhere."

    2-day-old baby found in complex where pregnant woman went missing

    A two-day-old baby was found in the North Dakota apartment building where a missing pregnant woman was last seen before she vanished.

    Fargo Police said that the newborn was found at the apartment complex Thursday afternoon and two people have been detained for questioning.

    “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.

    It is not clear where in the apartment complex the baby was found, but the infant was healthy and brought to a hospital.

    Todd said Lafontaine-Greywind was not in the apartment and there was no new information about her whereabouts. Police are treating the case as a criminal investigation.

    “This is at a critical juncture of the investigation and we want to make sure we are as thorough as possible so we can get correct answers to all the questions people have,” Todd said.

    Newborn found alive where pregnant Fargo woman vanished

    A potentially unthinkable story began to reveal itself Thursday, Aug. 24, when the investigation into the disappearance of a pregnant 22-year-old woman resulted in the discovery of a healthy infant at a north Fargo apartment building where the woman was last seen.

    Two people were detained for questioning in connection with the case, police said. The missing woman, Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, had not been found.

    At least six investigators were seen donning hazmat suits Thursday night at the scene. And one investigator with a shovel was seen walking to the back of the apartment building, 2825 9th St. N., where LaFontaine-Greywind lives with her parents in a basement unit.


    Lafontaine-Greywind’s Twitter profile says her due date is Sept. 20. On Aug. 13, she tagged her boyfriend of six years and soon-to-be father, Ashton Matheny, in a Facebook post that read: “A little bit more things & we will almost have everything for our little baby. Getting so close.”

    Matheny said Thursday that he and Lafontaine-Greywind were expecting a baby girl. They had picked the name Haisley Jo.

    He said he has not been able to see the baby that was taken from the building. “They said it’s healthy, but they’re running more tests,” he said.

    Mathey said Lafontaine-Greywind’s parents are staying in a hotel because the apartment building was evacuated. “They took her toothbrush for DNA, but they haven’t taken mine,” he said.


    “At this time we are continuing to follow up all leads,” the post said.

    She said police had told her the FBI was being kept informed about the case, but as of Thursday morning there was nothing to indicate the FBI had jurisdiction to join the investigation officially.

    Anyone with information about LaFontaine-Greywind’s whereabouts is asked to call Fargo police at (701) 235-4493 or text a tip to (701) 730-8888 or call the anonymous tip line at (701) 241-5777.

    2 arrested after baby found alive where pregnant Fargo woman vanished
    https://www.wday.com/news/4317213-2...und-alive-where-pregnant-fargo-woman-vanished

    Two people are in jail in connection to the case of missing 22-year-old Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind.

    This after authorities found a newborn baby, believed to be Savanna's.

    It all happened at 2825 9th Street North in Fargo, the same apartment building Savanna lived in.

    The people behind bars are 38-year-old Brooke Lynn Crews and 32-year-old William Henry Hoehn.

    These are the people police say she visited for a sewing project before she went missing on Saturday.

    Police searched Crews' and Hoehn's apartment yesterday, and that's when they found the newborn baby that's believed to be Savanna's.

    Police were tipped off when neighbors called saying they heard a baby crying.

    The child is now at Sanford and is said to be in good health.

    The baby will be placed in Child Protective Services.

    Hoehn and Crews were arrested for Class A Felony Conspiracy to Commit Kidnapping.

    Meanwhile, Savanna herself is still missing, and the massive search for her continues.

    Authorities have been taking a boat out since Monday to comb the Red River.

    It's equipped with new technology as of one month ago.

    The boat has a side-scan sonar and uses echo-techology to find structures in the water like boats or bodies.

    Crews will continue searching for Savanna along the river for the next ten days, or until she is found.

    They've spent about 12 hours on the water this week.

    Police have also conducted their own searches using both K9's and helicopters.

    TIMELINE

    Saturday, Aug. 19

    1:24 p.m., Savanna texts her mother, Norberta LaFontaine-Greywind, to say she is going to an upstairs apartment to model a dress.

    2:30 p.m., Norberta LaFontaine-Greywind sends her 16-year-old son to the upstairs apartment to get his sister, who was to drive him to work. Her brother knocks on the door, but no one answers. He hears what he thinks is a sewing machine running in the apartment. Savanna's father, Joe Greywind, then knocks on the upstairs apartment door. A woman answers the door and says Savanna will be a bit longer.

    2:40 p.m., Norberta LaFontaine-Greywind drives her son to work. She returns to the apartment building about 3:15 p.m. and, assuming her daughter is in her room, does some laundry.

    At roughly 4:30 p.m., Norberta LaFontaine-Greywind knocks on the upstairs apartment door and is told that her daughter has left. Savanna's mother then calls Fargo police to report her daughter missing. Family and friends immediately begin searching for her.

    That day, the Fargo Police Department posts a missing-person report on its Facebook page.

    Sunday, Aug. 20

    Family members begin making and posting signs asking for the public's help in finding LaFontaine-Greywind.

    Wednesday, Aug. 23

    Family and friends hold a prayer event at Sanford Medical Center in downtown Fargo asking for help and calling on Fargo police to request FBI assistance in the search. It is announced that a $7,000 reward is being offered in the case.

    Thursday, Aug. 24

    10:05 a.m., Fargo police post notice on social media that federal officials are being kept informed of the case and that nearly all of the department's investigative unit is working on various aspects of the case. Police also said there have been multiple searches of the Red River, including one Thursday morning, as well as K-9 trackings and an aerial search. In addition, police said three searches were made of the upstairs apartment where LaFontaine-Greywind was last known to be.


    Thursday afternoon

    Police, acting on an earlier tip of a baby crying at an apartment at 2825 9th St. N., enter an apartment where a woman is heard to scream. Neighbor says he sees an infant taken from the apartment and placed in an ambulance. Spokeswoman for the Greywind family says a 2-day-old infant was found alive and taken to the hospital. No word on where Savanna may be, but late Thursday afternoon search dogs go over the apartment building and the family is told new information is available but they are not to share it.


    About 6:50 p.m.

    A North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation truck pulls up to the apartment building.



    About 6:55 p.m.

    A police officer went behind the building with a shovel.



    Shortly after 7:30 p.m

    Several officers donned white hazmat suits and went behind the building.

    Man arrested for kidnapping in Savanna Greywind case has criminal history


    Back in February of 2011, Hoehn was charged with child neglect or abuse. The court complaint says Hoehn brought his son to a Grand Forks hospital that year with fractures near his right ear.
    Authorities ruled out the possibility the boy's injuries were caused by an accident or a medical condition. Hoehn later pleaded guilty to the charges.

    Almost exactly a year ago in 2016, Hoehn pleaded guilty to Simple Assault, Domestic violence.

    Back in 2011, he was found guilty of possession of drug paraphernalia.

    Witnesses say they watched an officer carry an infant out of the building.

    Police told family members of Greywind’s that they are comparing the infant’s DNA with that of the father’s. Greywind has not been found.

    Family members say while she went to the upstairs apartment, she did not know the people who lived there well.

    “They believe now that the woman maybe had some mental illness,” said Greywind’s aunt, Tarita Silk. “She was in her 50’s and the boyfriend I believe was in his 30’s and the woman worked with the man, worked with one of the neighbors at Subway it might be here in town and was telling him that a week ago she was going to have a baby and he told his girlfriend that lives here ‘I thought that was odd cause she didn’t look pregnant’. And now this turns up so. Savanna had had maybe one conversation with the lady.”

    Silk said the family got a tip that Greywind could be in an area 30 miles from Fargo, possibly in a recreational area or rest area. They are heading to Buffalo River State Park to help in the search.

    Fargo Fire Department is assisting police by doing river searches daily.

    A Prayer Walk for Greywind is scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m. at Oak Grove Park.

    Fargo Police say the newborn has been taken to Sanford and is in good health. It has been placed under protective custody of Cass County Social Services. (Some sources say the newborn is a baby girl)

    OFFICERS SAID THE TWO LIVED IN THE SAME BUILDING WHERE SAVANNA GREYWIND WAS LAST SEEN

    32-year-old William Hoehn and 38-year-old Brooke Crews were detained and interviewed after a search warrant was carried out at their apartment this afternoon.

    PREVIOUS:
    A newborn infant has been found in the apartment Greywind was last known to have been in.

    Family members said the baby is Greywind’s and named her Hazley Joe.

    Officers detained two people who live upstairs in the apartment.

    Police were still on scene late in the evening and said a baby has been found but are still looking for Savanna.

    “I was just watching TV in the bedroom with my girlfriend and heard some commotion outside,” said Christopher Miranda, a neighbor. “It was the police showing up knocking their door down and I peeked out the door, stayed inside and so I was like, okay, this is going down.”

    At around 3:00p.m., Fargo officers found a healthy, 2-day-old baby girl in the building where Savanna was last seen.

    “About 10 DCI or detectives went running in there,” said Tarita Silk, Savanna’s aunt.

    The child was transported to Sanford Hospital.

    Police received a tip of a baby crying and were able to secure a search warrant.

    They evacuated the building and detained two people.

    Her aunt, Tarita Silk, said Savanna had little contact with the upstairs neighbor who she modeled a dress for.

    The two people detained were found in a third floor apartment.

    Savanna’s family lives on the first floor.

    One neighbor said he always felt suspicious about the people living above him. “They gave me weird vibes,” Miranda added.
    He told us they’re normally are louder, but since Saturday, the two have been quieter.

    “Since Saturday, it’s been real tip-toe and they haven’t been fighting,” he said. “What’re they cooperating about?”

    TODAY:
    Greywind’s Family, Volunteers Begin Search of Buffalo River State Park

    VOLUNTEERS CAME TO THE PARK TO BEGIN SEARCHING WITH SAVANNA'S BOYFRIEND AND FAMILY MEMBERS

    Family members say they were given information that an unknown signal was detected coming from within Buffalo River State Park.
    Police in Clay County are not conducting a search there at this time, so some decided to take it into their own hands.

    Volunteers came to the park to begin searching with Savanna’s boyfriend and family members.

    Although they are unsure if the signal has any relation to Savanna’s disappearance, the community says they felt the need to help.

    Suspect in missing woman case convicted of child abuse in 2012

    The criminal history of William Hoehn, who faces a likely charge of conspiracy to commit kidnapping in the disappearance of a 22-year-old pregnant woman, includes a 2012 conviction in Grand Forks County for child neglect or abuse and a 2016 conviction in Cass County for simple assault/domestic violence.

    In the Grand Forks County case, court documents say Hoehn brought his infant son, who had a swollen head, to a Grand Forks hospital in January 2011.

    Doctors said the boy had fractures near his right ear, and authorities ruled out the possibility the injuries were caused by an accident or medical condition, according to court records.

    In that case, Hoehn pleaded guilty to child neglect or abuse, a felony, and was sentenced to 130 days in jail.

    Police say they've arrested 'the right people,' asking for public's help in search for missing woman

    Fargo Police Chief David Todd told reporters at a press conference Friday morning, Aug. 25, that police believe they have in custody the people responsible for the disappearance of 22-year-old Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind.

    “We think we have the right people,” Todd said, referring to a man and a woman who were detained and later arrested on Thursday in connection with LaFontaine-Greywind’s disappearance on Saturday.

    Todd also asked for the public’s help in searching all types of structures from garages to Dumpsters to unoccupied apartments for signs of the missing woman.

    In addition, he asked anyone with information about a particular green Grand Cherokee Jeep to let police know if it was seen since Saturday.

    Todd said it is possible LaFontaine-Greywind, who was pregnant at the time she disappeared, is not in the area, but he did not elaborate.

    He said police have some ideas on a possible motive for what they are calling a kidnapping, but he said it was too early to talk about that.

    No. :(
    I'm not one for giving up. And her family definitely shouldn't give up. But it doesn't look good.
    They were stupid enough to keep the baby in their apartment. I don't think they'd be stupid enough to leave her alive to come back home and say "they stole my baby".

    Rural sites searched for missing pregnant Fargo woman after infant found

    A full week into the search for Savanna Greywind, authorities combed cornfields and deployed specialty K-9 units from Minneapolis in hopes of finding the young pregnant woman, who went missing from her apartment building in Fargo, N.D., last Saturday.

    Investigators targeted a grove of trees and farmland about 5 miles across state lines in Dilworth, Minn., while calling for the public’s assistance in checking for clues leading to her whereabouts. Aerial and river searches have come up empty thus far.

    Detectives have gathered video from private surveillance cameras in local businesses to try and piece together where the suspects may have been in the hours before Greywind’s disappearance.

    On Friday, police asked citizens to search their garages, outbuildings and even dumpsters for evidence that might help them find Greywind.

    Authorities also said they are looking for a brown 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV with Minnesota license plate 876 EPR that might be connected to the case, Todd said. The vehicle has rust on the roof and is missing paint on the hood.

    These people who steal babies from a woman's womb just freak me out! Can you imagine? Here you are at one of the happiest times of your life, anticipating the birth of your baby. And this? It's like a macabre horror story. It seems like it just can't be real!

    Better make sure all of these kids are actually theirs...

    Fargo couple accused in kidnapping have at least 9 kids between them

    In Bradenton, Fla., Aaron Edwards, who had a child with Crews 22 years ago, said he was shocked to learn from his daughter that her mother had been accused of such a crime. To him, she was not particularly dangerous but irresponsible, not having been involved with their daughter’s upbringing for the past 19 years and not paying child support.

    He said his daughter is in touch with three other siblings who have been similarly ignored by Crews, and he knows Crews has at least three more children. “It just seemed like she was more into doing her partying, do her own thing and not have to have anything holding her back. And she wanted to go off and do what she wanted to.”

    Hoehn has at least two children of his own, one of whom he physically abused in 2011 when the boy was a baby, according to court records.



    Court records from Florida, Minnesota and North Dakota show Crews has had children by at least five men. Two of the men, including Edwards, and her eldest child, who’s now in her mid-20s, sued her for child support.

    Edwards said the courts lost track of her for a while because she didn’t seem to have a permanent address. He said she paid a total of about $600 in child support.

    She seemed to have settled down a few years ago after giving birth to her youngest children, now 12 and 14, and marrying their father, Carl Crews of Perham, Minn. Court records show they divorced in 2008, and there was a dispute over her paying child support in 2015 when the court noted she was “voluntarily unemployed.”
