Deputies from the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office had been scouring the area by foot for more than six hours, searching for any sign of an infant they believed was abandoned in the mountains, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

The search began at about 8 p.m. that night, when 911 calls poured in about a man who was “acting strange” in the Lolo Hot Springs area. Callers said the man, later identified as 32-year-old Francis Carlton Crowley, was threatening people and reaching into his pockets as he claimed to have a gun, authorities said.

  Long Distance Phone Call Helps Colorado Nurses Save Newborn <p>Two nurses from Sky Ridge Medical Center were able to save the life of a newborn boy — thanks to a long-distance phone call.</p>LONE TREE, Colo. (CBS4) — Two nurses from Sky Ridge Medical Center were able to save the life of a newborn boy — thanks to a long-distance phone call.

The shivering tot was found abandoned in a storm drain. But when she got on her hands and knees she realised she could hear a baby crying from deep inside the drain. Hospital staff have called her Grace April and she has become a celebrity on the baby ward.

The church has been open around the clock as believers come to pray and to touch the crying statue. The church stayed open round the clock as people came from all over New Mexico and even as far as Texas to see what the faithful are calling a miracle .

When deputies arrived in the area, Crowley had already allegedly fled. Authorities soon learned that a 5-month-old baby, who had been left in Crowley’s care, had been missing for several hours.

Another 911 caller later led authorities to Crowley, whom they took into custody. “When trying to question Crowley, he appeared to be under the influence of drugs and was not making sense to officers,” the sheriff’s office wrote.

During Crowley’s allegedly inebriated testimony, he revealed to authorities that the 5-month old baby may be buried. He didn’t disclose an exact location, simply saying the baby was “somewhere in the mountains.”

Authorities immediately deployed an extensive search party, calling on Missoula County Search and Rescue, the United States Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Montana Highway Patrol, and Missoula County deputies to help find the missing baby.

“He followed the sound and found the baby alive, face down, buried under a pile of sticks and debris,” the sheriff’s office wrote. The baby was wearing “only a wet and soiled onesie.”

The infant, who was not identified, had been left in the 46-degree weather for at least nine hours, according to the sheriff’s office.

Republican candidate in Montana is embracing Trump. But that wasn't always the case.

  Republican candidate in Montana is embracing Trump. But that wasn't always the case. Matt Rosendale, the Republican looking to unseat Democratic Montana Sen. Jon Tester in November, is running as an unflinching supporter of President Donald Trump, welcoming the President's visit to Great Falls on Thursday. But Rosendale, the state auditor, was not always as enamored with the businessman-turned-politician as he is today. During one of the most heated periods of the 2016 Republican presidential primary, Rosendale backed Sen. Ted Cruz, signing up as a member of the campaign's "Montana Cruz Leadership Team" and showing his support for the Texas Republican multiple times on Twitter.
