FARGO, ND—It has been a harrowing week for a Native family in Fargo, North Dakota. Since Saturday, August 19th, 22-year-old Savanna LaFontaine Greywind has been missing.
At the time of her disappearance, she was 8 months pregnant, looking forward to bringing a new life into the world. This morning, authorities announced that after executing a search warrant, Ms. Greywind’s days-old baby girl has been found in an upstairs neighbor’s home in the same apartment building where Greywind resides with her parents. Greywind had last been seen on her way up to the neighbor’s apartment, where the female resident had asked Greywind for assistance with sewing a dress. When Greywind didn’t return several hours later, her family reported her disappearance to the police.
