FARGO, N.D. — The Latest on a missing Fargo woman whose newborn baby was believed to be found in a north side apartment building (all times local):
Volunteers furnished with maps, bug spray and bottled water were searching areas near the Red River in north Fargo after family and friends of Savanna Greywind organized a search for the 22-year-old, who was eight months pregnant when she went missing.
The quest to find Greywind has intensified since police found a newborn baby Thursday and arrested two suspects for kidnapping. Greywind was eight months pregnant when she disappeared. The suspects indicated to police that the infant was Greywind’s, but would not answer questions about Greywind’s whereabouts.
The search included dozens of people who came from the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation, where Greywind is an enrolled member. Stuart LaFountain (lah-FOWN’tin), a member of the tribal board, is asking people to “look into their hearts” and help find Greywind.
This version of the story corrects the spelling of LaFountain.

Fargo police Chief David Todd says authorities believe the infant is the daughter of 22-year-old Savanna Greywind, but they’re doing DNA testing to make sure. That could take several days.
Greywind was last seen at her apartment Saturday afternoon and is still missing. Authorities found the newborn in an apartment in her building Thursday.
Police late Thursday separately arrested a 32-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman who were neighbors of Greywind. Todd says the baby was found with the woman.
Formal charges are pending against the suspects. The baby is in the custody of child protective services and is being cared for in a medical facility.
