The body of a baby who had gone missing in North Dakota has been found by police.
The search for baby Tyr and his mother Justice Lange, 25, started on Monday the 2nd of July when their concerned family requested a welfare call from Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office. At the time, because the baby and the mother were together, no Amber alert was issued, explained County Sheriff Chad Kaiser.
Early on the morning of Friday the 6th of July, Lange was found walking by a farmer who drove her to her grandmother’s home in Carrington. When Lange declared she had no memory of the past four days and didn't know where her son was, her grandmother called the police, reported Twincities.com.
Langue was taken to a hospital in Fargo for treatment for unknown injuries and told authorities the last time she had seen her son was near a slough in the area where the vehicle was found.
The Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office, Carrington Police, North Dakota Highway Patrol, Federal Game and Fish and the Bureau of Criminal Investigation initiated an intensive search that ended in the heartbreaking finding of tiny Tyr's body. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
“We did find the 4-month-old close to our search area that we were looking in. We received some better information from the mother and we were able to then locate the baby.”
Stutsman County Sheriff Chad Kaiser, Twincities.com, 7th of July 2018.
The body of the 4-month-old baby boy was found on Saturday the 7th of July in some reeds in Stutsman County around 2:30 Saturday afternoon.
Searchers found the baby in the wetlands not far from Langue's vehicle, reported Kaiser, who led the search involving more than 30 people from seven agencies to cover an 8-mile area.
The baby's body has been taken to the North Dakota State Forensic Examiner in Bismarck for an autopsy. There was nothing indicating the cause of death, but the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation is conducting a thorough investigation into Tyr Langue's death.
Justice Langue is being held on warrants emitted in Carrington County for unrelated offenses.
