When the deputies were en route to the scene, emergency dispatchers received more calls stating that the man was threatening people and saying he had a gun, authorities said.

When police showed up, the suspect wasn't there, according toKPAX-TV (Missoula), but callers informed police that a five-month-old baby who had been left in his care hadn't been seen in several hours.

Eventually, Crowley returned to the hot springs and was apprehended.

The man indicated to authorities that the baby was possibly buried somewhere in the mountains.

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 press release.

A 5-month-old infant was recovering on Tuesday after being buried alive in cold western Montana woods for about nine hours, and a 32-year-old man was in custody on charges of criminal endangerment, police officials said.

The baby was taken to a Montana hospital for treatment and was listed in good condition Sunday. Crowley appeared to be under the influence of drugs, authorities said.

That began a multi-agency search-and-rescue effort, helped by Missoula County Search and Rescue, the United States Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Montana Highway Patrol, and Missoula County deputies. For those of us with children, it hits especially hard to know what this small baby endured in the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, police have charged Crowley with criminal endangerment and said additional charges are forthcoming. Eventually, a deputy heard the baby cry at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

The child was clothed only in a wet and soiled onesie in 46 degree weather for at least nine hours, officials said.

The nature of Crowley's relationship to the baby was not immediately clear.

A 5-month-old baby was in good condition at a Missoula County, Mont. hospital Sunday morning after being rescued by police who responded to calls of a man who was "acting unusual". "Sheriff McDermott would like to thank those who assisted in the search and those who called 911, helping first responders bring this baby to safety", the department wrote on their Facebook page.
