Fargo police announced Friday that they have made two arrests in connection with the disappearance of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind.
Authorities revealed that LaFontaine-Greywind’s upstairs neighbors, Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, and William Henry Hoehn, 32, were charged Thursday with felony conspiracy to commit kidnapping. In the statement, police also identified Crews as the woman who lured the pregnant woman upstairs by asking her to model a dress.
Officers originally interviewed Crews and Hoehn shortly after LaFontaine-Greywind’s disappearance. At that time, they claimed that the 22-year-old had already left. Three searches were carried out by officers originally turned up nothing.
However, authorities made an unsettling discovery Thursday afternoon, when carrying out a search warrant. Officers reportedly found a 2-day-old baby girl with Crews in the apartment. Crews and Hoehn, who was at a different location at the time, were arrested shortly thereafter.
“The infant was alive and was immediately taken to a medical facility. Our investigation thus far indicates the probability that this is Savanna Greywind’s child,” Fargo police said.
During a press conference Friday, Fargo police Chief David Todd claimed “neither Hoehn nor Crews will cooperate with our investigation” when it comes to revealing LaFontaine’s location.
Crews and Hoehn remain jailed at the Cass County Jail, according to WDAY.

As CrimeOnline reported throughout the week, LaFontaine-Greywind disappeared from her North Fargo apartment Saturday afternoon after trying on a dress for an upstairs neighbor, now identified as Crews. She was reported missing after she stopped responding to their texts and calls.
The 22-year-old is due to have a baby girl in late September.
Earlier this week, Hoehn was supposedly arrested and released for failing to pay a fine on a no contact order. At that time, authorities claimed his arrest wasn’t connected to their current investigation.
Authorities have also asked for the public’s help in locating a vehicle that is possibly related to the missing persons case. On Friday, Fargo police announced that they are searching for a brown 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee four-door with Minnesota plates 876 EPR. Specifically, they are asking anyone to step forward if they saw the Jeep between Saturday afternoon and Thursday afternoon.
LaFontaine-Greywind was last seen at her North Fargo apartment building Saturday afternoon. The 22-year-old is described as 5-foot-4 inches tall, with green eyes and long brown hair, and having tattoos on her right leg and foot. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, shorts, and Nike slip-on sandals.
Anyone with information about Savanna Lafontaine-Greywind’s whereabouts is urged to call the Fargo Police Department at 701-235-7335.
