The baby was found in the Lolo National Forest following a six hour search that began with a report of a man threatening people near the Lolo Hot Springs.

After arresting the man, he told deputies that he'd left the child in the nearby forest. During the search a deputy heard a faint cry and was able to find the baby.

He's facing criminal endangerment charges and is being held on $50,000 bail.
