(KECI) A 5-month-old infant is recovering after spending nine hours buried under a pile of sticks and debris in the Montana wilderness.

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.

The suspect, 32-year-old Francis Crowley, has a history of run-ins with the law.

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

Cloudy skies and very light scattered showers are lingering across northern California for the start of your Wednesday, but we'll be clearing out and warming up Wednesday afternoon. We'll be sunny and warmer on Thursday, but clouds will increase Friday. More showers are looking likely Friday night into Saturday, but we'll dry out again for Halloween on Sunday.
