BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A man wanted for questioning in the disappearance of a baby in Bismarck has been arrested on unrelated warrants.

Police say Cole Pfaff was taken into custody on warrants for failing to pay child support and fines. Bismarck Police Chief Dave Draovitch says Pfaff was the last person known to have had 7-month-old LeahMae Dawn Morsette. But, police say he is not considered a suspect in her disappearance.

The baby was brought to Sanford Health hospital Tuesday by a woman who was not identified. The Bismarck Tribune says police are still investigating what happened to the baby from the time she was officially declared missing to the time she was dropped off at Sanford — a span of about 19 hours. Her mother has been arrested on a child neglect charge.
