A “miracle baby” buried alive in the Montana wilderness for nine hours was saved when a deputy searching for him in the dark heard a faint cry and followed the noise to where the five-month-old boy was lying face down under a pile of sticks and debris.

The baby was found Sunday morning at around 2.30 a.m., having survived chilly temperatures of around 46 degrees in nothing but a soiled onesie, the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook.

He is now reportedly in a good condition with a few minor cuts and bruises.

A massive search for the baby was launched Saturday night after police received reports of a man “acting strange” and threatening people with a gun in the Lolo Hot Springs area.

When they finally managed to track down the man, 32-year-old Francis Crowley, it emerged that a baby that had been placed in his care was missing.

Police said Crowley appeared to be intoxicated and was not making sense to officers during questioning, but he hinted that the baby may have been buried “somewhere in the mountains.”

Police immediately launched a search for the baby.

Crowley was arrested on a charge of criminal endangerment, with additional charges pending, police said.

In court on Tuesday, it emerged that Crowley reportedly crashed his car that night and decided to leave the baby in the woods because he was “heavy,” USA Today reported.

Crowley said he, the child and the child's mother were all living together in a camp near the hot springs in Lolo National Forest, USA Today said.

He did not enter a plea during the court hearing and his bail was set at $200,000.
