BISMARCK, N.D. (Bismarck Tribune) — A Bismarck woman wanted after failing to appear in court on felony child neglect charges has been arrested in South Dakota.

Twenty-seven-year-old Dawn Morsette was arrested last June after her 7-month-old daughter went missing.

The child was dropped off anonymously at Sanford Hospital after a search by family and law enforcement.

A state warrant was issued after she failed to show up for a court hearing.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that last month a federal warrant was issued for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution after electronic surveillance by federal agents showed Moresette was at a residence on the Rosebud Indian Reservation.

She was arrested in Rosebud Feb. 6.
