Smack removed his baby, who was in a car seat, and left the vehicle and walked into a marshy area. The female lost sight of him a short time later. She was then able to get the vehicle out of the ditch and drive to Fond Du Lac.

After she was unable to reach Smack on his cell for several hours, she contacted the Sheriff's Office at 2:30 a.m.

Deputies responded to the crash scene and scoured the area, but haven't been able to locate or make contact with Jordan or the baby.

The car seat was found empty in a wooded area north of the crash scene.

Deputies, multiple fire departments, EMS, drones and aircraft searched the area for hours Friday.

Around 11:15 a.m., officials announced Jordan and Serenity were located at an address in the city of Fond du Lac.

The circumstances surrounding the crash and what occurred after are being investigated by the Sheriff’s Office.
