RESERVATION-BODY FOUND

BILLINGS — Frustration over the death of a Native American girl in Montana should be a catalyst for speeding up the law enforcement response to reports of missing people in Indian Country, a tribal leader said. Tribal, state and national agencies should cooperate more closely on such reports, Northern Cheyenne acting President Conrad Fisher said Monday. He also said the Northern Cheyenne should pass a law standardizing its response and starting searches sooner. SENT: 450 words.

IN BRIEF:

MISSING BOY _ Authorities say a 3-year-old boy from Canada is missing after falling into a river in central Montana.

PUBLIC LATRINE ON PRIVATE LAND _ The Montana parks department says it inadvertently built a public latrine on private land, and it might be cheaper to buy the land than to move the facility.
