    Family also stated since his vehicle was’t running, he was borrowing a vehicle from someone else.

    **I’m not able to find if the borrowed vehicle was still at his residence or not...or whether AG was currently still borrowing this particular vehicle.

    Unable to link from my phone but both were found dead in the burned house. The father's body was covering his daughter according to Grand Forks Herald.

    Bodies of missing dad, 1-year-old daughter found in fire-ravaged home | INFORUM

    Prayers for all involved....
    Efforts to find and recover Gettel and his daughter’s bodies were slowed as the fire continued to smolder for most of Thursday. Hunt said two bodies recovered after the fire were sent to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Grand Forks for an autopsy.

    Authorities are still working to learn what caused the fire. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation is involved in the case.
