Information Harstad Family - North Dakota; Looking For Dwayne Harstad

Surnames: Harstad
My name is David and I am helping my wife do a genealogical search to find her biological father. My wife's name at birth was Denise Susan Harstad. She was born February 19, 1967 in Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Fl. We have a birth announcement from the newspaper that says her father's name is Dwayne Harstad. After doing a DNA test, it appears that my wife might be directly related to the Harstad's that started in Marrietta, MN, and later settled in Williston, and Bonetrail, North Dakota.
Ida C. (Olson) & Anton B. Harstad came from Norway and met in Marrietta, MN. They had 8 children: Myrtle, Ardin, Irene, Kenneth, Mildred, Allen, Bernice, and Melvin.
I believe that it is a possibility that Dwayne Harstad directly descends from this family. Myrtle Harstad is probably a 1st or 2nd cousin to my wife.
If you know of the Dwayne Harstad that had a baby girl named Denise in 1967, please contact me at dfishersofmen@yahoo.com.
I am going to attach a copy of the newspaper birth announcement.
Thank you,
David

I have not found information on a Dwayne Harstad, but I do find newspaper articles regarding a DUANE Harstad in North Dakota and Minnesota archives. An August, 1987, article in the Bismarck Tribune, ND, mentions a 40 year-old Duane Harstad of Dunseith.

You might expand your search for that alternate spelling of his first name.

I have attempted to find him in Fort Lauderdale archives without success.
