The mother of two missing children married her husband in a photogenic beachside wedding six weeks after her two children went missing, and less than three weeks after the groom’s previous wife died.

Chad Daybell is an author of books concerned with the end of days, and family members have said he and Vallow are both associated with a so-called doomsday cult they believe has something to with a string of deaths and disappearances in their families.
Vallow’s previous husband Charles Vallow died in July 2019 after Vallow’s brother Alex Cox fatally shot him, claiming self-defense. Cox himself died in December, and authorities have not disclosed the cause or details of his death.
On October 19, Chad Daybell’s wife Tammy died at their Idaho home. Authorities initially determined she had died of natural causes, but have since re-opened the investigation and exhumed her body.
Authorities in Kauai, Hawaii, discovered Vallow and Daybell to be living there in January, without the children. A judge gave her a deadline to present her children to authorities in Idaho by January 30, but she did not comply with the order. Police have not made any arrests in the children’s disappearance, and it is unclear if Vallow is expected to face any charges.
