FBI desperate bid to find missing Idaho kids, release last photo of Tylee and J.J.

The FBI has released new photos of Tylee Ryan and JJ Vallow taken on the last day Tylee was seen

Authorities leading the search for two missing Idaho children are asking anyone who visited Yellowstone National Park on September 8, when the two children were their with their mother Lori Vallow and their uncle Alex Cox.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Tylee Ryan, 17, has not been seen since the September 8 trip to the national park, and her brother Joshua “JJ” Vallow was last seen later that month in September. Vallow never reported the children missing and fled Idaho with her new husband Chad Daybell shortly after police discovered the children were missing during a welfare check in late November.

In January, police discovered Vallow and Daybell living in Kauai, Hawaii, and gave Vallow a deadline of January 30 to present her missing children to authorities in Idaho. She missed the deadline, and was arrested February 20 on child desertion charges.

The Idaho Statesman reports that FBI and police in Rexburg, Idaho, have set up a website, FBI.gov/Rexburg, for people who visited Yellowstone on September 8 to submit photos and videos taken at the park that day.

The FBI has also shared photos of the family members taken that day, along with a shot of the vehicle they were driving, a  silver 2017 Ford F-150 pickup with Arizona license plate CPQUINT.

Daybell arrived back in Idaho on Thursday and is set to appear in court Friday. She remains in custody on a $5 million bond.
