REXBURG, Idaho — The mother of two Idaho children missing since September has yet to give their location, despite being ordered to do so.

Investigators believe that Lori Vallow, mother of missing siblings Joshua “JJ” Vallow, 7, and Tylee Ryan, 17, knows either the location of the children or what happened to them, according to Rexburg Police.

When investigators questioned Vallow, they said she and her new husband, Chad Daybell, lied to them about where the children were.

When police returned to their home in Idaho, the couple was nowhere to be found.

On Sunday, the Kaua’i Police Department announced that Vallow and Daybell had been living in Hawaii, and that they were served with a legal document the day before ordering Vallow to return the children to Idaho by Thursday.

In a press conference Thursday, Vallow was still nowhere to be seen.

The children’s grandmother, Kay Woodcock, was present.

“Show me the kids, show me the kids, show me the kids,” said Woodcock. “I still want to know where JJ is and where Tylee is.”
