Lori Vallow, Husband Under Investigation for Possible Murder Charges as Her 2 Kids Remain Missing

Prosecutors allege Lori “abandoned her two minor children, delayed law enforcement’s attempts to locate her children, and encouraged another individual to delay law enforcement’s attempts to locate her children.” Each felony count of desertion and nonsupport of a child carries a sentence of up to 14 years in prison if she is convicted.

In November, police say Lori and Chad “abruptly vacated” their home in Rexburg as authorities prepared to carry out search warrants tied to the children’s disappearance.

Lori and Chad subsequently were located Jan. 25 in Kaua’i, Hawaii, where police slapped Lori with a court order out of Idaho that gave her five days to turn over the kids to police or child welfare authorities. She defied that deadline, which resulted in the charges against her and her extradition to Idaho, and police said there was no sign the children were ever in Hawaii.

Police in Rexburg say they have documented several misleading statements from Lori and Chad about the kids’ whereabouts, and “strongly believe that Joshua and Tylee’s lives are in danger.”
