"Brandon's submitting states: "[Melani's] data of the whereabouts of her aunt's two lacking kids and her unwillingness to cooperate with regulation enforcement to find these kids, is formidable to [Brandon].

JJ's mother, Lori Vallow-Daybell, told the neighbor that JJ had gone to see his grandmother in Louisiana. Police searched the couple's house and auto last month and found the children's birth certificates, Tylee's bank card and JJ's iPad, but say there's no evidence the children ever arrived in Hawai'i.

Just moments before the shot was sacked, Boudreaux allegedly spotted a rifle with a silencer come out of the rear window of a gray Jeep Wrangler, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed in Vallow's case by the Madison County Prosecuting Attorney.

Lori Vallow and her husband Chad Daybell had left Idaho after police conducted a welfare check at their home in November and were found in Hawaii in January.

Lori was finally arrested for deserting her children among other charges and is now behind bars in Hawaii on a $5,000,000 bond.

The two children, originally from Arizona, have been missing since September.

The judge has discretion to set bail, Kauai prosecutorssaid in a court filing opposing Vallow's request.

Chad Daybell is not the children's father and has not been charged in the case.

Of course, you could just go buy a Quarter Pounder , but it won't last 25 hours like these candles will. They recommend burning them all at the same time for "maximum deliciousness".

About a month after that video, on October 29, the doorbell camera footage shows another woman coming to visit Lori Vallow in the same apartment. Their disappearance captured worldwide attention after authorities pleaded for help in finding them late a year ago.

Rexburg Police contacted Kauai authorities in December for help locating the Daybells, Raybuck said during the press conference.

Vallow told a friend that Tylee was attending classes at Brigham Young University-Idaho but she was never enrolled there or at any other school affiliated with BYU, the affidavit said. When he called, Vallow gave him excuses as to why Tylee could not speak with him, the affidavit said.

Detectives are now waiting for the snow to melt in Yellowstone to search it, sources close to the investigation told CBS News.

According to court documents, Boudreaux said he saw a rifle with a silencer come out the back of a gray Jeep Wranger, which police say is registered to Lori's ex-husband, Charles Vallow. About two weeks later, Chad Daybell and Vallow married on a Hawai'i beach.

The children do not appear in the wedding photos, police said. Police asked for an arrest warrant this week, calling the couple a "flight risk". They have not been seen with children in Hawaii, police said.

Neighbors told investigators with the Rexburg Police Department that JJ had played with their son multiple times since Vallow moved into the apartment complex with her two children around September 1, KSL.com reported, citing court documents. "[Melani's] present husband has advised regulation enforcement one thing to the impact that [Melani] says typically kids are full of sunshine after which identical to that they go darkish".
