  • Joshua's disappearance emerged in November after police responded to a welfare check requested by a relative. The couple said the boy—whom Vallow adopted and who has special needs—was with a family friend in Arizona, a story that was soon debunked. Police say the two "abruptly" left town a day after the welfare check. They are wanted for questioning.
  • Fox13 has more from the statement, which says that weeks after Tammy Daybell's death, the two "told witnesses that Lori's daughter had died a year before the death of her father, which is untrue. Around that same time Chad told another witness that Lori had no minor children."
  • Police also expressed that their "number one priority has been finding Joshua and Tylee. We have taken every step available to us, including executing multiple search warrants, interviewing multiple sources, and running down every lead we have found. We strongly believe that Joshua and Tylee’s lives are in danger."
  • NBC News has this statement released last week via the couple's lawyer, which says the pair "look forward to addressing the allegations once they have moved beyond speculation and rumor. Chad Daybell was a loving husband and has the support of his children in this matter. Lori Daybell is a devoted mother and resents assertions to the contrary."
