KPD says Vallow and Daybell have been staying in Kauai'i for unconfirmed amount of time. 

On January 25th,  KPD served Vallow with an order of petition in attempt to have her physically produce her children to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. 

Vallow and Daybell have been named persons of interest in the disappearance of Vallow's children: 7-year-old Joshua Vallow and his 17-year-old adopted sister, Tylee Ryan.

Joshua and Tylee were last seen in Idaho on Sept. 23. They have not been heard from since.

Vallow and Daybell initially said the youngest was in Arizona but police believe that was a lie.

Vallow and her children previously lived in Chandler.

Vallow's former husband, Charles, was found shot to death in their Chandler home in July. Chandler police said Vallow's brother shot Charles in self-defense.

The case is still under investigation.

Authorities had executed a search warrant earlier this month on Daybell's house, where his first wife Tammy Daybell was found dead in October.

Officials say child protection orders are usually confidential and sealed to protect the anonymity of the parties, but in this case, the Madison County Prosecutor's Office got a court order allowing them to unseal certain details pertaining to the case.
