This combination of undated file photos released by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children show missing children Joshua Vallow, left, and Tylee Ryan. Investigators returned Tuesday, June 9, 2020 to search the Idaho home of a man with ties to the mysterious disappearance of the two children who haven't been seen since last year. It's the second search of Chad Daybell's home in a case that has vexed investigators for months and attracted worldwide attention. Seven-year-old Joshua "JJ" Vallow and Ryan, 17, haven't been seen since September, and police say both Chad and Lori Daybell lied to investigators about the childrens' whereabouts.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) – Relatives of two children missing since September have told media outlets that the bodies of two kids uncovered in rural Idaho are the young boy and his big sister.

Authorities haven’t released the identities of the bodies discovered on the property of Chad Daybell, who married the children’s mother, Lori Vallow Daybell. But Joshua “JJ” Vallow’s grandfather told the Post Register in Idaho Falls that “both children are no longer with us.”

He also referred to 17-year-old Tylee Ryan. Extended family members of both children sent a joint statement to Phoenix television station KSAZ-TV confirming the deaths.
