FBI, Rexburg Police Seek Images in Missing Children’s Case

The FBI and the Rexburg (Idaho) Police Department are asking that visitors to Yellowstone National Park on September 8, 2019, submit any photos and/or video that may assist in the investigation into the disappearance of 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old J.J. Vallow.

An ongoing investigation has determined that the children were in Yellowstone National Park on that date with their mother, Lori Vallow, and uncle, Alex Cox. The group was traveling in a 2017 silver Ford F-150 pickup, with Arizona license plate CPQUINT. Below are photos of the Tylee Ryan, J.J. Vallow, Lori Vallow, and Alex Cox, that were taken in the park on September 8, 2019, as well as pictures of the vehicle.

Law enforcement is seeking photos and/or video that may have captured images of these persons and the vehicle, or images of crowds and other park visitors where these individuals may be present. The FBI has established a website for the public to upload photos and video at fbi.gov/rexburg.

The public is asked to continue reporting tips in this case to the Rexburg Police Department at (208) 359-3000 or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 (1-800-THE-LOST).
