Police in Rexburg allege they have documented several misleading statements from Lori and Chad about the children’s whereabouts, and said the couple "abruptly vacated" their Rexburg home last November after J.J.'s out-of-state grandparents first raised concerns and police started asking questions.
The couple was located in late January in Kaua'i, Hawaii, where Lori was arrested and extradited after defying an Idaho court order to produce the children. Rexburg police have said they “strongly believe that Joshua and Tylee’s lives are in danger."
Chad has not been charged with any crimes.
Lori is being held in Madison County on a $1 million bond and charged with felony counts of desertion and nonsupport of dependent children, as well as resisting or obstructing officers, criminal solicitation to commit a crime, contempt of court and willful disobedience of court process or order for failing to produce the two kids. She has pleaded not guilty.
PEOPLE has reached out to Lori's attorney, Mark Means, about the video release, but he did not immediately respond. Lori is next due in court July 9.
