Lori Vallow has been charged with two felony counts of desertion and nonsupport of dependent children, resisting or obstructing police officers, criminal solicitation to commit a crime and contempt of court; all in connection with the disappearance of her two minor children, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan, and 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow, in late September 2019.

The 46-year-old allegedly lied to Idaho authorities about her children’s whereabouts, then disappeared herself. Eventually located in Hawaii, Vallow was then ordered by an Idaho court produce the children by January 30, but failed to do so. She was arrested in Kau’i on February 20, 2020, on a $5-million-dollar warrant.

“Nothing that she’s doing is in any way indicative of a parent who just has her children safely tucked away,” says Vallow’s former sister-in-law, and Tylee’s aunt, Annie. She claims she noticed a major personality shift in Lori Vallow in 2018, saying, “She had this fixation on the end times.”

Noting that she perceived a marked lack of empathy from her former sister-in-law, Annie also claims that when her brother - Lori Vallow’s third husband - Joseph Ryan, died suddenly in 2018, Vallow didn’t tell her - or the rest of her family - until weeks after the fact. According to authorities, JJ Vallow was last seen at school on September 23, 2019, but Annie says no one can say for certain when Tylee was seen or heard from, “And it just feels like Tylee – like her dad – just slipped away.”

And later, when Dr. Phil asks Annie where she thinks Lori’s children are today, how does she respond?
