Authorities find three missing Idaho children in Summit County
June 20, 2016
BOISE, Idaho — Law enforcement officials say they have found the three young Idaho children believed to be traveling with a suspected child molester.
Caldwell police announced Saturday that 10-year-old Lewis "Louie" Dunn, 9-year-old Kaylee Dunn and 6-year-old Kaydn Simon were found in Frisco, Colorado.
An Amber Alert was issued Monday for the children, nearly two weeks after law enforcement began looking for them. Police have since placed Sarah Joy VanOcker-Dunn and 37-year-old Jason "Travis" Simon in custody.
Police believed the adults left Idaho with the children after they realized detectives were looking for Simon in connection with a child pornography investigation.
Simon is charged with sexual abuse of a child, and VanOcker-Dunn is being sought on a charge of custodial interference.
Caldwell detectives will now travel to Colorado to continue the investigation.
