Seven-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan have not been seen since September. Their disappearance has captured attention worldwide.

Police also have said Vallow and her husband Chad Daybell have lied about the children’s whereabouts.

Her lawyers say she isn’t a flight risk and had been willing to turn herself in prior to her arrest last week.
