If you were visiting Yellowstone National Park on Sept. 8, 2019, you may be able to help the FBI find two missing Idaho children.

The FBI and Rexburg, Idaho, police are asking anyone visiting the park that date to submit photos or video to help find Tylee Ryan, 17, and J.J. Vallow, who prosecutors say were abandoned by their mother, Lori Vallow, and uncle, Alex Cox.

Investigators say the children were in the park on that day in a silver 2017 Ford F-150 pickup with an Arizona license plate CPQUINT.

Lori Vallow was arrested in Hawaii on charges related to the disappearance of the two children, which was reported in November. She was extradited to Idaho Wednesday to face those charges.
