'CULT mom’ Lori Vallow and her husband Chad Daybell will face charges if they don’t hand over her two missing kids in two days.
Vallow's children, who vanished back in September, were not with the couple when Kauai cops found them in Hawaii on Sunday – but police gave them an ultimatum.
Joshua "JJ" Vallow, 7, and Tylee Ryan, 17, were reported missing months ago and Vallow and Daybell's ex-spouses died in mysterious circumstances.
A court order issued to Madison County Prosecutor's Office states Vallow must physically produce her missing children in Rexburg, Idaho, by Thursday.
Authorities say Vallow could face civil or criminal contempt of court charges if she doesn't bring her kids before a judge this week.
A press release from Rexburg Police and the Madison County Prosecutor’s office confirmed the shocking news.
It said: "Lori Vallow was served with that order in the city of Princeville on the island of Kaua'i, Hawaii, on Saturday, January 25, by the Kaua'i Police Department, and that Chad Daybell was with her.
"There is no evidence that Tylee and J.J. were ever in Hawaii."
Rexburg Police Chief Shane Turman confirmed authorities were well aware the couple were hiding out in Hawaii after their sudden disappearance.
Two officers from Rexburg, a prosecutor from Madison County, and a deputy from Fremont County are in Hawaii to help out with the bizarre case, Turman said.
Vallow and her new husband were on the run since November, abandoning their Idaho home when local authorities came to question them about Vallow's missing children.
Vallow, 46, and Daybell, 51, were pulled over by cops at around 3:30 p.m. as they were riding in a black Ford Explorer along the Kuhio Highway, according to East Idaho News.
They didn't have much to say to reporters who asked where Vallow's two children were.
When the journalist said people were praying for their safe return in Idaho and elsewhere, Vallow said "that's great."
Her husband remained silent throughout the brief exchange before scowling when the reporter mentioned his late wife, Tammy.
The couple's rental vehicle pulled into the parking lot of the Kauai Beach Resort and they were put into separate police SUVs as officers searched the car.
A tow truck then took away their vehicle and the couple weren't arrested but cops combed their home in Princeville, Hawaii for answers.
Federal authorities and eastern Idaho law enforcement assisted the Hawaiian police in carrying out the warrants.
The bizarre turn of events kicked off in July Vallow's ex-husband Charles Vallow, 67, was shot dead in her Arizona home by her brother, Alex Cox.
Cox told cops he acted in self-defense because Vallow refused to back away from his sister and he was never charged for the fatal shooting.
The Idaho State Journal reports Charles Vallow filed for divorce as a result of his wife's increasingly strange behavior, however.
Court documents state she believed she was a “translated being” sent by God to lead 144,000 people into the millennium.
Vallow and her two kids then moved to Rexburg, Idaho in September where the missing kids were last seen attending school.
Daybell's wife Tammy, 49, was then found dead in her family home on October 19 – he married Vallow weeks after her death.
His wife's death was initially ruled as natural causes but her body was later exhumed for an autopsy and the results are pending, AZ Family reported.
Daybell is the author of latter day saints books about the end of the world and Vallow's family has accused the couple of being doomsday "cult" members.
Her older son Colby Ryan, posted a video to YouTube pleading with his mom to reveal the whereabouts of his missing sister and brother.
Officers initially went to their Idaho home after JJ's grandmother asked cops to conduct a welfare check back in November.
Vallow and Daybell claimed he was with other family members when officers knocked on their door – they took off before cops could investigate further.
The pair reportedly told people teenager Tylee was dead, claiming Vallow had no other young children.
Recently married Cox was found dead on December 15 but the cause of his death hasn't been established.
The couple reportedly claimed they did nothing wrong despite requests from the Rexburg Police Department and FBI to see the children.
