Madison County Prosecuting Attorney Rob Wood declined to comment on the warrant.

Monday’s investigation marked the third known time Rexburg Police have searched Daybell’s property. Monday’s search was was on a much lower-scale than the warrant served at the same residence on June 9. 

At that investigation scene dozens of officers flanked the home and surrounding roads were closed for two days as Daybell’s property was excavated and police chillingly discovered the remains of Joshua ‘JJ’ Vallow, eight, and Tylee Ryan, 17.

The return to search the home is likely related to the discovery of the children.

However, the Attorney General’s Office and Fremont County Sheriff’s Office are still investigating the death of Chad Daybell’s wife Tammy Daybell, who mysteriously died at the Salem home in October.

Chad Daybell, 51, was arrested on June 9 and charged with two felony counts of destruction, alteration or concealment of evidence.

The harrowing discovery ended the desperate search for the missing children after Both kids had been missing for nine months, last seen in September 2019.

The last known sighting of 17-year-old Tylee was on September 8, when she visited Yellowstone National Park with her family. JJ, who would have turned eight last month, was last seen two weeks later on September 23. 

During the previous raid on January 3, authorities removed 43 items from the home and combed over several sections of the yard with metal detectors and rakes. 

On June 9 Chad Daybell was arrested and charged with two felony counts of destruction, alteration or concealment of evidence.

The children’s mother, Lori Vallow Daybell, has been in jail for the last four months, charged with desertion of children and three misdemeanors. Both remain in jail on $1million bail.

Daybell’s preliminary hearing is set for July 1 after he entered a not guilty plea on two felony counts of destruction of evidence. His wife also pleaded not guilty and her preliminary hearing is set for July 9.

She and Chad – the prolific Doomsday author, alleged cut leader and former grave digger whom she married less than two months after her kids vanished – have repeatedly refused to say where the children are but insisted that they were safe. 

Authorities began searching for the children in late November after performing a welfare check ordered by concerned relatives who said they hadn’t spoken to seven-year-old JJ, who is autistic, in months.

When officers first went to Lori’s home in Idaho on November 26, she told them that JJ was visiting relatives in Arizona – which investigators say was a lie.  

Officers returned the following day and found that Lori and the man she married weeks earlier, Chad Daybell, had fled from the home.  

Authorities say the couple have repeatedly lied about where JJ and Tylee are and refused to cooperate with the investigation.
