SALT LAKE CITY — Lori Vallow Daybell, the Idaho woman who has been the subject of national attention since the September disappearance of her two kids, will make her first court appearance in Rexburg later this week.

Daybell will be in Madison County Court in Rexburg at 2 p.m. Friday, according to the Madison County (Idaho) Sheriff’s Office.

Daybell has been held on $5 million bail on the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i since Feb. 20. She was arrested that day in the town of Princeville for investigation of desertion and nonsupport of dependent children, resisting officers, criminal solicitation and contempt of court.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office did not provide any information about when or how she will travel back to Idaho, citing safety concerns.

Daybell’s children, 7-year-old J.J. Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan, vanished from Rexburg in September. Their disappearances have led to a months-long investigation and search, as well as nationwide attention from media outlets and members of the public.
