Brother of missing Idaho children begs mother Lori Vallow to return home after ...

The brother of two missing children has pleaded for their mother to 'do the right thing' and return home. 

Lori Vallow, who is believed to be a member of a doomsday cult, is currently on the run from police with her new husband Chad Daybell, both of whom are persons of interest in the disappearance of her children - Joshua 'JJ' Vallow, seven, and Tylee Ryan, 17 - as well as the deaths of both of their previous spouses. 

Lori's other son, Colby Ryan, delivered a message to his mother on Sunday in a seven-minute YouTube video, urging her to come out of hiding.  

'It's time to do the right thing,' he said through tears. 'I just ask you to please just listen to what I have to say. 

'I can't tell you how hurt and frustrated and confused I am about what's going on. 

'I can't even fathom that this is happening to our family. I really, really want to see Tylee and JJ. I really want this to be over.'

The FBI conducted a search of the Daybells' home in Salem, Idaho, last week to search for evidence linked to the children's disappearance and the October death of Chad's previous wife Tammy. 

Authorities confirmed on Monday that they had seized cellphones, laptops, journals and medications from the home. Those items have been submitted for forensic tests.

The search for Tylee and JJ, who have not been seen since September, began in November when police tried to do a welfare check ordered by concerned relatives.  

Idaho authorities say Chad and Lori have repeatedly lied about where their children are - initially saying the boy was in Arizona - and aren't cooperating with the investigation.
