LORI Vallow, whose kids have been missing for more than four months, abandoned children's items in a storage unit before heading to Hawaii, it was reported.
Video has emerged which shows the 'Cult mom' and a man thought to be her brother at the facility shortly after seven-year-old JJ and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan were last seen in September.
Vallow and her husband, doomsday author Chad Daybell have been living in Hawaii for weeks as the search for the kids continues.
She rented a $53-per-month unit near her home at the Self Storage Plus in Rexburg on October 1.
Footage obtained by East Idaho News shows Vallow and the man, believed to be Alex Cox, dropping off gun cases and bikes at the facility at the end of November.
Surveillance cameras show her and the man visited nine times in October and once in November.
Vallow and a man were seen on camera on November 24 and two days later cops went to her house to check on JJ's welfare.
On November 27, they obtained a warrant to search the storage unit.
Officers found bikes, a scooter, winter clothing, sports equipment and an assortment of photos of JJ and Tylee in the unit.
The case has captured national attention with the revelations that police were also investigating a string of deaths surrounding Lori and Chad.
The first death is that of Lori's fourth husband and JJ's adoptive father Charles Vallow, who was shot dead by her brother, Alex, in Arizona on July 10.
Police initially determined that Alex acted in self-defense.
On December 12, Lori's brother, Alex Cox, was found dead in Gilbert, Arizona.
The 51-year-old's death is now under investigation as police wait for an autopsy to determine the cause.
The police department previously demanded Vallow and Daybell cooperate with their investigation last month.
Their December statement read: "We strongly believe that Joshua and Tylee’s lives are in danger."
Vallow and her husband issued a statement via Idaho lawyer Sean Bartholick denying the accusations.
It read: "We look forward to addressing the allegations once they have moved beyond speculation and rumor."
Daybell is a member of the Latter Day Saints Church and Vallow's family members accused them of being in a "cult."
His books describe his belief he can see the future after an accident at 17.
The descriptions claim the incident "caused his 'veil' that separates mortal life from the Spirit World to stay partially open."
