Monday night Joshua Dundon was taken to a Nevada hospital for treatment and upon release he will be booked into the Washoe County Detention Facility on a warrant with a five-million-dollar bond. Additional charges are possible.  Boise Police will seek to extradite Dundon back to Idaho and the timing of Dundon’s extradition will be handled by the appropriate courts.

An AMBER Alert for two missing Boise children was issued today for Jaylynn Dundon and Madison Dundon. They were picked up from school by their father, Joshua Dundon, on Wednesday, May 10th at 10:00 a.m.   Third hand information suggested that the three may have gone camping.  Family grew concerned and called police on Friday, May 12 when no one could get in touch with Joshua.  Joshua Dundon has joint custody of the children.   

On Thursday, May 11th in Eureka, Nevada the Sheriff’s Office found a burned vehicle in a rural part of the county.  This morning, May 15, after authorities dismantled the truck and found a partial vin number, they were able to confirm that the vehicle was a pickup truck belonging to Joshua Dundon.  Deputies on scene were also able to locate multiple sets of footprints in the area. This information along with other evidence uncovered during the investigation led authorities to issue an AMBER alert.  Joshua Dundon is possibly armed.

The investigation also shows that Joshua Dundon may have taken a small dirt bike or motorcycle with him in his truck. That vehicle has not been recovered and if anyone has information about it, you are urged to contact local law enforcement. He may also be traveling with a yellow pit bull. 

For sightings of Joshua or the children, or if you have information pertaining to the investigation, please contact Ada County Dispatch at 208-377-6790 or Eureka County Dispatch at 775-237-5330. Non-emergency tips can also be called into the tip line at 208-373-5411.
