DeOrR Kunz, two years old, was with his family at a campsite in Idaho on July 10, 2015, but he did not come back. The family members have been thought to be involved for a long time, but no proof has ever been found. The painter and his family and some friends went camping. They went for a walk because they thought his grandparents were following him. When they came back, the little boy wasn’t there.
The area where DeOrr went missing is very, very far away, and the only way to get there is along a rough dirt road.
Details of Case
A mother goes camping with her two-year-old son, DeOrr Kunz Jr., without planning to. The trip ends tragically when she reports him missing from the Timber Creek Campground near Leadore, Idaho (about ten miles west).
Since then, the police and their former private investigator have been calling the parents suspects because they have tried to lie so many times. But there isn’t a lot of proof, and neither parent has admitted guilt. DeOrr Kunz Jr. has faded into obscurity, leaving people who used to like him and his family wondering why he has left them.
DeOrr Jay Kunz Jr. was born on December 30, 2012, in Idaho Falls, Idaho. His parents are Jessica Mitchell and Vernal DeOrr Kunz Sr. They called him “Little Man,” which is what they gave him. He was a normal kid with a huge zest for life. He was always happy, interested, and ready to have fun.
Mitchell and Vernal decided out of the blue on July 10, 2015, to go camping. It was then that she invited her grandfather Robert Walton, who was staying with the couple. Issac Reinwand, who was friends with Walton, went on the trip with them even though he had said before that he had never met DeOrr or any of Walton’s invited guests.
Five people piled into the truck, hooked up the camper trailer and drove to Leadore for two hours. They drive an extra 40 minutes to the Stage Stop in Leadore instead of stopping at the campground. There, they say, the store clerk saw them with their son.
Later questioning, though, showed that the clerk had seen a blonde boy at 6:00 p.m. that night, not between 1:00 and 3:00 a.m. as the parents had told the police. Even though Vernal Kunz said the clerk was “mistaken” in the future, his words are still being looked into.
Mitchell, Vernal, and DeOrr set up chairs and lit a fire in the fire pit when they got to the campground, even though it was going to be over 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26 degrees Celsius) that day. While that’s going on, Walton says he left the door to the caravan open by accident, so he opens it and takes a break inside.
Reinwand says that he went fishing in a nearby body of water soon after getting there, but he came back when the child was reported missing.
Mitchell says that when Jessica and Vernal were done with their work, Jessica yelled at her grandfather that they were leaving DeOrr behind to look into the grounds. Walton, on the other hand, said he didn’t know what his parental duties were and that he had never heard Jessica’s call.
DeoRr’s family would notice he was missing in thirty minutes and think he had been taken.
The 911 Call
The mother’s 911 call was made public: “My 2-year-old son, we can’t find him…” PRESIDENT – The 911 call from where 2-year-old DeOrr Kunz was first seen by the Lemhi County Sheriff’s Office has been made public.
People say that the short (a little over four minutes) 911 call doesn’t have the sobbing grief that you would expect from a parent whose child has just been kil*led. Many people think that Mitchell has admitted guilt because she doesn’t seem to care about anything, but it’s also possible that she is still shocked.
Vernal, DeOrr’s dad, is calling 911 in the background of Mitchell’s call.

Lemhi County Sheriff Lynn Bowerman named Jessica Mitchell and Vernal Kunz Srinconsistent as suspects in the disappearance of their son DeOrr in January 2016 based on what they said during the investigation.
A lot of people have been thought to be responsible, but no one has been caught yet. DeOrr is known to be “missing” at this point.
