*2nd Update* #LASD Death Investigation, Gorman Post Rd n/o 138 Freeway, unincorporated Lebec

On Wednesday, August 24, 2016, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau detectives learned the three missing children were located in a motel on the outskirts of Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The suspects left the children in the care of a Good Samaritan who in turn notified local law enforcement. 

Rylee, Brayden, and Joslynn are now safe with authorities.  We will be coordinating our efforts with the Department of Children and Family Services to arrange for the safe return of the children to California. 

The Suspects are still on the run and believed to be eastbound from Albuquerque toward neighboring states.  In addition, investigators have learned that Joshua Robertson has an infant minor child in his care.  The child is not related to the three located missing children.
