BOISE – An Amber Alert has been issued for two girls who police say are in danger and were last seen with their father.

Jaylynn Dundon, 6, and Madison Dundon, 7, were checked out of their elementary school by their father, Joshua Dundon, 29, on Wednesday, May 10. Authorities say Joshua told witnesses he planned to take the girls camping near Arrow Rock Reservoir, which is about an hour’s drive east of Boise.

When the family failed to return, the Boise Police Department began a missing persons investigation that revealed the girls’ lives are endangered.

On Thursday, May 11, Joshua’s truck was found burned in Eureka County, Nevada, which is about a six-hour drive from Boise. Authorities were unable to identify who owned the truck because of its condition, according to an Idaho State Police news release obtained by EastIdahoNews.com.

Investigators say that same day, witnesses saw a man walking away from the truck and speaking with a female who was not visible but could be heard. Police have not released the age of the female.
