Kunz family: If you see DeOrr, please ask him this question
IDAHO FALLS — The grandmother of a missing toddler says if you see someone you believe is DeOrr Kunz, ask the child his name.
Trina Bates Clegg says DeOrr knows who he is and even knows the names of his parents.
“If someone comes up to my grandson DeOrr and says, ‘What is your name?’ he’s going to say, ‘My name is DeOrr Kunz,'” Trina Bates Clegg told EastIdahoNews.com during an interview.
“Please ask him his name, because he will tell you he’s smart,” Bates Clegg said. “He’s very, very smart.”
DeOrr Kunz Jr. disappeared July 10 while on a camping trip with his family in Lemhi County. Despite a continued investigation by the Lemhi County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI, no trace of the toddler has been found.
The Kunz family believes DeOrr has been abducted and has faith he’s still alive.
“If you ask him, ‘Is yours mom’s name Jessica and is your daddy’s name DeOrr, he will tell you absolutely yes,” Bates Clegg said. “If you even have a thought that it’s him, please ask him his name.”
The Kunz family spent Friday, Oct. 23, and Saturday Oct. 24, back at the Timber Creek Campground searching for missing 2-year-old DeOrr Kunz Jr. They say they’ll continue to search until their child is found.
