LEADORE — Investigators with the Lemhi County Sheriff’s Office say they have developed new leads in the case of missing Idaho Falls toddler DeOrr Kunz, Jr.

“The leads were obtained from previously withheld information,” Chief Deputy Steve Penner told EastIdahoNews.com late Saturday night. “The investigation is continuing.”

Penner would not elaborate on where the new leads came from and would not say if they were in relation to a statement issued Saturday morning from Kunz family private investigator Philip Klein.

When asked if the new leads could lead to arrests, Penner would not comment.

Investigators are asking anyone with information on the case to contact them.
