IDAHO FALLS — Investigation Discovery and People magazine have partnered to examine the case of DeOrr Kunz Jr. in an hour-long special called “Where is Baby DeOrr?” that will air tonight (Nov. 13).

The Idaho Falls toddler vanished in July 2015 while on a camping trip in Lemhi County with his parents, great-grandfather and a friend of his great-grandfather. There has been no sign of DeOrr since that day, and nobody has been charged in connection to his disappearance.

A producer and camera crew with People Magazine Investigates visited east Idaho in May and spent several days speaking with individuals involved in the case. The show includes interviews with Jessica Mitchell (DeOrr’s mother), Trina Bates Clegg (DeOrr’s grandmother), Robert Walton (DeOrr’s great-grandfather), Lemhi County Sheriff Steve Penner, private investigators Frant Vilt and Philip Klein, and EastIdahoNews.com reporter Nate Eaton.

The disappearance of DeOrr Kunz has been the subject of at least one other documentary and the case has been profiled on other national news programs. People published an in-depth cover story on the missing toddler in July 2016.

People Magazine Investigates “Where is Baby DeOrr?” airs at 8 p.m. MT on Investigation Discovery.
