UPDATE:

EMMETT — The Gem County Sheriff’s Office says they believe three missing kids from Emmett could have run away.

The Sheriff’s office announced Tuesday evening that Tristan Conner Sexton, 16, Taylor Summers, 14, and Tyran Summers, 8, were all last seen in the small Idaho Town on separate dates. In September and October, Tristan and Taylor were reported as runaways.

All three were living in the same home, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Court records also indicate the children are also related.

“The focus of recent efforts has been on locating Taryn who was reported missing late afternoon on Monday,” the Sheriff’s Office said in its latest update. “Her status is that of (a) missing child due to her young age, but it is believed that she may have run away.”

Investigators have searched the area to make sure Tyran is not nearby or injured. The Sheriff’s Office is also checking to make sure Tyran is not with a friend.

“Tristan and Taylor continue to be identified as runaways and have had frequent contact with family members; they are not considered to be in danger at this time,” the Sheriff’s Office says.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Gem County Sheriff’s Office at (208) 365-3521.
