The grandparents of JJ Vallow, who had been missing for months, visited the Idaho property where their grandson's remains were found.

A vigil is being held Friday from 8:30-9:30 p.m. in the field next to Soda Tsunami located at 3460 S. 25th in Idaho Falls. East Idaho News also reports a memorial for the children has been setup at Porter Park in Rexburg.

Human remains were found at the Fremont County property that belongs to Chad Daybell, the children's stepfather.

Larry Woodcock says they are relieved that JJ and his adopted sister, Tylee Ryan, can now be laid to rest and his grandson is with his father who was shot and killed last year.

“I know JJ's with his daddy," Woodcock said.

Seven-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan were last seen in September.

Daybell, the husband of the children's mother, Lori Vallow, was taken into custody after human remains were found on his property

Daybell is being held on a $1 million bond.
