In the case of missing Utah mother Susan Powell, husband Josh has been named as the sole person of interest. He has refused to cooperate with authorities in providing details that may lead to Susan’s rescue. The only statement he has told authorities is that he took his young boys camping in the frigid desert the night Susan disappeared.

Now, Josh Powell is gathering the children and moving to Washington state, about 800 miles away. West Valley City Assistant Police Chief Craig Clack said there is nothing they can do to stop him. “Josh has been free to come and go. And we’re still waiting for Josh to cooperate with us and talk with us.”

Josh’s actions have sparked concern and suspicion among family members. “We’d like to see him here helping out with Susan’s search,” Joshua Powell’s brother-in-law, Kirk Graves, said. “But he’s not.”
