Officials have issued an Amber Alert to find three missing kids believed to be traveling with a man wanted by authorities for sexual abuse of a minor and his girlfriend.

Jason “Travis” Simon has been missing from the Treasure Valley since June 2nd after fleeing with the children and their mother, Sarah Joy VanOcker-Dunn.

Simon is wanted by the Ada County Sheriff’s Office after detectives were tipped off by a third-party claiming that Simon was creating child pornography.

Detectives served a search warrant at Simon’s home in Caldwell in early June.

However, when authorities entered the home, Simon, VanOcker-Dunn, and the three children were gone.

Police believe that Simon and VanOcker-Dunn knowingly fled the home with the children in anticipation of police serving a warrant. Authorities believe that Simon and VanOcker-Dunn packed camping gear into their 2006 Pontiac Montana sports utility vehicle before leaving the home. The license plate of that vehicle is 2CJN683.

On June 10th, the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office issued a $250,000 warrant for VanOcker-Dunn. She is charged with kidnapping-custodial interference. She is 36-years-old, 5’9”, 160 pounds and had blue hair that has since been dyed red.

The three children are all between the ages of 6 and 10-years-old. The children have been identified as Lewis "Louie" Dunn, Kaylee Dunn, and Jason's son, Kaydn Simon.

They were seen in Arcata, California on 6/8/16, and Sparks, Nevada on 6/12/16. All three children are believed to be in imminent danger.

Anyone who has seen Simon, VanOcker-Dunn, or the children or has any information on the case to call Ada County Sheriff’s detectives at 577-3734 or 911.
