*UPDATE – As of June 28th at 2 pm*
From the Medford Police:
The Medford Police Department has learned from Montana authorities that a deceased two year old, believed to be Aiden Salcido, has been located in a remote area of Montana. Positive identification has not been made, however the decedent was located in the same area that Hannah Janiak and Daniel Salcido were seen by several witnesses days earlier.
Witnesses called in tips after seeing the story break on the news and were instrumental in helping to locate a remote camp believed to have been occupied by Janiak and Salcido. The cause and manner of death will not be disclosed until an autopsy can be conducted next week in Montana.
The Medford Police Department would like to express condolences to our local families of those involved and we appreciate the cooperation that we received. The Medford Police Department would also like to express gratitude to our local media for quickly disseminating this story in an effort to locate Aiden.
Detectives from our agency will be returning to Medford and authorities in Montana will continue to lead the investigation.

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) – The FBI and police in Medford, Oregon are asking for the public’s help to find the 2-year-old child of a couple found dead in an apparent murder-suicide in Montana.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the driver of a vehicle with Oregon plates fled from police in Kalispell, Montana Wednesday night.
After police stopped the vehicle using spikes, they found Hannah Janiak and Daniel Salcido dead inside.
Police say their child, Aiden Salcido, was not in the vehicle and there was no evidence he had been.
The couple was reported missing July 11 after Janiak failed to appear to begin serving a jail sentence for burglary.
Janiak’s last financial activity happened in early June when all three were seen making purchases including camping equipment at a Medford Walmart.
Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 541-774-2258 and reference case 19-10842.
