As Wisconsin authorities search for missing 3-year-old Elijah Vue, scrutiny falls on his mother and a caretaker. Both adults are locked up in the Manitowoc County Jail respectively on a case for party to child neglect, and child neglect.

Authorities are largely keeping mum about it all, but a prosecutor on Friday reportedly said that the mother, Katrina Baur, 31, lied about her own whereabouts during the investigation. The co-defendant, Jesse Vang, 39, is charged because Baur had put Elijah in his care, so it was also his responsibility to make sure the boy was all right.

“She intentionally sent that child for disciplinary reasons for more than a week to the residence,” Manitowoc District Attorney Jacalyn LaBre said, according to Green Bay Fox affiliate WLUK. “She was aware of the tactics used and the lack of care provided. This was an intentional thing by her. And, on at least two occasions, during the interviews she has provided false information on her whereabout during the past week.”

Baur’s bond is set at $15,000 while Vang is held on $20,000.
