Police: Missing mom's husband hinders search

SALT LAKE CITY - December 15, 2009

West Valley City Police Capt. Tom McLachlan says Josh Powell didn't show up for an interview Monday on the advice of his attorney. McLachlan says that's costing authorities valuable time in the effort to find Powell's wife, Susan.

Susan Powell was reported missing Dec. 7 when she didn't show up to work and her children weren't dropped off at day care.

Josh Powell told police he took his two boys, ages 2 and 4, camping early that morning and returned in the evening.

McLachlan says Josh Powell is not a suspect in the case.
