TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — For now, the two young sons of a missing Utah woman are living with strangers.

They are in state custody as the paternal grandfather they lived with in Washington state sits in jail, accused of possessing child pornography and secretly videotaping their mother, other women and naked neighbor girls.

Now, the family of their mother, Susan Powell, is for the first time publicly accusing the boys’ father of being involved in her disappearance. On Friday, they asked, for the first time, to get immediate custody of the boys, ages 4 and 6.
