The non-married couple, Daniel Salcido and Hannah Janiak were reported missing to the Medford Police Department on June 11th, 2019. The couple had a child together, Aiden Salcido.
The investigation indicates that the couple were involved in a burglary in 2018, which was investigated by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. The case resulted in criminal convictions and Hannah was scheduled to begin serving her sentence at the Jackson County Jail on June 11th, 2019. She did not show up for her sentencing.
Investigators began looking through Hannah’s financial records and found the last activity was on June 3rd and 4th, 2019, when two purchases were made at the Walmart on Center Drive, Medford. The purchases were caught on surveillance video, which showed Daniel, Hannah and Aiden together. The couple purchased camping equipment, among other items. Investigators were not able to locate any further financial activity.
On June 24th, 2019, felony warrants were entered in the law enforcement database for Hannah’s arrest, stemming from the burglary case. On July 15th, 2019, felony warrants were entered for Daniel, for the same crimes.

On July 25th, 2019, Medford Police Detectives learned that Kalispell Police Department, Montana, had stopped an Oregon plated green 1996 GMC Jimmy. They contacted the male driver and female passenger, who were believed to be giving false information about their identity. During the stop, the vehicle fled and led officers on a pursuit. Officers spiked the vehicle tires and the vehicle came to a stop. When the officers approached, they found both the male and female were deceased. The female was believed to have been shot in the head, and the male had an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
The deceased couple were determined to be Daniel Salcido and Hannah Janiak. Aiden was not located and there was no evidence of a child being in the vehicle.
The vehicle was determined to have been sold to an unknown person in late June / early July, in Central Point, Oregon.
Investigators are greatly concerned for Aiden’s welfare and are asking for the public’s help in locating him safely and expeditiously.
