On Wednesday West Valley City Police Assistant Chief Craig Black said Susan's husband Josh Powell submitted a DNA sample and was interviewed by investigators on Tuesday, but that the interview did not yield any new information as to the whereabouts of Susan Powell.

Black said Josh Powell has not been "cooperative" in helping investigators locate the 28-year-old mother of two.

Black said that during the interview, Josh would only help identify her personal items while refusing to answer questions regarding her disappearance.

"As far as specific questions that would help us locate her, he would not answer those questions," Black said. "

As far as sitting down with Josh in a partnership to find his wife we have found him not to be cooperative."

Black also said that investigators asked Josh to accompany them to the camping site in Tooele County where he claimed to have taken the couples two young sons on the night Susan disappeared, and that Josh declined their request.

"He is not willing to do that," Black said. "He has his reasons but we'd hope he'd want to do that."

Black said investigators had no plans to return to the campsite unless Josh went with them.

As for any criminal investigation, Black said, "You can't have a suspect unless you have a crime. It's important that the community understands that. We have not ruled out that there has not been a crime committed. In fact, we're suspicious that there was."

Police say Josh tod them he took his two sons camping overnight on Sunday, December 6. When he returned, Susan was gone.

Now they believe a crimes been committed.

"We have not ruled out that there has not been a crime committed and in fact we're suspicious that there was," Black said.

"Everyone that has been cooperative has implied that this is unlike Susan. That in itself leads us to believe there could be foul play here."
