An Arkansas Department of Human Services official tells police the Duggars are not being “cooperative” in the audio of a 911 call made two weeks ago. Listen below.

As Gossip Cop has reported, the “19 Kids and Counting” family has been under scrutiny since it was revealed eldest child Josh Duggar molested four of his sisters and a babysitter when he was a teen. The sexual assaults took place a decade ago, but recently became public through police reports and legal documents. While Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have insisted they adequately handled the situation long ago, concerns apparently remain about the well-being of their current minor children (pictured above right in 2014).

A Washington County DHS worker went to the family’s home on May 27 as part of a new investigation, but was reportedly not allowed in. In the audio of a 911 call obtained by In Touch through the Freedom of Information Act, the representative tells the operator he is at the Duggar home, and they are not being “cooperative.” “We have to see the child to make sure the child is all right,” says the official. “So we just need police assistance.”

It is not clear which child’s welfare was being investigated, what sparked the inquiry, or what happened after the 911 call. The incident took place before the Duggars’ interview last week with Megyn Kelly, however, it was not mentioned on the “Kelly File” episodes. The family previously met with the DHS in 2007. If so inclined, you can hear the 911 audio below.
