TLC’s Duggar Family are reportedly being investigated by the Departmend of Human Services (DHS) again.

The family has been in the news recently after reports surfaced that Josh Duggar, now an adult, sexually molested four of his younger sisters.

Now, according to InTouch, the Duggars are being investigated after DHS found reasons to be concerned about one of the minors.

A DHS representative reportedly called 911, claiming that police assistance was needed at the Duggar home.

“We have an investigation and I guess they’re not being cooperative,” the representative said on the call. “We have to see the child to make sure the child is all right. So we just need police assistance.”

The DHS refused to confirm the incident, though stressed that “child maltreatment” reports are kept confidential.

Since allegations against the Duggars first emerged, pressure has been steadily mounting, both from brands and the public, for TLC to cancel the show.
