Amber Alert issued for Bedford County kids once thought dead

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

An Amber Alert has been issued for two children previously thought to have died in a house fire Sunday night in Bedford County.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday issued an endangered child alert for nine-year-old Chloie Leverette and seven-year-old Gage Daniel.  The alert was upgraded to an Amber Alert Friday evening.

The children lived with their grandparents, 72-year-old Leon McClaran Sr. and 70-year-old Molly McClaran, at their home located at 730 Kingdom Road in Unionville.

The home was destroyed in Sunday's fire.  The grandparents' bodies were recovered on Monday, but investigators have been unable to find evidence the children perished in the blaze.

The TBI said Friday after an extensive, five day search, multiple fire experts have processed the scene and are unable to locate evidence that Chloie and Gage were victims of the fire.

Their whereabouts are not known.

The TBI is awaiting autopsy results on the McClarans to determine the cause of death.

The cause of the fire was not immediately released.

Anyone with information on Chloie's and Gage's whereabouts is urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
