TBI Says Foul Play Not Suspected in Children's Disappearance

Posted: Updated:

BEDFORD COUNTY, Tenn.- Investigators from across the state are on the lookout for two Bedford County children who were once presumed dead in a house fire.  Twenty-four hours have now come and gone since law enforcement issued an amber alert and there have still been no signs of 9-year-old Chloie Leverette or her 7-year old brother, Gage Daniel.

This story has taken many twists and turns over the last six days, and now national media outlets are traveling to Tennessee to cover the story.

Saturday night the TBI said they do not think there is any foul play involved here, but since Chloie and Gage have been missing since Monday, they decided that an amber alert needed to be issued. The TBI also told NewsChannel 5 they won't be asking any other states to issue amber alerts because they simply have no evidence to show the two children were taken anywhere.

By phone Saturday, NewsChannel 5 spoke very briefly with Chloie and Gage's father. He didn't want to say much, but he did say he thinks he'll be hearing something from authorities very soon. He wouldn't elaborate on that statement. The TBI says they don't believe either of the children's parents are suspects in their disappearance.

Originally officials thought Chloie and Gage died in the fire that killed their grandparents on Monday.

But now the TBI does not think that's the case, which is why they've asked law enforcement agencies across the state to be looking out for Chloie and Gage.

If you have any information that could help authorities find Chloie or Gage, you're asked to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
