Reward Increased For Information About Kids Missing Since Fire
BEDFORD COUNTY, Tenn. – A reward has been increased for information about two young children missing since a deadly house fire in Bedford County last year.
There has been no sign of 9-year-old Chloie Leverette or her 7-year old brother, Gage Daniel, since the fire that killed their grandparents, Leon & Molly McClaran in September.
An Amber Alert remains active for the two kids, although the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said they do no suspect foul play. The TBI did not ask any other states to issue Amber Alerts because they simply have no evidence to show the two children were taken anywhere.
Originally, officials thought Chloie and Gage died in the fire, but numerous searches turned up nothing.
Family members of the McClarans, along with friends and neighbors, have now increased the award to $2,000. A $1,500 reward was first announced in November 2012.
