NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 29, 2012)--Authorities have issued an Amber Alert for two Tennessee children who’ve been missing since a fire burned down their home five days ago, saying there is no evidence they were victims of the blaze.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued the alert Friday evening.
Investigators earlier in the day had returned to the scene of the Shelbyville house fire in which two bodies were found, tentatively identified as the children's step-grandparents.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a news release that multiple fire experts went through the debris and were unable to find evidence that Chloie Leverette, 9, and her half-brother, Gage Daniel, 7, died in Sunday's fire.
The agency issued an endangered child alert for the children Wednesday after they could not find their remains.
