    NC - Calandra McLean, 42, & TaShonna Cameron, 13, murdered, Sanford, 13 July 2015

    Tobias McLean

    Family worried for missing teen after mom, sister found dead
    SANFORD, N.C. — Joann Jackson had one request Tuesday afternoon. "Please call the police if you see this teenage boy," she said.

    Jackson's 17-year-old grandson, Tobias McLean, hasn't been seen since his mother and sister were found dead inside a burning Sanford apartment Monday night.

    Sanford police were searching for Tobias' stepfather, Billy Jo McLean, of 916 Clark Circle, who is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his wife, Calandra McLean, and her 13-year-old daughter, Tashonna Cameron.

    Jackson, the mother of Calandra McLean, believes Tobias may be with his stepfather. Police would not comment Tuesday on the boy's whereabouts, nor did they issue an Amber Alert.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Jackson described Tobias as a kind, young man who never met any strangers. He was active in his high school JROTC program, and like his mother and sister, had a bubbly personality.

    Doesn't it seem like you can tell he is a good kid just by looking at his radiant photo above? He is in big trouble now and I beg the Lord to please take care of this poor child

    Tobias FB (not much there, but some different pictures of him)

    Deceased Mother (Calandra) FB (many good photos - also look at the August 2011 posts forward - many posts of overcoming a great struggle in her life, and she speaks openly and frankly about it and how she was using her faith to stay on her path). It is so sad her life ended the way it did

    Stepfather FB - note he lists living in Washington DC, wonder if he has returned there?

    I hope someone recognizes Tobias and stepfather from their photos and LE is able to help Tobias before another tragedy occurs.

    Some people are just a special kind of crazy. Praying that Tobias McLean is alive.

    http://abc11.com/news/new-details-in...ughter/852913/
    According to the criminal complaint, the apartment suffered smoke and minor fire damage. Calandra's body was found bound with duct tape and the child's body was found in a bathtub. There was no sign either had been shot.

    The complaint says Billy Jo McLean, 54, is believed to have kidnapped Calandra's 17-year-old son Tobias. He was last seen driving a 2001 Ford Windstar van. The complaint says the boy needs medication which he does not have.

    Missing Sanford man, teen could be in D.C. area

    Law enforcement officers believe McLean kidnapped his stepson, who is mentally challenged and in need of medication, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court. However, police did not issue an Amber Alert.

    Calandra's cousin, SA, said security video showed McLean telling Tobias to get into his van. Allen said Tobias was diagnosed with ADHD, or attention deficit disorder.

    "(Officers) felt that because there was no physical force, Tobias had something to do with this," she said. "There is no way he would have left his mother or sister if he would have seen this man irate. He would not have moved."

    Sanford teen escaped as stepfather slept

    The elder McLean told his stepson they were taking a road trip and forbade use of Facebook as they made their way across the country, Tobias told employees at the Windy Cow Cafe in Windorado, Texas. It was only after Tobias got out his phone to access the cafe's offer of a free dessert that he learned of the chaos happening at home.

    "He got very emotional. He started shaking," said DD, owner of the Windy Cow. "Tears were coming down his cheeks, and he immediately said, 'Call 911.'"

    Tobias McLean was being looked after by Oldham sheriff's deputies until the family could make arrangements for him.
    I'm glad Tobias has extended family for the love and support that he needs now.

    Poor sweet boy. I didn't think he was going to be found safe. So glad he was but he needs a lot of love and support now.

    From November:

    http://www.wral.com/death-penalty-so...hter/15113824/

    Prosecutors said Monday that they plan to seek the death penalty against a Sanford man charged with killing his wife and stepdaughter in July.
    Earlier this month:

    http://www.wral.com/autopsy-sanford-...laze/15217863/

    A Sanford woman and her daughter, whose bodies were found in a burned-out home last summer had been strangled before the house was set ablaze...

    The medical examiner found no evidence of smoke inhalation in Calandra McLean or Cameron, according to the autopsy reports, indicating they were dead before the fire. There was evidence both had been strangled, and duct tape was found wrapped around Calandra McLean's mouth and was used to bind her hands behind her back, one report states.

    On Monday, Gilchrist denied a motion by Billy Jo McLean to change counsel, court employees confirmed, although attorneys discussed the motion outside of the public's view.

    McLean is charged with murdering his wife, Calandra McLean, and his 13-year-old stepdaughter, Tashonna Cameron, on July 13, 2015. Authorities reported McLean bound his wife with duct tape, set their Clark Circle home on fire, kidnapped his stepson, Tobias McLean, and fled to Texas.
