    Sorry, title should say MalabaR.

    More (awful) info: http://www.wftv.com/news/local/missi...fire/532273892

    "The FDLE says Tony and Chrissy Hughes may be traveling by boat.

    The couple's boat is described as an 18-foot 2012 Nautic Global Group model with tag number 3066PJ.

    Law enforcement officials advise anyone seeing the Hugheses to not approach them and call police."

    I don't get that either. They appear to have been the property owners. It seems sadly more likely that the local sheriff's office is correct as quoted in this article:

    "But officials say it’s possible the family might not be missing.

    “It’s certainly a possibility that they could be inside the home and there could be more victims inside since the fire department hasn’t searched that far into the house,” Goodyear said.

    Sebastian Meachum, 9, is believed to be in the company of Tony Hughes, 39, and Chrissy Hughes, 39. If you see them call 911. (FDLE)

    Here's some original info on the fire:

    "My neighbor heard three or four booms. They sounded like a dump truck bed slamming. Next thing you know, it went up in flames," Atz Road resident Dave Harding said.

    Residents said they heard several loud popping sounds and saw flames coming from the house.

    The Florida Missing Child Alert was established in 2003 to provide law enforcement with a tool to quickly disseminate information when a child is missing and believed to be in life-threatening danger, but there is no indication that the child has been abducted.

    https://www.fdle.state.fl.us/MCICSearch/MCApage.asp

    My guess is LE believes there is something "off" about the fire.

    I'd like to think perhaps they've gone camping or something due to the beginning of summer break, and don't even know they're missing.

    I wonder if the victim found in the burned house was a parent of the boy.

    Abandoned boat found in ocean from Malabar, officials said


    An unoccupied 18-foot boat found going around in circles 7 miles off the coast Sunday was from Malabar in southern Brevard County, a U.S. Coast Guard spokesman said Monday.Authorities haven't yet said if it could be connected to the search for a 9-year-old Malabar boy who is missing following a fatal house fire Sunday morning.
    The Brevard County Sheriff's Office is to give an update on its investigation later Monday.

    Actually now they're saying it's a Grady White, basically unsinkable boat, found circling in the ocean 7 m out. Challenging to go out that inlet (Sebastian Inlet) unless you've got experience. We live a block (over a mile) north of this house. Monday AM and fire, police and CSI are all there, road closed at intersection. Wish there was some way to get more news.

    Awful, awful news:

    "During a recovery search of the home, fire crews discovered the remains of an adult female and a child within the home.

    Officials said a preliminary examination of the female victim revealed trauma that indicates the female was killed prior to the start of the fire.

    According to witness statements, there have been some recent domestic issues between Tony and Chrissy Hughes."

    The child's remains found in the house is female. Little boy still missing.

    Per your article-
    The Brevard County Sheriff's Office is continuing the death investigation into a fire that occurred Sunday at a Malabar residence.

    I haven't seen any article that indicates the sex of the child found in the home. From the article I linked to: "During a recovery search of the home, fire crews discovered the remains of an adult female and a child within the home."
