Bumping for Chloie Leverette who would now be 17 and Gage Daniels 15 on the evening of September 23, 2012, a pair of half-siblings vanished without a trace after a fire burned down the house they lived in with their grandparents, both of whom died in the blaze.
Reportedly last seen at home at 6:30 p.m., after the fire, the remains of the McClarans pets, consisting of a poodle and a cockatoo, were discovered, but no signs pointing to the whereabouts of the half-siblings or their remains, were found
Before the blaze, 9-year-old Chloie and her 7-year-old half-brother Gage were in the custody of their grandparents, Leon “Bubba” McClarans, 72 and Molli McClarans, 70 and lived with them in the 700 block of Kingman Road in Unionville, Tennessee
The fire itself started at 9:30 p.m., burning the house to the ground. The cause of the blaze remains unknown, though the county sheriff believed it was accidental. The McClarans kept more than thirty propane tanks in the basement of the house, and evidence was found by fire officials, that tanks had ruptured, though there were no signs of an explosion
At first, those involved in the investigation believed that both Chloie and Gage also died in the fire, but examinations of the scene done by forensic anthropologists found no evidence to suggest that
Cremations occur at around 1500 degrees, but fire experts say it is unlikely the house got that hot
Moreover, after the fire, investigators spoke with the half-siblings’ mother, Cheryl Daniel, and concluded that she did not have them. Furthermore, Gage’s father was also determined to have no involvement, however a former TBI agent Brad Garrett said "statistically, children this age, over 90 percent of the time, are taken by their own parents or a close relative" so where are the Children?
Tennessee officials put out a statewide Amber Alert, to no avail
Police questioned everyone who knew the kids, but investigators said they have no suspects and aren't even sure they have a crime
The circumstances of the pair’s vanishings and the exact cause of the blaze both remain unclear
New Age progressions have been released too
