Vigil planned for Tenn. children reported missing

Posted: Updated:

UNIONVILLE (AP) - A candlelight vigil is planned for two children reported missing by authorities since their home was destroyed in deadly fire in Bedford County two weeks ago.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has an Amber Alert out for 9-year old Chloie Leverette and 7-year old Gage Daniel after investigators could not find their remains inside their home near Unionville.

Two bodies tentatively identified as the children's grandparents, 72-year-old Leon "Bubba" McClaran and his wife, 70-year-old Molli McClaran, were recovered.

WSMV-TV in Nashville reports that a vigil for the two children is planned for Sunday evening at Community Elementary School in Unionville.
