NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Investigators in Tennessee are trying to locate two children initially believed dead but whose bodies were not found at the scene of a farmhouse fire that killed their step-grandparents.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday issued an endangered child alert for the children, 9-year-old Chloie Leverette and 7-year-old Gage Daniel.

TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm says the agency issued the alert "under an abundance of caution."

Bedford County Sheriff Randall Boyce said investigators did find the bodies of 72-year-old Leon "Bubba" McClaran and his 70-year-old wife, Molli McClaran, as well as the remains of a dog.

Investigators said neighbors last saw the children Sunday evening, hours before a fire destroyed the home in Bedford County, about 40 miles southeast of Nashville.
