Reward increased for info on missing children

Sunday, January 20, 2013

The reward fund for information on the disappearance of two children after a house fire last year has been increased to $2,000.

The family of the late Leon and Mollie McClaran, along with friends and neighbors, have raised the reward for information on Chloie Leverette and Gage Daniel, last seen before a fire at the McClarans' Kingdom Road home on Sept. 23, 2012.

"While it was first thought the children perished in the fire, no remains were ever identified as belonging to the children and there remains hope that they may not have been in the house at the time of the fire," Bobby Maxwell, co-administrator of the fund along with Dean Felder, said in a press release Friday.

Information should be reported to 1-800-TBI FIND (1-800-824-3463).

Others can contribute through a memorial fund established in the children's name at Regions Bank in Shelbyville or Eagleville. Excess funds will be donated to the Tennessee Baptist Children's Home.
