The reward fund for information on the disappearance of two children after a deadly house fire in Shelbyville 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. The children were last seen before a fire at the McClaran's Kingdom Road home on Sept. 23, 2012. The McClarans, the children's grandparents, were killed in the fire.
"While it was first thought the children perished in the fire, no remains were ever identified as belonging to the children and there is still 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).

Former Dyer County constable sentenced to prison
May 23, 2013 12:50 GMT
DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Dyer County Constable Derick Shane Hundley has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison.
The State Gazette (http://bit.ly/14UHydd ) reported Hundley was sentenced Monday after earlier entering a guilty plea to enticement of a minor through electronic means. The government dropped a child pornography count.
Prosecutors said Hundley, who is 30, used a cellphone to try to entice a minor female to have sex with him. Police arrested Hundley last July and found an external hard drive that contained numerous images of minors involved in sex. He resigned from the constable post he had won in 2010 after his arrest.
