Family members of two missing children in Bedford County are trying to keep the case alive.
They've set up a reward fund, and they're hoping to get some answers.
There are no more detectives searching through the fire scene on Kingdom Road.
It's the place where two grandparents died, and two children went missing.
"I want to keep it out there because I don't want Chloie and Gage forgotten," says family member Mary Lamb.
Family members wait for word on what might have happened to nine year old Chloie Leverette, and her brother, seven year old Gage Daniel.
It has been more than a month since the fire, and there is still no word.
"There are many prayers going up daily for Chloie and Gage," says Lamb.
In hopes of solving this mystery, a new reward fund has been set up.
The money would go to anyone who can help locate the children.
Family members have now become convinced they were taken.
"I do believe someone knows. They know where Chloie and Gage are," says Lamb.
Family and friends have been making contributions to the fund, which is set up at Regions bank. They say money keeps coming in everyday.
But new clues in the case are hard to come by.
Investigators can find no evidence of an abduction or any other foul play.
"We've looked at all of those scenarios, and unfortunately, as of today, we're not really any closer to being able to determine where they are," says Kristin Helm with the TBI.
The TBI will keep an amber alert active until Chloie and Gage are located.
Meanwhile, their family holds out hope they'll be coming home.
"We would like some answers to all of it. We would like to have closure to all of it," says Mary Lamb.
If you'd like to contribute to the reward fund, family members tell us you can visit any Regions bank and contribute to the "Memorial Fund for Chloie and Gage."
Experts continue to test small fragments that were found in the fire just in case they could be the remains of the children.
If you have any information that can help, call 1-800-TBI-FIND.

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.
