Missing Child Alert canceled after bodies found in Brevard County burned home

A Florida Missing Child Alert was issued and has been canceled for 9-year-old Sebastian Meachum.

Meachum was last seen in the 800 block of Atz Boulevard in Malabar, Florida.

However, the Brevard County Sheriff's Office stated that its Homicide Unit is working a death investigation after they found the bodies of a female and a child inside of a home that they believed was purposely set on fire to cover a homicide. The residence was believed to be inhabited by Tony and Chrissy Hughes and Chrissy's son Sebastian Meachum. 

Officials stated that the female body that they found appeared to have been murdered before the home was set on fire. They are still looking for the body of another female, whom they believed to have been in the residence as well.

The truck and boat registered to the Hugheses was found at Chistenson's Landing with the trailer in the water, the truck running, and the boat gone. The boat was later located, unoccupied, running in circles, with what officials believe to be blood evidence inside.

There have been recent domestic issues between the Hugheses, according to authorities, but there have been no calls to the residence nor were there any injunctions in place.
