REDDING (CBS13) – Concerned family members and friends are searching for a Redding woman and her two great-great-grandchildren who haven’t been seen since they fled their home because of advancing flames from the Carr Fire.

Shelley Hoskison is the aunt of five-year-old James and four-year-old Emily Roberts. She says her grandmother Melody Bledsoe was at home with the kids on Quartz Hill Road when they were told to evacuate. Melody’s husband, Ed, says they haven’t been heard from since.

He says their home is now a total loss.

“I want God to help me out, help me get em,” said Ed Bledsoe.

Ed Bledsoe is frantically looking for his wife and great-great-grandchildren.

Bledsoe is torn apart, not knowing the whereabouts of his wife Melody or great-great-grandchildren Emily and James Jr. He says he’d left the house to run a quick errand when the fire was still 8 miles from his home.

“He called and said ‘grandpa you need to come, the fire is coming at our house now!” he said.

Cadaver dogs found nothing where his home once stood. He’s hoping it’s a sign that his loved ones are still alive.

Shelly contacted the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office as well as the Red Cross, but no luck.  She says Emily and James are shy, and if they’re separated, may not want to talk to strangers. She hopes someone might know the whereabouts of the three.

“I just don’t see how I can go without them. Somebody has to know where they’re at,” said Ed.
