The Latest: Missing-child alert canceled after Ohio slayings
IRONTON, Ohio (AP) - The Latest on searches related to an Ohio triple-slaying and stabbing (all times local):
Authorities have canceled the missing-child alert for an 8-year-old boy who was sought following a triple shooting and a stabbing in southern Ohio.
The Lawrence County sheriff's office and the state attorney general's office wouldn't immediately confirm Thursday whether Devin Holston was found safe.
Authorities are searching for 23-year-old Aaron Lawson, whom they call a "person of interest."
The sheriff says deputies spotted Lawson driving around 12:30 a.m., but he ran into woods after a short pursuit in Ironton.
Hours earlier, three adults were found dead at an Elizabeth Township trailer. A fourth adult found stabbed at a nearby residence was flown to a hospital.
They haven't been publicly identified. The sheriff's office says releasing further information would compromise the investigation.
