GARDENVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have classified the disappearance of a San Francisco Bay Area family of three as a homicide case.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Thursday (https://bit.ly/1KT9q8M ) that El Dorado County sheriff’s deputies removed two badly burned bodies from the family’s cabin in El Dorado County, about 70 miles east of Sacramento, after a fire was reported Sept. 13.

The cabin is owned by 37-year-old Benicia resident Adam Buchanan, who along with his wife, Molly McAfee, and their 7-year-old son, Gavin, disappeared two days earlier.

Sheriff’s officials said in a statement that investigators also found a “possible third set of remains” inside the cabin. The bodies haven’t been identified.

In the aftermath of the deadly blaze, deputies searched Buchanan’s home and office in Benicia and seized records, computers and a pickup truck.
