By  | 

LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ohio (WKYT) - Police have cancelled the search for a missing Ohio boy as they continue to look for a person of interest in connection to a triple murder and stabbing.

Authorities say 7-year-old Devin Holston has been found dead from a gun shot wound inside the home. Police say his body seemed to be hidden.

The endangered missing child advisory for Holston was cancelled Thursday, according to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.

Officials say three people were found shot to death inside a home off of Route 93 in Lawrence County, Ohio after another subject who was stabbed walked to a neighbors house to call for help.

Police have identified a person of interest in the case, Aaron Lawson, 23. He was last seen not far from the crime scene.

Lawson was spotted by deputies driving a Blue Chevrolet truck around 12:30 a.m. and a pursuit ensued.

Lawson crashed his vehicle into a ditch and then fled on foot. Deputies lost Lawson in a wooded area.

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are on scene.
