Holston was entered in the National Crime Information Center as a missing, endangered child, but the office of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced that advisory was canceled around 9 a.m. Thursday after the boy was found.
The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office says the three people were found fatally shot inside a trailer on State Route 93 in Pedro, a tiny community in a remote area east of Portsmouth.
Authorities in OH had initially issued a missing child alert for an 8-year-old boy, Devin Holston, who lived at the home where the bodies were found and couldn't be located after a search of the area, but then canceled the alert.
The boy lives at the second residence, the sheriff's office said.
