Police have yet to find Matthew Dion, 38, who lived at the 210 Mooresville Road home with his parents, Bob and Connie Dion. Investigators released additional photographs of Dion who they said is believed to be operating a white 2009 Nissan Altima with New Hampshire registration 341-0587.
Autopsies were scheduled for Wednesday morning on the bodies, after which authorities are expected to release their identities.
Relatives of Bob and Connie Dion believe they are the victims.
Police and fire investigators remained on the scene Wednesday, where yellow police tape still cordons off the split level home. A red trailer from the state Fire Marshal's Office and the Manchester Police Department's Critical Incident Response Team truck both were parked on site.
Firefighters were inside the heavily damaged home and two were seen in the rear going through rubble.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Matthew Dion or the described vehicle is urged to call 911, or Manchester police at (603) 668-8711.
Jim Normand, a Manchester lawyer hired to represent a nephew of the Dions in a likely Probate Court case, said his client Roger Mitchell has met with investigators. Normand said the family is fairly confident the bodies, found together in the ground floor of the split level home, are those of Bob and Connie Dion.
"The million-dollar question is, 'Where is my cousin?'" said Michael Mitchell. Family members have said that Matthew Dion lived at the house along with Michael Focosi, the teenage son of Dion's fiance.
The fire and discovery of the bodies are part of investigations that involve Manchester police and fire officials, the state Fire Marshal's Office and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
The fire was called in at 2:37 p.m. Monday by people who said they heard an explosion.
Rundles said authorities have interviewed family members, who have been cooperative in the investigation. Family and friends of the Dions have also spoken to reporters.
