The FBI tells the AP that 2 bodies have been found near Jackson, MS. on Saturday. The bodies were found in a residence associated with Adam Mayes, age 35. Mayes is charged in Tennessee with abducting Jo Ann Bain and her 3 young daughters, ages, 8, 12, & 14. Police said he is, “armed and extremely dangerous.”
Police said they were not able to positively identify the bodies and would not say if the victims were children.
The missing girls are 8-year-old Kyliyah Bain, 12-year-old Alexandria and 14-year-old Adrienne. They were last seen April 27 in Hardeman County, Tenn., which is about 70 miles east of Memphis. The woman’s husband reported her missing and her vehicle was found abandoned.
Authorities were still trying to determine if Jo Ann Bain went with Mayes willingly. He was last seen Tuesday in Guntown, Miss., about 80 miles southeast of Hardeman County, Tenn. He’d been described as a family friend.
Police said that Mayes could be in Mississippi but that he has ties to Arizona, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.
There is a $50,000 reward in this case.
Both MS and TN issued Amber Alerts on Saturday.
Authorities described Adrienne as a white girl with brown hair and eyes. She’s 5 feet 4 inches tall and 129 pounds. Alexandria has brown hair and hazel eyes and is 5 feet tall and 105 pounds. Kyliyah has blonde hair and brown eyes and is 4 feet tall and 57 pounds.
Mayes has brown hair and blue eyes and is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds.
However, authorities said Mayes may have cut his hair, as well as cut and dyed the girls’ hair to disguise their identities.
