The FBI wants to find 35-year-old Adam Mayes more than ever, after two bodies were found in a home where he had been staying near Guntown, MS.The search was carried out at his residence after a warrant was granted to do so, and the bodies were discovered.
Adam Mayes is charged in Tennessee with abducting Jo Ann Bain, 31, and her daughters, Adrienne, 14, Alexandria, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8, all of Hardeman County, Tenn., who were last seen Friday.
“It was based on finding those two bodies that initiated the Amber Alert with concern of extreme danger to the children,” said FBI spokesman Joel Siskovic.
It is worth noting that the mother, Jo Ann Bain, has been removed from the Amber Alert.
The FBI said the Bains were reported missing by the woman's husband and her vehicle was later found abandoned.They were last seen April 27 in Hardeman County, Tenn., which is about 70 miles east of Memphis.
The FBI is not saying whether or not those bodies belong to the missing family, only that they’ve sent them to the medical examiner’s office to be identified.
Siskovic said authorities talked to Mayes early on in the investigation, but he fled when they tried to contact him again.
“A warrant for especially aggravated kidnapping has been issued. He is a wanted person,” said Siskovic. “He is believed to be armed and dangerous and we do not know where he has gone.”
Authorities said Mayes may have cut his hair, as well as cut and dyed the girls' hair to disguise their identities.
Authorities were still trying to determine if Jo Ann Bain went with Mayes willingly.
