Bodies of missing mom, girl found

The bodies of a Tennessee mother and her oldest daughter were found behind an alleged kidnapper's house in north Mississippi, the FBI said Monday, and authorities believe the woman's two other daughters are still with the man accused in their abduction.

Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters disappeared April 27. The bodies of Bain and her 14-year-old daughter, Adrienne Bain, were found behind Adam Mayes' house near Guntown, a rural area police have been searching, the FBI said. The bodies were discovered late last week and positively identified.

The FBI said it believed Bain's two other daughters -- 12-year-old Alexandria and 8-year-old Kyliyah -- were still with Mayes.

The agency did not say in a news release why it thought that.

Mayes may be using two different aliases, the FBI said.

FBI spokesman Joel Siskovic said no further details were available on the bodies or the search for Mayes and the two girls.

Mayes, a longtime friend of Bain's husband, had stayed over at the family's house to help them pack and load up a U-Haul to drive across the country to Arizona, authorities said.

Gary Bain, who was at the house that night, awoke to find his wife, daughters and Mayes gone.

Siskovic, the FBI spokesman, said authorities talked to Mayes early on in the investigation, but he fled when they tried to contact him again.
