(Union County, MS) The investigation is unfolding into the disappearance of the Bain family, a mother and her three children.
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.
Investigators became suspicious of Mayes when they lost contact with him on Tuesday.
“We executed some federal search warrants at some residences he’s been known to stay at,” said FBI spokesperson, Joel Siskovic. “At that time, during the search, we did find two bodies at that location.”
The FBI is not saying whether or not those bodies belong to the missing Hardeman County family, only that they’ve sent them to the medical examiner’s office to be identified.
“It was based on finding those two bodies that initiated the Amber Alert with concern of extreme danger to the children,” said Siskovic.
It is worth noting that the mother, Jo Ann Bain, has been removed from the Amber Alert.
All the FBI would tell News Channel 3 is the house is located near Guntown, MS. However the house is believed to be on Highway 9 near Alpine, MS. U.S. Marshals were there investigating Saturday afternoon.
“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.”
The FBI says they believe Mayes made changes to hide identities.
“We do have information that he has altered the appearances of everybody including himself, primarily from cutting their hair,” said Siskovic. “The girls my have far shorter hair than the pictures that are out there.”
The FBI says if they can find Mayes then they’ll find the missing Hardeman County mother and her three daughters.
“It’s our goal to find these girls and bring them home alive,” he said.
