(Guntown, MS) Investigators were back at the scene of those shallow graves in Union County, MS Monday, collecting more evidence.
“I hope it’s not the mother and the daughter. That would be the most likely scenario or any one of the kids,” said Resident Clay Stevenson. ”It would be terrible if it was one of them actually.”
FBI, US Marshals and local Guntown Police were gathered at the Guntown Community Center for the better half of Monday afternoon.

He said authorities don’t know if he’s in the area or out of state, but the Sherrif wanted to tell the people of Union County that they are safe.
He said some of best law enforcement and equipment are working on this case and they are determined to find the man who is considered armed and dangerous
Authorities said Mayes has been on the run since a mother and her three children disappeared from Hardeman County, TN April 27.
