Kidnap-Slaying Suspect Search Continues

GUNTOWN, Miss. (AP) - Heavily-armed FBI agents and authorities from Mississippi and Tennessee are expected to resume searching woods and back roads Wednesday for what they said was a dangerous man suspected of killing a Tennessee woman and her teenage daughter and running off with her two younger girls.

Meanwhile, a community continues to mourn the slain mother and daughter and the loss of the girls.

A day earlier, authorities canvassed roads and searched tree lines near the home where 35-year-old Adam Mayes lived in Union County, Miss. Authorities have been tight-lipped about the details of the search, hoping to avoid releasing information that puts the girls' lives in jeopardy.

The FBI said Tuesday that authorities were hopeful the two young girls - 12-year-old Alexandra Bain and 8-year-old Kyliyah - were still alive.
