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.
