GUNTOWN, Miss. -- A murder and kidnapping suspect with ties to Arizona has been added to the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list.

Adam Mayes, 35, has been charged with kidnapping and killing Jo Ann Bain and her 14-year-old daughter Adrienne on April 27. He’s also accused of kidnapping Bain’s 12-year-old daughter Alexandria and 8-year-old daughter Kyliyah.

Mayes’ wife, Teresa Mayes, has also been arrested and charged with murder. She told authorities that she was present when her husband killed Jo Ann and Adrienne Bain at their home in Whiteville, Tenn.

Teresa Mayes said the plan was to kidnap Alexandria and Kyliyah Bain.

Adam Mayes’ mother, Mary Mayes, is also facing charges of conspiracy to commit kidnapping.

The bodies of Jo Ann and Adrienne Bain were found last week at a home near Guntown where Adam Mayes lived. A manhunt for Mayes and Alexandria and Kyliyah Bain is currently ongoing.

Adam Mayes is described as a family friend of the Bains. 

He spoke with police early in their investigation and admitted that he was the last person to see Jo Ann Bain and her daughters. Mayes then fled when investigators tried to contact him again.

Along with Arizona, Adam Mayes is also said to have ties to Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.

Anyone with any information is being asked to call police or the FBI.
