An accused kidnapper's wife and mother are behind bars, charged with helping him kidnap a Tennessee woman and her three daughters.

Police haven't found Adam Mayes yet but they've taken his wife, Teresa, and his mother, Mary Francis, into custody.

The two women are charged with helping Mayes in the alleged kidnapping of Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters from near their home in Hardeman County, Tennessee.

Teresa Mayes is also accused of knowing about Jo Ann Bain and the oldest daughter, Adrienne, being killed and buried in shallow graves at the Mayes' home in northern Mississippi.

Adam Mayes is still on the run and two of Jo Ann Bain's daughters are still missing, 12 year old Alexandria and 8 year old Kyliyah.

The Mayes and Bain families were reportedly close friends.

There are various photographs of Adam Mayes with one or all three of the Bain sisters, as well as one of Teresa Mayes with the girls.

The search for Adam Mayes has expanded to several states and proceeds with caution because he's considered armed and dangerous.
