Two family members of the man accused of abducting a Tennessee mom and her daughters; killing the mom and oldest daughter, are under arrest in connection with the crime. This as the search continues for the kidnapper and missing girls.

FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports:

Authorities say two bodies found buried last week in northern Mississippi are Jo Ann Bain and her 14 year-old daughter, Adrienne.  Thirty-five year-old Adam Mayes, a so-called family friend, is the prime suspect.  He's on the run, and investigators believe Bain's two other daughters; 12 year-old Alexandria and 8 year-old Kyliyah, are with him and in danger.

(Edwards) "We know he's from this area, he lived in this area, his mother and daddy's from this area.  So that's why we're focusing so hard on this area."

Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards, but Mayes and the two girls could be anywhere at this point.  

And we've also learned Mayes's wife and mother are under arrest, considered accomplices.
