3 Tennessee sisters 'may be in extreme danger' after alleged abduction

Three Tennessee sisters "may be in extreme danger" after allegedly being abducted late last month by their mother and a man possibly carrying a gun, the state bureau of investigation said Saturday.

An Amber Alert was issued Saturday for the siblings - 14-year-old Adrienne Bain, 12-year-old Alexandra Bain and 8-year-old Kyliyah Bain. They were last seen April 27 in Whiteville, a town of about 4,600 people in western Tennessee.

The possibly armed male suspect, Adam Mayes, cut his own hair and may have done the same to the three children, according to the Amber Alert from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. The 35-year-old man - who has blue eyes and brown hair, weighs about 175 pounds and stands 6 feet, 3 inches tall - was last seen May 1 in Guntown, Mississippi.

    @banasy my point was that today parents are terrible. at least in my day if i were to get hit by a car in my day my parent would ask what i was doing playing in the street instead of asking the driver why he was on the childs playground. the parents in this neighborhood literally teach these kids that the street is their playground.

    The sad part is that there is a small park with swings and a basketball goal two blocks around the corner.

    I agree completely!
    When I was a kid, we played in the street at times, but we got out of the way the minute a car turned down it.
    These kids don't even move!
    And I live by a school with the same stuff you described...AND a park on my block!
    I don't understand it at all.
    Parents are just too casual about child-rearing these days, and it generally sucks!
