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.

    I hope these girls are found unharmed.
    It is an awful thing for children to be afraid of a parent, whether it is the mother or the father...
    I truly hope that this mother did not put her libido ahead of her childre's welfare; this happens all too frequently these days.

    @banasy havent you told me not to feed the trolls?other than that i totally agree.not so sure its a libedo problem though.people here teach their kids to play in traffic.the kids play basketball in the street.the parents look at you like you are stupid if you tap the horn to encourage the kids to get out of the street.a chickenhead screamed at me for doing just i told her that was my 3 second warning and started revving the engine.

      Yeah, I did say that...I was just trying to figure out what the heck it was talking about!
      I laughed out loud at the thought of you revving your engine; I see we share that, because I don't like kids walking in the middle of the street when there are perfectly good sidewalks on either side of it.
      I am still crackinbg up evisioning you revving your car

      They are still married.
      I saw no mention of a divorce/custody battle.

    Kids shouldn't be used as pawns by their parents. It's dirty pool for either parent to abduct the kids. It's cruel to the other parent AND the kids. This happened in the tiny town I'm from thirty years ago. The mom STILL doesn't know where her kids are.

    @hamsta: we just bought a house, and in the neighborhood, there is a sign with a kid and a ball with the caption "Blind child at play" I was like, "huh?"

    Let's all pray he uses a flowbee. If not instead of a gun he may be letting these poor children run around with a sharp pair of scissors.

    Samantha: Happy sweetheart?
    Darrin: Let's see. I've got a beautiful wife. Lovely daughter. Comfortable home. Good job. I guess I'm reasonably happy.
    Samantha: Why only 'reasonably'?
    Darrin: I would be ecstatically happy if you were an orphan!
    Samantha: Another remark like that and I'll be a widow.
