Search continues for missing Tennessee girls

Authorities on Thursday continued their search for two kidnapped Tennessee girls and the man accused of abducting them and killing their mother and sister.

"We wish someone would call and help us," FBI spokesman Joel Siskovic said Thursday. "At this point, this guy doesn't want to be found, and we're out there trying to find him."

A day earlier, the FBI put the suspect, Adam Mayes, on its list of 10 most wanted fugitives and added $100,000 to the reward fund offered for a break in the case. Mayes has been charged in the killing of Jo Ann Bain and her eldest daughter, Adrienne, 14, but authorities suspect he is still holding Bain's younger daughters, Alexandria, 12, and Kyliyah, 8.

The motive behind the kidnappings and killings remains unknown, but Adam Mayes' mother-in-law told ABC's "Good Morning America" that Mayes and his wife would fight over the Bain family.

"The reason they were arguing so much is because there were two little girls that he was just absolutely obsessed with," Josie Tate said. "He was claiming that these two children were his."

Siskovic said Mayes was a Bains family friend.

"There has been a lot of information that has come to light, and we want to make sure these girls are not brought to further risk. All of these details are coming in and going into the investigative picture," he said.

    This is a 'chart', not a thread. And as is the case with most any chart, several threads may be going at any given time. If you don't care to join a particular thread, start a new one. Or you can just keep harping on mine. Give a ratz ass.

      This would be the first time I can honestly say banasy IS so far gone in her analogy... that my jaw dropped at the speed of sound!

      My question IS, what have you been smoking?

    Actually, "Behind The Wheel" IS and, ma'am. One I didn't steal from an actual living, breathing man. Look up the artist yourself.

    Definition of 'nomenclature'
    1. A set or system of names or terms, as those used by a particular science or art, by an individual or community.
    2) The names or terms comprising a set or sysyem.

    Notice that nowhere in that definition is impersonation of another person.

    This is not a chart.
    This is a thread.
    No matter how you care to redefine it, it isn't happening. Stop reaching to try and make this what it isn't; your very own blog.

    So it's come down to stealing another known poster's name?
    Isn't that hijacking?

    Dazzle said the same thing; the question is, would anyone visit?
