(CNN) – 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.
Authorities also describe the children’s mother, 31-year-old Jo Ann Bain, as a suspect.
The suspects and children may be en route to Arizona or Mississippi, according to the Amber Alert. Mayes has connections to Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.
