MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - A member of Jo Ann Bain's family is speaking out for the first time about this murder and kidnapping incident that's gripped the Bain family for days.
For nearly two weeks, Jo Ann Bain's family has been waiting, wondering, and worrying.
"Keep us in your heart and know that we appreciate and covet your prayers and we'd like to thank you personally and we do want our family back," says Bain's cousin Vicki Mahan.
Mahan says her cousin never made it to a hair appointment on Friday, April 27.
She says her kids never got off the bus that day.
That's when Jo Ann's husband Gary Bain called Jo Ann's mother in Henderson Tennessee.
"And his comment to my cousin was 'So y'all haven't seen them?' How was he put it, 'I don't think they were kidnapped.' And from there the feelings became more foreboding," Mahan says.
Mahan says she didn't know Adam Mayes.
"At one time, there was a relationship, a brief relationship between him and my cousin Joann. Yes I do believe they had an intimate relationship at one time," she continues.
Mahan says authorities told the family that Jo Ann Bain and her oldest daughter, Adrienne, had been beaten inside a garage near the Whiteville home.
She says her family believes Adam and the girls are still in Mississippi somewhere.
But she says she feels like the two missing girls, 8-year-old Kyliyah Bain and her 12-year-old sister Alexandria, are either dead or harmed in some way.
