Father Pleads for Return of Missing Children

Police have been scouring parts of South Mississippi since Monday morning doing what they can to bring Timothy Jones and his children together again.

The three missing children were last seen Sunday night, when the baby-sitter put them to bed.

Jones is desperate to find them. He and the baby-sitter made their pleas Tuesday for anyone with information to please come forward.

"I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. It's hard," Timothy Jones said.

Timothy Jones wiped the tears from his eyes wondering if he'll ever see his children again. Sunday night, Jones did what he does every night he has to go to work. He took Timmy, Felisha and Sierra to their babysitter's home on Ingalls Avenue.

"I dropped the kids off at the babysitter's Sunday night around 7:30, and around 4:15 in the morning, I got a call from the babysitter saying the kids were gone."

Anna Harris has cared for Jones' children for the past two and a half months. Her two daughters shared their room and were sleeping next to the Jones children Sunday night.

"My six-year-old told the police officer she heard Felisha and Sierra talking, she doesn't know what they said," Harris said.

As one day missing turned into two, Jones went door to door putting up fliers in store windows. He hopes someone has seen his children and can bring them home.

"Try to get to a phone and call somebody," Jones said choking back tears. "Just come home."

"I feel like they're my own," Harris said. "I'm very much worried. My three-year-old talks about Felicia, and she keeps asking where Felicia is."

Timothy Jones wants to know that, too and prays someone has the answer.

"If anybody has any kind of information, if they would please call the police department, and let me know," Jones said.

Timothy Jones and his wife are divorced and are going through a custody battle right now for their three children. Jones says this could be a possible reason for the children's disappearance.

    14 years as part of the Ole Miss football program as a coach or player has prepared Matt Luke for this opportunity. Admittedly it doesn't come under the circumstances he might've envisioned. But with a Rebel bloodline that runs 3 generations deep, the position fulfills a lifelong dream. "I can truly tell y'all today that this is my dream job," Luke said Monday at his first press conference as Ole Miss interim head coach. "It's a job that I've been preparing my whole li...

    The Pascagoula Panthers open the 2017 football season on the road. In fact, their first three games are road contests. That scheduling quirk may give field turf crews just enough time to get War Memorial Stadium ready for the September 8 home opener. The wet weather in South Mississippi is placing quite the burden on construction workers as they attempt to complete stadium renovations. The project was suppose to be finished before the beginning of Pascagoula's football season.
