The wife and mother of a kidnapping suspect have been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a family of four from Tennessee, according to a Hardeman County, Miss., court clerk.

The wife and mother of Adam Mayes were arrested for "especially aggravated kidnapping" in connection with the kidnapping of JoAnn Bain and her three daughters, who were reported missing from their Tennessee home on April 28.

The dead bodies of JoAnn Bain and her eldest daughter, 14-year-old Adrienne Bain, were found in the backyard of the Mayes' family home in Guntown, Miss. The other two daughters and Adam Mayes have not been located.

The women were reported missing on April 27 by Gary Bain, JoAnn's husband and the stepfather of the children. During the investigation, police interviewed Mayes, who admitted he was the last person to see the four women prior to their disappearance. When police went back to request a second interview later in the investigation, Mayes fled, according to the police warrants obtained by ABC News.

Details in the arrest warrants show that on April 27, Adam Mayes and his wife, Teresa Mayes, worked together to take Bain and her daughters from their home in Tennessee to Mississippi, where Adam and Teresa share a home with his parents.

Teresa and Adam's mother, Mary Mayes, both confessed to police during interviews that on April 27, they witnesses Mayes digging holes in his mother's backyard, where the two bodies were later found.

Police said they believe that Bain and her daughters were confined on the Mayes property. At some point in their confinement JoAnn and Adrienne died and were buried on the property.

"It is believed that Adam Mayes removed or confined Jo Ann Bain and her 3 daughters...in a manner that substantially interfered with their liberty," the warrant states. "Concerning Jo Ann Bain and Adrienne Bain, both victims suffered serious bodily injury as a result of their removal or confinement."

Police were digging in the Mayes' yard on Monday, but have not said what they were looking for or whether they found anything.

Teresa Mayes' sister, Bobbi Booth, said her sister knew about the killings, but may have been too scared to call the police, according to the Associated Press.

During the investigation, police also found a trailer that Mayes had rented from Union County, Miss., which contained property of the two girls who are still missing and thought to be in Mayes' custody.

Mary Mayes is charged with conspiracy to commit especially aggravated kidnapping, while Teresa is charged with committing especially aggravated kidnapping.

Police are still searching for Adam Mayes and the two girls, Alexandra Bain, age 12, and Kyliyah Bain, age 8. They have said that Mayes has likely changed his appearance and that of the girls.

Yes its been on our local news here in AZ because supposedly the mother and her daughters were planning on moving to the Tucson area in a couple weeks. I think they just returned back to TN from here too. Very sad though. I wonder why they (he) did this to them.
