Federal authorities are using digital billboards along roads in several Southern states to alert the public to watch for a 35-year-old man wanted in connection with the disappearance of a mother and her three daughters, officials said Monday.
The billboards warn about Adam Mayes and are along routes from Guntown, Miss. -- where Mayes was last seen on May 1 -- to other states where he is known to have connections, FBI spokesman Joel E. Siskovic said in a telephone interview Monday afternoon.
Mayes, who's been described as a friend of the family, has ties to Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida, officials said.
“Our primary goal is to bring back the family safely,” Siskovic said.
Meanwhile, officials are awaiting the results of autopsies on two bodies found last week in the Guntown-area, Siskovic said. He would not discuss the bodies, or even say whether they were those of adults or children.
