(WMC-TV) – FBI officials say they have found two bodies during the search for three West Tennessee girls who have been missing since last month.

Investigators found the bodies while executing a search warrant in Guntown, MS, Friday. The FBI hasn't released the victims' causes of death or their identities.

Adrienne, Alexandria and Kyliyah were last seen with their mother JoAnne Bain on April 27 in Hardeman County, TN.

Investigators say family friend Adam Mayes is responsible for the Bains' disappearance. Mayes is believed to be armed and is wanted for kidnapping and filing a false police report.

"Contact with Mayes was initiated early in the investigation, but he later fled when law enforcement authorities subsequently attempted to contact him," said an FBI spokesman in a written statement.

Mayes, who was last seen in Guntown, MS, on Tuesday, has been added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Most Wanted List.

Mayes has brown hair, blue eyes and weighs about 175 pounds. However, investigators believe he has altered his appearance by cutting his hair and may have also cut the hair of the children and dyed it an unknown color.

Officials believe the group may be en route to Arizona or Mississippi. However, Mayes also has connections to North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida.

Adrienne has brown hair and brown eyes. She is 5'4" weighs about 129 pounds.

Alexandria has brown hair and hazel eyes. She is 5' tall and weighs 105 pounds.

Kyliyah has blonde hair and brown eyes. She is 4' tall and weighs 57 pounds.
