Authorities: Kidnapped Girls Didn't Eat For Days

Posted: Updated:
Guntown, TN -

Authorities say two girls abducted from their Tennessee home told officers who rescued them that they went three days without food or water.

Master Sgt. Steve Crawford is with the Mississippi Highway Patrol and was among the officers who found the girls. He said Friday during a news conference that the girls were alarmed when authorities found them, but that they did not cry.

Officials at the news conference also said that the man accused of kidnapping the girls, Adam Mayes, did not say anything before fatally shooting himself.

Crawford says officers were combing the woods behind a church when Mayes, 12-year-old Alexandria Bain and 8-year-old Kyliyah Bain were spotted face down on the ground.
