GUNTOWN, MS - 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 and killing their mother and older sister, Adam Mayes, did not say anything before fatally shooting himself.
Twelve -year-old Alexandria and 8-year-old Kyliyah Bain went home to their father Friday alive, with no apparent injuries other than being tired, scared and itchy from poison ivy.
Beverly Goodman, the aunt of the slain mother, Jo Ann Bain, said she was relieved the girls were home but still saddened by the killings of Bain and Bain's 14-year-old daughter Adrienne.
