(CNN) -- Police in Tennessee have arrested the wife and mother of the man suspected of kidnapping Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters, a county official said Tuesday.
Mary Frances Mayes, 65, and Teresa Ann Mayes, 30, were arrested Monday and charged with especially aggravated kidnapping, according to Hardeman County, Tennessee, Deputy Clerk Pat Kirk. They appeared before a judge Tuesday morning and were being held in the Hardeman County jail, Kirk said.
According to an arrest warrant, Teresa Mayes admitted driving a vehicle containing Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters from Hardeman County to Union County, Mississippi. Bain and her oldest daughter, Adrienne, suffered "serious bodily injury as a result of their removal or confinement," according to the warrant.
The bodies Jo Ann Bain and Adrienne Bain were found Friday at a home in Guntown, Mississippi. Police say that home is linked to the suspect, Adam Mayes.
Police say they are still searching for Mayes and Bain's two younger daughters, Alexandria Bain, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8.
In Mississippi, authorities continued to stop and search cars at checkpoints set up to look for them, state Highway Patrol Master Sgt. Johnny Poulos said.
Mayes, 35, is considered armed and dangerous, and authorities have asked for the public's help in tracking down him and the two girls.
