Friends upset about search efforts in missing family case

(WMC-TV) - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says they have found no evidence of foul play in the disappearance of a mother and her three daughters in Hardeman County.

Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters, Adrienne, Alexandria, and Kyliyah, were last seen leaving the family home on Friday.

"Everyone's wanting to know what happened to our kids in this county," said Alice Dixon, friend of the family.

Dixon is upset with the pace of the case.

"Nobody is searching. There's not a search party for them, talked to the sheriff's department this morning, there isn't one formed yet. Why? Four days later and nobody thinks nothing. We do," she said.

The car they were driving in was found Monday, abandoned on farmland just a few miles from the family's home.

Within minutes, friends and strangers were offering help, but those offers have not been accepted. The place where the car was found has been cleared and there is no active search party.

"What's the deal?" said Dixon. "Nobody can tell us nothing. And there's a lot of people upset about that. Why can't we look?"

The TBI says investigators have found no evidence of foul play and no sign of Bain or her girls. It is leaving friends anxiously waiting for any update, while wishing there was more they could do.
