GUNTOWN, Miss. (AP) - Now that two kidnapped girls have been reunited with their family, it will be up to them to answer the many lingering questions in the case.

It's still not known how long 12-year-old Alexandria Bain and 8-year-old Kyliyah had to survive in the woods with their abductor, Adam Mayes. They told their rescuers they had gone without food and water for three days.

Authorities have said Mayes killed the girls' mother, Jo Ann Bain, and 14-year-old sister Adrienne. Investigators have not disclosed a motive. Mayes has been described as being a family friend who was like an uncle to the children.

Alexandria and Kyliyah were found by a team of officers in thick woods in Mississippi. Adam Mayes killed himself when they were discovered.
