    Greenville is on the Mississippi River, 600 miles from home.

    This is confusing. I think the search for the children is happening in Alabama. Smith County MS and Greenville, MS (on the River) are not nearby each other. They are on opposite sides of the state. Smith Co MS wouldn't be long drive from Alabama (an hour, depending) but Greenville would be over two hours, maybe more. I'm quite familiar with both having grown up next door to Smith Co. Our local news has reported the Alabama search.

    Does anyone have an age on Timothy Jones? I'm wondering if he is a native of Smith County, MS. I know that Jones is a common name everywhere, but there are a lot of Jones' in that area.

    From your link:

    Yup, you're right, Quill. I guess I thought Greenville, MS, because Smith was arrested in Mississippi. LE must have had some kind of info to go on to find the kids so soon. They could have been anywhere.

    I can understand why you would have thought Greenville, MS. MS shares many county and city names with nearby AL. It is easy to get wires crossed and it happens all the time. :)

    I'm wondering right now, JMO and mind wandering, if Jones is a native of Smith Co. and had he come back home. I believe I read where he was stopped at a roadblock, so it's possible that he was passing through. But I am wondering, because there is not much reason to be there unless you live there, visiting someone or passing through. Again, JMO and wondering for my own (local-ish) curiosities.

    The bodies of five South Carolina children who have been missing since September 3 were found Tuesday in a rural area of Wilcox County in Alabama, according to the sheriff of Butler County.

    snip

    Sheriff Harden says the father told Mississippi authorities that he dumped the bodies on Highway 10 between Camden and Greenville.

    Oh Lord. What could possibly happen in a father's mind to kill 5 children? I don't know how they died but I can't even imagine the terror these babies went through waiting for their turn to die? Prayers to the mother and the families. RIP little ones.
