JACKSON, Miss. - The bodies of three people believed to be members of a missing Mississippi family have been found in Copiah County south of Jackson.

Coroner Ellis Stewart says the bodies were found in an abandoned house off, about a mile from where the family's vehicle was found Saturday.

Stewart says the bodies matched the descriptions of Jaidon Hill, 7, Atira Hill-Smith, 30, and Laterry Smith, 34. They were reported missing Friday. Their vehicle was found crashed and burning Saturday morning.

On Monday, Jackson police recovered items linked to the family in a dumpster at a Jackson gasoline station.

Copiah County Sheriff Harold Burns say a 42-year-old man has been taken into custody in the case.
