Clues in Family’s Disappearance Found in Dumpster

JACKSON, Miss. — Inside a dumpster at a gas station in South Jackson, possible clues in the mysterious disappearance of an entire family from Brandon.

Police and FBI agents pulled a couple of items out of the dumpster before noon Monday.

Atira Hughes Smith, her husband LaTerry Smith and her seven-year-old son Jaidon Hill have not been seen since Friday.  Copiah County deputies found their wrecked car Saturday, but no sign of the family.  Police think the three are in a lot of danger and may need medical treatment.  If you see them or know where they might be, call crime stoppers at (601) 355-8477.

Family members are planning a prayer service for 6:30 tonight at Trinity United Methodist Church in Brandon.
