A family of three is missing after police found their car, which had been in an accident. This bizarre mystery started with 30-year-old Atira Hughes-Smith told relatives on Friday that she needed to leave town right away, according to “Fox and Friends” live on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
That phone call ended abruptly and no one has heard from Atira, her husband, 34-year-old Laterry Smith or Atira’s 7-year-old son, Jaidon Hill. The mystery grows now that the vehicle this family owns was discovered in an accident and their belongings are discovered in a dumpster, according to the Fox News website.
Authorities found the family’s car after it crashed in a rural Mississippi area, near the town of Carpenter. The car was empty and the family was nowhere in sight.
Authorities in Mississippi have now recovered items belonging to this family. Items belonging to all three were found in a dumpster at a gas station on Monday. Police were at that station all day Monday searching for clues after the discovery.
A missing persons poster has been issued by the Copiah County Sheriff’s Department. On the poster it says that the family may be in need of medical attention. The pictures of the family are above. Where did the family of three disappear to? This is the question authorities are trying to answer today.
