Biological Father Seeks Custody of Surviving Daughter

Posted: Updated:

HARDEMAN COUNTY, Tenn.- A custody case could separate the surviving two sisters who were kidnapped in West Tennessee. The biological father of the oldest girl now says he wants her back.

Mark Johnson, who fathered Adrienne and Alexandria Bain, signed over his custody rights more than a year ago to Jo Ann Bain's current husband Gary.  But now his family is stepping forward saying he's seeking legal action to get his surviving daughter back.

"It was a tough deal for him. He didn't look at it like he was giving up his kids, but him and Jo Ann and Gary sat down and had a good agreement of what they were doing and why they were doing it. Now that Jo Ann is not in her life, he just wants to get her back," said Mike Johnson, Alexandria Bain's Uncle.

The family says it will be a tough battle getting Alexandria back. Gary Bain, the girl's legal father, told them he was taking the girls to California where he could spread the ashes of Joann and Adrienne on the beach. The two were killed by Adam Mayes during the kidnapping of the youngest two girls.

Johnson says he's afraid Bain could take the girls to California and never come back.
