The children's tragic discovery Tuesday follows the arrest of their father, Tim Jones, on unrelated charges in Mississippi on Saturday, according to the Lexington County Sheriff's Office
The mother of the five children, ages 1 to 8, first reported them missing on Sept. 3 after failing to get in touch with their father who's identified as her ex-husband and their legal guardian, said the sheriff's office.
Alabama Sheriff Kenny Hardin told
that the bodies were found in a rural area off Highway 10 in Wilcox County.
Harden said their father confessed to dumping the bodies in that location.
Investigators in South Carolina said the children were last seen with their father. When they went to his home last week to speak with him they said he and the children were gone.
"Neighbors told deputies that the children's father said he was moving with his children from his home near Lexington to another state," said the sheriff's department in a release Tuesday.
