COPIAH COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson Police found a wallet belonging to Atira Hughes Smith and other items connected to the missing family in a dumpster in south Jackson.

Police found the items in a dumpster at a Shell station at 1133 Raymond Road just before noon Monday.

Police also searched a home at 835 Combs Street, which is not far from where the items were found. That's where Laterry Smith's mother lives. A neighbor says the mother, and Smith's sisters, who also lived there, moved out Sunday night.

The missing family consists of seven-year-old, Jaidon Hill; his mother, 30-year-old Atira Hughes Smith and her husband, 34-year-old Laterry Smith.

According to the Copiah County Sheriff's Department the vehicle the family was traveling in has been recovered.

Sheriff Jones says, "Were going to put people on the ground looking at certain things there.  We believe there are hot spots but as far as knowing where to start going and searching we have no clues." 

The Jackson woman's family says Copiah deputies told them there had been an accident on Shelby Road, just off Highway 18. No one was inside the vehicle.

The family of Atira Hughes Smith said they last heard from her by phone on Friday. Hughes-Smith told relatives that she was going out of town for a couple of days before the call ended suddenly.

Sheriff Jones says the family was last seen at a Halloween party in Flowood Friday.

"I want this to come to a good conclusion.  I want that 7 year old back," says Jones.

Jaidon is described as an African American child, age seven, standing 3' tall and weighing 44 pounds with brown eyes.

Atira Hughes-Smith is described as an African-American female, standing 5' tall and weighing 148 pounds with brown eyes and hair.
