Relatives of Casei Jones reported her and her four children missing Saturday after they hadn't been seen or heard from in six weeks. The children range in age from 1 to 10.
Authorities said Michael Jones was found in Brantley County on Sunday after a traffic accident. Casei Jones' remains were found in the vehicle he was driving at the time, officials said.
Michael Jones later led detectives to the remains of the four children, officials said.
"Although the remains have not been positively identified, detectives believe they are the remains of the four missing children," the sheriff's office said in a statement.

More charges may be forthcoming, officials said.
