ATHENS, TN (WRCB) -

In Athens, the search continues for a man, police say stole a car off the side of the interstate, then, with help from his son, tried to sell it to a local salvage yard.

The scrap yard operator was able to identify one of them as Adam Bayes.

A woman says her Ford Taurus broke down on I-75 last week.  She parked it on the shoulder, and left to get help.  When she returned, the car was gone.

Bayes reportedly admitted his father, John Lankford asked him if he "wanted to make some money by helping him haul off a junk car."

Bayes is charged with theft, Lankford is being sought on a warrant.
