A Picayune couple who are persons of interest in the missing person case of Willie Ray Jones were taken into custody at approximately 8 p.m. Wednesday, said Assistant Chief Dustin Moeller.

Dustin and Erica Gray were taken into custody by U.S. Marshals in Pueblo County, Colorado at approximately 7:43 p.m. Central Standard Time, said Moeller. The pair were arrested on warrants for possession of stolen firearms.

The couple will be brought back to the Picayune Police Department for questioning in the disappearance of Willie Jones.
