LAGRANGE, Ga. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a "person of interest" after five people were found slain inside a home in west Georgia.

Investigators are looking for a 26-year-old man who may be driving an olive green Mazda Tribute, the Troup County Sheriff's Office said Sunday.

The five people were found dead inside the home shortly after 10 p.m. Saturday, The LaGrange Daily News reported.

The bodies were discovered after someone called 911, asking for deputies to check on the home's occupants, Troup County sheriff's Sgt. Stewart Smith told the newspaper. The 911 caller reported that he hadn't seen anyone come or go from the home in a while, Smith said.

The home is in LaGrange, a small city about 80 miles southwest of Atlanta and just east of the Alabama state line.
