My daughter and I witnessed 3 brightly-lit craft just west of Tupelo, Ms. near Belden Truckstop. One left a trail, then one disappeared

I am reporting this for friends of the family, a mother(age mid-forties) and daughter (age 20) were traveling just west of Tupelo, Ms. at approx. 17:30 in the afternoon on highway 178 or McCullough Blvd. near Belden truckstop when witnessed 3 disc-shaped craft above the horizon or treeline. Their vantage point was overlooking a low bottom to the northwest. The sky was a beautiful azure blue, and the daughter had just commented that it (the sky) looked like a huge lake. Just then, they saw the 3 craft, which did not seem to be moving, but was unsure due to the distance. They appeared to be lit up or reflecting sunlight. After viewing them for a few minutes, one of then dis- appeared before their eyes and, driving on, lost sight of the others.
