The bodies were found around 4 p.m. off Highway 10 at mile marker 94, just outside the city of Camden.
The father of the five missing children, Tim Jones, Jr. had been arrested on an unrelated charge in Smith County, Mississippi, Saturday night.
According to a Sheriff in Alabama, the father told Mississippi authorities he dumped the bodies on Highway 10 between Camden and Greenville.
The children, between 1 and 8 years old, had been missing since last Wednesday.
The sheriff's department in Lexington, South Carolina had listed "suspected foul play" in the disappearance of the children.
The father was the children's primary legal custodian, and they lived with him at a home near Lexington, SC.
The mother, who is divorced from the children's father, reported them missing September 3.
