Terry Allen Miles, 44, has been charged with kidnapping in connection to the abduction of two Round Rock girls who were found safe in Colorado Wednesday night.

During their investigation officers found that her daughters, Lilianais Griffith, 14, and Luluvioletta Bandera-Magret, 7, were missing, he said. Texas investigators plan to fly out to Colorado on Thursday to take their girls into their custody and arrange the girls' trip back to their home state. The deputy called for backup and authorities initiated a 'high-risk traffic stop'.

Round Rock police chief Allen Banks said they would be interviewing Miles and the girls.

Terry Allen Miles has been a defendant in 20 criminal cases before the Calcasieu Parish District Attorney's Office - a lot of them for violent crimes - but only five of those cases ever led to a prosecution. He's also being investigated for his role in Bates' death.

The girls and their alleged kidnapper, 44-year-old Terry Allen Miles, were last seen Saturday on surveillance video inside a Trinidad store, CBS Denver reports.

Two sisters taken from their Round Rock home before the new year have been found safe in Colorado. "Terry Allen Miles was caught in Colorado without incident".

KKTV11 reports that a Las Animas County officer spotted a vehicle that matched the description of the auto associated with an active AMBER Alert, issued from Texas earlier in the week. "Bandera-Margret is described as a white female, 7-years-old, weighing 75 lbs at 4'5", with curly brown hair and brown eyes.

Miles has a long criminal past and was arrested at least seven times between 2006 and 2015, including for porn involving a juvenile.

Round Rock police began searching for the two children in relation to the suspicious death of their mother, Tonya Bates, on New Year's Eve. Authorities said Miles wears glasses.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso told the Austin American-Statesman that Miles had a history of domestic violence arrests and convictions. "We didn't have any issues with him", Pastorick said.

Miles was driving a gray 207 Hyundai Accent with Texas license plate JGH9845.
