Two children from East Texas found in Fort Worth; Amber Alert canceled
The children were found safe with their grandmioher, who has been taken into custody.
FORT WORTH The Amber Alert issued Thursday night for two small children abducted from a small East Texas town was just canceled after the children were found safe at their maternal grandmother’s house in Fort Worth. Police have also taken the grandmother, 48-year-old Bonnie Miller, into custody.
Officer Sharron Neal, a spokesperson for the Fort Worth Police Department says 1-year-old Jordan Simpson and his 2-year-old sister Nevaen are now in police custody, awaiting the arrival of their father who, says Neal, is four to five hours away.
Initially, it was believed the children might have been taken from Kennard in Houston County to Garland, where Miller has family. But Neal says that earlier this afternoon that Fort Worth officers located her car, a 2005 Honda Accord. About half an hour later, Neals says, officers located Miller. Fort Worth police say Miller didn’t give officers any trouble when she was arrested.
