Amber Alert: Investigation of 2 abducted Texas girls focuses on southern Colorado

DENVER -- An Amber Alert was issued in Colorado on Wednesday afternoon for two young girls from Texas who could be in southern Colorado and are believed to be in extreme danger.

The Round Rock, Texas, Police Department said Terry Allen Miles was seen on surveillance video at a business in Trinidad on Saturday. Police believe the girls are with him.

Texas authorities issued an Amber Alert earlier for 7-year-old Luluvioletta Mariposo Bandera-Margret and 14-year-old Lilianais Victoria Cake Griffith after they found their mother, 44-year-old Tonya Bates, dead in their home north of Austin and the girls missing on Saturday.

They believe the girls are with Miles, who was Bates' roommate. He's described as 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds with brown hair, hazel eyes and a beard.

Miles was driving a gray 2017 Hyundai Accent four-door hatchback with Texas license plates JGH-9845. The vehicle had a white sticker on the upper-right corner of the rear window.

He might be driving across state lines and possibly into southern Colorado or northern New Mexico, KEYE reported.

Griffith is described as a white female, 5-foot and 100 pounds with dirty blonde hair, brown eyes, a right nose stud and braces. It's not known what she was last wearing.

Bandera-Margret is described as a white female, 4-foot-5 and 75 pounds with curly brown hair and brown eyes. It's also unknown what she was last wearing.
