Terry Allen Miles allegedly abducted two Round Rock girls and remains a person of interest in their mother’s death. Miles was charged with kidnapping Thursday afternoon

The girls disappeared after their mother was found dead in Texas on Sunday.

Lilianais Griffith, 14, and Luluvioletta Bandera-Magret, 7, were found in a vehicle in Las Animas County, Colo., on Wednesday night after a traffic stop, according to Round Rock Police Chief Allen Banks.

Lili, 14, and her sister Lulu Bandera-Margret, 7, were found Wednesday night after a couple spotted the auto driven by the man believed to have abducted them, Terry Miles.

Round Rock police chief Allen Banks said the girls were located after a deputy in Las Animas County spotted Miles' gray 2007 Hyundai Accent after it had been described in the AMBER alert.

Banks said Miles' vehicle started to drive erratically and a law enforcement official waited for backup before engaging the auto. He was taken into custody Wednesday. They were taken to the hospital for a checkup. However, police said Miles was seen on surveillance footage on December 30 at a business in Trinidad, Colo. Miles was found within hours of police releasing pictures from that video.

The Republic of Korea has also dispatched a coast guard ship and a helicopter to assist in the search and rescue operations. The Chinese vessel, carrying grain from the U.S. , suffered minor damage "without jeopardising the safety of the ship".

Police issued an AMBER alert for Griffith and Bandera-magret on Monday, one day after their mother was found dead in their Round Rock home. Miles is a person of interest in the homicide, police said.

Miles, who is believed to have been Bates' roommate, was immediately eyed as a suspect in the girls' disappearance. He's not now charged with her death, but charges could be upgraded as the investigation continues.

Around the same time, Miles' mother received a text from Miles using Lili's cell phone saying, "Mom I left with the kids and came home to something bad I think Tonyas boyfriend".

Police tracked the phone to a wooded area next to a Round Rock Walmart.

Sometime that afternoon, Miles was caught on security footage at a Safeway in Trinidad, Colo.

Some earthquakes can be more than 350 miles deep in countries such as Fiji, according to USGS duty seismologist Robert Sanders. But there's also a chance that this was a foreshock, a precursor to a larger natural disaster .

"Child protective services will be working on getting the girls home in the near future", Banks said.

During a press conference, a smiling Banks said, "As you walked around in the incident command room, it wasn't "if" the girls came home, it has always been "when" the girls came home - that just goes to tell you the passion that everybody had in returning these girls safe".

'When we interviewed him for that it was a pretty disturbing interview, ' Mancuso said.

Miles is facing kidnapping charges and was scheduled for an initial appearance Thursday at 3 p.m.in Federal District Court in Denver.
