HOUSTON COUNTY (March 8, 2013)—An Amber Alert issued Thursday afternoon for two young Texas children last seen on Feb. 21 in Kennard between Crockett and Lufkin was discontinued late Friday afternoon after the children were found safe and their grandmother was arrested.
Fort Worth police found the two children, Jordan Malik Simpson, 1, and Nevaen Kimora Simpson, 2, and arrested Bonnie Benton Miller, 48, at around 3:30 p.m. Friday.
Media reports indicated that Miller refused to return the children to their father after a Christmas visit.
The father was awarded sole custody of the children after the death of their mother in late December, and Miller left with the two youngsters while the custody arrangement was being finalized, media reports indicated.
The children’s father was en route to Fort Worth Friday afternoon.
