An Amber Alert has been issued across Texas for two girls from Round Rock believed to be in extreme danger.
Luluvioletta Bandera-Magret, 7, and Lilianais Griffith, 14, were last seen on Saturday.
Griffith is 5-foot-10 and weighs 100 pounds. She has brown eyes and wears a right nose stud with braces. Bandera-Margaret is 4-foot-5 and weighs 75 pounds. She has curly brown hair and brown eyes.
They were discovered missing when law enforcement officers went to the home to conduct a welfare check and found an adult female dead.
Officials believe the girls are with Terry Miles, 44, and possible traveling in a gray 2017 Hyundai Accent four-door hatchback with Texas license plate JGH9845 with a white sticker on the back window.
Miles is 6-foot-2 and weighs 200 pounds. He has hazel eyes, wears glasses and has a beard.
It was unclear Monday if the woman is the girls’ mother or what relationship they have with Miles.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children along with the Round Rock Police Department are asking for the public’s help to find the missing girls.
Officials believe Miles is driving the girls across Texas, and may have crossed the state’s line. Round Rock is part of the greater Austin area and is about 590 miles east of El Paso.
If you have seen Miles, the girls or the listed vehicle, call 9-1-1 immediately.
