An Amber Alert issued for two young children suspected of being abducted by their grandmother was canceled Friday after the trio was found safe.

Houston County sheriff's deputies said they suspect Jordan Malik Simpson, 1, and Nevaeh Kimora Simpson, 2, were kidnapped by their maternal grandmother, Bonnie Benton Miller.

Investigators said the children's mother recently passed away. Their father was given sole custody of them, but Miller refused to return them to him after they went to her home for a Christmas visit.

While court proceedings were being finalized, Miller took off with the children, investigators said. Felony kidnapping warrants were issued for Miller's arrest.

Miller and the children were found in Fort Worth about 3 p.m. on Friday. Detectives said they spotted the car and found the three finding in a nearby home.

The children were not harmed and their father was headed to Fort Worth to be reunited with them, investigators said.

Miller was taken into custody.
