An Amber Alert has been issued as Round Rock police search for two children in relation to the suspicious death of their mother. While Round Rock police have not released how Bates' died, Mancuso says his modus operandi is similar, "In this particular case in Round Rock it's also a beating - which is the same manner of death [of Pamela Parker] - which was never disclosed before this time".
Tonya Bates, the mother of the two missing girls, was found dead on New Year's Eve, according to KVUE-TV.
"Police are looking for 44-year-old Terry Allen Miles, born on 6/2/73, 6'2", 200, brown hair, hazel eyes wears glasses & has a beard, in connection with their abduction.
Bandera-Margret, 7, is white with brown hair and eyes, about 4-foot-5-inches tall and weighs about 75 pounds.
Round Rock police Chief Allen Banks said Monday that Miles and Bates were roommates. Miles and Bates were reportedly not romatically involved.
He is driving a gray 2017 Hyundai Accent with Texas license plate JGH9845. She also has a stud in her right nose.
Orrin Hatch Retirement Opens Door For Trump Critic Mitt Romney In Senate
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Trump and Romney spoke on the phone following Trump's trip to Utah last month. Hatch's retirement means an open seat race in his Republican-leaning state in this year's midterm election.
Police initially said they believe he may be headed to Louisiana.
A spokesperson for the Round Rock police department was not immediately available for additional comment when contacted by Fox News on Tuesday.
KXAN reports that Miles has not been charged with a crime yet authorities do not believe the girls are with him willingly. Police found her body after responding to a welfare check at the home.
He had not seen the family since Thursday. Usually, you hear it, and it's like, "Oh, it's somewhere else.' Reid said the police spoke to him, "They asked me about her and the kids, and I didn't know too much". Most of the time they were gone. "They owned only one vehicle so if that auto was gone, there wasn't nobody there".
"It's our neighbor, it's the holidays, and you know you want to feel safe in your neighborhood", said Antonia Quilatanga.
Neighbors are hoping the little girls make it home. Reid said the cops accidentally knocked on his door, "I was like it's not us, so I guess it was next door".
