ROUND ROCK, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – An Amber Alert for two Central Texas girls has now been cancelled after police say they believe they are in Colorado.

Round Rock Police Chief Allen Banks says the children, 14-year old Lili Griffith and 7-year old Lulu Bandera-Magret are still missing, and the Amber Alert for the girls is still in effect in other states.

Banks told media members on Wednesday that the suspect, 44-year-old Terry Allen Miles, was seen on a surveillance camera at a store in Colorado. Banks also said they had received numerous tips that the girls and Miles had been seen together in The Centennial State.
