Fort Worth toddler Twinkle Twilight found safe after Amber Alert

A 14-month old Fort Worth girl was found safe Monday morning after an Amber Alert was issued Sunday night.

Fort Worth police said the girl was located shortly before 8 a.m. inside a home in the area of Hanger Street and Collard Avenue.

The mother, Vicki Miles, did not have custody and took Twinkle Twilight during a visit on Saturday night. CPS took custody of the girl in June and she was placed in foster care.

Early Monday morning, police got a tip that the woman and the child were at a house on Hanger Street in Fort Worth. Police went door to door and found the child and the mother at one of the homes.

Police said the residents of the home “were not aware of the current situation” when they offered shelter for the two and no charges will be filed against the homeowners.

The mother was arrested on the scene by Fort Worth police and will face undetermined criminal charges.

Donald Dixon saw his estranged wife and her baby daughter in his backyard early Monday about 5 a.m. and he wound up calling police.

“She said open the door, need to come in,” Dixon said. “I said I can't let you in girl you done messed up. I wouldn't let her in."

Dixon said the 15-month old isn't his baby, but Miles told him Friday she was going to take the child after she lost custody to CPS.

“She wasn't going to hurt that baby everybody said she was in grave danger I know this for a fact I got a bunch of kids by her,” Dixon said.

Dixon says he's got seven children with his estranged wife. He said she has a total of 11 children. Thumbellina Miles is her 17-year-old daughter.

“She's crazy but she's not crazy when it comes to her kids though,” Thumbellina Miles said. "She does crazy stuff like she ran with the baby and shaved my sister's head.”
