(BECKHAM COUNTY, Okla.) Friday afternoon, the Leavenworth Sheriff's Office received a 911 call from a residence in the 14900 block of Hillside Road, Leavenworth, Kansas. When deputies arrived, they discovered a homicide scene with two deceased juvenile males inside and two missing girls, 7 and 3 years old. The suspect in the abduction and incident is the father, 40-year-old Donny Jackson. An Amber Alert was issued. Around 6:09 p.m. Friday, an OHP Trooper overheard Beckham County broadcasting a vehicle matching the description of the Amber Alert vehicle out of Kansas getting fuel at the 26 mile marker on I-40 in Beckham County. Two troopers started west and also notified Texas authorities.   A short time later, Beckham County got a call from a truck driver that the vehicle was westbound at mile marker 7. A Department of Public Safety Port of Entry officer was at exit 7 and observed the vehicle go by. He got in behind the vehicle and activated his emergency lights. The vehicle kept driving and took exit 5 and stopped. The officer gave the driver commands to exit the vehicle and he did so. Within 2 minutes of the stop, troopers and Beckham County deputies arrived and assisted in taking Jackson into custody.   The girls Jackson is accused of abducting were found safe.
