Aaron Miller, 42, and his 7-month-old daughter have been located, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office announced Sunday afternoon. Deputies located the pair in the Spokane area and they are both safe.

Original story:

Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies are searching for a father an his 7 month-old daughter. They believe Aaron Miller, 42, may be trying to flee the area and possibly the country.

There is no information at present to suggest the child is in danger or has been harmed, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.

Deputies responded to reports of custodial interference Friday evening at approximately 9:00 p.m. They encountered an individual, identified in the news release as “the victim”, who said that Miller and the child had last been seen at the victim’s parents’ house, where they were residing. The victim and Miller share joint custody of the child but both parties have been contending for primary custody.

Deputies believe that Miller may be trying to leave the country with assistance from his mother, Anita S. Jackson, 66, who lives in Egypt.

Miller is approximately six feet tall and weighs 195 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. His mother, who may be accompanying them, also has black hair and brown eyes. They may be traveling in a white 2009 Ford Flex with Washington License plates BFE6814.

Anyone with information regarding the group is asked to call 911 and reference Spokane County Sheriff’s Office number 10099850.
