Donny Jackson, 40, was taken into custody on Saturday evening near Erick, Oklahoma, after a truck driver heard on the radio that he was wanted, and alerted authorities.
His daughters Nora Jackson, seven, and Aven Jackson, three, were safely recovered from their father’s car shortly before 7pm local time.
The trio are believed to have driven from Leavenworth, 500 miles north in Kansas.
On Saturday two boys believed to be Jackson’s sons, Logan and Austin, aged 11 and 14, were found dead at the family home.
One of the children was supposed to be at a soccer game on Saturday, but did not turn up, the Kansas City Star reported.
The location of their mother, Tara, was unknown.
Jim Sherley, Leavenworth County undersheriff, said that family members found the two boys dead in the house and raised the alarm.
‘Donald Ray Jackson Jr, residing in the home, left the residence with two other juveniles,’ he said.
Kansas authorities issued an Amber Alert at around 1pm for the two girls.
Before the two boys were found dead, police pulled Jackson over at a traffic stop, at 12:35pm, and noticed that the two girls were in the car.
KSHB reported that Sherley said during a news conference last Saturday afternoon that the sheriff’s office has ‘had dealings’ with Jackson in the past.
Sherley said he did not know the volume of calls to his home.
Authorities said they have detained a suspect in the double homicide of two boys who also allegedly abducted his two young daughters, bringing an hourslong search to an end.
Sheriff’s deputies responding to a 911 call from a resident on Hillside Road in Leavenworth County, Kansas, shortly after 1 p.m. local time Saturday discovered two dead boys at the residence, according to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Two girls were also missing from the home, authorities said.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation issued an Amber Alert Saturday afternoon for the two missing girls, identified as Nora Jackson, 7, and Aven Jackson, 3.
Their father, Donny Jackson, 40, was a suspect in the homicides and the abduction, officials said.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol found Jackson’s car near Erick, Oklahoma, almost 500 miles southwest of Leavenworth County, shortly before 7 p.m. local time, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation said. The suspect was detained and the children were safely recovered, authorities said. No additional details were provided.
Jackson was stopped near the Oklahoma border earlier in the day, authorities said. The Kansas Highway Patrol made the unrelated stop at approximately 12:35 p.m. local time, and the abducted children were in the vehicle, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation said. The car stop came before the crime scene was discovered or the Amber Alert was issued.
Additional Amber Alerts that were issued in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas have now ended.
It is unclear what time the alleged abduction and homicides occurred, authorities said, as the 911 call was made by an adult who discovered the homicide scene.
It also is unclear what connection Jackson has to the male victims.
