Montgomery police Chief Anthony Solomon said Kiah was found in Oklahoma and that her biological mother is bringing her back to Texas. 

As of this update, no one has been arrested and no charges have been filed, however Solomon said they will be investigating once Kiah is returned safely.

Kiah Miller was last seen at 4 a.m. Tuesday in the 100 block of Abner Lane, Montgomery police said. Kiah recently moved to Texas with her biological father and stepmother.

Kiah is 5-foot-7, about 110 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair. She was last seen wearing a red state champion long-sleeved hoodie sweatshirt, black workout pants with red stripes down the side and a blue backpack.
