Franklin Police have charged two people in connection with the disappearance of 9-year-old Anyaih Miller. At 7:50am the girl was seen, at the school bus stop, getting into a silver car with Texas license plates. The car was occupied by two women and a man. Several hours later, the car was spotted by a Williamson County Sheriff’s Deputy on Columbia Avenue in Franklin. The child’s estranged mother, Maria Davis, and an acquaintance, Edward Ector, were in the vehicle — but Anyaih was missing.

An intense investigation by Detectives, with help from the public, eventually led to Anyaih’s safe surrender at a Franklin business, by the third person who was in the car when she was taken.
