U.S. Marshals found a Milford woman and her child, reported missing three months ago, in Austin, Tex., on June 22, Milford Sgt. Michael McMillian said.

Shannon Truitt-Miller, 33, of Milford, is accused of interference with the custody of a child after allegedly taking her child against the father’s wishes and fleeing the area. McMillian said it was the U.S. Marshals’ Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children who found her, months later, in Austin.

McMillian said NCMEC is helping the father get to and from Austin to pick up his child, while Truitt-Miller is being held in Texas until she can be extradited back to Delaware. She will face a single charge of interference with the custody of a child, as well as an active capias from Kent County Family Court.
