OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – The Oklahoma City Police Department has canceled an Amber Alert for a missing 14-month-old girl.

OKCPD was called to a residence near S Bryant Ave. and SE 59th St. around noon after the body of a female was discovered inside the home.

“There were obvious signs of homicide,” said OKCPD officials during a press conference Tuesday.

During the course of the investigation, officers realized 14-month-old Zyla Milburn was missing from the home.

Officers believed Zyla to be with 37-year-old Brandon Milburn.

However, police say they don’t have ‘conclusive evidence’ that Brandon is the suspect in the homicide.

Thankfully, she has been found safe in Love County. Love County Sheriff Marty Grisham tells KFOR the child was dropped off at the county detention center by a woman they believe to be Brandon’s aunt.

Sheriff Grisham says the woman called 911 and told them she was unaware the child was considered abducted. She met authorities at the Love County Detention Center to release the child and be interviewed by officers.

It is unknown at this time how she came to be in possession of Zyla, but officials say they believe the woman was headed home to Texas when she became aware of the Amber Alert.

Milburn is believed to drive a silver or white Toyota Prius with license plate ‘AEX868.’

Officials say Milburn should be considered armed and dangerous.

Contact OKCPD immediately if you see Zyla and Brandon or know of their whereabouts.
