Kansas police issued a photo of Donny Jackson with an Amber Alert seeking return of the girls

A Kansas father has been arrested in Oklahoma on suspicion of murdering his two young sons then fleeing with his two young daughters. 

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.

'The suspect in the abduction and incident is the father, Donny Jackson,' said Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office. 

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.
