5-year-old girl abducted by 3 men in Texas, stepfather says

5-year-old girl abducted by 3 men in Texas, stepfather says

Vence reportedly was knocked unconscious and when he awoke, he was in the back of the truck with the three men, Maleah and his son, Kourtland and passed out again, Holbrook said.

Maleah's mother, whom authorities have not identified, did not report Vence or the children missing, Holbrook said during the news conference.

While traveling on the Southeast Freeway, Vence "hears a popping noise, like he has a flat tire", Holbrook told reporters.

"[The vehicle] pulls up behind him; two Hispanic males get out- one of them makes a comment, saying Maleah looks very nice, very sweet". When he finally woke up on the side of a highway in Sugar Land, he says his son was with him, but Maleah was not.

He made a decision to walk with his son to Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, arriving between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., Holbrook said.

"I realize there's a lot of blanks in the story".

Meanwhile Vence's own auto, a silver 2011 Nissan Altima which he says was left on the highway, has been reported as stolen.


Maleah Davis was last seen by a family member at around 9 p.m. near State Highway 6 and Highway 59 in Sugar Land.

They were on their way to the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston to pick up Maleah's mother, who was flying in from MA, on Friday night, but they never made it to the airport. He woke up with his two-year-old son on Highway 6, and had to walk to the hospital because no one helped them, he said in this account.

"She needs a lot of care and she was sick this week, too", Holbrook said.

Detective Mark Holbrook explained what he believed happened next at a press conference on May 4. They handed out at least 100 missing person flyers throughout the Sugar Land area in Houston, Sunday.

The vehicle's license plate number, or the identities of the suspects, are unknown, according to Houston Police. "If you have her, just please drop her off somewhere safe".

Vence stated he spent nearly 24 hours drifting in and out of consciousness. He was asked if there's corroboration that Vence was wondering with a toddler. She stands 3 feet tall and weighs 30 to 40 pounds. She is described as a black female with black hair and brown eyes. "She was last seen Saturday night around 8PM wearing a light blue Under Armor jacket, blue jeans, and gray Under Armor tennis shoes with pink and white details".

Those who have information on Maleah's kidnappers or whereabouts are being urged to get in touch with HPD Homicide at 713-308-3600 or at 713-222-TIPS.
