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


SUGAR LAND, TX (KTRK/KPRC/CNN) – Police in Texas are searching for a missing 5-year-old after her stepfather says she was abducted when he was carjacked and knocked out. 

An Amber Alert was issued Sunday for 5-year-old Maleah Davis, who was last seen around 6 p.m. Saturday on a Sugar Land, TX, freeway, according to the girl’s stepfather, Darion Vence.

Vence told police that he, Maleah and his 2-year-old son were abducted by three Hispanic men after he pulled over on a Houston highway Friday night.

“One of them makes a comment saying that Maleah looks very nice, looks very sweet,” said Sgt. Mark Holbrook with the Houston Police.

Police say Vence was then hit on the head by one of the men and lost consciousness.

Vence stated he spent almost 24 hours drifting in and out of consciousness. 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.
