Houston police have issued an Amber Alert and are asking for the public’s help finding a 5-year-old Maleah Davis.
Police are asking the public for help in finding the girl, who was last seen on Friday night when three mystery men beat up her stepfather, Darion Vence, 26, and briefly held him and her 2-year-old brother hostage before dumping Vence and the toddler on the side of the road and abounding with Maleah, police said.

She was reported missing by her stepfather, Texas, who says she was kidnapped by three men, sparking an Amber Alert. The 5-year-old girl’s stepfather told Houston Police that Maleah was abducted after he was assaulted by men he thought had stopped to help him when he pulled over with car trouble.
Darion Vence, Maleah’s stepfather, said his 1-year-old son was with him and was not harmed. The three men fled with Maleah in a blue Chevrolet crew cab pickup truck, possibly 2010 or similar model according to police. Investigators said Vence described the kidnappers only as Hispanic men. Vence is not being considered a suspect, but police say they are working with him to figure out exactly what happened.
