5-year-old abducted in southwest Houston. Have you seen Maleah?

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

After slipping in and out of consciousness for a while, Vence told police he regained full awareness around 6 p.m on Saturday, when he and the 2-year-old boy had been dropped off on the Highway 6 roadside in the Sugar Land area - with Maleah gone.

An Amber Alert describes the auto as a blue, crew-cab Chevy pickup truck, possibly a 2010 year model.

The vehicle's license plate number, or the identities of the suspects, are unknown, according to Houston Police.

The motive in the kidnapping incident and its original north Houston location are unknown at this time.

An Amber Alert was issued for 5-year-old Maleah Davis, who was last seen wearing a pink bow in her hair, a light blue zip-up jacket, blue jeans and gray, white and pink sneakers.

According to Holbrook, Vence says he woke briefly to find himself in the back of the truck with the three men and his two children, before passing out again.

Vence claimed three Hispanic men stopped in a blue, crew-cab Chevy truck.

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

According to Holbrook, Vence told detectives that he, Maleah and the 2-year-old were on their way to George Bush Intercontinental Airport Friday night to pick up Maleah's mother, who was flying in from MA.

Investigators said both Vence and his son were treated for their injuries before being released.

"He begins walking around", Holbrook said.

Vence heard a "popping noise", like a popped tire, Holbrook said, and pulled over to check on it.

Vence was driving the mother's vehicle, a silver 2011 Nissan Altima, which is still missing and was reported stolen. He and the boy were left on the side of a highway almost 24 hours later, Vence said, but Maleah was missing.

Police have spoken with Maleah's biological father, who is cooperating with the investigation.

She's had multiple brain surgeries, the most recent only last month.

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

"She's needed a lot of care", the police sergeant said.

Maleah is about 3 feet tall and weighs 30 to 40 pounds.

The National Center for Missing Exploited Children described Maleah as African-American with black hair, and brown eyes.
