Stepfather Of Missing Houston Girl Maleah Davis Arrested For Tampering With Evidence

According to police, Vence showed up at Sugar Land Methodist Hospital on Saturday night, where an off-duty officer noticed fresh wounds on him.

Vence reported to police that on May 4, he was on his way to George Bush Intercontinental Airport when he heard a sound that made him think his silver Nissan Altima had a flat tire.

Anyone with information on this case, the whereabouts of Maleah Davis, or who knows who sold the gas can (pictures above) to Vence is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

Police said Vence reported that on May 4 he was driving on Highway 59 with Maleah in the vehicle. She also now is making allegations that Vence may have abused or molested Maleah.

When he stopped, Vence said a blue pickup truck pulled up behind him and two Hispanic men got out. Vence is in custody of the Houston Police Department.

Maleah Davis' mother, Brittany Bowens, had recently fought with Darion Vence, a friend said on her behalf during a press conference.

They also say that Vence was observed carrying a full laundry basket from the apartment.

Authorities on Saturday night revealed during a bail hearing that Vence was seen carrying a blue laundry basket with a large black trash bag out of his apartment on May 3 and never returning.

Vence said he regained consciousness late Saturday afternoon on the side of a highway. It's not for the public to answer to them for me.

CNN has reached out to Vence several times this week, but didn't receive a reply. She cried and covered her face as she stood next to the activist. When he got out of the auto, he said that a blue pickup truck pulled up behind him and two men got out, police said during a news conference on May 5. Police spokesman Kese Smith declined to give more detail on the charge.

But despite saying his auto was stolen during the abduction, surveillance footage showed someone dropping him off at the hospital on May 5 using that same vehicle, police said. Police found the vehicle Thursday.

Maleah and her two brothers were taken from their home and placed with a relative after allegations of abuse a year ago, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services told CNN. Maleah was first treated for a unusual lethargy, and a week later, she fell and cut her head while sitting at a table.

On Thursday, the vehicle Vence was driving the night Maleah disappeared was spotted in a shopping center parking lot, just a few miles from where he said he regained consciousness. The doctors discharged Maleah without performing a CT scan, Bowens said.

Child Protective Services showed up a few days later, Bowens said. Even though police are not officially confirming the four-year-old is dead, the source claims, police do not expect to find the child alive. The girl and her brother were both removed from the home until February, when a judge ordered the children to be returned under certain conditions, KPRC reported.
