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.
Detectives said Maleah has undergone multiple brain surgeries, including a recent one in March, and needs lots of care.
Darion Vence, the girl's stepfather, said he was headed to pick up the girl's mother from Bush Intercontinental Airport on Friday night when he heard a popping noise and pulled over, The Houston Chronicle reported.
Vence claimed three Hispanic men stopped in a blue, crew-cab Chevy truck. He reportedly told police he was in and out of consciousness until he came to around 6 p.m. Saturday near Highway 6 in Sugar Land. He and the boy were left on the side of a highway almost 24 hours later, Vence said, but Maleah was missing. Vence said he walked to a nearby hospital where he received treatment and reported her missing.
Sgt Holbrook said Sunday: 'I realize there's a lot blanks in the story, but we are hoping the public can help fill in the blanks'.
Meanwhile Vence's own auto, a silver 2011 Nissan Altima which he says was left on the highway, has been reported as stolen.
Editor's Note: Due to information provided to the media previously, an earlier version of this story said that Maleah Davis was 5 years old.
The stepfather claimed to have been driving his kids in their mother's auto to pick her up from the George Bush Intercontinental Airport, Holbrook said.
The girl's mother waited for Vence at the airport, according to police, but when they failed to show up they did not report him missing until the following morning. The Nissan belongs to Maleah's mother, authorities said.
A traffic camera captured an image of the Altima driving through an intersection in the Houston suburb of Sugar Land just before 3 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.
Authorities have not found any surveillance footage or witness accounts that corroborate Vence's version of events.
The stepfather, Darion Vence, said he and the boy were then dropped off Saturday night in the Sugar Land area, just southwest of downtown. I'd love to know where this vehicle is because somebody drove it.
Police are searching for Maleah Davis who was last seen wearing a light-blue Under Armor jacket, blue jeans and grey Under Armor tennis shoes with pink and white details.
Anyone with information regarding this missing child case should call HPD investigators at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stopper of Houston at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
