An Amber Alert was issued in Texas on Sunday for Maleah Davis after she was taken by the three men while traveling with her stepfather, Darion Vence, and his two-year-old son, police say. The three had been driving to pick up the children's mother from the George Bush Intercontinental Airport when what they thought might have been a popped tire caused them to pull off to the side.
Maleah's stepdad, Darion Vence, told detectives that he, Maleah and his son were on their way to the airport Friday night to pick up Maleah's mother, who was flying in from Massachusetts, Holbrook said. His daughter was gone.
Police said Vence's Nissan Altima is also missing.
The search for Maleah Davis continues following an Amber Alert Sunday. A blue pickup truck pulled up behind the vehicle and two Hispanic males got out, according to Vence.
According to the child's stepfather, 3 men in a 2010 blue Chevrolet crew cab pickup truck abducted her, her 2-year-old brother and her stepfather around 9 p.m. Saturday.
She's had multiple brain surgeries, the most recent only last month.
As volunteers passed out missing person fliers and helped Texas police search for her 4-year-old daughter, Brittany Bowens broke down in tears Monday as she expressed her darkest fears for the little girl who recently underwent brain surgery.More news: Upcoming Movies That Could Beat Avengers: Endgame At The Box Office

Police said they were able to look at the license plate of the vehicle that Vence was driving, which belonged to Maleah's mother. "She was last seen Saturday night around 8PM wearing a light blue Under Armor jacket, blue jeans, and gray Under Armor tennis shoes with pink and white details".
"We're hoping the public can give us any information about anybody who has seen Darion during that period of time because he doesn't really know where he was or what's going on there", Holbrook said.
"She's needed a lot of care", the police sergeant said.
That's when Vence told police he was hit on the head and lost consciousness. 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 chose to walk with his son to Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, arriving between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., Holbrook said.
Maleah is described as a African-American female with black hair and brown eyes. She stands 3 feet tall and weighs 30 to 40 pounds.
Anyone with information on Maleah's whereabouts is urged to contact Houston police at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
