Search For Missing Maleah Davis Suspended
Texas EquuSearch has temporarily suspended the search for missing 4-year-old, Maleah Davis.
ABC 13 reports that Tim Miller from EquuSearch says none of the leads have led to solving what may have happened to the missing girl.
Most recently, the search focused on the rural area of Rosharon where Derion Vence, the man charged in Maleah’s case, previously said that his mail route would be “a good place to hide a dead body.”
Vence had worked at the local post office in Rosharon from June 2017 to August 2018.
They decided to conduct the search in that area due to the remarks Vence previously made to his fiance’s mother.
“He actually said to his mother-in-law a year ago that, ‘Man, if I ever killed anybody, I’ve got some places down in Rosharon they’d never find the body,'” Miller said. “I talked to Brittany on the phone to see if that was correct or just a rumor, and she said, ‘Yea, that was correct.'”
For two days they searched the area, however, the rising floods have made it hard.
“We feel as though there is a strong possibility that she was burned,” Miller added. “Many of these areas are under water. We’ve tried to find burn spots. We’ve tried to find whatever we can by the air.”
This comes after Vence was spotted on surveillance footage carrying a laundry basket with a black bag in it. A can of gasoline was also found in the family car.
Maleah was reported missing May 4.
