Maleah was missing, Vence said.

Darion Vence's vehicle reportedly stolen auto seen on surveillance footage in Sugar Land about 2:45 p.m. Saturday.

Authorities in Houston are searching for a 5-year-old girl whose stepfather said she may have been kidnapped, Houston police said.

"We're hoping, the goal of the press conference is to figure out what really is true, what really happened", Holbrook said.

At a media conference police say they do not know the motive behind the kidnapping. They handed out at least 100 missing person flyers throughout the Sugar Land area in Houston, Sunday.

Three men got out of the blue Chevy truck, and two began to engage with him.

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

"This week she was sick, too".

Around 50 rockets fired at Israel from Gaza: Israeli army
The Israeli military said some 5,200 Palestinians had amassed along the frontier, but did not immediately provide further comment. Reuters also reported that Gaza health officials said four Palestinian bystanders were wounded in one of the Israeli strikes.

Volunteers from a group called Texas EquuSearch set out on foot and by ATV in a field in northeast Houston, where Vence told police he was assaulted by Maleah's kidnappers after he noticed something wrong with the Bowens' silver 2011 Nissan Altima that he was driving and pulled over.

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'. He said the next time Vence woke up, about 6 p.m. on Saturday, he was on the side of the Southwest Freeway with his toddler son in Sugar Land, some 22 miles southwest of Houston.

Shortly after pulling over, Vence told police that a blue Chevrolet Crew Cab pick-up truck (photo shows the likeness of the truck involved) pulled up behind him and two Hispanic males in their 30s approached his vehicle.

One purportedly made a comment that "Maleah looks very nice, looks very sweet", Holbrook said, quoting Vence's statement to officers.

Maleah's mother who was returning to Houston from attending her father's funeral in MA, on the other hand was left at the airport and had to be picked up by her mother, Brenda Bowens.

The Houston Police Department initially said Maleah Davis was last seen around 9 p.m. Saturday night, and was thought to be with three unknown males in a blue Chevrolet pickup truck.

Meanwhile Vence's own auto, a silver 2011 Nissan Altima which he says was left on the highway, has been reported as stolen. "She has a attractive energy and we just want to find her at this point". She is African-American, with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink bow in her hair, a light blue zip-up jacket, blue jeans, and sneakers, police said.
