    Missing Girl's Mother Says Her Ex-Fiance May Have Harmed Her
    Maleah Davis, inset, has been missing since Friday, May 3.

    The mother of a missing Texas girl says through a spokesman that she believes the man who reported the 4-year-old was abducted harmed the girl.

    Authorities have been searching for Maleah Davis since Saturday, when Darion Vence told police she was taken by men in a pickup truck after he pulled over on a highway.

    Maleah's mother, Brittany Bowens, stood outside her apartment and sobbed Friday as Quanell X, a local civil rights activist, addressed reporters on her behalf.

    Quanell X made wide-ranging allegations against Vence. He said Bowens acknowledges she should have brought the information to police earlier and now intends to.

    Quanell X said Vence and Bowens were recently in a fight and that the she had broken off their engagement. Authorities have previously described Vence as Maleah's stepfather.

    Houston police declined to comment.
