Derion Vence, the man whom authorities say was the last person to see missing 4-year-old Maleah Davis, has been charged with tampering with evidence - namely a corpse - in the disappearance. Texas EquuSearch has been looking for Maleah for a week now --- since the story of her abduction was told to police by Vence.
Vence reported a week ago Friday night he was on his way to Bush Intercontinental Airport with Maleah and his 1-year-old son to pick up the girl's mother, Brittany Bowens. He said that he pulled over near Greens Road and as he was checking his vehicle, he claims three Hispanic men in a 2010 blue Chevrolet crew cab pickup truck pulled up. He and his son were safe - but he said Maleah was missing. His story has changed from time to time and Maleah's mother has told police of some suspicious things Vence had done.
Vence is in Harris County jail with no bond.
