Police: Glassport man arrested after missing teen from Kentucky found in his apartment

Police: Glassport man arrested after missing teen from Kentucky found in his apartment A Glassport man is facing several charges after police said a missing teenager from Kentucky was found in his apartment. Police had been investigating the disappearance of the 16-year-old girl from her home in Paducah. At one point, police went to look for the girl at an apartment in a building on Monongahela Avenue in Glassport. An investigator searched the space where Rory Shelton, 56, lives but did not locate the teen. The building manager later spoke with police and sent then a video that police said shows the girl with Shelton on May 3. Police went back to the apartment on May 7 and located the girl inside. She was naked at the time.

HOUSTON — The mother of a missing 4-year-old Texas girl was heckled outside a courtroom by a group of people who questioned if she had done enough to protect her daughter before her disappearance.

Brittany Bowens, Maleah Davis's mother, was yelled at Monday following a canceled court hearing for Derion Vence, her ex-fiance who's charged in connection with the girl's disappearance.

Outside a Houston courtroom, Quanell X, a community activist and spokesman for Bowens, told reporters that her main concern is finding out what happened to Maleah. He has alleged that Vence might have abused Maleah.

But as Quanell X spoke, he was drowned out by a group, including family members of Maleah's father, who yelled "justice for Maleah" and "murderer."

Vence remains jailed on a charge of tampering with evidence.

Surveillance footage pictured Maleah, 4, entering her Houston apartment with her mother Brittany Bowens’s ex-fiance, Derion Vence, on April 30. It was the last time the little girl was seen alive, authorities said. The mother of Maleah Davis is holding out hope her daughter will be found unharmed, though it's been nearly three weeks since the little girl was pictured with the man authorities suspect is responsible for her disappearance. “As a mother, I want to hope that she is [still alive],” Brittany Bowens told KTRK-TV.
