Derion Vence , Maleah ’ s stepfather, said his 1-year-old son was with him and was not harmed. The three men fled with Maleah in a blue Chevrolet crew cab pickup truck, possibly 2010 or similar model according to police. Investigators said Vence described the kidnappers only as Hispanic men.

Joe D. Vence believes police need to ask Maleah's mother tougher questions.

"She told my son the night of the disappearance, I'm about to get a Lifetime movie out of this," Joe D. Vence said.

Derion Vence initially helped Bowens and Maleah’s biological father, Craig Davis, Jr., search for the girl until they threatened Derion, his father claimed.

“When he went out that first night to find Maleah he got mobbed,” Joe D. Vence said. “Then he didn’t understand. He didn’t trust her or her baby’s father because they came at him real crazy.”

Joe D. Vence also claimed blood tied to Maleah found in his son’s apartment hallway and bathroom by police came from another child.

“It’s (Maleah’s) brother’s blood from his toothbrush,” Joe D. Vence said. “It’s not her blood.”

When Cedeno asked for clarification, Vence explained, “…that’s why it says traces of blood related to Maleah because it’s her brother’s. It’s like the (district attorney) was really pressing to get something going on this case because of the publicity.”

Detectives insist they tested for family DNA and stand by their warrant. They also stand by last week’s search of a field along Derion Vence’s old post office route.

“My son never worked on a post route ever in his life,” Joe D. Vence told Cedeno.

He says claims that Derion Vence was abusive to Maleah and Bowens just aren't true.

"He's not a violent person," Joe D. Vence said."He has no violent past at all. Why would you leave your children at home with him if he's doing all these things?"
