Mom Holds Out Hope Maleah Davis Will Be Found Alive as Search Nears 3 Weeks

Mom Holds Out Hope Maleah Davis Will Be Found Alive as Search Nears 3 Weeks 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.

Police, including divers, were searching a rural area southwest of Portland.

"It's taking an incredible toll on everybody who's out there. They're working around the clock, following all leads," Upkes said.

Court papers show Fretwell went to court last year to establish that Wolfe was William's father. A DNA test verified her claim, and Fretwell then filed a petition seeking more than $1,000 a month in child support from Wolfe, court records show.

Wolfe is married to another woman, police confirmed.

Upkes said there were aspects of the case he couldn't reveal because the investigation was ongoing. He did say there are no additional suspects.

He said Wolfe would be lodged in the jail in Yamhill County, where the search is being carried out.

Fretwell's Facebook page is full of smiling photos of her and William, including one in the hospital right after his birth. She is a student at Western Oregon University.

In her profile, she wrote "My son is my world ... Future WOU graduate, BIG DREAMER!"

Fretwell's sister did not immediately return a message sent through Facebook.
