According to a local ABC affiliate, Maleah was wearing a pink bow in her hair with a light blue zip-up jacket, blue jeans and gray, white and pink sneakers. She has black hair and brown eyes and stands 3 feet tall, weighing 30 to 40 pounds.

According to her stepfather, whose name was withheld by authorities, she was abducted by three Hispanic men who were driving a 2010 blue Chevrolet crew cab pickup truck. Maleah’s stepfather claims that he was assaulted but dropped off alongside his son in the Sugar Land area before Maleah’s abductors sped off with her. No license plate number was issued for the truck.

“The motive in the kidnapping incident and its original north Houston location are unknown at this time. Investigators have been interviewing family members throughout the morning,” Houston police said in a statement.

Police believe the incident began in north Houston. Sugar Land is located more than 20 miles southwest of Houston.

“claims that he was assaulted but dropped off alongside his son.”

This statement is throwing up a LOT of red flags in my brain. Is he saying that these three men managed to get two children and another fully grown man into the cab of a truck, beat the crap out of him while driving, then neatly drop him and the son off without any incident?

I hope the girl is found unharmed. Barring that, I pray that whoever had harmed her is brought to justice. I know I would stop at nothing if my daughter went missing.

But, based on the information in this article, I'm just a little skeptical of the stepfather's story.
