The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Nation & World -

The man who re­ported a 4-year-old Texas girl had been ab­ducted from him last week­end was ar­rested Satur­day near Hous­ton.

Hous­ton po­lice said they found “blood ev­i­dence” in the apart­ment of Dar­ion Vence that matches that of the miss­ing 4-year-old girl, Maleah Davis.

U.S. Mar­shals’ south­ern dis­trict spokesman Al­fredo Perez said that Vence was taken into cus­tody Satur­day at his brother’s house in Su­gar Land, Texas, about 22 miles south­west of Hous­ton.

In a state­ment on the ar­rest, po­lice said he has been charged with tam­per­ing with ev­i­dence.
