The mother of a little girl who requires critical medical care broke down in tears as she begged for help in locating her missing child.

ABC News reports, Maleah Davis went missing after her step-father claimed the family of three was abducted by three Hispanic men.

Darion Vence told police he was on his way to pick up the child’s mother at Bush airport in Texas when he was forced to pull over after thinking he had a flat tire.

That’s when the alleged suspects approached him while his 2-year-old and 4-year-old were in the car and took the family hostage.

Venice said he was hit over the head and knocked unconscious by the men who were in a 2010 blue Chevrolet pickup truck.

An Amber Alert for the 4-year-old girl was issued following the kidnapping. Her stepfather said he and his son were released near Highway 6 in Sugar Land, just southwest of Houston.

But when he came to Davis was gone.

Davis’ mom, Brittany Bowen tearfully told KTRH:

“If there’s anybody that can help me, please, please, I just want to find my baby. I just want to find her.”

She told KTRK:

“My spirit is so broken, I feel so lost. I can’t concentrate, I can’t focus. It’s so overwhelming for me. It doesn’t seem real.”

The little girl recently underwent brain surgery and requires constant care.

The African-American girl with black hair and brown eyes was last seen wearing a pink bow in her hair, a light blue jacket with a zipper, blue jeans and gray, white and pink sneakers.

She’s about three feet tall and weighs 30 to 40 pounds.

Anyone with information on Maleah Davis whereabouts should call  911 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
