Shaniya Davis, Fayetteville NC

Anyone else following the story of this missing little five year old girl? She's weighing heavily on my mind and it doesn't look like there's been any news since yesterdays arrest of the admitted kidnapper.

I thought maybe some North Carolina curlies may have local news??

It's just an alert now but they say they are arresting the mother.

Breaking News: Fayetteville police say they expect to arrest Antoinette Nicole Davis in the disappearance of her 5-year-old girl.

This is the first time I have heard of this story.

Really? I'm not in North Carolina, but I'm sure I saw it on the networks. I hope she's alright!

Well, I really don't watch the news.

Hopefully, she is returned safely and hasn't been harmed.

Antoinette Nicole Davis was charged with human trafficking; felony child abuse prostitution; filing a false police report; and resist, delay, or obstruct an officer, police said.
Oh my god, please tell me that's not true. That poor little girl, I hope they find her soon.

That poor child. You know, you always hope the child is somewhere safe and alright but I don't know how she could be. This is just awful. How do people become such monsters?

Shaniya's father, Bradley Lockhart, told The Associated Press he raised his daughter for several years but last month decided to let her stay with her mother
If the mother really is involved (and honestly, while I do know that some people can be just that horrible to their children, I also know that often the police are WRONG, especially when it comes to blaming parents in situations like these), how could the father NOT know there was something off about the mother? Even if she was a "one night stand" and he didn't know her that well, wouldn't you want to know someone pretty darn well before you handed over your child?


It sounds like every adult in her life failed her.

Maybe someone is talking because I just read an update that there is a ground search going on.

SANFORD — Investigators looking for 5-year-old Shaniya Davis have roped off a wooded road south of Sanford, where an intense search is underway.

Dozens of Fayetteville police officers, Lee County sheriff’s deputies, and other lawmen are scouring woods along Walker Road, which is across from Carolina Trace.

A Highway Patrol helicopter was at the scene earlier today. The area is heavily wooded and swampy.

Residents of the few houses along Walker Road said they helped lawmen in a search this morning.

Theresa Chance, a Fayetteville police spokeswoman, said local, state and federal authorities have been searching several sites between Fayetteville and Sanford today. Shaniya was last seen early Tuesday morning at a Sanford hotel, based on surveillance video.

Mario Andrette McNeill was seen carrying Shaniya into the hotel at 6:11 a.m. They were at the hotel for about an hour, police have said.

McNeill surrendered to police Friday and was charged with first-degree kidnapping. Police say he admitted kidnapping the child but didn’t know where she was now.

On Saturday night, police arrested Shaniya’s mother, Antoinette Davis, and accused her of human trafficking and felony child abuse involving prostitution. The 25-year-old mother also is charged with filing a false police report and interfering with the investigation. She’s in jail with bail set at $51,000.

Davis was not cooperating with detectives, according to arrest documents.

Davis works as a caregiver the Carolina Inn at Village Green, an assisted living facaility on Forsythe Drive, between Village Drive and Robeson Street.

I don't live too far from from Fayetteville and I haven't heard much. I really do hope they find her alive and well, though.

He is a contractor and sometimes has to travel and at the time, he was in Portland Oregon on a job. When he returned, the mother said she wanted to spend more time with Shaniya so he thought she "finally wanted to be a mother" so he gave her a chance.

So in less than a month, Shaniya is missing. I read somewhere else that when she was first born, she was with the mother but after some problem (arrests?) he was given custody.

This is heart-breaking. I just can't believe a mother could sell her child into prostitution as naive as it may sound. There are so many people out there that would love to have children (to love and to cherish) and can't then you have people that sh** them out and do things like that. The poor father how he must be feeling right now.

Dear Lord...

I know this will sound mean, but what was the father thinking?!

The family had a history of CYS visits, the mother was a longterm D&A abuser, the child was conceived in a "one night stand" (which, given everything else, I'm thinking may mean the mother was a prostitute and he was her john), and the father sends his 5yo to live with her mother after a relatively short time of having her act semi-together?

While the child was with her mother didn't the father ever visit to see whether she was doing OK?
