: MediaTakeOut.com has a VERY serious report for you today. A 5 year old Fayetteville, North Carolina girl named Shaniya Davis has been missing since last Tuesday. She was first discovered missing when her mother filed a police report claiming she hadn’t seen her daughter since 5 am that morning.
Here’s what we know so far. Shaniya, who was reported missing at 6:53 am Tuesday morning, was seen on a surveillance video being carried into motel by a man named Mario Andrette McNeill. Mario has since turned himself into police and admitted to kidnapping Shaniya, although her whereabouts are still unknown.
Here’s where the story gets even more tragic. According to the Fayetteville Observer, Antoinette Nicole Davis, Shaniya’s mother, has been charged with human trafficking, child abuse involving prostitution, as well as filing a false police report. The police claim that Shaniya’s mother actually SOLD HER to that man so that he could MOLEST her!!!
MediaTakeOut.com learned that Shaniya had only been living with her mother for three weeks at the time of her disappearance. Her father, Bradley Lockhart, had been caring for her for the past four years. Shaniya’s dad only let her go to live with Antoinette because she had found a place to live and had held a job for six months.
The dad is quoted as saying, “I just wanted her to be a mother . . . she was never part of her life.” Now, he just wants his daughter back. ” I just want her to come back safe, my friend. I love her very much, and I hope she is okay.”
