    I also wonder about Maleah's mother. Wouldn't a normal person, especially with a missing child, begin to question their partner? What is she thinking? If LE considers DV a person of interest, wouldn't she? Is she asking him hard questions? Would she turn him in, or would she not? I am not certain if she is real or if her actions are a performance.

    The DMV site states: A 30-Day Permit is valid for a period of 30 days from the effective date reflected on the permit.

    If May 1 is the effective date - I believe you are correct with May 31.

    I think I missed where the car was found. In a paking lot somewhere?

    Yes - vehicle located Thursday morning in Missouri City about 4.5 miles from the hospital where DV was treated.

    JUST IN: we’ve learned it was a customer shopping at Dollar Tree who first spotted the missing car belonging to Maleah’s family. @abc13houston #FINDMALEAH #MaleahDavis

    The fact that BB is not allowed contact with any of her children speaks volumes to me. Obviously there is much more going on behind the scenes than we are privy to, but for CPS services to remove the children and allow no contact by BB seems pretty significant IMO.

    i apologize if this has been asked. trying to keep up with all the posts, but it seems to move quickly after i go to bed each night.

    why on earth would law enforcement allow mom to be on the scene when they found the car? i don't think i've heard of that ever happening before. usually they would shield the parent(s) from any sort of recovery process. right? were they hoping to observe a reaction from her? Moo.

    also, do we know the condition of the tires on the car found?

    IIRC there was news video of an LEO on scene & he said he didn’t know whether the tires had been changed recently. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong. MOO

    Watching the recovery live on Thursday, I noted that crime tape was erected before BB arrived at the Missouri City parking lot, and she did not cross the line-- fortunately.

    As to why BB was present, she was observed earlier near the TES command center, and I believe she likely followed Tim Miller to the reported location of the vehicle.

    IMO, BB had to know that MD was not located with the car when she traveled there.

    At this point, after Wed emergency meeting to bar BB/DV contact with the children, I'm sure LE is observing BB and others.

    I'm hoping the HPD crime lab was able to process the vehicle Thursday as the weather in Houston is expected to be brutal for the next couple of days.

    MOO

    One would think she would be relieved to find her brand new car and see that it wasn't damaged. Surely she didn't think that her daughter would be sitting, waiting for her in the car. I can't pretend to know why she reacted with what seemed like intense grief.

    My only thought at seeing her reaction, was that she was privy to something that we didn't know. Did DV agree to watch Maleah for a couple of days, but BB had been told "if she ticks me off she's getting fed to the 'gators"? Did BB know for sure when she saw the car, that DV had murdered her daughter?

    Did the police take her to the car so that she would finally stop buying into the Mexican abduction theory and start talking?

    Perhaps the 5 yr old is a witness.

    BBM for emphasis - If she is innocent and has no knowledge regarding MD's disappearance, she could of placed all of her hope in finding the car. Tim, media, the police all had been focused on finding the car as a huge piece to the puzzle. If she was trying to focus on that hope and using it to hold herself together, then I think it is possible a tidal wave of emotions hit her upon finding the car without any obvious clues as to where MD is.

    Nosey me went over there yesterday morning since I had an errand to run nearby. You are correct that the paper plate says June 1, 2019 as an expiration date.

    I think it is significant, and, of course what we would expect or at least hope for them to do.
    I also think that had they had the chance to attend the court hearing, she would not have been given custody since apparently neither parent completed parenting classes as they were instructed to.
    If only that court date had come sooner.
    I am also still confused about exactly who had physical custody at the time of Maleah's disappearance, since originally we heard she was staying with the parent and boyfriend on a trial basis, while another, more recent article stated that she was residing with an aunt.
    I'm not sure if that was an error or whether that was ever cleared up.
    So did a relative have temporary physical custody and allow her to visit with her mom for several days, or was she already living with BB and boyfriend?
    I really wish we had more information about the court order.
    Either way, since CPS had legal custody, its a bit too late to give them credit for deciding not to allow contact with the parents.
    They had a professional opinion from a doctor that the child's injuries could not have been caused by the fall that the mother described, as well as a professional opinion that previous injuries were likely caused as a result of physical abuse.
    In my opinion, the child should never have been placed in the home so soon, especially while still recovering from the surgery.

    We have MSM verification that DV had his son (1yo) while BB was gone. He picked him up from daycare on Friday. He showed up at the hospital with him.

    Do we know where the 5yo was during this entire time that BB was gone? Was he even with DV? Or could he have been with his aunt?

    I'm sure she didn't care about the condition of her car, she cared about her daughter.
    I think she wanted to believe her boyfriend's story, but was already doubting it since he would not return her calls.
    I think finding the car confirmed it. She knew he did something to Maleah, that she wasn't kidnapped, and is likely not alive. That would explain her intense grief. It's natural to hold out on hope until there is a reason to believe otherwise. Imo

    And I’ve said many times we all know what happens to a dog that savagely attacks someone. He gets no more chances. Why? Because the risk is too great he will attack again.

    I don’t think someone needs to be on a forum to figure this out. IMO a terse snippet on HLN is all one needs to hear.
    What a ridiculous story he concocted, evidently realizing it was so preposterous he needed to alter it several times.
