Body of Five-year-old Allegedly Sold Into Child Prostitution Found

November 16, 2009

(ChattahBox) — The body of five-year-old Shaniya Nicole Davis allegedly offered by her mother for sex, has been found.  She was reported missing after her mother Antoinette Davis, filed a false police report last Tuesday with the Fayetteville Police Department stating that Shaniya had disappeared from her family’s mobile home. Antoinette Davis, 25 will be in court later today to face initial charges of human trafficking and felony child abuse.  Searchers found the body of Shaniya near Sanford, in central North Carolina along a highway, after receiving reliable information that her body may have been dumped there.
An alleged accomplice, Andrette McNeill, 29, will face kidnapping charges. Hotel surveillance video taken around the same time Shaniya was reported missing showed the girl with McNeill.  Shaniya’s father, Bradley Lockhart, said over the weekend that he raised his daughter for several years but in in October, decided to let her stay with Davis, a decision he now very much regrets.
