HOUSTON — Hundreds of people marched to honor the memory of a 4-year-old Houston girl who was missing for several weeks before her remains were found last month in Arkansas.

Family members of Maleah Davis, as well as area residents, walked through downtown Houston on Sunday.

After the march, people gathered at City Hall. Craig Davis, Maleah's father, spoke briefly, thanking the crowd for their support and saying the march meant so much to his family.

The city of Houston declared Sunday as "Maleah Davis Day." Later in the evening, officials lit up City Hall in pink lights, which was the girl's favorite color.

Derion Vence, the ex-fiance of Maleah's mother, is jailed on a tampering with evidence charge in the case. Authorities say additional charges could be filed.
