HEMPSTEAD COUNTY, Ark. (KSLA) — The date has been set to honor the life of Maleah Davis with a bridge dedication ceremony in Southwest Arkansas.

The event will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019. The ceremony will dedicate the Red Lake Bridge over Interstate 30 at Exit 18 as the “Maleah Davis Memorial Bridge.”

Davis was a 4-year-old girl from Houston, Texas, who was reported missing in early May.

Her remains were discovered May 31 in the area of the on-ramp at Exit 18.

On June 4, Hempstead County Sheriff James Singleton requested a permit from the Arkansas Transportation Department for a sign to honor not just the memory of Maleah Davis, but other exploited children throughout the nation.
