A week-long search for the body of a missing N.C. 5-year-old girl ended on Monday but raised other questions of child prostitution, New York Times.com said.
The body is believed to be Shaniya Davis who had been missing since last Tuesday. Police believe she went missing after being offered for prostitution by her mother, Antoinette Davis, CNN.com said.
Davis, 25, was charged with human trafficking and felony child abuse, said Fayettville police.
Davis' sister, Brenda Davis, 20, spoke at her sister trial in her defense.
''I don't believe she could hurt her children,'' Brenda Davis said.
Mario Andrette McNeill, 29, was also charged with Davis' kidnapping. McNeill was seen on surveillance footage with her at a hotel.
About 200 people were apart of the 8-day search party. Many were saddened by the outcome of the search.
''We were hoping that someone could carry her home,'' Syd Severe, who came from Raleigh to help with the search, said. ''It's just sick.''
