Police say Dimesha Davis (left) was supposed to return 5-year-old Amaya Blanton to her grandmother.

DeKalb County police are hoping someone spots a 5-year-old girl whose grandmother hasn’t seen her in more than a week.

Amaya Blanton has been missing since July 20, according to DeKalb police spokesman Sgt. J.D. Spencer.

The girl’s family told Channel 2 Action News her mother, Dimesha Davis, 25, was supposed to return Amaya to the custody of her grandmother after her weekend visitation was over. However, when the time came, Davis and the girl were nowhere to be found.

Police have obtained a warrant charging Davis with interference with custody in connection with the child’s disappearance, Spencer said.

Davis is described as 5 feet, 6 inches tall and 140 pounds with black and brown hair. She was last spotted in a silver Honda Accord at the Pilot gas station on Bouldercrest Road.

Amaya is about 3-foot-9 and weighs about 54 pounds, Spencer said.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact DeKalb police’s Special Victims Unit at 770-724-7710.
