FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) - A search warrant says a man charged with kidnapping a 5-year-old North Carolina girl picked her up in front of her home and drove her to the hotel where she was last seen alive.

Multiple media reported the search warrant reveals that 29-year-old Mario McNeill told police he took Shaniya Davis from her home in a Fayetteville mobile home park to the Sanford hotel last week.

The girl's body was found Monday off a road near Sanford.

Antoinette Davis is charged with trafficking her daughter and child abuse involving prostitution.

Police say they collected hair and fibers, clothes, and a straw from McNeill's 1997 Mitsubishi Galant.

Police said Wednesday no additional charges will be filed until jurisdiction questions are resolved.
