Weatherly said Davis-Webb “admitted taking Vicodin/alcohol prior to driving” and police recovered Vicodin from her purse when they searched her. Davis-Webb “apparently didn’t have a prescription for it,” Weatherly said. The Mother pleaded no contest to misdemeanor child endangerment and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance April 10th. Alameda County Superior Court Judge Carol Brosnahan placed her on three years’ probation, issued a protective order mandating that she do no harm to Daphne, referred her to a domestic violence/anger management program, and ordered her to attend 26 parenting classes. Brosnahan also ordered Davis-Webb to destroy all her Vicodin and pay a $350 fine.
Webb was awarded custody of his daughter seven months ago. Daphne lived with her father and grandmother.
Davis-Webb did not address the incident at a press conference last month but did discuss the pain she was suffering because her daughter was missing.
“You have no idea how heart breaking this is. How devastating it is,” said Davis-Webb. “There’s no way to express how you feel when your child is missing and you don’t know where they are and you can’t find them and you can’t hug them.”
Both parents are cooperating in the investigation. Police have also asked for people other than his mother who may have seen Webb with his daughter in the days and hours before her disappearance to contact them.
Webb said he is unaware of who might have seen him with his daughter.
“I’ don’t know who saw me to tell you the truth. But I’m a homebody. Daphne is at home, my mom is at home,” said Davis.
