CLIFFWOOD BEACH - A Monmouth County mother is in shock after learning that her daughter, missing for years, is dead.

Detectives in Jackson County, N.C. say they responded to a motel after receiving reports of physical injuries to a 4-year-old girl. EMS personnel rushed the child to a hospital, where she died.

Billie Jo Brown, of Cliffwood Beach, says she is the mother of the girl. She claims her ex-boyfriend, Eric Davis, took the girl and the couple's other child two years ago and never returned.

The couple had previously been under investigation by the state, but Brown says the two had regained custody shortly before Davis left.

Brown is headed to North Carolina, where she will attempt to regain custody of her surviving child.

Davis, 23, has been arrested and charged with intentionally inflicting serious bodily injury. More charges may be filed.

Davis is currently being held on $1 million bond.
