Camisha Hollis' longtime, live-in boyfriend, Marvin Young, 36, was arrested Tuesday on child abuse charges.

Young was arrested on three counts of Child Abuse By Neglect - No Serious Injury, three counts of Domestic Disturbing the Peace and Criminal Mischief Under $500 for damage that occurred to an Omaha Police Department interview room. Young and Hollis have three minor children together.

An Endangered Missing Advisory has been issued for Camisha Hollis. Hollis, 34, was last seen at her residence at 5604 N 57 Avenue around 4 a.m. Monday morning.

According to a police report, Hollis’ mother, Martha Hollis, went to the couple’s home Monday afternoon and found the three young children alone. The couple's 6-year-old daughter told officers she heard her parents fighting before she fell asleep. When she woke up she was unable to find her parents.

"There's no way she would've left her three kids alone," Martha Hollis told 6 News. "In my head, I'm thinking he played a major role in Camisha's disappearance."

Police say they are gravely concerned about Hollis' well-being. The Homicide Unit is currently leading the investigation; however, officers from multiple assignments are assisting.

Police said they are following up on multiple leads, to include looking into any history of domestic violence.

"In the 18 years they've been together, there was always domestic violence," Martha said.

Hollis is typically seen wearing Victoria Secrets "Pink" clothing and has a tattoo on her left forearm. She is 5'6" and weighs 195 pounds. She may be in her vehicle, a red, 2018 Hyundai Elantra with Nebraska plate VSF459.

Anyone with any information regarding Ms. Hollis or should contact the Omaha Police Homicide Unit at (402)444-5636 or Omaha Crime Stoppers at 444-STOP.
