FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

Fresno police officers are still searching for 19-year-old Maurice Fields.

Police say he hit and killed 50-year-old Loterlo Davis Senior who was walking down the street.

Now, a single lit candle illuminates the spot where Davis lost his life.

Longtime friend Rita Gondek, a friend of Davis says, "Damon was a real sweetheart! He always said God Bless you. If you don't have anything, he would give you $5.00 or a little bit of change. He did little things like that, he was a giver."

Davis, a member of the North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians of California had been living with Gondek and her son for the past year.

Gondek says he suffered from dementia, and because of that she would often walk with him to the store

However, Wednesday she decided to take a nap.

When he didn't come home she worried.

Witnesses say the 50-year-old was killed instantly, after being struck by a car.

A Lexus, police say driven by Maurice Fields.

Police say the 19-year-old driver then took off with his 7-year-old niece, but left behind his 9-year-old nephew who was pinned inside.

Gondek says Davis leaves behind a son and daughter, who live in the North Fork area.
