  • Details of Disappearance
    Davis' boss dropped him off at his home off Spring Branch Road on Friday evening, November 17. When his boss came to pick him up the following Sunday evening, he was told by Davis' live-in girlfriend that she had last seen him at about 11 that morning, when he walked out of the trailer they shared.

    The family and law enforcement searches over the years have produced no substantial results. In the summer of 2006, the Dunn Police Department received a map with the location of the body of an alleged homicide victim. The map pinpoints the location as being close to the trailer park where Davis' used to live. This, and the name of "Jimmy Davidic" on the map, have led to speculation that the map is in reference to Mr. Davis. Ground penetrating radar and foot searches have been conducted in the area. Local and state law enforcement are involved in Mr. Davis' case.

    His social security number has not been active since his disappearance. Mr. Davis has had previous connections to South Carolina and Maryland.

    He has left his home in the past for extended periods of time, but always stayed in touch with his family, attending significant events such as his Mother's birthday, and Mother's Day. Foul play is suspected in his case.
