    Details of Disappearance

    Davis was last seen in his hometown of Tallahassee, Florida on February 5, 1981. His truck was discovered in the Tallahassee Regional Airport parking lot later in the day. A parking stub was located inside the vehicle; it had been time-stamped 1:18 p.m. on the date of Davis's disappearance. Davis never mentioned any possible travel plans to his family and was not depressed at the time he vanished. He has never been heard from again.

    Davis was married in 1981 and also owned a successful contracting business. He is a graduate of Florida State University. Davis's hobbies include writing, hunting and fishing. He spent time in Montana and Idaho in the 1970s. His family had also owned property in Maine at one time. It is possible that Davis chose to leave his residence of his own accord, but his family continues to search for him.
