Details of Disappearance

Davis was last seen leaving a home in the 3000 block of Woodrow Avenue in Richmond, Virginia on May 28, 2016. She is believed to have gotten into a light-colored sedan with someone. She suddenly disappeared, leaving her cellular phone, purse, car, checkbook and clothes behind, and her family never heard from her again.

Prior to her disappearance, Davis worked as a registered nurse with the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. She had had to quit her job after 22 years, however, and was living off disability payments. Her sister stated she seemed depressed and mostly stayed in the house.

According to medical insurance records, after her initial disappearance Davis checked herself into the Tucker Pavillion, a local psychiatric hospital. When she was discharged she told staff members she was going out of state, but it hasn't been confirmed that she did in fact leave Virginia. Her bank account was untouched after she went missing, except for one instance when someone out of state withdrew $10 from her account a couple of years later. This lead went nowhere, however.

Davis's family hopes she is still alive and will get in touch with them. Since her disappearance there have been no significant leads. Her case remains unsolved.
