ALERT -- STEVE DAVIS MISSING! (found alive)
Myself | 12/28/2003 | Sen Jack S. Fogbound

Posted on 12/28/2003 9:23:31 PM PST by Sen Jack S. Fogbound

Steve Davis was let out of his car, which his wife was driving, on the Hwy 71 near Joplin, NO. His daughter was driving her car behind them, and was supposed to pick him up. Instead of doing so, she whizzed right on by him. The wife got home and realized that Steve was not with them. Steve has not been heard from since being dropped off the Hwy 71 early this morning in the Joplin, Missouri area.

Can any you Joplin, MO freepers help to find him? The Mother is wanting to hear from him!

Heavenly Father, we return to give You thanks for the diligence You have given to oceanperch in the care of her beloved King Vanity. Guide her in any course of treatment that is necessary ... touch him with Your healing hand and take away the distress from the assault on his body. Strengthen him through this ordeal, and provide all the energy oceanperch needs to see him through. Bring them through this crisis quickly, I pray, that both may rest with grateful hearts for Your loving kindness. In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen ...

Sounds like a good idea. I do not know how to post on other state pages.

Tried way back for something and did not have any luck accessing.

Usaully when I am signing off this early in the morning the AM East coasties are just coming on and do a nice job of keeping a thread going.

They are nice and fresh with Java and I am weaning off the Coca Cola to water. : )

So, we have a grown man who had in argument with his wife and got out of the car and hasn't been seen....right? Maybe he's cooling off somewhere and will return home when he's ready? Maybe the panic button was pushed too soon?
Just some thoughts.....certainly wouldn't be the first time a spouse took off for a day or 2.

Thanks for the ping! Hope they find him.

So I wonder if his wife and daughter had cell phones, and I wonder if those phones were charged up and turned on a couple hours after he got dropped off? He could have gone into Joplin, found a phone, and called one of them. Maybe he did, but maybe the phone wasn't on or whatever.

I would assume he went to the nearest town, Joplin, and if he wasn't ready to come home, he would have booked a hotel room? And maybe he just decided to sleep off whatever differences he'd had with the wife?

If I were running the search, these are some of the questions I would ask:

1. Did he and his wife argue often?
2. Has something like this even happened before?
3. Does he have any camping/wilderness skills?
4. Was he dressed appropriately for the weather?
5. Did he have any money, food, cigarettes, with him?
6. Did any of the three people involved have cell phones?

Thanks, trussell!

Wonder what were the circumstances of the wife letting him out of the car. Seems like the children in the car, as well as the wife, could tell searchers/police what was happening right b/f he was let out.

I haven't heard any words yet on Steve's return. Footstomper had to get some rest during the night as do I.

Thanks to all the Freepers for the prayers and the suggestions!

We continue to wait.

Prayers for the family and the stranded son.

From my quick reading, they were traveling northbound, approaching Joplin in their journey. What town was immediately behind them at the point that this occured? Anderson or the exit for Noel?

A lot of the truckers in that area take Alt 71 and go north to Carthage area junction with 44. See
here

for a map. I would try Neosho motels and the Carthage junction motels.

I can't seem to post to the Missouri state board for some reason and, of course, couldn't post it to the Arkansas state board.

So far up to 10:55 am CST, we still haven't heard a word. Footstomper (Steve's mother) appreciates all the prayers and please continue them.

She stayed up all night waiting by the phone and tracking the FR.

Scanners are an excellent way of knowing what's going on in your neighborhood. Before we left a large city, we voted for a NEW COMMUNICATION SYSTEM for our 911 emergency services. It was so updated, that we could no longer listen to the scanner. When the citizens complained about it, the cops said that citizens don't need scanners, and that it can put the cops in harms way....because the bad guys listen too.

This mystery has a thing or two in common with the story of another missing man (also on FR) a few months ago. In that incident, the man was found! Also, in that incident, I got the feeling that the wife wasn't keeping her mother-in-law up-to-date on everything happening. So maybe, just maybe, there are promising developments that not all the family knows about yet. Hope so!!

LE was notified and the family was told that, basically, nothing could be for 24 hours. The missing persons reporting period. (see earlier in the thread)
Not sure about media. I know that several people advised them to get the media in on this but I'm unsure as to what the family has done in this regard.

Another poster said they upadated their community as well the problem was the older volenteers could no longer hear for calls over the scanner.

Sure came in handy for the guy that hauls water for us this morning to hear road conditions via the county road workers and one main road was cloased due to a live wire on the round also bar reports since we live on the bay/ocean. My sons best bud fishes/crabs and he listens for his boat.

Footstomper has informed me that Steve Davis has been found as of 3 hours ago!

I do not have all the details but he is OK, that is the main thing!

Footstomper wants to say a BIG THANK YOU for your many prayers, suggestions, and the help. And I thank you as well! All this shows that the FREEPERS are a pretty cohesive bunch!

I remember that guy if I remember a hugh part of the story was left out seems he had a meth/crank addiction.


I asked the Sen. Fog about the chance the guy maybe had a little bit to much holiday spirits perhaps why wifey was driving and he may have p o'ed her off but Sen. says he was a teetotaler.

Prayer bump continues.


Happy New Years Scow!

He did??

Well, this one just seems the average argument in which one person gets disgusted and says "let me out of the car" and the other one obliges. No relationship is perfect. Glad it turned out all right.

Now that he's been found safe, I can mention one of those same situations: this would have been 20+ years ago. Father and mother and their (7, I think) young children, traveling along in a large sedan. Kids, who were young, asleep in back seat. Parents have argument. Mother says, "that does it, let me out, I'd rather walk!" After some further arguing, he lets her out rather than argue any more. It was night. She disappeared. A day or so later her body was found in a dumpster near an overpass, not far from where she was let out. Terrible!
