On July 5, officials located Davis’ dog but did not find Davis.

Sharon Davis Clemmer, Mr. Davis’ daughter, posted on social media that the family continues to pray he can be located.

“Dad’s dog Buddy made an appearance again last night,” she wrote early Wednesday. “Opinions are many, but Buddy is in the same area which could be his comfort zone because Dad’s around.

“Our faith is strong, and we are hopeful! The most important thing keep PRAYING!! Thank you all!!”
