For more than a month rescue crews, volunteers and family members have been searching for Davis and clues to his disappearance.

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

On July 8, officials said they had received “new leads” in the case and that they were restarting their efforts to find Davis.

Since then, little information has been reported on the search.

Family members first offered a $5,000 reward for anyone who help find Davis. That reward has been raised to $10,000.

Anyone with information about Davis’s whereabouts should call the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department at 662-286-5521.
