Searchers Seeking More Tips on Missing Toddler Joshua Davis Jr.
Week Later: Searchers Seeking More Tips on Missing Toddler
(New Braunfels, TX) -- K-9 dog teams continued searching areas around the home of missing 18-month old Joshua Davis Jr. yesterday, but they also searched areas far from his home, on the other side of town. For the 2nd time in the last week, investigators were back in the area of Hunter Road and Country Ridge Drive with dog search teams scouring more densely wooded areas, searching for signs of the missing boy. New Braunfels Police officials wouldn’t say specifically why they were in that area yesterday, but did say that they were following up on any and all tips they get from the public, and that yesterday’s search off Hunter Road was one of those places they were following up on.
At 8:30 tonight, 18-month old Joshua Davis Jr. will have been missing for 1 full week. New Braunfels Police officers were on scene within minutes of the initial phone call reporting him missing, and immediately began searching the neighborhood and fields off Klein Road and Walnut on one of the coldest nights this winter. That search, and the questioning of family and friends that were at the home the night the boy disappeared, continued into the next morning, when over 100 community volunteers showed up to help look for the missing toddler. And over the last week, the search has now covered a full 2-square mile radius surrounding the boy’s home, the boy’s parents have been interviewed a number of times by police, along with other family members, friends, and neighbors.
Police officials continue to ask for tips from the public. If you have a tip for investigators, call New Braunfels Police directly at 221-4100 or call Crimestoppers anonymously at 620-TIPS.
