FOUND DECEASED: Devon Davis, 2 1/2 Yrs., Cleveland, TX, 03/27/12

03/31/12 — It is with extremely heavy hearts that we have to report that little Devon Davis’ body was located today in lake near his home. Please keep Devon’s families and friends in your prayers during their time of grief. We want to thank all of the people from all the different agencies, along with our members who searched in very treacherous conditions to find Devon and bring him home. We want to extend a very special thank you to Gene Robinson, a long time volunteer of Texas EquuSearch for traveling from Central Texas to bring out his drone airplane, which was invaluable in helping bring this family some closure. Additionally, please keep all of the searchers in your prayers too, as this was a very emotional search for everyone involved. We would also like to thank all of the people who brought food, water and bug spray out to the search site. Those donations were very much appreciated by everyone who was out looking for Devon. We will post funeral arrangements when they become available.

03/30/12 — Attention all Texas EquuSearch Members. We will resume our urgent search for 2 1/2 year old Devon Davis on Saturday, March 31, 2012. You need to be there NO LATER THAN 7:00 A.M. FOR BRIEFING. We have an urgent need for all foot searchers only (TES Members Only), to help in the search. The Command Center is located at 11 CR 2901, Cleveland, Texas.

Directions to the Command Center are as follows:

Take Highway 321 out of Dayton. Turn east on Highway 105 at the traffic signal. Go approximately 2 miles and you will come to CR 2518, which has a 4-way stop. Turn left and go 200 yards to first CR on your right – that will be CR 2252. Turn right and travel 7.1 miles to Command Center, which is set up at No. 11 CR 2901.

Alternate Directions:

For those of you that might be coming from a different area, I am providing you with some alternate directions to the search for 2 year-old Devin Davis. My directions are only approximate, but they should easily get you there without getting lost – or driving an un-necessary distance.

Travel on Hwy. 59 towards Cleveland, Texas. Take the FM #105 (W. Southline St.) exit and go east for about 3/10 of a mile and turn left on FM 573 (S. Washington Ave.) and go about ½ mile until you come to FM 105 / FM 321 (E. Houston St.). I think there is a Walgreens Pharmacy at the intersection. Turn right (east) on to FM 105 / FM321 and travel on it for about 6 miles until you come to a three-way intersection (w/traffic light) and a Valero station on you left. Turn left (east) at light (FM 105) and follow the road for about 2 ¾ miles until you come to a four-way stop at FM 2518. Turn left (north) on FM 2518 and go about 300 yards until you get to the first roadway on your right (FM 2252 / Davis–Hill Rd. Turn right (east) and go about 7 miles until you come to the police check point. Tell the police that you have been instructed to come there by Texas EquuSearch, and they will direct you to our check-in desk.

Time is crucial in finding this 2 year-old child, so if possible, please come to this search and help us find Devon. Thank you for your help.
