Family of missing man collects food and money to assist local ministry

Loretta Davis and Freddie Lopez stood near the front entrance to Walmart in Conway Saturday making customers aware than Randy Davis has been missing since January.

Relatives of a missing Conway man collected food and money for Churches Assisting People (CAP) on Saturday at Walmart.

The family of Randy McLaurin Davis were at Walmart Saturday to collect food and money for CAP in honor of Davis and to keep his name and picture in the public eye in hopes that someone will come forward with information that leads to his whereabouts.

“We’re not giving up,” said Loretta Davis, mother of the missing man. “None of the family is giving up. We’re going to keep on looking until we find him.”

The 26-year-old has been missing since Jan. 21 when he was seen leaving a home on Marshland Road in Aynor. He was wearing a gray jacket and blue jeans when last seen.

Davis is described as about 6-feet tall and 150 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Although they have not received any information regarding their son’s disappearance, his parents are hopeful someone will eventually come forward.

“It’s hard,” Loretta Davis said. “It’s getting worse it seems like, but we want to keep his name out in the public.”

Saturday’s drive was the second time the family has held a food drive in his honor. They donated food and $100 to CAP in late May in honor of Davis.

Lauren Davis said the family has held several unsuccessful searches for his son in the area where he was last seen.

“The more you hear the worse it gets,” he said. “A lot of people like to run their mouth, like they think it’s a joke. It’s not a joke. It’s not funny. You hear all kinds of things, mostly rumors.”

Davis, who hasn’t worked since his son disappeared, rides around a lot, just searching and hoping for any kind of lead or information.

“People tell me he’s here and I go and look,” he said. “We’re going to keep on going. We can’t forget him, not until we find him. It’s tough.”

Anyone with information regarding Davis is asked to call 911 or (843) 915-8031.
