Duncan man missing has police on active search

Silver Alert issued for Marshall Davis

DUNCAN — Duncan Police Department has issued a Silver Alert for Marshall Davis, 71, who was last seen early Monday morning.

The alert was released at 9:14 a.m. today on Davis,  white male. He is considered to be in danger as he has medical issues.

DPD Investigative Division Capt. Jay Evans said Davis’ wife reported him missing about 10:45 p.m. Monday.

“He works at a construction site, WW Builders, here in Duncan, but they work at a Durant site. They come and pick him and took him to the place, here in Duncan and discovered they didn’t need him that day,” Evans said. “Someone supposedly took him home, but we haven’t found out who gave him a ride.”

Evans said when it got late in the evening, Davis’ wife who had not seen him since that morning and thought he was at work all day, began to worry. He did not wake his wife up after supposedly returning home Monday morning.

“She gets concerned, it gets late. She calls the guys and they say someone brought him home. We still don’t know who supposedly brought him home.”

“He’s not senile. He has a pacemaker, defibrillator and heart medication which he hasn’t taken. He doesn’t have it with him. He has a cell phone but it’s turned off. We have been unable to locate him anywhere.”

Evans said investigators have spoke with immediate family members and Davis’ coworkers.

“Everything is supposedly fine and nobody has any idea of what happened to him. WW Builders is the last known place he was seen. It’s over on Industrial Drive, just off  Cypress and Industrial over by the cemetery.”

Evans said he personally came out to get involved in the investigation Monday evening and that he and other detectives and officers have checked the parking lots, including the Chisholm Trail Casino and Wal-mart. Detectives Donny Foraker and Cory Morris are also active on the case.

“The children are telling me he never goes anywhere without his wife, not even to the store,” he said.

He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt under a white shirt with blue buttons, jeans and work boots. His vehicle is a 1982 white Toyota pickup truck with Oklahoma license plate, 542BLU. The passenger door on the pickup is tan colored.

If anyone has any information, contact Duncan Police Department at 580-255-2112.
