Family searches for answers on missing man

By Sherea Harris

BESSEMER, AL (WBRC) - A Jefferson County man is missing and his mother fears the worst.

Reggie Davis, a father of two, was last seen two weeks ago on Memorial Day. He was at Bar-b-que at a home in Bessemer.

He hasn't been to work and didn't even pick up his pay check.

Davis' mother Gwen Shields says he told her someone had threatened his life, but she says he wouldn't say what was going on.

Brighton Police Chief Johnnie Johnson, Jr. says there is no reason to suspect foul play at this point and he wasn't aware of any death threats against Davis.

"That would lend itself to a greater concern but we are looking at this as trying to locate him. There is no reason for us now to think any otherwise," said Chief Johnson. "If something pops up that we think violence has occurred then we will start looking differently."

"I hope he's ok, but I don't feel like he is. In my heart I don't," said Gwen Shields.

Last week his SUV was found in the parking lot of a grocery store in Tuscaloosa.

Brighton Police will process the vehicle for evidence.

The family is offering a cash reward for information about where Davis is or what happened to him.

Call Brighton Police if you know anything about the case. The number is 205-425-8934.
