Police: No Persons Of Interest In Missing Baby Case
Mystery Lingers Nearly 6 Months After Joshua Davis' Disappearance‎

Five months after 18-month-old Joshua Davis disappeared from his family's New Braunfels home on a cold February night, police said the tips continue to come in and they are pursuing each one in hopes one of the calls could be the needed break in the case.
"I wouldn't characterize anyone specifically as a person of interest or any type of suspect," said Capt. Mike Penshorn, spokesman for the New Braunfels Police Department.
Yet some in the community who have followed the case wonder when or if Joshua's parents will ever know whether their little boy is still alive or if he's been abducted.
"I don't think so, unless someone confesses," said Vickie Ballew, who lives in the area near Joshua's home.
Ernest Gomez, another New Braunfels resident, said it is hard to say what the outcome will be.
"It's been so long, I don't know if that mystery is going to be solved or not," Gomez said.

Missing toddler has town worried about justice

Police in New Braunfels, TX, say they are continuing to get tips and new leads in a case involving a toddler who disappeared nearly six months ago.

Since 18-month-old Joshua Davis disappeared from his family's home, his anxious parents still don't know if he was abducted or even alive.

Federal, state and local investigators are still getting tips even nearly six months later, which is what they want, but even then the news can be hard to stand.

Missing Toddler's Parents React To Anthony Outcome
Both Said Judgment Day Awaits Caylee Anthony's Mother

Sabrina Benitez and Josh Davis sat on the steps outside their New Braunfels home with photos of their missing son on the front door and windows, pondering Casey Anthony's acquittal of her 2-year-old daughter's murder and ultimately brief sentence for lying to investigators.
Both said her judgment day awaits.
"She should not have gotten away with it," Benitez said.
Her husband said most troubling was that "no one gets convicted or does any time for it."
"I'm hoping nothing like this happens in my son's case," Benitez said if her 18-month-old son Joshua's fate is sadly the same as Caylee Anthony's.
Unlike Caylee's mother who did not notify Florida authorities for 31 days, Joshua's mother said, "I called within 10 to 15 minutes."
She said New Braunfels police were summoned after friends and family already at their house had searched the premises.
Yet like Casey Anthony, the couple said some in the community cast doubt and suspicion on them.
"It kind of ate me up like, wow, people really think we would be that cold-hearted to do something to our son or make him disappear," Davis said.
However, Joshua's father said he has learned to ignore those sentiments.
"People are going to have their opinions anyway, so there's nothing I can do to change that," he said. "God knows we had nothing to do with his disappearance."
Adding to their ordeal, they said their new baby Jayden, born two weeks after Joshua vanished, was turned over to a family member by Child Protective Services.
Mary Walker, CPS spokeswoman, said it was done only after the mother showed traces of marijuana.
"(Benitez's) mom was taking care of him. Now we're living with him, so we did everything we needed to do," Davis said.
Although Jayden is only five months old, his mother said he responds to Joshua's photographs.

Six Months Later: Still No Sign of Joshua Davis, Jr.

It’s been six months since the residents of New Braunfels came together to help find the then 18-month old Joshua Davis, Jr., who disappeared from his home in the 26-hundred block of Savannah Hill Circle on a bitterly cold night in early February. Since then, New Braunfels Police, with the help of the Texas Rangers and the FBI, have tried to uncover some sort of clue that would lead them to the whereabouts of the missing boy, who would now be about 2 years old. His disappearance remains a mystery, and, to New Braunfels Police, an open investigation that sits heavily on the minds of detectives that want to put an end to the case. There is still a reward of up to 20-thousand dollars for information that leads to a resolution in this case. If you have any information regarding the disappearance or location of Joshua Davis, Jr., New Braunfels Police want to hear from you right away at 221-4100, or if you prefer to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 620-TIPS.

Parents mark birthday of missing New Braunfels toddler with prayer

It was bitterly cold the February night that Joshua Davis Jr. went missing from his home in New Braunfels.

It had snowed that morning, so the 18-month-old's parents, Joshua Davis and Sabrina Benitez, said they had kept him indoors. The cold aggravated Joshua's asthma, a condition that had sent him to the hospital a handful of times since he was born.

Benitez said Joshua was last seen watching TV with family in the living room just before 8 p.m.

And then he was gone.

The search involved the FBI, Texas Rangers and search-and-rescue dogs. Hundreds of volunteers combed brushy scrubland and dense thickets near the subdivision where the family lived.

Six months later, Joshua is still missing. No body has been found. No suspects. And no solid leads.

Still, Davis and Benitez are hopeful he's alive. Today, they plan to mark his second birthday, which is on August 16, with a prayer vigil.

"It's still his day," Davis said. "It's still his birthday."

Jerome Davis, Joshua's grandfather, said he had been resting in his bedroom — his knees were aching from arthritis — when Benitez came in to ask if he had seen Joshua that night in February. They searched the house, and then, he said, he called 911 because Benitez couldn't — she was shaking too hard.

"He was the sweetest little kid you would ever want to see," the elder Davis said, shaking his head. "That was my baby. Always smiling."

Davis and Benitez no longer live at the house on Savannah Hill Circle. They've moved in with Benitez's mother, who lives about three miles away, with their new son, Jeidan. Benitez gave birth to him two weeks after Joshua was reported missing.

Cary Clack: One boy, missing but not forgotten

People disappear every day in this country. We become acquainted with these missing strangers through fliers taped on the doors and windows of convenience and grocery stores and tacked onto telephone poles. Rarely do we learn their fate.....

...... Rarely do we witness an Elizabeth Smart-type ending in which, despite enduring unspeakable brutality, the child is returned alive to family.

Which brings us to Joshua Davis Jr., who was 18 months old when he went missing on Feb. 4 from his home in New Braunfels. In a mobile home full of adults, including his parents, the boy somehow disappeared into the cold night, and the hundreds of volunteers who searched the area never found a trace of him.

Tuesday will be Joshua's second birthday. We know nothing of his fate or who's responsible for his disappearance, but that he is alive to celebrate is the only birthday wish that matters; that he's returned to the people who love him is the only present — or presence — anyone wants. The only gift that can be offered to him now is the gift of remembrance.

As One Case Closes, Another Remains Open: Search for Joshua Davis Jr. Continues by New Braunfels Police

One local mystery was solved last week with the discovery of Shannon Smith’s burnt orange pickup truck, and the murder suspect’s body, less than 2 miles from the scene of the crime. But there’s another local mystery that New Braunfels Police still want solved: The case of missing New Braunfels toddler Joshua Davis Jr., who went missing over 7 months ago, on a cold February night.

.... As for Joshua Davis, Jr., the then 18-month old toddler (now 2-years old) went missing outside of his home on Savannah Hill Circle, off Klein Road and Walnut Avenue. Multiple searches for the boy took place in extremely cold temperatures back in February, when the daylight hours were much shorter. But those conditions, of course, have changed....

Officials still seeking information on whereabouts of Josh Davis Jr.

Baby Joshua Davis Jr. is still missing, and authorities said three things are true.

Police are still investigating his disappearance, someone knows what happened to him, and a local agency is offering money for that information.

Missing toddler's parents plea for information

Nearly a year after a New Braunfels toddler disappeared from his home, his parents still have no information about where the boy could be.

Joshua Davis, Jr. was last seen February 4th of 2011. Police searched several miles around his home but found no sign of him. His father, Josh Davis, said police are "starting fresh" with the case.

"It's kind of hard, because I wonder why it's been so long. I wonder why start over now? Why couldn't they have started over eight months ago? Why couldn't they have started over two months ago?" he asked.

Davis said he's not giving up hope that his son will be found and returned safely to the family. The toddler was 18-months-old when he vanished from his home and has missed holidays with his family and the birth of his baby brother.

"I don't see how anyone could take someone's child or withhold information about the disappearance of someone's child. I feel like if you have information and you're not coming forward, you're just as guilty, whether you played a part in it or not," Davis said.

There is a $20,000 reward for information leading to Joshua's whereabouts. Call New Braunfels Police or Comal County Crime Stoppers at (830) 620-TIPS with any tips.

Misleading statements delaying missing toddler investigation

New Braunfels Police Capt. John McDonald says investigators have received misleading statements from the parents of a missing toddler and "many" of the people inside the home when the child went missing last year. 18-month-old Joshua Davis Jr. was reported missing Feb. 4, 2011.

"I think if your child is missing, you have no reason but to tell the truth on what you know and provide the information that would assist the investigators, rather than send them in different directions that would mislead them," Capt. McDonald said.

Investigators have kept a tight lid on the case over the past year but are releasing new details now in the hopes that someone will come forward with additional information.

"Right now, we think there was probably an accident inside the house and that the persons have not come forward to explain the accident," Capt. McDonald said. "We have confirmed with the family that the child was not kidnapped. We were able to confirm that nobody kicked in the door and took the child. We were able to confirm the child did not get out of the house."

Capt. McDonald said police have worked countless hours trying to find Joshua. He was reported missing at about 8:30 p.m. Feb. 4 and investigators searched a two mile area around his home and found no sign of him.

"We have a 15 minute window where a small child has disappeared and is unaccounted for. The statements received from people close to the investigation inside the house were inconsistent with the things discovered now by investigators," he said.

Police said the misleading statements they have received are delaying the investigation, but tips are still coming in.

"Some of those have lead us to rivers or lakes. Some of those have lead to ponds on properties to include wells, private properties, and stuff like that. But none of those have panned out."

Capt. McDonald said police have conducted between ten to fifteen searches and most recently, divers searched the Guadalupe River along Lake Dunlap. He said seven people were at the home when Joshua went missing and police are now re-interviewing witnesses, including Joshua's parents.

"They may have knowledge of the circumstances regarding what happened. That's what we're trying to get to in a lot of these re-interviews that are occurring," Capt. McDonald said.

Joshua's parents, Sabrina Benitez and Joshua Davis Sr., declined an interview Thursday evening. However, the two said they have never told investigators misleading statements about Joshua's disappearance and said they are still working with detectives. They have said in previous interviews they don't know what happened to their son or where Joshua is.

Police say they are confident they can solve the case.

STATESMAN

1 February 2012

A year later, New Braunfels police say search for missing toddler, truth continues

Seven adults were present around the time Joshua Davis Jr. went missing from his New Braunfels home last year. A New Braunfels police official said Wednesday that detectives now believe that some of them haven't told the truth about what happened that night.

The 18-month-old vanished the night of Feb. 4. Texas Rangers, FBI and hundreds of volunteers scoured adjacent fields and pockets of dense thickets near the subdivision where Joshua lived. It had snowed that morning and there were fears that Joshua, who has asthma, was lost in the dark. Neighbors' homes were searched.

But no body was found.

"There were seven adults in the house that night, and several of them have been less than truthful with investigators," New Braunfels police Capt. John McDonald said.

McDonald would not say how many and which family members police suspect didn't tell the truth and would not say why detectives believe so.

He said that the department isn't ready to solve the case but that new information, which he did not disclose, suggests that Joshua may be dead .

Sabrina Benitez, Joshua's mother, said Wednesday that she doesn't believe it.

"I'm still believing and keeping faith that my little boy will be home," she said.

Benitez said she and Joshua's father, Joshua Davis, have cooperated fully with police since their son went missing. She said officers haven't told them that they believe someone in the family was misleading them — she's only heard it in news reports. Benitez said she thinks the police are trying to wrap up the case but that there's no evidence to do so.

"They have too much heat underneath them, so they're going to come to this stupid little theory \u2026 that my son's dead," Benitez said. "I can't tell them something I don't know, and that's what they want me to do."

She said she doesn't know what happened, but she and Davis suspect a man at the house that night knows more than he's revealed.

They haven't spoken to the man, who was a family friend, since last year, she said.

Neighbors have also speculated that there's more to the story than has been disclosed.

Gracie Muñoz, a kindergarten teacher who lives with her family next-door to the house from which Joshua disappeared, told the American-Statesman in August that she doesn't think Joshua wandered off because of his calm demeanor.

"I really think someone took him," Muñoz said. "I think he was taken by someone he knew."

Benitez and Davis are living at her mother's house with their younger son, Jeidan. He'll turn one later this month. Jeidan was born shortly after Joshua went missing.

For months, the couple has put Joshua's face on a billboard on Interstate 35, Benitez said, alerting drivers to his disappearance and asking for help. She said they also put up posters that say "missing" and ask people to call the police with any information.

"We're still going to church. We're still praying. We're still believing," Benitez said. "You can only do so much though."

5 February 2012

A year later, no sign of Joshua

A year after Joshua Davis Jr. vanished from his family's rural home, investigators say inconsistent and misleading statements by some of those present the night he disappeared are impeding efforts to determine the fate of the missing boy.

“There were seven people in the house, and some of them have been truthful and some have not,” said Capt. John McDonald of the New Braunfels police, who are being assisted by the FBI and Texas Rangers.

The boy's parents, Sabrina Benitez and Josh Davis Sr., say they've revealed all they know and are clinging to hope their son will surface alive.

“It's been a whole year of not waking up from a nightmare,” said Benitez, 22. “Not knowing where he's at, if he's alive, if he's being fed.”

No sign of the boy was found during a days-long search by dogs, drones and hundreds of volunteers around the southern New Braunfels residence, leaving police doubtful that the 18-month-old merely wandered off on Feb. 4, 2011.

“They searched my house three times,” said a neighbor who helped look for Josh. “We're paying more attention now to what goes on in our neighborhood, who's coming and going.”

Investigators theorize that Joshua was somehow injured that night and then removed from the house, McDonald said.

“Although we would love to find baby Josh alive, the investigation is pointing us toward a different theory, that the child most likely is deceased,” he said.

No one is being called a suspect or person of interest, he said, despite inconsistencies in the accounts of those at the mobile home that night.

Frustrated by what they see as a misplaced focus on them, the boy's family contends the key to the case lies with a visiting friend who left the home just before Josh was discovered missing, and who has cut off all communication except for relaying his condolences the next day.

“They keep insisting we know more than we've told them,” said Josh Davis, 24, who denies knowing about any injury to Joshua or his whereabouts. “I can't share information I don't have.”

He confirmed that police told him and his father, Jerome Davis, that elevated heart rates on their polygraph tests just after the boy vanished raised suspicions of duplicity.

“How would you feel if your child was missing for days?” asked Josh Davis, who offered to be retested. “I'll do anything and everything to get my child back.”

Jerome Davis, 58, is angered by police suspicions that he's concealing something about that fateful night at his home a year ago, which he denies.

McDonald said the friend that Josh Davis suspects holds the key to the case has “hired an attorney and done several interviews. The cooperation is there to a certain extent.”

Private investigator Charlie Parker, who briefly worked on the case for the family, subscribes to the theory that the boy was accidentally fatally injured — possibly run over by a car.

“Rather than call the police, I think they buried the body and I think the family knows where it is,” said Parker, who reported finding no blood or other evidence on vehicles he checked.

Calling the case his department's top priority, McDonald urged anyone with information about it to call 830-620-TIPS.

“I would rather someone call in a tip that we've heard 20 times than them not call in at all thinking we've already heard it,” he said.
