Florence Police Department is currently assisting the Dallas, Ore., Police Department with an investigation into the disappearance of 37-year-old Heather Mounce Davison on Aug. 12.
Davison has been missing since midday on Saturday and is believed to have traveled to Florence earlier that day, on her own, before she disappeared.
Dallas Police reported that Davison had been seen at her home in Dallas on Saturday morning.
Davison’s car was located Saturday afternoon, just north of Florence at milepost 180 on Highway 101, by members of the Oregon State Police.
Davison’s cell phone was located about 400 feet from her empty automobile.
Family members filed a missing persons report with the Dallas Police Department on Saturday, prompting the agency to initiate and lead the investigation into Davison’s disappearance.
Florence Police Department Commander John Pitcher said the search for the missing woman is ongoing and generating some possible leads.
“Actually, we have been on the fringes of this investigation,” Pitcher said. “The Dallas Police Department took the original missing person call and the Oregon State Police were involved with the discovery and search of the vehicle, so we have been primarily assisting the lead agencies. We have received reports of possible sightings of the missing woman and we have followed up where possible, but so far we have been unable to confirm her whereabouts or to locate her.”
According to the Missing Persons Report, Davison is 5-foot-7 tall and weighs 170 pounds. However, Davison’s family described her as being approximately 5-foot-3 and weighing 140 pounds.
She has straight black hair and brown eyes.
Family members on the “Help Us Find Heather” Facebook page wrote on Tuesday that Davison has two tattoos: an infinity sign on her left wrist and pink and blue footprints on her right foot.
Numerous posts on social media share details of Davison’s life, referring positively to her two high school age children and her recent marriage to Denton Davison. They had returned from their honeymoon just one day before her disappearance.
Amie Poole, a relative of Davison, spoke with KMVT TV in Idaho, saying that Davison is a committed mother and her disappearance is completely unexpected.
“She’s my cousin. We grew up together, and she’s more like my sister. We know she wouldn’t have ever left her kids. As of right now, there are really no leads, there is nothing to go on,” Poole said. “We just need her home with her kids. They need her.”
Davison’s family and the police departments are hoping that members of the public come forward with information that will assist them in finding Davison.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Sgt. Josh Calef of the Dallas Police Department at 503-831-3516 or the Florence Police Department at 541-997-3515.
