Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Ronnie Davis was last seen at his corral, where he had gone to tend his horses. Two men who drove by the corral told the family they remembered seeing Ronnie jump into the back of his 1975 pickup as two other men stood by, one of them smiling and holding a rifle.
The two witnesses didn't stop, though. They said that as they drove on, they saw a blue and white Buick, with Texas tags, parked nearby.
Neither Ronnie nor his pickup was ever seen again.

Police did not become involved until three days later, and they found no clues. Ronnie didn't pack any clothes and most of his valued possessions were left in his room.

Family members say they think Ronnie was mistakenly linked to the theft of marijuana growing in the area and was killed because of it. Ronnie did not take drugs, or drink alcohol. Family members said they think someone may have stolen marijuana from a field and stored part of it in Ronnie's corral. They believe the owner discovered the marijuana in the corral and thought Ronnie was involved in the theft and had him silenced.

Ronnie Davisís pick up truck is still missing; it is a 1975 Ford XLT 3/4-ton pickup white over royal blue. Oklahoma License Plate number 440-699, serial number FALV 30056.
Foul play is suspected.

Ronnie, a part-time calf roper who competed in rodeo events, had a good-paying job at the nearby Weyerhaeuser company and had money in the bank.
