Ronnie O’Dell Davis went missing from Choctaw County on August 24,1977. He was 24 years old.

On the day he was last seen, Ronnie is said to have left his job with the Weyerhaeuser company and was heading to tend to his horses. The corral where he kept his horses was approximately three miles from where his home was.

There is a witness account that states the witness saw Ronnie at the corral, that they saw him jump into the back of his 1975 pickup while two other unknown men stood by. One of the men was smiling and holding a rifle. The witness also stated there was a blue and white Buick with Texas plates parked nearby. Neither Ronnie nor his 1975 Ford pickup have ever been found.

After Ronnie did not return home, his father and uncle went out to the corral to check on things. They apparently found an area in the tall grass that looked as if one or two people had been sitting there for a long while. There were cigarette butts and gum wrappers all around the area. Ronnie’s brother has stated that he believes he knows who was likely involved with the disappearance of his brother, and that the family believes Ronnie was mistakenly thought to have been involved with the drug trade by whomever he met with that day.

As recently as 2019 the OSBi appealed for information in the case, offering a $5,000 reward. To our knowledge nothing came from their appeals.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Ronnie O’Dell Davis please contact the OSBI at 800-522-8017.
