On February 4, 2011, the Texas Hill Country was experiencing some abnormally cold weather. It had been snowing in New Braunfels, and the temperatures dipped below 20 degrees. 18-month-old Joshua Davis was staying warm in bed with his mom watching movies when she realized he had crawled off. She got up to search for Joshua but he was nowhere to be found. A search ensued, but no trace of Joshua has ever been found. Joshua’s family maintains that he must have gotten out of the house or been taken by someone, but who? The New Braunfels Police Department believes that the answers to this story lie with the people who were in the house that day.
If you have any information about Joshua’s disappearance, you can call the New Braunfels Police Department at 830-221-4100.
