Michael Austin Davis
Austin was last seen on June 26, 2007 in Jacksonville, Florida, as he left his sister's home on the west side of town after calling his boss to ask for time off to take care of some personal business. Family members say that Austin became depressed after he was arrested for several outstanding tickets, for which his car was also impounded. His last cell phone call was to a cab company, and the driver can only remember a 9-mile fare. Most of his personal possessions were left behind, and there has been no activity on his e-mail or bank accounts. Austin missed some family events that he was looking forward to.
It is now believed his cab ride may have taken him to Jax Jewelry and Pawn Shop at 103rd Street and Blanding Boulevard around 12:30pm on June 26th, where he purchased a shotgun, placed it in a duffel bag, and left the shop on foot.
"The pawn shop clerk said the gun barrel was protruding from the duffle bag when he left the shop. As busy as that area is midday, we think it is likely someone saw him and would remember something as unusual as a young man walking on Blanding or 103rd with a gun in a duffel bag”, said Austin’s sister. "We are hopeful someone will come forward, possibly with information regarding his direction of travel and help us target other areas to search."
Austin's family is very concerned for his welfare, and would appreciate any information that would lead to his whereabouts. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office or any of the contact points listed below.
