Update 2018--Gloria Davis of Lionhearted Mastiffs dissapperance

Update 2018--Gloria Davis of Lionhearted Mastiffs dissapperance

February 9th is a day that sets heavy in my heart. It's the date that eight years ago when myself and others  received the horrific email with the pictures of Gloria's dogs lying dead on the frozen snow covered ground. It also began the search for answers which lead to the eventual expanded search and investigation into Gloria as a missing person. Slowly over the following days as the facts became known, It became an investigation into a missing persons/homicide investigation for Gloria Davis.  I do this yearly update to keep Gloria's name and case out in the public for others to follow and be informed of the known facts in this case.

 Occasionally, I get inquires about Gloria's missing person/Homicide investigation.  Anderson County Sheriff's department in Anderson, SC still list Gloria's missing person case as an open homicide. I have been informed it will stay open until answers are found and known.  It remains their only unsolved case.  Somewhere, someone has the information needed to bring Gloria home. 

There was much confusion those first few weeks--lots of miscommunication and misinformation  was spread causing confusion in the investigation.   Time has calmed those troubled waters; what remains a glaring truth is that Gloria Davis remains missing and there has been no evidence of  her being alive since  December of 2009.  None of Gloria's friends or family have had any contact with her since December 2009. All of her personal belongings including her ID, SS card, driver's license, Checking account information, personal belongings, and her car were found in the house on the Anderson property. Anderson County Animal Control was notified, and there on the property her beloved Lionhearted dogs were found dead, starved and dying. Since her disappearance, there has been no activity on her SS card/number, banking account, credit cards, or any other personal information. Gloria Davis has basically fell off the face of the earth.  

In the past eight years, Gloria has had three wonderful grandsons born who will never get to know their grandmother.  Her sons, family, and friends still grieve and wait for answers.  Grief can have no closure until their questions are answered.  Time is said to heal all wounds; we pray for answers to heal our hearts.  I ask that any and all who read this update to please pray for peace and understanding for Gloria's sons and family; and guidance, strength, and insight for the officers in charge of her investigation. 

On a personal note;  I will never stop asking questions and looking for answers.  I still have difficulty looking back at the original post I made. Sometimes, I cry when asked about this case.  I grieve for the lost of my friend; I grieve that she will never know the love of her grandsons; I grieve that her family and friends do not have the closure needed.  The answers may not come in my lifetime, but I have hope and belief that all will be known one day. What I witnessed there on the Anderson property will always haunt me.  Both Gloria and her dogs deserve justice.

Gloria and JC winning Winner's Dog  from the BBE Class at Mastiff supported entry in Trenton, NJ May 2008.

  IF you feel you have information relating to the disappearance of Gloria Davis, please contact the investigating officer in Anderson, SC-- Detective Wayne Mills. Any piece of information may be the link so needed in this investigation.  This  Information is needed so that Gloria can be brought home to her family.  He can be reached at

It is my sincere hope that Gloria can be brought home to her  mother, sons  and grandsons.  Join me in praying that justice will be served.
