The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is offering a $5,000 reward for information that can help agents solve the 1977 disappearance of Ronnie Odell Davis.

Davis was last seen at his horse corral near Swink, Okla., on Aug. 24, 1977. Neither he nor his 1975 Ford XLT have been located since.

The Choctaw County District Attorney asked the OSBI to assist with the investigation on Aug. 30, 1977. Davis is believed to be the victim of foul play.

Over the course of the 42-year investigation, numerous interviews and investigative leads have been attempted by various agents in an effort to find the victim and determine who is responsible for his death. At this time, investigators are hopeful the passage of time and the potential of receiving a reward will be beneficial in generating new leads.

If you know anything about Davis’ disappearance or where his remains are located, please contact the OSBI at (800) 522-8017 or [email protected]
