Melinda Kay Davis was last seen on February 25, 2021 around 7:20AM near the Shelby High School in Shelby, Ohio. Melinda has tattoos on both arms, wrists, and shoulders. She was heading to John Henry Mack Jr.'s house (her ex- boyfriend) in Mansfield, Ohio to retrieve some of her personal belongings he still had. Nobody has seen or heard from her since.

She was driving her black Volkswagen Jetta with Ohio license plate number JGZ8921. The suspected kidnapper John Henry Mack Jr. has been found and arrested but Melinda is still missing.

Family and friends of Melinda have came together and have came up with $3,000 to initially offer as a reward for information leading directly to Melinda or her vehicle. 

We (Melinda's family and friends) are asking those that can, to help us build a larger reward to offer for information that leads us directly to Melinda or her car. Time is of the essence and we all know the saying "Money talks". We hope that by offering a larger reward someone will come forward so we can bring Melinda home to her family and especially her 4 young children that need her!

We encourage people to join the Facebook group dedicated to finding Melinda.  On this page you will find updated information and photos directly from the family. You can find this page by searching for "Melinda Kay Davis MISSING (updates from family)" or by typing in this link - facebook.com/groups/1693422724162957

Finding Melinda or her car is crucial to keeping her kidnapper behind bars. Otherwise he will be back on the streets.  EVERY penny helps! We all thank everyone for the overwhelming support from people near and far! Together we can work miracles! We and many others have been out looking for her and her car every day.

Anybody that is local to the area can go to Any Mechanics Bank and ask to donate to the "Benefit for Melinda Kay Davis" account. You must also mention the name Joseph Wurth or Lisa Davis (Melinda's sister) in order for them to bring up the account. 

We thank everyone for their help in any way and form!
