The Cass County Sheriff’s Office held a press conference Monday afternoon to discuss the latest information regarding the Missing Person Alert that was given on Friday, October 11.
Jamie Davis, the father of the three missing Harrisonville children, reported the children missing on Friday when he came home and they were not there. Davis has full custody of his children and the mother is suspected of taking the children that afternoon.
The biological mother/non-custodial parent has been identified as Sherri Lynn Davis or Sherri Lynn O’Neil, 44 years old, with no known current address.
Major Jeff Weber spoke to the media on Monday, expressing the unique difficulties of this case. He said that the mother has several different last names on file and he is unsure which one is correct.
“The mother has not been in the picture for over three years,” Weber said.
It is unclear as to why the mother has no custody of the children or if the mother may have been seeing the children as part of her visitation. The divorce took place in Jackson County courts. Since the incident occurred on a Friday and Monday is a government holiday, it has been difficult for court documents to be obtained and assessed.
The mother is believed to be driving a black Mercedes-Benz SUV with Arizona license plates or her white RV with Alaska license plates. Weber stated that she is known to keep five German Shepherd dogs with her and hopes that these distinctions will help identify her wherever she may be.
Davis has indicated that the mother poses no danger to the children.
On Friday, October 11, Harrisonville schools let out early and Jamie Davis had lunch with the children at his home. When he returned around four o’clock, the children were gone. He inquired of neighbors and friends but no one had heard from them. It was eventually learned that a vehicle matching the description of the mother’s Mercedes SUV was seen at the house that afternoon.
Because of all of the criteria necessary and the lack of information that has been able to be obtained thus far, an Amber Alert cannot be issued.
Any person with information on the children’s whereabouts is asked to call the Cass County Sheriff’s Office at 816-380-5200.
