"Mommy's in the rug"... Nightmare in Stark County
June 18, 2007 12:05 PM
From the Akron Beacon Journal:
While his grandmother speaks to yet another reporter, little Blake takes aim at his coloring book.
As he scribbles, the 2-year-old reminds everyone his mommy remains missing.
And at times, he has continued to repeat the startling words that his grandmother Patty Porter heard when she came looking for her daughter Friday morning.
``Mommy's in the rug,'' Blake says.
He was also saying "Mommy was crying,'' and "Mommy broke the table." The grandmother found the two-year old "soiled, thirsty and hungry." His mother, who was nine months pregnant, hasn't been seen since Wednesday. Things do not sound good:
Stark County sheriff's detectives have classified Davis as a missing person. But the signs inside her home are ominous. A large red and gold comforter and white sheet are missing from her bedroom, where parts of a gallon jug of bleach was poured over the floor. A back sliding glass patio door was unlocked, but there was no sign of a forced entry.
Sheriff's detectives are questioning the boy's father, who had an "on again off again" relationship with the mother. The father is a Canton police officer. The father's wife--who is not the mother of the two-year old or the unborn baby--has also been interviewed by the detectives.
