    Exclusive: Father of Missing Toddler Refuses to Give Up Hope

    Three of Joshua Davis Sr.’s children have never met their older brother, but they still pray for him before every meal.

    The younger Joshua Davis disappeared from his New Braunfels home eight years ago.

    The investigation into what happened to the toddler, known to his family as Junior, is still officially open.

    "This is not a cold case. This is an open investigation. We continue to receive leads and tips and we continue to track those down,” said David Ferguson, New Braunfels Police Department spokesperson.

    Several people were at the home the night Joshua Davis Jr. disappeared.

    The New Braunfels Police Department believes someone who was there hasn’t told the entire truth.

    "We firmly believe that someone who was in the house that night has the key. They have the information that we need in order to put closure to this,” Ferguson said.

    But the missing child’s father doesn’t see it that way.

    "I don’t have any faith in NBPD,” Joshua Davis Sr. said.

    "It’s unfortunate that the family is frustrated with the police department. We feel like we have been running down every lead. We have collected an inordinate amount of evidence in this case,” Ferguson said.

    New Braunfels investigators want to find Joshua Davis Jr. alive, but believe he's most likely dead.

    His father says he won’t give up hope until the day his son is found.

    "A parent’s intuition, I don’t feel it in my heart. And some people are like ‘Oh, maybe you’re just not ready to accept that your son is [deceased].’ No, it’s not that. I don’t feel it,” Davis said.

    Joshua was last seen in the kitchen area of his family's mobile home in the 2600 block of Savannah Hills Circle in New Braunfels, Texas between 8:00 and 8:20 p.m. on February 4, 2011. He lived with his parents and his older brother, and his mother was eight months pregnant with a boy.

    His parents were hosting a party that night and there were nine people in the house, including Joshua. He disappeared sometime before 9:00 p.m. and has never been heard from again.

    Joshua is described as a very mobile toddler, and the front door to his home didn't latch properly. Authorities initially believed he had wandered away. They conducted an extensive search of the neighborhood, but they found no sign of him and tracker dogs couldn't pick up his scent. If he had been without shelter, he couldn't have survived long; the night he disappeared, temperatures dropped to 19 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Because they were unable to find Joshua in the local area, investigators began to look into other possible causes of his disappearance. His parents said they believed he had been abducted and suggested a family friend as a possible suspect.

    The friend had visited the mobile home on the night of February 4 and left shortly before Joshua was discovered missing. He reportedly gave conflicting stories about that night and refused to take a polygraph test.

    Authorities stated the evidence shows Joshua was possibly injured, and then removed from the home, before he was reported missing. They believe one or more of the adults in the house that night is lying or knows more than they have disclosed about the child's disappearance, but no one has been named as a suspect.

    911 call reporting New Braunfels baby missing released 8 years into investigation

    More than eight years after an 18-month-old boy disappeared, New Braunfels police have released the family's 911 call reporting him missing.

    The 911 call came to light after a podcast that takes a look at missing persons cases, The Vanished Podcast, obtained it from New Braunfels police and released it on its episode about Joshua Davis Jr. on May 12.

    “My grandson is missing. He's about 16-18 months. We can't find him anywhere," Jerome Davis can be heard telling police on the 911 recording.

    It was a cold February night when New Braunfels police answered the call from the Savannah Hill Circle home where baby Joshua Davis lived. Police said snow and ice covered the ground, but even the weather couldn't compare to the chilling news that baby Josh was gone.

    "We've been looking for him for about 20 minutes," Jerome said that night.

    "Okay, I'm going to send someone in that direction. Keep looking for him. If you find him, give us a ring back," the officer responded.
