The Mother Of A Missing Charlotte Man Is Desperate For Answers
CHARLOTTE, NC. — The mother of a missing Charlotte man is desperate for answers. 25-year-old Sam Davis has not been seen in more than a month. His mother fears he may be the latest victim of the opioid crisis.
Davis’s mother tells WCCB she learned about his heroin use, after he disappeared. A woman who knows all too well the devastating domino effect opioids can have, says Davis’s mother should hold on to hope.
“We need him to come home whether it’s good news or bad news. We just need to know where he is,” says Sam’s mother Carol Majia.
Davis went missing on June 29th. He hasn’t been seen since he left his home on Popular Grove Drive in northeast Charlotte. He was carrying a mini skateboard with green wheels. Carol says she did not know her son was using heroin.
“I do know that he reached out to his friends, just a matter of days before he disappeared asking them for advice and help. I know that he wanted to be clean.”
She says Sam broke his ankle a few years ago, and had surgery.
“He was obviously on strong pain killers, because of that so I don’t know if that led to it, I don’t know.”
Melissa Boyd knows exactly what Carol is going through. Her 28-year-old brother, Joey, died from a heroin overdose in 2009. She urges Carol not to give up hope.
“Until there’s some kind of closure, whether he’s okay or if he’s not. This mama needs that hope, there is hope. Until that time, there’s always hope,” says Boyd.
Davis is described as a white male, 5′ 11″ tall, 150lbs, with blue eyes and brown hair.
