SILOAM SPRINGS (KFSM) -- The sister of a missing Siloam Springs woman who has not been seen since Saturday (Nov. 12) along with her baby daughter pleaded for information Thursday (Nov. 17) during a police media conference.
Siloam Springs police said Carol Elaine Davidson's, 35, family has not heard from her since Friday, but there were reports of her last being seen between noon and 3 p.m. Saturday at the Green Tree RV Park in Siloam Springs. Eighteen-month-old Rosemary Davidson is also missing.
"More than anything, we want to bring baby Rosemary and Carol home safe," Davidson's sister Terri Russo said. "Rosemary and Carol are incredibly loved and we miss them. If there is anything you know about Rosemary or Carol please call the Siloam Springs Police Department."
Authorities have been searching for the pair since Monday. This week they brought in a helicopter and K-9 units to aid in the search. So far, crews have been focusing their search on the Ozark National Forest in the area of Lookout Tower Road. Police said a hunter found Davidson's 1999 Dodge Caravan on the side of that road Tuesday, but Davidson and her baby were nowhere to be found.
Police said they are concerned the child does not have enough supplies, since most of the baby's things were found in the van. Investigators also said baby Rosemary was running a fever Saturday, the last day Davidson was seen.
Authorities have searched the van. They have also searched an fifth wheel RV Davidson and Rosemary had been staying in at National Falls State Park in Oklahoma for a week and a half before Veterans Day.
"Carol, if you see this, if you can hear this, please call us," Russo said. "Rest assured we will not stop until we find you. We don't give up on you or Rosemary."
Russo said she spoke with her sister everyday, so this kind of behavior is very unusual for Davidson.
Police have also asked residents and businesses with surveillance cameras along Highway 412 and Lookout Tower Road to review their footage for any clues. They have also asked hunters to check their game cameras.
Rosemary Davidson, who may also go by the name Rosemary Reed, is described as 2'6" with blonde hair and hazel eyes, and she weighs about 40 pounds, according to a release. Carol is 5'8"and weighs about 130 pounds, and she has blonde hair and brown eyes. She also has a very distinct tattoo pictured in this story.
Anyone with any information, or anyone who might have seen the van or trailer, can call Capt. Bryan Austin at (479) 524-4118 ext. 2220 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Siloam Springs police is being assisted by the FBI, Arkansas State Police, U.S. Marshals Service, Benton County Sheriff's Office, Washington County Sheriff's Office and both the Benton and Washington County Departments of Emergency Management.
Officials are also asking people who come across search crews to avoid the area if possible.
