Elderly Greenville Couple Located

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal updated their online newsfeed saying the missing couple from Greenville has been located.  The story follows:

An elderly couple was found and were safe Friday afternoon following a multi-day search by multiple law enforcement agencies, including Lubbock police.

Foye and June Davis of Greenville were safe and back home Friday afternoon, according to a statement from Lubbock police.

Lubbock Police, in conjunction with Greenville Police, as well as the Texas Department of Public Safety, had been searching for the couple, who had arrived in Lubbock on July 23 and had last been seen the morning of July 26 about 7:30 a.m. before checking out of their hotel room in the 3200 block of South Loop 289.

“The couple was in town visiting a family member in the hospital,” said Whitley.

The concern stemmed from the fact that once arriving in Lubbock on June 23, they were found lost on the Texas Tech campus, she said.

“The individual who found the two helped them to check in to the Pioneer Hotel in downtown Lubbock,” said Whitley.

After checking into the hotel, Foye and June Davis were then given directions by a hotel employee to Covenant Medical Center to visit a family member.

After leaving the hospital about 4 p.m., the two then checked into Hotel Ava, located in the 3200 block of South Loop 289, leaving behind their property, as well as their medication at the Pioneer Hotel, said Whitley.

The Greenville Police Department confirmed that the couple has been located but did not immediately have additional details about how they were found. Randy Daw, Minister at Creekside Church of Christ, said, “they drove up mid-morning and had no idea anybody was looking for them”. He went on to say, “thank you for your prayers”.
