    There is another thread here for Evelyn, with only one post on it. That post does have a bit more detail.

    From the other post:

    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Age: 17 years old
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, brown eyes.

    Details of Disappearance

    Davis was last seen during the afternoon of June 21, 1979 in her hometown of East Liverpool, Ohio. Several family members told authorities that they saw Davis with Robert Wooten, a friend of hers at the time. A photo of Wooten is posted below this case summary. Davis never returned home that day and has not been seen again.

    Davis's father spoke to Wooten the following day, June 22, and asked where Davis was located. According to Davis's father, Wooten's reply insinuated that he knew more about Davis's disappearance than he was admitting. Davis's family contacted authorities, who initiated an investigation into Davis's whereabouts. Wooten claimed that he did not know Davis's whereabouts. He stated that she planned to run away from her home on June 21 and he offered his assistance. Wooten claimed that he last saw Davis entering a truck driven by a man named Frank Grimm on the day she vanished. Investigators were unable to identify such a person and reportedly could not locate any other individuals in the area who were familiar with Grimm. Davis left her personal belongings at her family's residence and did not take additional cash with her the day she disappeared.

    Investigators spoke to Debbie Taylor, an East Liverpool resident who was friends with Davis, two days after Davis vanished. Taylor initially claimed that the police were mistaken and she did not know Davis, but changed her story and admitted they were friends. Taylor stated that she did not know Davis's whereabouts. Taylor was murdered along with two of her three children on June 25, two days after she spoke to authorities. Wooten confessed to the slayings and was sentenced to life in an Ohio prison. He continues to maintain his innocence in Davis's case.

    Investigators have classified Davis's case as that of an Endangered Runaway, but the cicumstances involved may point to foul play.

    Rachel Davis and her sister Evelyn “Louise” Davis grew up together in East Liverpool, Ohio. The two were incredibly close, according to Rachel, and Louise loved to treat Rachel with gifts like stuffed animals.

    “She mothered me a lot. And she was protective,” Rachel told Dateline of her 17-year-old sister. “She was very outgoing. She liked to horseback ride, she loved animals -- she was just a very sweet person. And she loved her family and friends so much.”

    “I just want to give her a decent burial,” Barb told Dateline. “I loved her, and I still love her.”

    Evelyn “Louise” Davis would be 56 years old today. At the time of her disappearance, she was described as 5’2” tall with brown hair and a scar on her lower lip. If you know anything regarding Louise’s disappearance, please contact the Liverpool Township Police Department at (330) 385-5564

    So Wooten killed Davis friend who denied first knowing her, but Wooten claims innocence. Too much of a coincidence not to be involved

    I found out about this case on a youtube channel. Evelyn Louise Davis was last seen with a man that killed a mother and two kids and she knew the mother. How long was her disappearance treated like a voluntary thing? Did they know who the father of her child was?
