“She talked to us every day, every morning. So I know something has happened,” Famasa said.

Davis was last seen July 27 at a community garden in Tacoma’s Proctor district tending the vegetables she was growing in her plot. Two days later her car was found fully engulfed in flames an alley in downtown Tacoma.

Friends told KIRO 7 she is not the kind of person who would leave without letting someone know.

“She’s a free spirit, she doesn’t play by other people’s rules,” said Sonja McCoy. “She lives life to the fullest, she’s very helpful, she’ll give you her last.”

“She’s very personable,” added Monica Joseph. “She talks to everybody, she’s very likable, lovable.”

Friends of Davis are worried that she could be the victim of a crime.

“For us not to hear anything from her, we feel like something is definitely wrong,” Joseph said. This has been a nightmare that won’t end,” said McCoy. “This is like a LifeTime, this cannot be real this has to be made up.”

Davis is 50 years old, 5′5″ tall, 105 lbs. with black hair and brown eyes. Police are also looking for anyone who may have seen Davis’ car at the garden or near the 1600 block of Court E in downtown Tacoma between three and eleven pm on Monday.

Friends and family hope someone will come forward with information that will help Tacoma police track her down.

“If this was your family member, your friend, your brother, your mom, you would want someone to call it in,” McCoy said.

“Her family, all of us are missing her terribly,” said Famasa. “We just want to get to the bottom of where she is, what has happened.”

Tacoma police are asking anyone with information to contact them or Crime Stoppers of Tacoma and Pierce County at 1-800-222-TIPS.
