Bodies Found Where Mother, Daughter Went Missing


SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. — An Arkansas community is anxiously awaiting the autopsy results of two bodies discovered in Benton County over the weekend.

The two bodies were located in the woods near Siloam Springs, in the same area where a mother and her 18-month old daughter went missing three months ago. At this point, investigators aren’t connecting the two incidents.

Carol and Rosemarry Davidson were last seen at an RV park on November 12.

Three days into the search effort, Carol’s van was discovered near the area where the two went missing but the following weeks turned up nothing.

“There is so little information that if we have anything, anything at all, could be very important to us,” said Siloam Springs Police Chief, Jim Wilmeth last December.

The search continued, police check points were set up to try and gain new leads and a candle light vigil was held to try and bring awareness to the Davidson’s disappearance.

“Rosemary and Carol are incredibly loved and we miss them,” said Carol’s sister, Terri Russo during a press conference last year.

Russo told community members her sister wouldn’t have left without telling anyone in advance.
“Carol if you can see this, if you hear this, please call us,” Russo said. “But rest assured, we will not stop until we find you. We won’t give up on you or Rosemary.”

Then, this past weekend, two bodies were discovered – one on Saturday and one on Sunday.

The Benton County Sheriff’s Department isn’t releasing the gender or the size of the bodies that were recovered.
“At this point we are not giving any information or have any information to share,” says Sergeant Shannon Jenkins with the Benton County Sheriff’s Department.

“This is the area of Carol Davidson’s (disappearance) and that is bringing a lot of attention to this body that has been found, but at this point there is no identity,” she says.

The autopsies are expected to be compete Tuesday.
