Police: Missing Holly Hill man may be delusional, armed



HOLLY HILL, Fla. - Holly Hill police are looking for a missing 62-year-old man.

Police said David Eugene Davis has been missing since Tuesday.

According to police, Davis suffers from mental illness and may be delusional. He may also have a handgun with ammunition that he bought at a gun show in DeLand right before he disappeared, police said.

"This beloved man you are looking at right here, is the chosen one," Davis said in a video.

In YouTube videos Davis talks about his "true identity" – God.

"David is God, right now. Not the big guy in heaven. David is God, I walk the earth," Davis said.

Police said Davis sometimes walks to the Walmart in Ormond Beach and is also known to travel to Port Orange.

Derrick Brown recently rented out a room in his house to Davis and said he was a good tenant who paid his rent early.

He and his wife saw a doctor's note that diagnosed Davis as schizophrenic, and found an empty gun and ammunition case.

"Before we found out he had a gun, we went online and found out he was looking for a gun. So right away, I changed the locks," Brown said.

Police said there are no threats in his videos, but he does talk about his disdain for child molesters and a 'big event.'

"We are in the last days. One event will end life on earth as you know it," Davis said in a video.

Last Sunday, a man was found shot to death in a laundry room in South Daytona, but police don't believe Davis is connected to the killing.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Davis please contact the Holly Hill Police Department at (386) 248-9475.
