Police seek convicted kidnapper
Man on parole fled to avoid arrest; still at large, police say
Dalontay Davis

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Statesboro Police Department at (912) 764-9911.
    Anyone who spots Dalontay Davis is advised not to approach him but instead to notify police immediately.

    Statesboro police are still seeking a convicted kidnapper who fled from the parole office in downtown Statesboro Monday morning.
    Dalontay Davis, 35, of Eagle Trace Mobile Home Park, was at the Office of Pardons and Parole on East Main Street around 10:23 a.m. when he fled to avoid arrest, according to Statesboro police reports.
    Davis had been on parole since January after serving time for a kidnapping conviction. Calls made to the parole office for further information Monday were not immediately returned.
    Records from the state parole website show Davis was released in January after serving about 17 years of a 20-year sentence for a 1995 kidnapping charge in Tift County. His previous criminal record includes convictions for attempted armed robbery, armed robbery and aggravated assault.
    Police believe Davis fled on foot to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, between East Cherry and East Vine streets, where he possibly stole a silver 2000 Ford F150 from the store. The truck, which had the words “ReStore Habitat” on the side, was later recovered off Langston Chapel Road, found by a Bulloch County sheriff’s deputy, according to reports.
    Davis stands 6 feet 1 inch and weighs around 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white tee shirt and khaki pants.
    Holli Deal Bragg maybe reached at (912) 489-9414.
