Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said late Tuesday that "we are still treating this as a missing persons investigation," but would not comment further.
Davis, 55, is sister to former Salisbury Mayor Barrie Parsons Tilghman.
Authorities said Davis was last seen wearing a yellow shirt with images of cats on the front, blue shorts and sandal-type shoes. She is described as a white female, 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 175 pounds. She has blue eyes and brown hair.
Her vehicle, a blue Honda hatchback, was found in the Fruitland area following her disappearance, police said.
Micah Stauffer, principal of Parkside High, said he shared the missing persons bulletin information with Parkside faculty and staff, and he spoke with each of Mrs. Davis' classes about it Tuesday.
Anyone with information is asked to call the WBI at 410-548-4898 or the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office at 410-548-4891.

A motion filed by the Worcester County State's Attorney's Office said analysis of DNA evidence was not available to prosecutors or the defense 30 days prior to the trial date, as is required.
"Based on the time requirements, they have 30 days with which to request their own expert to look at it," said State's Attorney Beau Oglesby. "This is the most serious and important of cases. We want to make sure it is complete, fair and thorough."
Judge Thomas C. Groton III granted the motion. He cited several reasons to push the trial date to June, noting that Oglesby has only been in office for five weeks.
Oglesby also told the judge that records detailing what documents and information were shared with the Public Defender's Office were "not up to standards."
Oglesby narrowly defeated longtime Worcester prosecutor Joel Todd in last fall's elections. Since taking office, he said he and his staff have done everything they can to share information with the Public Defender's Office in the case, as is required by law.
The defendant awaiting trial, Justin Michael Hadel, is charged with first-degree murder in the case.
Sheddy, a 27-year-old mother of two, went missing from her Pocomoke City-area residence in November 2007. She was considered a missing person for more than two years until police found Sheddy's remains buried in the backyard of a Snow Hill property a year ago.
Shortly after that, Hadel, whose court records show he lives in Texas, was charged with killing her and held in jail.
Hadel's trial was scheduled to take place in December, when former State's Attorney Joel Todd would have tried the case, but was moved to February when the Public Defender's Office said it needed more time to prepare.
Due to the serious nature of the case and the potential of a five-day trial, Groton said the most suitable dates for the trial would be June 13-17.

Justin Hadel is charged with the murder of 26-year-old Christine Marie Sheddy who had been reported missing in 2007. Maryland authorities say, at the time of Sheddy's death, Hadel was 17-years-old.
Authorities say Sheddy's skeletal remains were discovered in March near an Inn where she had been a guest, along with Hadel.
Maryland prosecutors say Sheddy died of blunt force trauma and tips from witnesses led them to the shallow grave where she had been buried.
Since his arrest, Hadel has been extradited to Maryland and has been in jail, without bond. Hadel's trial is scheduled to start on February 8, 2011.

FROM Sgt. C. Wendlandt, Wicomico County Sheriff: Unfortunately on 09-4-10 Alex Arroyo-Flores’ body was found in the Rehobeth DE K-Mart shopping center in his car. His death is still under the investigation of the Delaware State Police.
The family would like to thank all those who offered their help, prayers and thoughts.
Tears filled the eyes of family and friends of Alex Arroyo Flores. They joined police Friday afternoon to address the community.
Alex if you are watching please take a good look at your family and know that above all we love you we wish you the best and we would love to hear from you our life will never be the same until we see you or hear from you again," said Felipe Arroyo, his father.
With no evidence or even a location to search, the family is at their wits end and are asking the public to help them find Alex.
They say they can't cross private properties to search farms or local businesses.
With an extended holiday weekend upon us it would be great with extra time those individuals have off to spend 10 or 15 minutes searching their property," said Sheriff Mike Lewis of Wicomico County.
Police say they have used every resource possible, and now they are strongly encouraging land and homeowners to search their property thoroughly for any signs of Alex or his car.
The 21-year-old was last seen driving a 2007 Silver Toyota Corolla with Maryland tags 2-E-R-E-2-1.

The FBI used sonar equipment this week to search the bottom of the James River for Jonathan S. Dorey, a Virginia Commonwealth University exchange student who disappeared more than four months ago, university officials said yesterday.
FBI officials conducted the search Wednesday near Rocketts Landing, in the same area where authorities discovered some of Dorey's belongings March 24 on the river's north bank, VCU spokesman Mike Porter said.
"VCU police consulted with the FBI, which provided additional resources to do a more complete search of the river bottom in the same area that was searched in the past," Porter wrote in an e-mail yesterday.VCU police continue to use all available resources in the hope of providing closure to the Dorey family," Porter wrote.
FBI spokeswoman Dee Rybiski said the bureau has been assisting VCU police with the search for Dorey all along. She declined to say how else the FBI has helped, noting that VCU police are heading the search.
Authorities still say they have no evidence of foul play.
VCU police have said that a witness reported seeing a man matching Dorey's description swimming in the river on the afternoon that he disappeared. His bicycle still is missing.

Pocomoke resident Teresa Shockley needs help finding her missing daughter Kristen Shockley missing since April 6th.
This is a missing person case not unlike the Christine Sheddy case.
I have spoken to the mother and in her view of things she is not getting the cooperation and attention of the police agencies that a missing person case deserves so lets get her side of the story out in the ‘public eye’ and lets find this missing young lady.
Kirsten is a Worwic college student that would ride the transit bus everyday to get to Worwic. Kristen’s mother Teresa, would take Kristen to Wal*mart every Monday thru Thursday to catch the transit bus to Worwic, this was a daily routine that began in November of this year.
April 6th 2010 Kristen’s mother Teresa dropped Kristen off at the transit bus stop as usual and Kristen got on the bus to travel to Worwic just like any other day but on the day April 6th 2010 Kristen did not come home. We do not know if Kristen made it to the Worwic stop or got off the bus somewhere in-between Pocomoke and Worwic college but we do know Kristen did not go to class and did not come home, Kristen’s mother has not seen her daughter since that day, April 6th 2010.
When Kristen did not return home the mother (Teresa) tried to contact Kristen with no luck at that point Teresa contacted the Pocomoke Police, Kristen’s mother Teresa Shockely says she got the run-around and the police acted as though they felt that Kristen was just off having fun and has simply run away. When Kristen’s mother reported Kristen missing she was told that Kristen had to be missing for 24 hours before she would be considered a missing person. 24 hours pass and Kristen’s mother Teresa makes the official missing persons report, the Pocomoke city police still will not right up the missing persons report and tells Kristen’s mother that Kristen is “just off playing and partying” and brushed it off as not being serious. After Teresa presses the issue the Pocomoke city police finally file a missing persons report after Kristen had been missing for 3 days. According to Kristen’s mother Teresa she was not even referred to a detective, the report was taken by a patrol officer.
Kristen has a boyfriend that has been abusing her, he has beat Kristen a number of times to the point that Kristen had to visit the ER. Kristen’s mother says that charges were pressed but each time Kristen dropped the charges.
Near the date that Kristen went missing her boyfriend beat her again, sending Kristen to the ER for the 4th time, Kristen pressed charges, this time Kristen did not drop the charges and the boyfriend was arrested. Kristen’s boyfriend made bail after a few days in incarceration, 3 days later Kristen went missing.
Kristen’s mother received an anonymous phone call Thursday the 8th saying that they saw Kristen walking the streets in
At the police station Kristen told the Baltimoe police that she was going to go get a pack of cigarettes, there was a store almost in sight of the police station. The store and the police station are near the intersection of
Kristen’s mother Teresa and Kristen’s brother took off to
Teresa has the tracking feature on Kristen’s cell phone and it’s showing up in
If anyone knows the whereabouts of Kristen Shockely please contact the Pocomoke city police @ (410) 957-1600 or email me at this blog. We need to bring Kristen home.

A Delaware resident visiting friends that lived on the outskirts of Pocomoke city that vanished without a trace over two years ago.
All of a sudden the uproar has died as fast as it reared. Even with shouldering the attacks the PPE absorbed.
What's the hold-up on the DNA of the remains that were found on a local beach that authorities assumed to be of Christine?
A womans remains (bones) were found recently by hunters at a boat ramp near "Dover" on Port Mahon Road, this area is where Christine Sheddy lived. The remains (bones) have been there so long that even the race of the womans remains are undetectable and DNA samples had to be lab tested. The results are estimated to be returned in 90 days so why is it taking so long for DNA results of the skull found on Assateague Island.
Although I'm literally hated for exposing the raw truth of the matter and sticking-up for the PCVFD I still to this day continue to search diligently for answers in this case of the missing mother.
This case will not go away. The good people of Pocomoke still want answers. They volunteered their precious time and monies on more than one occasion only to be chastised by the great hope in the end.
Local LE has worked overtime again and again with no answers. The suspects have moved about endlessly causing turmoil and chaos for others in their path only to return to Pocomoke.
We were told by the new hope "they were being interrogated". We were told "they were cooperating" and that "leads" and "witness's" were "coming forward". What did we get? A long series of embellishments and plagiarism compiled into chapters of who shot John (BS) for one reason and one reason only.
This "new hope", granted, has a silver tongue and even fooled me for a short period. So I don't place blame on those that hate me for exposing the "new hope". I had my hopes up as well and was blinded for a minute, but not much longer.
Where is the "new hope" now? What poor unsuspecting family is she chasing at present? What community is the "new hope" trying to segregate? Who is the "new hope" trying to sue? Which LE agency is being accused of a conspiracy? Yes the "new hope" still has a few of the lesser minded twisted around her little finger, but I bet that Christine's family has had second thoughts by now.
Through all the flack, attacks, and down right mean spirited nonsense we are still here and looking. We need no pat on the back. We need no recognition. We just want Christine found. Period! It's been too long.
Although we must face the facts that many have gone missing and have never been found, sad as it may be it's a reality.
Where is the hero that rode in on the white horse now?
We are still here!!

Odor on Nictitate
By Odor Eliminator
Chapter 6 - Three Card Monte
OE has been very quiet since the release of Chapter 5. Now I know that some of you thought that I had gone away for good. Sorry to disappoint you, I’m still here.
OE has let the groupies run roughshod over the blogs and chats. It was OE’s intention to sit back and see where things went. Wow, things have the appearance of animals in a zoo going berserk from being in their cages too long. Who or what rattled their cage?
We left off writing about what happened during the spree of fires on Byrd Road. For whatever reasons, it sent the groupies into an attacking frenzy. Providing the truth for readers from solid sources and eyewitness accounts along with a picture of an actual Byrd Road fire has the pesky little spiders spinning webs of deception.
Along came a spider called Nictitate spinning tales of greatness. From her nest hang pesky little groupies who spin their own tales
The reaction from the groupies after the release of Chapter 5 was to attack. Obviously, when OE wrote it, people who witnessed the terror spree had talked to OE. No big secret! What OE wonders is “why” attack people for telling the truth?
PPE had “anonymous” groupie bloggers who said that some peoples “hands” were all over an attack to trash Christine’s family. Nowhere has it ever been stated that anyone wants to or is attacking Christine’s family. If the truth hurts……..
On another blog a post was made by a self proclaimed fire fighter from Delaware who was suggesting that people were burning down their chicken houses because of no longer having a contract. What? An FYI for the blogging fire fighter – the neighbors tell OE that they did not stop raising chickens until July of 2008 and their chicken houses are still standing. Hello, the burning spree occurred from September – November 2007.
Tales of Clarence Jackson aka JR, have spilled forth from Nictitates nest. It was clear from a newspaper article that JR was arrested in Tennessee. The tales now say that he was charged with attempted murder. Other sources tell OE that JR has been recently spotted in Pocomoke. We all know that his love Tia has returned to Pocomoke and is back working at Walmart. Maybe we should invent a game – Where in the World Is JR? Carmen Sandiego doesn’t have anything on him!
A very strange posting appeared on a local blog from the Great One herself. One could say that it was the mindless babbling of someone who had a few too many and one would have to be in the same state of mind and on the same planet to understand it’s cryptic message. OE supposes it was another ploy at being “oh so mysterious”. If anything the free entertainment was worth the read.
A recent “conversation” on a chat roll repeats a story about Nik, a “good friend” of the Burke family, who befriended someone that told him a story about what happened to Christine. Old news folks. This same story was going around back in March. Sources tell OE that to further add to the plot of Nictitates tale the person whom this character Nik befriended has a relative who supposedly gave the same information to Lynn. As the tale goes, the relative then took back the story.
So many stories! We don’t need to worry though. If LE was given this information, as the tale goes, they were able to sort through it and throw out the BS.
The character Nik now has the Great One to thank for putting a big red X on his back. How stupid can anyone be? Is it any wonder that people do not want to talk to her? Someone gave the Nik story to the Great One and it can be deduced that is was one of two sources. This is another example of Nictitates tale being more important than information that does not need to be plastered all over the internet.
A recent Boss Hog post on PPE accused and blamed PE for derailing the involvement by 3 View Search Services in Christine’s case. This appeared to be more senseless babbling by someone who had a few too many. Thankfully it wasn’t an “oh so mysterious” post. No sir, he got right to the point.
The real story behind 3 View not coming to Pocomoke is that LE has not invited them to come. We have to remember that the Great One promised she could get 3 View to do a search. It’s clear that she didn’t and can’t deliver what she promises. Question is – why does Boss Hog have a need to cover this up by blaming PE?
Most entertaining of all is a conversation between the Great One and Christine. It starts out oh so sweet and then spews forth evil calling others haters and riff raff. The Great One claims to have “felt” Christine’s presence at the farm. A prayer to Saint Anthony follows and it’s expected by the Great One that Saint Anthony will “obtain” for her the whereabouts of Christine from the Lord. She even says “pretty please”. What? Sorry folks OE is speechless!
It’s like playing 3 Card Monte. Mix it up and distract people from focusing. Nictitates tale has become very boring and full of old news. The book sure won’t make the New York Times Best Seller list. Fame and fortune does not await Nictitate or the groupies.
November 13th has come and gone and now Christine Sheddy has been missing for over 2 years, her whereabouts unknown. Her family brought in the Great One who was going to solve the mystery of her disappearance in a flash. It’s obvious that the promises are empty and the Great One can’t deliver however the groupies cling to the nest.
Now that the divisionary, not the visionary, has played out her game how has it left everyone?
OE realizes that Chapter 6 is different than the rest of the chapters of Nictitates tale. I suppose that it’s influenced by Thanksgiving being upon us. When thinking about Christine’s disappearance and the evil horrid mess made by Nictitate and the groupies involvement, OE does not find anything from it to be thankful for.
