Update: Dateline picks up case of missing Easton man

614now Staff



About a month and a half has gone by since 29-year-old husband and father Tyler Davis went missing from the Easton Town Center area.

Dateline NBC caught up with Tyler’s wife, Brittany, to recount the day her birthday turned into her worst nightmare.

For Brittany’s birthday on February 24, Tyler planned a getaway to Easton Town Center where they had a hotel and couple’s massage booked. This was going to be one of three yearly occasions (Brittany’s birthday, Tyler’s birthday, and their anniversary) the two dedicate to spending time alone

On February 23, Tyler and Brittany left their Wilmington, OH home to drop their son off at Tyler’s parents before heading to the Hilton hotel. Brittany told Dateline they checked in at about 5pm.

A close friend of the couple who was not identified by name in the article came by the Hilton to hang out. By around 8:30pm, the three ventured out of the hotel for dinner.

Following the meal, Brittany, Tyler, and their friend walked around Easton to get a lay of the land to inform their shopping excursion planned for the next day. Brittany told Dateline nothing out of the ordinary happened that evening.

Around 3am, the group was tired and called an Uber to take them back to the hotel. This is when the night took a turn.

Brittany told Dateline that when they were getting out of the vehicle, Tyler seemed “confused and frustrated.” He was going to go on a walk. Brittany offered to join her husband, but she needed to charge her phone. Instead, their friend went with Tyler.

And so, Brittany returned to the room to plug in her phone. After sufficient charge, Brittany went back outside, but couldn’t find Tyler or their friend. At around 3:30am, Tyler called her and said he’d be right back.


A few minutes later, their friend returned to the hotel alone. He reaffirmed Brittany that Tyler would be back soon. Brittany called Tyler multiple times but he didn’t answer.

The friend had seen Tyler on the walk, but Brittany was unsure why or when the two separated, reports Dateline.

About an hour after Tyler left for the walk, around 4:10am, he called Brittany. He said he was “walking through the woods” and that he could “see the hotel.” Brittany said he sounded “so confused,” and that since he wasn’t an outdoorsy person, “woods” to him could mean “two trees right beside each other.”

Seconds later, Tyler called again. When Brittany picked up, the line was open for about four seconds, then the phone hung up. She called back but his phone was off. It’s been off ever since.

At around 4:30am, their friend, who lives about 10 minutes from the hotel, decided to go home. Concerned Brittany began calling friends to ask for advice about what to do. Everyone assured her that there was nothing to be worried about and that Tyler would walk through the door at any moment.

But, as the sun began to rise, Tyler was still nowhere to be found.

Brittany then called an old roommate who lives in Columbus. He came to the hotel around 8am and the two of them drove around Easton together looking for Tyler. Brittany thought maybe he could have fallen asleep on a bench somewhere.

The search was fruitless.

She then called Tyler’s parents and then the Columbus Police Department around 10:30am.

Brittany, Tyler’s father, and authorities combed the area, but there was no trace of Tyler. Security footage is currently being reviewed.

Tyler Davis is described as being 5’10” tall and weighing 170 lbs. with brown hair, brown eyes, and a birthmark on his right arm. He was last seen wearing a blue and green flannel shirt with blue jeans and black and white Nike shoes.

If you have any information surrounding Tyler’s disappearance, please call the Columbus Police Department at 614-645-4545.

Please share!!

Popular Grandview shop vandalized over the weekend

Mike Thomas



Staff at popular Grandview shop The Butcher and Grocer were met with an upsetting scene upon arriving at work Sunday morning. The glass front door of the shop was shattered, and cash stolen from inside.

Thanks to the mess caused by the break-in—and having no cash drawer to run a register—Butcher & Baker was forced to close for business Sunday. In spite of the setback, management clearly have not lost a sense of humor:

Butcher & Baker have regrouped and are operating for their usual hours. Anyone with information about the break-in should contact Grandview police.
