Search for snowmobiler in second day - KWWL - Eastern Iowa Breaking News, Weather, Closings

Search for snowmobiler continues

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- The search for a missing snowmobiler continues, and the push is on to beat the approaching snowstorm.

Martin Davis, 52 of Cedar Rapids, left Sunday morning to go for a ride on his snowmobile.  He hasn't been seen since.

His girlfriend went to his house on Sunday evening and found the doors unlocked and the lights and television on.  She thought he had returned from his trip and ran a quick errand.

But, when Davis didn't show up to work at Clipper Windpower on Monday, his family, friends and co-workers became concerned.

They spent Monday and Tuesday searching on foot and on snowmobile, but there has been no sign of Davis.

Davis' children, who were all out of town on Tuesday, have all come back to eastern Iowa and are helping in the search for their father.

They are focusing on a 20-mile radius of Davis' house and are hoping to find him before another winter storm hits Iowa.

Some of Davis' colleagues from Clipper Windpower have also joined the search.

Anyone who can help search is asked to meet at 9600 Club Road in Cedar Rapids.

The family is asking everyone in the area to check their property and buildings for any sign of Martin Davis.

Davis is a 52-year- old white male.  He is 5'6", 240 pounds.  He was riding a yellow Ski-Doo snowmobile and was wearing a black snowmobile suit and helmet.

A helicopter has been brought in to help with the search. If you'd like to make a donation to help with the search efforts, a fund is set up at any Collins Community Credit Union. It's under the name Martin Davis.
