Missing persons case expands to Jefferson County

Crimes and Courts

The scope is widening, in the case of the two missing people from Belmont County.

And it may involve foul play, and another county.

Joni Davis and Brian Goff have now been gone for nine and a half days.

Joni’s family continues to work with law enforcement.

The Belmont County Sheriff’s Department has taken the surveillance recording from a local gas station that seems to indicate the pair was last seen going north.

And the family now believes the investigation needs to move north also.

“It seems like, with the way the car was last headed north on seven, it seems like I said that we really need to start looking up in Jefferson County. All indications that they were last seen heading north right into Jefferson County,” said Joni’s sister, Jackie Davis. 

“We were requested by Belmont County to kind of check a couple areas so we’ve done that for them. It’s Belmont County’s investigation and whatever Jefferson County can do to help them, we will certainly do that.There’s nothing worse than now knowing what happened. So I’m just hoping they get some kind of closure,” said Major Susan Bell of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department. 

The family says they’ve discovered that although Brian Goff didn’t take any money with him, he did apparently have several credit cards.

They say Brian was a very habit-driven person, who would not have chosen to simply take a trip on a whim.

And both of them left their medications and all their possessions behind.
