Renton police are asking for the public’s help in locating Marcel Davis, Jr., a 20-year-old developmentally disabled man who was last seen nearly a week ago.
Davis has the mental capacity of a 14-year-old and has had little contact with anyone outside of the group home in Spokane where he has lived for the past six years, according to police. He has relatives in the Seattle area, and left the 2100 block of Southwest Sunset Boulevard in Renton last Wednesday with his backpack and a change of clothes.
Davis does not have a cell phone, cash, or other means of obtaining food and shelter, police said. Police say he also does not know how to navigate the world without assistance.
