BALTIMORE — UPDATE: Saturday, a Silver Alert has been issued for 72-year-old Marthann Davis and her 4-year-old grandson Ashton Davis.

Original Story: A Baltimore family, and police, are looking are a missing grandmother and her 4-year-old grandson.

Police put out an alert Thursday night after 72-year-old Marthann Davis and Ashton Davis left a home on Ramblewood Road in a red Kia Soul.

Her husband came home and saw her phone, her purse and water still running, putting him and his family on high alert.

A neighbor’s camera footage showed Marthann Davis pulling away from her home with her grandson Thursday around 6 p.m.

Her family hasn't heard from her since they left.

“Her phone is on the dining room table, along with her purse and all of her ID, so apparently she left with nothing but her car keys," her husband Charles Davis said.

“I don’t know where they are. I don’t know what condition they’re in,” Charles Davis said. “I just need answers and I have none.”

Although he left for work around 2 p.m. Thursday, he said there is Ring camera footage that shows the two leaving the home.

"I don’t know where they are. I don’t know what condition they’re in,” Charles Davis said. “I just need answers and I have none.”

Police since learned Marthann Davis and her grandson made a stop at McDonalds.

“They just said around 6:30 yesterday she at McDonalds on Cold Spring and Reisterstown Road,” her son Jonathan Davis said. “She realized she didn’t have her wallet and somebody paid for her.”

Brittaney Spratley, Ashton’s mother, is hopeful that is a sign of no foul play but her worries are centered on her son and his safety.

“I'm worried because he's autistic. He takes medicine,” Spratley said. “He has multiple food allergies, epipens, asthma and I'm just worried about him.”

While police continue to search, Jonathan Davis’s eyes are fixed on the front door, hoping they will walk through it soon.

“I think she maybe just forgot where she was going, got lost you know. I just want them home,” Jonathan Davis said.
