Michael hughes3 suzanne davis

"Suzanne Davis," Michael's Mother


Details: Six-year-old Michael Hughes attended school in the Oklahoma City suburb of Choctaw, Okahoma. In September 1994, a man named Franklin Delano Floyd snatched Michael after claiming to be his father. The man was armed at the time and took both Michael and school principal James Davis with him, later deserting Davis handcuffed to a tree in a wooded area. Five hours later, Davis was rescued, but for two months, no sign of Franklin or Michael ever turned up until Franklin Delano Floyd was finally arrested in Louisville, Kentucky. He recieved a fifty-two year sentence for abduction and a life sentence in Florida for an unrelated homicide. As police delved into the case, they learned that he was Michael's grandfather, having posed as a married couple with his seventeen-year-old daughter, Suzanne Davis, for several years. Sharon had died in 1990 in a hit-and-run accident, and Michael was placed in foster family. Floyd had tried getting custody of him and had abducted the boy after being denied custody. Furthermore, Sharon was not his daughter either, most likely abducted by him as well. Today, no one knows where Michael is, nor do they know what his mother's true identity is. Franklin claims to have drowned him in a motel in Georgia and buried him in a cemetery. Other sources claim that the boy is alive, but Franklin keeps changing his story, completely unable to tell the truth.
