CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Police searched overnight in Cleveland for Clarence Davis, the man accused of abducting his girlfriend's kids on Tuesday, but the suspect did not turn up.

Officers from the Cleveland Police Department and the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office searched a bar in the 3600 block of Superior Avenue around 1:30 a.m., hoping that Davis would be there, but he was not found. 

Davis is wanted by police after he allegedly threatened his girlfriend with a gun on Tuesday morning in Willoughby Hills. He then kidnapped her two children, setting off a statewide AMBER Alert. The children were dropped off and later returned to their mother, but Davis remains at large and is considered armed and dangerous.

After a deeper look into his past, Davis claimed to be a former Army infantryman. He has also claimed to work as an armed guard for several local private companies, even though the private companies denied his employment.

He is described as 5 foot 10, approximately 260 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. Davis is believed to be driving a dark blue 2013 Hyundai Sonata with a rear license plate of GWS5908 and a front plate of BOB.

Anyone with information on his location should contact the police immediately.
