MAXVILLE, Fla. – A 29-year-old man whose girlfriend disappeared about a month ago was in court Thursday on gun-related charges.

Courtney Lamar Davis was arrested March 26 and charged with possession of a firearm by an out-of-state felon. He pleaded not guilty Thursday, and his next court date was set for May 12.

Davis is the boyfriend of Brittany Foote, 22, who was last seen March 18. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spent a week earlier this month searching the Trail Ridge Landfill in Maxville for evidence in her disappearance.

Court records show Davis' gun charge stemmed from an incident on March 21.

Davis has a long list of past criminal charges, including armed robbery, assault, theft, carjacking, marijuana possession and attempted burglary. He was also found not guilty on charges of murder and attempted murder in 2003.

Police ask anyone with information about Foote's disappearance to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
