Details of Disappearance

Williams was last seen at Stoneybrook Apartments off Webster Road near Randleman Road in Greensboro, North Carolina at 8:30 p.m. on January 7, 2016. She walked away from the apartment complex with some friends. Her phone's GPS indicate she arrived at a friend's apartment in the same complex and was on her way home when she disappeared.

She said she would be back in an hour, but she never returned and has never been heard from again.

Investigators believe Williams is missing under suspicious circumstances and may have been the victim of foul play. She had planned to start classes at Guilford Technical Community College; the term began a week after her disappearance. She had planned to go shopping with her mother for textbooks and a laptop computer, but disappeared the day before the shopping trip.

It's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning or be out of touch with her family and friends. Her case remains unsolved.
