Details of Disappearance

Williams was last seen in Tazewell, Tennessee on April 25, 2017. He was planning to do a plumbing job the next day with a man named Ben, whom he'd met online six months earlier. He had worked for Ben before, and was planning to go to Crossville, Tennessee for the job at 7:00 a.m. on April 26. He has never been heard from again. On May 2, his wife reported him missing.

Many of Williams's relatives, including his mother and two children, live in Connecticut. His daughter stated it's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning or not contact his family. His case remains unsolved.
