Details of Disappearance

Williams was last seen in Indianapolis, Indiana on November 8, 2021. That day she left her mother's home in the 4800 block of North Kenmore Road and got into a gray or white pickup truck with a loud engine. She was last seen at a home in the 3400 block of North Leland Avenue.

That evening she left that residence and has never been heard from again. Her cellular phone last pinged along Kentucky Avenue shortly after her disappearance.

A man named Destyn or Bestin Hoyle may have been the last person to see Williams prior to her disappearance. Authorities stated they were seeking Hoyle for questioning in her case; they didn't classify him as a suspect but said he might have information. A photo of Hoyle is posted with this case summary.

One of Williams’s cousins stated Williams used opioid drugs and she believes her disappearance could be drug-related. Authorities have not confirmed this.

Authorities believe Williams may have traveled to Flint, Michigan after her disappearance. Although police stated foul play is not suspected in her case, her disappearance is considered unusual; she always kept in touch with family and let them know her whereabouts. Her case remains unsolved.
