Details of Disappearance

Williams was living with a man in Sandy Springs, Georgia in early 1988. She told her mother she was afraid of the man and wanted to leave him. The couple sometimes visited her family in Ohio and stayed at the Rogers Hotel in Wheeling, West Virginia during the visits; she kept a room there.

In February 1988, the man Williams had been staying with called her family collect and said she'd left him and was en route to the Ohio Valley area. Her family reported her missing shortly thereafter. They never heard from her again.

Williams's family has not heard from her since early 1988. She had a troubled, high-risk lifestyle; she was a known drug user and sex worker, frequently hitchhiked and visited bars, and had an arrest record. However, her family says it is uncharacteristic of her to be out of touch with them for so long or to abandon her young daughter.

Since Williams disappeared, there hasn't been any activity on her Social Security number; both police and her family believe she was murdered. Both Ohio and Georgia authorities are investigating her case.
