Willams Vanishes in January 2016
On January 7, 2016, Williams and her family had just finished taking down the Christmas tree. It was that same day when she vanished.
She and her mother were going to have a shopping date the next day, where they planned on buying Williams textbooks and a laptop.
Tyarra Williams is described as an African-American female, standing at 5’5″, and weighing 120 pounds. She has brown hair and eyes.
She was last known to be wearing a blue knit cap, pink shirt, black North Face jacket, and dark blue Levis.
Where Was Tyarra Williams Last Seen?
On the day of her disappearance, Williams was seen walking in the apartment parking lot with her brother and boyfriend in Greensboro, North Carolina.
After an initial investigation, it was discovered that Williams told her brother and boyfriend that she was going to visit a friend, who lived in the same complex, and that she would be back in an hour.
“She did see that friend and then headed back to the complex, but what happened after that we have no idea. She was on foot and had nothing with her, so where could she go?” Danielle Williams later said in an interview.
Tyarra Williams had a cell phone with her, and the GPS tracked her whereabouts. It showed that she made it to her friend’s place, but the device stopped working when she should have been on her way home.
Police think that the phone might have died, or someone deliberately switched it off.
Considering the sensitivity of the case, no further information was released. But authorities did mention that her phone’s mailbox was full, after all calls went directly to her voicemail.
