District Attorney Anita Howard told WGXA News that her office is concerned about the safety of Williams and the community.
“Mr. Williams has displayed dangerous behavior in the past, and we believe he and whomever he may be with – voluntarily or against his will - are a risk to the community. We are trying to determine if this incident is a kidnapping or if Mr. Williams is on the run. Either way, we need to get Mr. Williams back in custody for his own safety and the safety of the community,” Howard said.
His monitoring company reported that he was in violation of his ankle monitor and house arrest, according to court documents.
Williams was last seen wearing all dark clothing and the red ball cap shown in the video. He is described as 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds.
Anyone with information on Williams or his whereabouts are urged to call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500 or call Macon Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
