Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Laura Smith Williams, was last seen at her home in a Connelly Trailer Park located in Esopus, New York on July 25, 1994 by a neighbor. The neighbor stated Williams willingly got into a vehicle parked in front of her trailer around 10 a.m. with 2 unknown white males on the day of her disappearance.
Her residence gave no indication of force or foul play. Williams left behind three children and medication used to control her multiple sclerosis.
At the time of her disappearance, Williams was separated from her husband and the father of her two boys. She was reported missing by her live-in boyfriend and the father of her daughter.
Police believe foul play is likely due to Williams leaving behind her medication, the length of time she has been gone and because she has not turned up in credit card and driver's license databases.

In 2006 a suspect told authorities he was involved in the disappearance of Laura, and the disappearance of Cindy Rowles. He has not been charged in either case.
