Circumstances of Disappearance

Phillip was abducted by his stepfather, "Brandon Cleo Williams", who was actually Franklin Delano Floyd, a convicted felon who left Florida to escaped parole in 1973.

Franklin Delano Floyd ended up in North Carolina where he married a single mother of four. They eventually moved to Texas. In 1975, the mother was serving a 30 day jail sentence for a passing bad check. When she was released from jail, she found that two of her children were left in foster care and her two other children, Suzanne and Phillip, along with Floyd were missing. When she went to file a missing persons report she was told that since Floyd was their stepfather that it was well within his right to take the children.

Three months later, Franklin Floyd, then 32, turned up in Oklahoma City going by the name "Trenton B. Davis" with Suzanne. Phillip was not with them. Over the next decade, Suzanne and Floyd moved from town to town, using a variety of aliases. In 1988, Suzanne, then 17, gave birth to a son, Micheal Hughes. Floyd claimed to be the boy's father (a blood test later revealed he was not the biological father). He then married Suzanne, who he once claimed was his daughter. Then in 1990, when Michael was 2, Suzanne was killed in a mysterious hit and run accident. The prime suspect, though he was never charged, was Franklin Floyd.

No trace of Phillip has ever been found
