Tumeka Williams, 47, of Theodore, Alabama, was reported missing by her family on Monday, February 20. Williams was last seen at a Stuckey’s convenience store on Hwy 49 at 7 p.m. in Hattiesburg. At that time, surveillance footage shows her wearing an orange shirt, light brown jacket, and khaki pants. Williams had traveled to Jackson, Mississippi, to purchase a car, according to the Hattiesburg Police Department (HPD). Her family says that she had decided not to purchase the vehicle and was returning home when she disappeared.

HPD was contacted after Alabama Highway Patrol found William’s gray 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe with license plate 5246BA2 had been involved in an accident. Alabama Law Enforcement then contacted HPD officers in an effort to locate Williams and notify them that she and her vehicle were reported missing by her family. It is unclear whether Williams herself was involved in the accident or where she is currently located.

Prior to her disappearance, Williams placed a call from the Stuckeys in Hattiesburg to let her family know she was stopped for fuel and that she was about to get back on the road to come home. It was the last communication they received from her and she never returned home, according to police and her family. Currently, no more details have been made available about the case, but the family and law enforcement are currently seeking help from the public to locate Williams.

The Hattiesburg Police Department is requesting that anyone with any information about the whereabouts of Tumeka Williams or details that might lead to her location contact them at (601) 544-7900.
