Although African Americans make up just 13 percent of the U.S. population, we account for 33 percent of the missing in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s database. Cases involving African Americans also tend to receive less media coverage than missing Whites, with missing men of color getting even less attention.

NewsOne has partnered with the Black and Missing Foundation and TV One to focus on the crisis of missing African Americans.

To be a part of the solution, NewsOne will profile a missing person weekly and provide tips about how to keep your loved ones safe and what to do if someone goes missing, while TV One‘s newest show, “Find Our Missing,” hosted by award-winning actress S. Epatha Merkerson, tells these stories in visual form.

Circumstances of Disappearance: Police were called to the scene of a shooting at the intersection of Koth and Baker streets on Jan. 8, 2011. Police did not find anyone at the scene but later received a call from Williams’ family saying that he had been shot in the leg and was missing. Police searched the nearby woods and a subdivision using a helicopter and infrared camera. The search later expanded to the entire county.

After investigating, police issued a warrant for the arrest of Emmanuel Bruckner who was charged with attempted murder for the shooting of Chris Chapman. Police believe Williams may have been the second victim of that shooting. Chapman turned himself in to authorities. However, Williams remains missing more than a year after the incident.

Williams may be in need of medical attention. Police are asking anyone with information about the whereabouts of Daquan Williams to contact 1-888-CRIME-SC or the Black and Missing Foundation’s Tip Line.
