Riyla Alert Brittany Renee WIlliams

Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance

Missing Since: August 18, 2000 from Richmond, Virginia
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date of Birth: March 20, 1993
Age: 7 years old
Height and Weight: 3'8, 65 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Black hair, brown eyes. Williams is biracial, African-American and Caucasian. She has a light complexion and scars on her face from chicken pox. Williams also has a tube inserted into her chest.
Medical Conditions: Williams has acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Because of this she is extremely susceptible to illness. She is great need of medical attention.

Details of Disappearance
Williams's mother gave her to the custody of a guardian, Kim Parker, in 1996, when Williams was three years old. A photograph of Parker is posted below this case summary. Williams's mother died of AIDS a short time later. She and Parker had met through Rainbow Kids Inc., a charity that provides long-term care for children with AIDS. Parker cares for two other children infected with AIDS. She claims she gave Williams over to the care of a friend named Linda Hodges in August 2000 because caring for her had become too stressful. Hodges returned for Christmas that year with Williams and a friend of hers called Kathie Evans, then left again with the child. Parker says she paid Jones $3,000 cash to take Williams and later mailed her another $5,000, but she has not heard from either Jones or Williams since December 2000. The last person besides Parker to see Williams was a doctor whom Williams visited in August 2000.
Williams's disappearance was not discovered by authorities until January 2003. Parker said she did not know the addresses of the women allegedly caring for the child; she only said that she thought they were in California. Parker continued to collect the child's $500 monthly benefit check from the Department of Children and Families until the summer of 2002, using the money to renovate her home. She says she expects Williams to come home.
When law enforcement discovered that Williams had been missing over two years, custody of her was given over to the local Social Services Department and they were ordered to find her. She is considered endangered. In February 2003, Parker was ordered to serve 20 days in jail for contempt of court in connection with her failure to tell police where Williams is. She has hired a lawyer, who is appealing on the grounds Parker cannot tell the authorities what she does not know. In April 2003, Parker was indicted on 73 felony charges, mostly fraud and money laundering, relating to Williams's case. Police say she accepted over $16,000 from private individuals and the government for the care of Williams when the girl was not living in her home, and that she illegally attempted to conceal the sources of the money. On the advice of her attorney, Parker pleaded guilty to one count of mail fraud and one count of wire fraud in July 2003. She was then charged with three counts of medical-assistance payment fraud, for allowing Williams's Medicaid payments to continue needlessly. She could face up to a hundred years total if given the maximum sentences for all charges.
In late March 2003, authorities tracked down the two women Parker says she gave Williams to. Neither Hodges nor Evans had ever had custody of Williams or knew where she was. They were both volunteers with Rainbow Kids Inc. and had actually been planning to have Williams visit them in California, but the plans had not been finalized by the time she disappeared. They have joined in the search for her.
In May 2003, authorities thoroughly searched Parker's home and drained her septic system, looking for Williams's remains or any sign that she had died there. A neighbor claimed she reported Parker twice for abusing and/or neglecting Williams, and Hodges says she reported Parker as well. However, nothing fruitful was found at the residence.
Police are considering a possible link between Williams and Precious Doe, an unidentified African-American girl whose naked and decapitated remains were discovered in Kansas City park in 2001. Composite images of the child are shown below this case summary. Despite widespread publicity, including a profile on the television crime show America's Most Wanted, Precious Doe has never been identified. When they discovered her remains, the authorities believed she was between three and six years old. Williams was seven at the time of her disappearance, but she is of petite stature and could pass for a younger child. At the time of her 2000 disappearance, Williams was about the same height as Precious Doe. Those who know Williams, however, say she did not have a birthmark on her shoulder or a chipped tooth. Precious Doe had both of these characteristics. In addition, Precious Doe had a dark complexion; Williams has a light complexion.
DNA tests were conducted on Precious Doe, using a sample from an incarcerated man who claims to be Williams's father. His name is on her birth certificate as the father; however, paternity was never legally established. The DNA from the man did not match Precious Doe's, but since he has not been proven to be Williams's father the authorities are now comparing Precious Doe's DNA to a sample from one of Williams's mother's relatives to acertain that Williams is not the unidentified child. Tests have already been done on the missing African-American children Rilya Wilson and Teekah Lewis and they have been ruled out as potential Precious Does.
In the meantime, Williams remains missing and her case is unsolved.

Case Type: Endangered Missing
DOB: Dec 15, 1999 Sex: Male
Missing Date: Jun 23, 2002 Race: Black
Age Now: 9 Height: 3'0" (91 cm)
Missing City: IRVINGTON Weight: 32 lbs (15 kg)
Missing State : NJ Hair Color: Brown
Missing Country: United States Eye Color: Brown

Jyrine was last seen sleeping in his bed on the second floor of his home on 40th Street in Irvington, New Jersey at 1:00 a.m. on June 23, 2002. He disappeared in the early hours of the morning while his teenage sister, LaElisa Harris, was watching television downstairs with her boyfriend, Gregory Jones-McCrae. The family searched the house before reporting Jyrine's disappearance to police at 5:00 a.m.
Jyrine lived with his grandmother and eight other people, including LaElisa, at the time of his disappearance. He had been taken from the home of his mother, Janet Harris, on May 31 after she was arrested on charges of abusing him. Janet was still in police custody at the time her son disappeared. (The charges against her were dropped after his disappearance, as it was determined that Jyrine could have sustained his injuries as a result of his bone disease rather than from abuse.) Authorities do not believe Jyrine was taken by either of his parents. It is also unlikely that he wandered away from the home, due to the broken leg which limited his mobility, and due to the fact that he has not been found.

Police have stated that Jones-McCrae has not been cooperative in the investigation. He has not been charged in connection with Jyrine's disappearance, however. Jyrine's four-year-old cousin, who shared a bedroom with him, says a Caucasian man and an African-American man abducted the child. Janet and Jyrine's father do not believe he was abducted, however; Janet believes there was an accident in the home that night and Jyrine disappeared as a result.

Most of the people in Jyrine's house the night he vanished have not been ruled out as suspects in his disappearance, but there is little evidence available in his case. His case remains unsolved.

Rilya Alert Alexander Sol Olive

Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance

Missing Since: November 9, 1985 from South Lake Tahoe, California
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: May 16, 1981
Age: 4 years old
Height and Weight: 4'0; 35 pounds

Distinguishing Characteristics: Red hair; brown eyes. Alexander has a birthmark on his left calf. He has a very small scar on the right corner of his mouth and scars around both of his ankles. Alexander is referred to as "Salaam Alexander Roberson" by his father. He is biracial, of African-American and Arab-American descent.

Details of Disappearance

Alexander was initially abducted by his non-custodial father, Ulysses H. Roberson, on November 9, 1985 from his home in San Francisco, California. His mother, Rosemary Olive, went to Roberson's South Lake Tahoe, California home in December 1985 and demanded to know her son's whereabouts. Roberson refused to divulge the information and assaulted Rosemary. Roberson was convicted and served one year in jail for abusing Rosemary, who won a court order seeking Alexander's return to her custody. The child has never been located.
Roberson has been the prime suspect in Alexander's disappearance since the onset of the investigation. He is often referred to as a 'cult-like figure' in the press and allegedly lured many women into abusive relationships over the years. Roberson advertised himself as an 'astrologer' and promised horoscopes to female victims, then began abusing them. He is reportedly a charismatic person who often lured other women into abusive situations by offering drugs or alcohol as a means of coercion.
Roberson was convicted of raping a young girl and abusing a young boy in Washington after Alexander disappeared. Investigators lacked enough evidence to charge him in Alexander's presumed death for years, although a female witness claimed she saw Roberson beat Alexander with a piece of firewood in South Lake Tahoe shortly after the child was abducted. The witness stated that Roberson found Alexander hiding in the garage with a blanket. The witness said that Roberson remarked the child had 'spunk,' saying he was 'almost dead' after the abuse and still had the strength to hide. Prosecutors were unable to locate additional evidence to substantiate the woman's story at the time, although investigators believed that Roberson had indeed murdered Alexander.
Authorities were able to persuade an additional witness to testify against Roberson in his son's case in 2001. The woman stated that she saw Roberson beat Alexander to death in late 1985. The witness said that Roberson loaded his son's remains into his van and forced her into the passenger's seat. She said that Roberson ordered her to keep her eyes closed during the journey and threatened to kill her if she disobeyed. The witness remembered little about the ride, but said that Roberson stopped the van near a body of water in the South Lake Tahoe region. He then allegedly continued to drive for an additional two to three hours before stopping at a remote location in California or Nevada. Authorities believe Roberson buried Alexander's body somewhere in that area.
DNA tests in 2001 proved that Alexander's blood was located on clothing found in Roberson's van in 1986. The new scientific evidence, along with the additional witness' statements, allowed investigators to charge Roberson with Alexander's murder in October 2001. Authorities are continuing to search for Alexander's remains. His mother has since kept a low profile and is attempting to rebuild her life.
