June 23, 2001 – The Police Department is searching for one of its own. Wendell "Lazee" Williams, 47, an 18-year veteran of the force, has been missing since last week, according to a report in The Avis.
Deputy Police Chief Novelle Francis said Williams has been missing since at least June 17.
Williams, of Peter's Rest on St. Croix, is described as a black male, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds. Family members last saw him when he and his sister drove another relative to the Henry R. Rohlsen Airport, the newspaper quoted Fancis as saying.
Williams had been due to report to the Ancilmo Marshall Command for duty on the night shift of June 14, but failed to appear.
After a relative alerted police to Williams' disappearance about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, police began investigating immediately. Francis and members of Williams' family described Williams as "very responsible" and said they were baffled by his disappearance.
Williams' black Suzuki Vitara, license plate number CBB-164, was also reported as missing. There was an unsubstantiated report of the car being spotted at the St. Croix airport.
Anyone with information about Williams is asked to call the Criminal Investigation Bureau at 778-4950 or emergency number 911.
