Becky Jane Williams UPDATE 2012

Becky has been Missing since 10-1-06. The person of interest in this case has been telling people that Becky has been found and buried. THIS IS NOT TRUE. BECKY IS STILL MISSING.

Her family was put into the CODIS system a year ago. They still think of Becky every day and wonder where she is and what happened to her. Becky's family and friends are still looking for her and do not intend on giving up their search. Not knowing is the hardest part. No matter what the circumstances... They want to bring Becky home.

Becky’s story is like so many others. She was a grown woman trying to find happiness and love. This quest led her to an involvement with a man her family did not approve of and a life they would never have wanted for her. It was a life she was trying to improve when she was reported missing.

Facts of the case: Becky was reported missing by her live in "BOYFRIEND". He told investigators, “She left walking. She was going to church. She never returned.”

The “Boyfriend”, was no stranger to Midland Police and was on probation at the time Becky disappeared. He has since violated his parole. During the investigation he was ask if he would be willing to take a polygraph test. He said yes, but shortly afterwards changed his mind. He has never taken a polygraph test and is still considered a person of interest.

Heather Cameron - Missing Aug. 18, 2012

Heather is missing from Redding California. She called 911 on 9/18/2012 claiming she had been drugged with heroin in the Keswick Dam area and hasn't been seen or heard from since.

Her estranged husband Shaun Cameron says Heather has had some drug problems but it's unlike her to go this long without trying to contact her three young daughters who live with him. Shaun said the last time he saw Heather was on August 11 when he took their three daughters to visit her. Saturday was their daughter's second birthday and because the family still hasn't heard anything from her, Shaun says he knows something is wrong. "As bad as she's ever gotten she's never not checked on her kids. She's a great mom. She's made bad decisions in the last year," said Shaun.

Search and Rescue teams searched the area around Keswick Dam but were unable to track her down.

Age:28 Height: 5' 6" Weight: 115 Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown

If you have any information concerning the disappearance of Heather Cameron please contact:
