Mother applies for new appeal after twenty one years of her teenager’s son disappearance.

Family Appeals for Information on Missing Teenager

The family of Robert Williams, a teenager missing for over 21 years and presumed deceased, is making a heartfelt plea for information regarding his fate.

A Prolonged Disappearance

Robert Williams was a mere 15 years old when he was last seen alive, and despite multiple appeals from the police over the years, his whereabouts remain unknown.

Last Known Movements

The teenager left his home in Resolven, Neath, South Wales, on March 22, 2002, and it is documented that he attended a house party in the neighboring village of Aberdulais the following day.

A Mother’s Desperate Plea

Robert’s mother, Cheryl, expressed her profound anguish, stating, “I know that Robert is never coming home. I just want his body back so I can bury him. He deserves that. I don’t want him out there on his own, and we need closure as a family. Someone out there knows what happened to him. As a mother, knowing my child is lying somewhere has destroyed me emotionally and physically. I need to know what happened to him.”

Hope Lies with the Community

Detectives working on the case believe that the local community in Aberdulais may hold crucial information regarding Robert’s fate. He would have turned 37 on September 9, and investigators are determined to uncover the truth.

Police Appeal for Information

Detective Inspector Dai Butt emphasized the ongoing commitment to solving Robert’s case, stating, “All outstanding missing person cases remain open and are revisited periodically in case new evidence comes to light. We remain committed to finding out what happened to Robert. I believe that the local community of Aberdulais holds key information that might help us understand what happened to him.”

Crucial House Party

It is known that Robert attended a house party in Tair Felin, Aberdulais, on Saturday, March 23, 2002, where other local individuals were present. The police are urging anyone who was at the party or possesses information about Robert’s movements or disappearance to come forward.

Importance of Small Details

Detective Inspector Butt stressed the significance of even seemingly minor details, saying, “It may seem challenging to recall details from 21 years ago, but, no matter how small or insignificant you think the information you hold is, it could prove vital to our investigation and could help provide Robert’s family with much-needed closure. All this time without answers has been agony for them – please, if you hold information, it is not too late after all this time to come forward.”

Conclusion of Case Review

In 2011, a year-long case review concluded that Robert Williams is most likely deceased, as no evidence has emerged to indicate that he is still alive.
