Emontay Williams was recovered on Saturday, July 20, 2013.  Emontay was seen by several people attending a small festival .  These people took Emontay into their custody, keeping control of him as he tried to fight them off.  The police were called and Emontay was released to his father.  For now Emontay is home safe, and I truly hope that the family gets the help they need to ensure this doesn’t happen again.  Thank you to all of those who followed his case and helped to bring him home safely, especially those who spotted the boy and kept him safe until police arrived.

Missing: July 2, 2013     From: Harrisburg, PA







Emontay was last seen by his family on July 1, 2013.  At some point he climbed out a window when his family thought he was sleeping.  Police say there is a possibility that Emontay is staying with friends in Allison Hill who are not aware that he has been reported missing.  There have been several sightings of Emontay in the area.  Police spotted Emontay this afternoon (July 19, 2013), however Emontay ran from the officers.  We are asking everyone to keep their eyes open.  While this young man is running from law enforcement, he is only 9 years old, and he needs the assistance of authorities to ensure that he is safe and provided with whatever care he needs, mentally, emotionally and physically.

I will say that I am confused as to how this little boy could be staying with friends that are unaware he has been reported missing.  I have 3 boys, 10, 8 and 6, and I assure you that if one of their friends wanted to spend even a single night at my home, I would contact his parents to make sure they were alright with him doing so.  Anyone who has more information, please feel free to comment, we are currently working in the dark a little here without much to go on.  There has been no information released as to why Emontay has run away from home.

  1. Did anyone ever think to ask why this little boy would run away at age 9 and stay gone for so long? Did anyone ever think to ask why he would try to fight people off their trying to return into his dad and his stepmother? Perhaps, someone should ascertain why this little boy felt unsafe at home and was so desperate not to return there but, no, of course, they just send him back without question. I’m sure this is not going to end well.
