We are once again confronted with a cold case from years ago that still has little to no coverage. Reports about the personal and professional life of Dorothy Williams are scarce, but what is known is that the 23-year-old went missing on January 13, 1987. A quick trip to the store would be the making of a mystery, and for decades, there haven’t been any updates on what may have happened to Dorothy that fateful day.

It’s unclear if she traveled by foot or by car, but the young woman never returned and reportedly hasn’t made contact with loved ones. That information is just about all that is known about Dorothy and who she may have run into or what witnesses may have seen her during her travels is unknown.

At the time of her disappearance, Dorothy Williams stood 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighed 130 pounds. She had red/auburn hair and brown eyes. Dorothy was said to have previously suffered a broken arm and has surgically inserted metal into her right elbow. She was last seen wearing a black and white speckled coat, a pink sweatshirt, dark blue pants, and black flat shoes. She was known to use the aliases “Dee,” “Dot,” “Dorothy Thornton” and she has also been included in reports that list her name as “Shirley Williams.” Dorothy would be 57-years-old at the time of this publication.
