Home » Lillian Williams, 41: Went Missing In 1967 Or 1968
*Updated May 2023* I received an unexpected update about Lillian Williams from a young lady named Tikiera, Lillian’s great-granddaughter. Her grandfather is Lillian’s son. According to Tikiera, she didn’t know much about Ms. Lillian. However, she writes to OurBlackGirls (shared with permission):
“She vanished before I was born, but my family has always speculated that her boyfriend during the time had something to do with it. He was [abusive] and soon after my great-grandmother was reported missing, her boyfriend soon disappeared after too. Thank you for shedding light on her case 🙏🏾 My grandpa has never forgotten his mom and he has this exact same picture hanging in his living room in the center of the wall. ❤️.”
I appreciate Tikiera for sharing and allowing me to update the article.
It is unfortunate when little information about a case is shared, but it is downright upsetting when there aren’t even descriptive stats about a missing person. Once again, a case from Louisiana captured my attention because so little information was given about Lillian Williams. The 41-year-old disappeared from Grambling in the 1960s; however, it is unclear what year she last made contact with friends, colleagues, or loved ones.
According to databases, Lillian Williams was last seen at her home at Grambling State University in Lincoln Parish. It was reported in either 1967 or 1968—and sadly, that is all we know about the missing woman. She has never been seen or heard from since that time. Further, there wasn’t any information about Lillian’s family, whether she was married or had children, or the search efforts related to this case.
At the time of her disappearance, Lillian Williams stood between 5 feet to 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed 90 to 200 pounds (these stats suggest that her height and weight were unknown). She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. No other descriptors were given. Her middle name is “Culbert.” Lillian’s dental records and fingerprints are reportedly not on file, but her DNA profile is available. She would be well into her 90s if still alive.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office at (318) 251-5111 or their local authorities. The agency case number is 14080153.
Please share this story about Lillian Williams to help reignite interest in her missing person case. She is our sister, and her life matters.
