    James Davis Walker is from the area where we live. The Food Lion where he disappeared from is about 10 miles away. After he disappeared two ponds in our area were drained from what I'm told. I'll see if I can find any links to verify that. His family needs answers and closure.

    My mom just told me today that James was her cousin's ex husband. I did not know this. I had never met him as far as I can remember.

    Yes he has family who still live in our neighborhood. Local law enforcement started searching an area in our neighborhood last week and we were sure they had re-opened James' missing person case but it was not James they were looking for. We found out a few days later that this intensive search was for the 2 missing Lyon Sisters from Maryland, a case that is 39 years old. But because of the Lyon Sister case, more attention is now being focused on James and we're praying he'll be found in the process too. I spoke to one of James' children through Facebook a few days ago and they want their father back, they need closure.

    He was very tall and thin...tall enough to be memorable.

    Also, we're the details about the prison inmate's story ever fleshed out to the public? As in how was this inmate connected to either Adams or Walker?

    There isn't any connection between the missing Lyon sisters and missing James Walker. The only common thread they have is Taylor's Mountain. The inmate, Lloyd Lee Welch, Jr. (aka Michael) doesn't have any connection to Adams or Walker. I don't recall ever meeting Adams even though he was once married to a distant cousin of mine and I doubt he was even born when the Lyon sisters went missing. I guess there might be a very slight chance that Adams' ancestors and Welch's ancestors were related back in the day, if Adams' ancestors were from our area but I highly doubt there is a connection between the two at all.

    Here's one of the most recent updates on James' case:

    "His tall and slender physique earned him the nickname "slim," but family members say James Walker was never thin on generosity.

    "Dad would help anybody at anytime, whenever he was able," said Bobby Walker, James Walker's son. Walker's children stay focused on the positive memories of their father. It keeps them motivated to find out what happened to him.

    Walker disappeared during a shopping trip 14 years ago. Police say he traveled to the Food Lion in Bedford on April 7, 2000. He was accompanied by three people from Taylor's Mountain."

    Hello beachlvr0810.
    I was wondering how do you know that LLW, Jr. was the "inmate" mentioned in the description?
    Thank you.
