    Details of Disappearance
    Williams was living with a man in Sandy Springs, Georgia in 1988. She told her mother she was afraid of the man and wanted to leave him. The couple sometimes visited her family in Ohio and stayed in hotels in Wheeling, West Virginia during the visits.

    Williams's family has not heard from her since March 1988. She had an occasionally troubled life and an arrest record, but her family says it is uncharacteristic of her to be out of touch with them for so long. They fear Williams met with foul play. Belmont County, Ohio authorities are investigating her case.

    Cold case opened for missing woman

    For nearly 30 years, Shirley Scott Davis has wondered what happened to her sister. Now, law enforcement officers from Georgia are trying to help Davis and her family find some answers in Belmont County.

    Davis said Nancy Williams was born and raised in Powhatan and was living in Georgia with a man her family did not know very well when they lost contact with her. The family members all lived in Powhatan Point, according to Davis, and her Nancy would “hang out” in Bellaire and Wheeling.

    The man in Nancy’s life was identified by Davis as Robert Mayhew, aka Bob or Tom Katz and Bob or Tim Wilson. She said he would accompany her sister on frequent trips back and forth from Georgia to the Ohio Valley.

    The detectives said they are not sure about the identity or the whereabouts of “Robert Mayhew.” They added that they would appreciate any information that a member of the public might be able to provide about him, since they would like to talk to him about the case.
    The detectives currently investigating the case said the Georgia apartment complex where Nancy and her male companion lived is now gone, and no activity has been associated with her Social Security number since 1988. They believe she was murdered, though they have no physical evidence of her remains.

    They also believe that her death occurred in the Ohio Valley and that someone still living in the local area today has information about her disappearance. That is why the Sandy Springs Police Department is offering a $10,000 reward for information about Nancy Williams’ whereabouts or leading to prosecution in the case.

    J.T. Williams said he and Jon Williams have strong reason to believe someone in or around Powhatan Point has information that could help them with the case. Together, they spent time last week doing a general canvass of the area, interviewing residents and learning what they could.

    She had a young daughter, but that may have been about all she had going for her. The Sandy Springs, Ga., police detectives investigating her disappearance said Williams lived a hard life — a fact that several of her family members acknowledged when it was discussed last week. Davis didn’t mince words when describing Williams.

    “She was a known drug user and a prostitute,” Davis said of her sister. “I’m not like that. My mother was a Christian, and I am, too. But she was still my sister.”
    Sandy Springs Detectives Jon Williams and J.T. Williams traveled to Belmont County last week to meet with the missing woman’s family in Powhatan Point and to search for clues in her disappearance. They became involved in the investigation after Davis reached out for help.
    Davis said her sister “kept a room” at the Rogers Hotel in Wheeling, where she would sell sexual favors.
    “Nancy had lived a low lifestyle, had been known to hitchhike, been into prostitution, frequent to bars and had been in several jails,” Davis wrote about her sister.
    The woman’s last contact with her family came in early 1988 by phone. Relatives also received a collect call from the man Nancy was living with in February 1988. He told them Nancy had left him and was headed for the Ohio Valley.

    Nancy Williams was never seen or heard from again.
