    Details of Disappearance
    Williams was last seen on September 28, 2004 in the 400 block of east 10th Street in Morris, Minnesota, on the campus of the University of Minnesota at Morris. He was planning to go on a fishing and hunting trip in Two Harbors, Minnesota. He was apparently traveling alone. Two days later, some sheriff's deputies saw his teal and white 1966 Ford F-150 pickup truck on the Kawishiwi Lake Road off County Road 7 in Lake County, Minnesota, north of Two Harbors. Williams never returned home and he has never been heard from again. He was reported missing on October 7. A photograph of his truck is posted below this case summary.

    Williams's truck was later found parked along a back road near Kawishiwi Lake near the Boundary Waters curve area; there was no sign of him at the scene. He and his family resided in Silver Springs, Maryland in 2004, but he was a student at the University of Minnesota at Morris and lived in Morris with roommates during the school year. He is described as an avid fisherman who has taken several extended fishing trips before. Authorities do not believe Williams committed suicide, but the circumstances surrounding his disappearance are unclear. Both Morris and Lake County authorities are investigating his case.

    Was he attending classes at the time? He told his roommate he would be gone for a week? In late Sept?

    They seem to gloss over that fact. At first I thought the university operated through "quarters" and not "semesters" but according to the school's calendar, the first day of classes that year was August 30th. If he was living in a dorm, he had to be taking classes but perhaps he had a different schedule.

    Let this be a lesson for all of us. Never go into bear country or let alone the minnesota northwoods alone. Especially if you are a non resident. I think the best thing you can do is look at where his truck was left then try to determine where he is going to walk to go fishing.

    "Nathan Williams was the kind of kid who would take off on a whim and disappear for days, mostly to fish or knock around in the woods. He even told friends he dreamed of living off the land, disappearing into the wilds and living off his own means, like a Special Forces soldier."

    This paragraph right here may just say it all about this case. And if that is the case, he is possibly alive and living his dream up there still today.
