    2 year old reported missing last night in Charleston. He was reported to have falled into Charleston Harbor at the Battery. Police called off the search this morning after determining that the child was never at the battery. Father has been arrested, but child is still missing.

    I hope this dad just has him hidden and has not harmed him. He has had custody of the boy for the past several months - so maybe, just maybe the child is safe.

    The Summerville Police Department (SPD) arrested Roger Williams on bench warrants as Charleston Police continue the search for his two-year-old son Rodricus Williams. According to the report, SPD officers responded to the Economy Inn around 4 a.m. Wednesday. When they knocked on the door a woman answered, but Williams told the officer “I’m the one you are looking for”. The officer says Williams then turned around to be handcuffed.The officer also reported the room smelled like marijuana, and there were burnt cigarettes in the room.

    The report also shows, Williams is wanted by Berkeley County, Dorchester County, and North Charleston.

    Williams son is still missing, but officials called off a search of the Battery in Downtown Charleston early Wednesday morning after police learned the child was never at the Battery. The child’s parents are in the midst of a custody battle which resulted in a police report being filed in Berkeley County Monday. Chief Mullen said, the mother traveled from Columbia to Charleston to pick-up Rodricus at the Battery.


    This doesn't sound good at all.

    "Mullen said the father has had custody of the child for the last two months. His mother drove from Columbia to Charleston Tuesday to take custody of the child from the father at The Battery, but the meeting never happened.

    I hope he did not do anything to this child. The mother was supposed to pick him up yesterday - was the "fell into the water" report an attempt to explain why dad couldn't turn the child over to the mother? I wonder when someone other than the father saw him last??

    I pray this little guy is found quickly and safely.
    I'm hoping he hid the child because he did not want to turn him over to the childs mother. Let's pray that is the case and he did not harm this child thinking he would lose custody and as a way to punish the childs mother.

    I'm hoping that he really is hidden away someplace... but there's a tiny voice in the back of my mind screaming obscenities and telling me that I'm wrong... I pray that the tiny voice is wrong...

    Almost 24 hours has passed since 2-year-old Rodricus Fred Williams was declared missing and authorities have arrested the boy's father. Sheriff's deputies in Berkeley County have scheduled a press conference to provide information in the ongoing investigation into Williams' disappearance. The press conference is tentatively scheduled for 5 p.m. (EDT)

    Oh no!

    I was so hoping he would be found alive.

    RIP Rodricus.

    Prayers for his mother, and the family that loved him.

    for the 'genetic contributor' - I hope they throw the book at him! What kind of 'gc' does this to their child? :furious:
