Search continues for missing Brookhaven teen

Law enforcement officials are still searching for a Brookhaven teenager who has been missing for almost one week.

Thirteen-year-old Tralisia Williams was last seen Tuesday, Jan. 5, outside her home on South Second Street at approximately 1:15 p.m. She was wearing a black tank top, blue jeans, flip flops and a hair bonnet, according to Brookhaven Police Department Det. Cpt. Clint Earls, and flyers posted by family.

BPD Chief Kenneth Collins said his officers partnered with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office pursuing leads over the course of the weekend, as family and community members went door-to-door asking for information and help in locating Williams.

“We are still continually asking the public to help us locate Tralisia,” Chief Collins said. “This is a time for us to keep working together to help locate her.”

Anyone with any information as to the whereabouts of Tralisia Williams is asked to contact the Brookhaven Police Department at 601-833-2424.
