Richmond, Va. — The family of a Four Oaks native who went missing under suspicious circumstances from Richmond, Va., last week is offering a $10,000 reward for information that helps authorities find him.
Matthew Henry Williams, 23, recently graduated from Campbell University and moved to Richmond in late November for a job in finance.
"He is an energetic, larger-than-life you man who's a friend to everyone he meets," Williams' aunt Debbie Owens said.
He was last seen on Dec. 13, when surveillance cameras at his apartment building show him entering his apartment with three unknown men and leaving about an hour later.
Two hours after that, cameras caught two of the same men breaking into the apartment and leaving with a television and video game system, police said.
Williams has not been seen since.
Police identified and arrested the three men who allegedly burglarized Williams' apartment. Tre S. Carrington, 24, Erik S. Finger Jr., 22, and Andrew L. Scott, 21, were each charged with felony conspiracy to commit burglary, and police said they are persons of interest in Williams' disappearance.
Williams is white with reddish-auburn hair and fair skin. He is about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds.
Anyone with information on Williams' whereabouts is asked to call the Richmond Police Department at 804-514-8477 or Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
