Williams, age 22, went missing after tubing with a dozen or so friends near the Old Sheep Bridge. Reportedly some of the tubes were tied together, but didn’t stay together.

“They came around the bend and he did not come around with them,” said MCSO’s Chris Hegstrom. “They thought maybe he got out, maybe he did some other things..they finally went home..they went back to Chandler where they’re from.  Realized he hadn’t made it there and then they called us, so at about 9:00 last night we began searching for him.”

Williams was last seen sometime between 4 and 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Rescue teams have been searching for Williams by air, on land, and in water since Monday. They continued the search Tuesday when the sun came up, but stopped searching when a weather alert popped up in the afternoon.

According to MCSO, friends told them that Williams was not under the influence of alcohol.
