April Williams was born August 17, 1983 in Washington D.C., Baby April was 3 months old when she was kidnapped on December 3, 1983 by an unknown female. She hasn’t been seen or heard from since, nor has her abductor been identified and brought to justice.

An artist drew a composite sketch based on the description of the unknown abductor. Keep in mind that the description is based on what the kidnapper looked like in 1983, and she may look entirely different now that she’s 30 years older so it’s important to try an focus on certain facial features including the eyes, shape of face, nose, etc. A very good identifying factor is the mole (or birthmark) witnesses said they seen on the woman’s right cheek. She is described as a black female who had reddish hair (at the time), about 5’3” – 5’4”, weight unknown (although she is described as thinner rather than heavy.)

According to police she may have gone by the name “Latoya”, although it may have been a street name or an alias.

Strangers, esp females, who abduct babies are typically rare. When it does happen many speculate that the unknown woman could have fertility issues and may have kidnapped the child to raise as her own. This gives more hope to one day finding April Williams alive. April would be turning 30 this year and could be a mother herself, not realizing the ‘mother’ who raised her was actually a criminal who kidnapped her.

Baby April was last seen wearing a blue sleeper with a red number one along with a pink and white snowsuit. She has a birthmark on her right wrist.

A Facebook page called Are you the kidnapped April Williams? was created and has only gained 98 ‘likes’ despite millions of Facebook users on the internet daily. The abductor could have kidnapped April to raise her as her own child. She would be 30 years old this year and may be a mother herself, not realizing she is a kidnapped victim.
