Is 16 year old Carmia Williams another Victim of Predators?

Local High School Student Missing Feared to Have Fallen Victim to Internet Predator

Posted: February 20, 2006

It is yet the latest incident possibly linked to and similar web pages.

Police are investigating the disappearance of a 16-year-old Newark girl whose mother believes may have runoff with an older man. A man she met on who was posing as a teenager. Her mother has not heard from her at all in well over a week and she is very worried.

Sabrina Prado/missing girl's mom: "Even her closest friends that she has known for years, she hasn't contacted them and the scariest thing is, she's not made any activity on her cell phone at all."

Sabrina Prado of Newark, Delaware says she last saw her 16-year-old daughter Carmia Williams, a freshman at Newark High School, on Thursday February 9th.

"I told her 'I will see you tomorrow. If your report card is bad I will be taking your cell phone away from you.'"

She hasn't seen Carmia since.

As part of her search to find her she went on the Internet to see what her daughter had been up. She discovered she had been on websites like talking to men who it turns out were posing as teenagers.

"You got 30-year-old men that are emailing my daughter, 39-year-old men emailing, sending her poems."

Email records Prado found indicate she last communicated with a man in Brunswick, New Jersey and a 21-year-old in Wilmington, Delaware that she recently referred to in a letter as her boyfriend.

"I know I will never leave you for anyone else and even if I am not pregnant, I know we will try again and then we will both be ready for that step in life."

Wilmington police have questioned that man and searched his house but haven't found anything that would make him a suspect. The man in Brunswick has not been located.

It is the latest incident possibly linked to Internet websites like, the leader of social networking sites that encourage users to build larger circles of friends.

But perhaps not surprisingly, authorities are discovering that sexual predators are also on those web pages looking for prey. What Sabina Prado found has been a wake up call.

"The internet is not safe for anyone, I didn't know there was so much information that these children can access especially on myspace."

"There are so many children out there, little boys and girls putting their information out and I'm sure their parents are not aware."

Operators for are working on making the popular website a safer place including plans to appoint a safety czar to oversee the site.

Meanwhile the investigation into what happened to 16-year-old Carmia Williams continues.

Diane Christine Pierce 45, Endangered/Missing in Sugarloaf California

"If Diane Christine Pierce doesn't take her diabetic medications soon, she may die. But the problem is, she's missing. "

The search continues tonight for a missing Palm Springs woman and it could be a matter of life and death. Diane Pierce hasn't been seen since last week. The 45-year old was reported missing after going to the Spa Resort Casino in Palm Springs with her boyfriend on Wednesday. A police report says that they returned to separate hotel rooms around 2:30 in the morning. Search and rescue teams began looking for her yesterday near the Sugarloaf Mountain area along Highway 74. Her car was found there over the weekend.

“If she didn't take her insulin with her, ketoacidosis, other problems, could result in not having her insulin.”

A Department of Forestry worker spotted the car Thursday afternoon. He didn't think anything suspicious about it until he spotted the same car at the same spot for the next two days. On Sunday, this parking lot became the watch command post for a search and rescue team.

Search crews found no sign of the 5’ 1”, 190 lbs woman. And if that wasn't heartbreaking enough, there was worse news. “We've experienced a little snow storm. The snow level is couple of thousand feet above us, but it was spitting snow at this elevation yesterday. It got down to freezing last night.”
