Update on Madison Kidnapping Case


April 26, 2016

MADISON, Fla. – Investigators began delivering flyers door-to-door in Madison, Florida searching for information on the kidnapping of 7-year-old Bryan Williamson.  The child was kidnapped from Gibson Trailer Park on April 17, 2016 between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. and dropped off in Jacksonville between 5 and 7 a.m. on Monday, April 18, 2016.

“We have physical evidence in this case allowing investigators to quickly rule out potential suspects from the tips coming in,” said FDLE Special Agent in Charge Mark Perez.  “Someone knows something and we are waiting for that one tip to tie the case together.  No piece of information is too small; please call the tip line with any information.”

Investigators say the suspect was driving a dark colored or black sedan and is possibly a black or Hispanic male that may be familiar with the area surrounding the Gibson Trailer Park.

Please contact the tip line, 1-800-CALL-FBI if you know someone who may live or work between Madison and Jacksonville or who planned to travel from Madison to Jacksonville on April 17-18 or if you know someone with a vehicle matching the description above who suddenly stopped driving a sedan, parked it out of site, or has left the area.

In the coming days, flyers will be distributed throughout Florida and southern Georgia. In addition to the flyers, digital billboards have been placed along the I-10 corridor from Tallahassee to Jacksonville and will be placed on I-75, south of I-10.
