GREENSBORO, N.C. — Three months since Greensboro teen Tyarra Williams was last seen, the missing girl’s mother says her determination and will to find her daughter are just as strong as on day one.

“I never expected the search for her to go on this long,” mother, Danielle Williams, said. “But I have to stay strong to continue to search for her. I can’t give up. Because if I give up, who else is going to continue the fight?”

The 19-year-old was last seen Jan. 7 at the Stoneybrook Apartments off of Webster Road in Greensboro. In following weeks, hundreds of community members came together to search in person and share her photo on social media and billboards across the Triad.

Now, Danielle Williams says the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has added her to its database.

“I’ve even had people from overseas reach out to us and let us know they’re praying from the UK, from China, from Japan,” she said.

Williams said she is confident her daughter is alive and is being held against her will.

“If she could be home, she would be home,” she said. “So let her come home. Let her come home.”
