The Investigation Discovery program will feature Chattanooga native Terrance Williams’ story on Monday at 9 p.m. on the Investigation Discovery Channel.

It has been scheduled to be shown again on various dates.

He was 27 when he went missing in Naples, Fla., in 2004 just a few days before his birthday. No trace of him has been found.

The CUE Center for Missing Persons visited Chattanooga in 2010 on the Road Rally tour through the States, his aunt, Pam Williams of Chattanooga, said.

The show's website had this to say about the case:

Terrance Williams was 27 when he went missing in Naples, Florida in 2004 just a few days before his birthday. No trace of him has been found. The CUE Center for Missing Persons visited Chattanooga in 2010 on the Road Rally tour through the States. Twenty-seven year old Terrance Williams is trying to make a fresh start in Naples, Florida. He has been working two jobs to cover the child support needs for his kids. So when the young father of four goes missing after an employee work party, his mother immediately suspects that something terrible has happened to her only son.

Unable to get assistance from the police, Terrance's mother petitions her family in Tennessee for help in tracking down her son. Although they don't find Terrance, within days, they are able to locate the young man's Cadillac, which has been sitting in a wrecking company's lot. Knowing he was driving the car without a license or insurance, his family fears Terrance has been arrested.

Terrance's family quickly learns the car was towed from a cemetery the morning after Terrance was last seen at the party. The missing man's mother goes directly to the cemetery to question employees. The story she is told sounds very suspicious. There are several witnesses who saw Terrance getting arrested by the same deputy that called dispatch to have the Cadillac towed. But when family finds no reports of an arrest or booking, they feel something is amiss.

Then, after a complaint is filed against the deputy, an internal affairs investigation unveils disturbing details, which sound eerily similar to the case of another missing man out of North Naples. Is the Collier County Sheriff's Office confronting a coincidence in the extreme? Or are they faced with investigating two missing person's cases, with the suspicion of foul play, where the only person of interest is one of their own?
