In a brief news conference at 4:30 this afternoon, Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said the remains found earlier today are believed to be those of Taylor Rose Williams.

Taylor’s mother Brianna Williams will be arrested on charges of child neglect and making false statements regarding an investigation. The sheriff said Williams is currently in severe condition at an area hospital.

The investigation into Taylor’s death is ongoing.


Teams searching in Demopolis for a missing 5-year-old girl missing from Florida uncovered human remains in a wooded area between Linden and Demopolis this morning, Demopolis police say.

Taylor Rose Williams, from Jacksonville, Florida, was reported missing Nov. 6 by her mother. Authorities said the search lead investigators to Demopolis because Williams’ mother Brianna used to live there.

Demopolis Police Chief Rex Flowers said the remains found have not yet been identified.

Flowers said the search effort included more than a dozen agencies including the Demopolis Police Department, Demopolis Fire Department, Linden Police Department, Marengo County Sheriff’s Office, Alabama Law Enforcement Agency State Bureau of Investigations, 17th Circuit Drug Task Force, 17th Circuit District Attorney’s Office, Alabama Attorney Generals Office, FBI offices in Mobile, Birmingham and Jacksonville, several units within the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Jacksonville Fire and Rescue and the State Attorney’s Office.
