    FBI Seeking Information on Disappearance of Two New Jersey Boys Missing Since 1975

    FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Newark Field Office Timothy Gallagher today announced that two boys, David Williams and Steven Anderson, who vanished in 1975, have been added to the FBI’s website in the Kidnapping/Missing Persons section.

    On April 7, 1975, David Williams, who was 12 years old, and Steven Anderson, who was 17 years old, were reported missing by staff from the New Lisbon State School, now called the New Lisbon Developmental Center. Williams and Anderson lived at the state facility, which is located in Burlington County, New Jersey.

    Both Williams and Anderson had developmental disabilities and were unable to care for themselves without supervision. Williams was an epileptic, who wore a protective helmet and needed to take daily anti-seizure medication. Anderson was in good physical condition, but had trouble communicating.

    Williams and Anderson were roommates, and were last seen at approximately 4:15 PM, near their residence on the sprawling 1,896-acre complex off Route 72, in the New Jersey Pinelands.

    Williams was from Newark, New Jersey, and would be 55 years old today. He is a black male, and at the time of his disappearance had dark hair, brown eyes, was 5-feet tall, and weighed approximately 113 pounds. Williams was last seen wearing a blue jacket and striped pants.

    Anderson was from Westville, Gloucester County, New Jersey and would be 60 years old today. He is a white male, and at the time of his disappearance had brown hair, blue eyes, was 5-feet-8-inches tall, and weighed approximately 141 pounds. Anderson was last seen wearing a blue hooded jacket and blue pants.

    According to various reports, the New Jersey Human Services Police Department, New Jersey State Police-Red Lion Station, Pemberton Township Police Department and the Air National Guard all were notified of the disappearance, and in the days following, assisted in the search, aided by the use of helicopters, blood hounds and ground searchers. Both boys are listed as Missing Persons with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

    NCMEC, located in Alexandria, Virginia, has been assisting in this investigation, and has created age progressed pictures of what Williams and Anderson may look like today.

    The New Jersey Department of Human Services Police (DHS) is the primary agency investigating this case, and is assisted by FBI Newark-Atlantic City Resident Agency, and the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit. The investigation into the disappearance of Williams and Anderson has been ongoing, but recent developments have provided promising new information.

    FBI Newark Special Agent in Charge Timothy Gallagher advised that “Whenever there is a case involving any missing child, no matter how long they have been missing, it will always be a top priority for the FBI. We will work with our local, state, and federal partners, to someday bring closure for the families of these two missing children."

    “On behalf of DHS, I want to thank the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children for assisting our police and staff to raise awareness on a much broader scale than we have been able to achieve alone,” said acting Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Elizabeth Connolly. “We are hopeful that this newest push for information will provide the answers we all need to find a resolution to these cases.”

    NCMEC’s Vice President of the Missing Children’s Division Robert Lowery, Jr advised "The work of the New Jersey Human Services Police Department serves as a shining example of the caring and commitment we very often see from law enforcement when it comes to searching for children - no matter how long they have been missing. Even though Steven and David have been missing since 1975 these officers have never given up in their determination in finding them and getting the answers their families so very much deserve. We applaud each of them for their outstanding dedication and compassion."

    FBI searching NJ woods in 1970s missing persons' case

    FBI agents are searching the woods in New Jersey in connection with a missing persons' case that dates back to the 1970s, sources told Eyewitness News.

    Investigators are looking for evidence on Mayetta Landing Road near Route 9 in in the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. That's located in Stafford Township in Ocean County.

    They are working on the case of two developmentally disabled boys -- Steven Anderson, then 17, and David Williams, then 12 -- who disappeared in April 1975 from the New Lisbon State School in Burlington County.

    FBI searching Stafford wildlife refuge for boys missing since 1975: Reports

    A 42-year-old case involving two missing youths from a state school led FBI agents to search a remote part of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge Tuesday.

    FBI officials would not comment on what they termed an "investigative activity" off Mayetta Landing Road near the Barnegat Bay that involved several SUVs, a blocked off road and a number of agents and investigators.

    However, the investigation apparently centered around two boys who went missing from the New Lisbon State School in Burlington County four decades ago, according to reports from News 12 New Jersey and WPVI-TV in Philadelphia.


    The refuge is a federal wildlife area that encompasses 42,000 coastal acres in Ocean and Atlantic counties.

    Dulce Maria Alavez joins 9 others from Philly area on FBI list of high-profile missing-person cases

    When the FBI put Dulce Maria Alavez on its “Most Wanted” list of missing or kidnapped people this week, the 5-year-old Bridgeton, N.J., girl joined nine others from around the Philadelphia region whose disappearances have baffled investigators for years.

    The FBI list includes about 90 people in total.


    David Williams and Steven Anderson were supposed to be in a safe place. The two were roommates at the New Lisbon State School for people with developmental disabilities, located in the heart of the Pinelands in Burlington County.

    David, an epileptic who needed daily medication, generally wore a helmet to protect his head in case of seizure. Anderson had difficulty communicating. David, then 12, and Anderson, then 17, were last seen walking back to their residence about 4:15 p.m. April 7, 1975, after a ball game with staff members at a nearby field. A search of the 1,900-acre facility and surrounding area found no trace of the pair. The Inquirer reported at the time that the school’s superintendent said bloodhounds traced the two to Route 72 before losing their scent.

    Williams would be 56 if still alive. Anderson would be 62.
