Dive crews continue search for missing DeKalb grandmother

Divers searched a DeKalb County lake Sunday to try and find a missing grandmother after her grandson was charged with murder in her disappearance.

Channel 2's Tom Regan looked on as divers from the DeKalb County Fire Department spent about seven hours combing parts of the lake near Chapel Hill Park, searching for Millicent Williams.

Her grandson is accused of killing her at her home no far from the lake, and then disposed of the body.

Divers scoured the muddy waters of the lake, hoping to find the missing grandmother.

Williams was last seen in her home, but when police searched it, they only found blood.

The evidence led investigators to charge her 37-year-old grandson, Gregory Williams, with murder, kidnapping and other charges.

"I can't remember anything like this happening in our area," search volunteer Mildred Ray told Regan.

Ray recruited her granddaughter, Heather, to help search for Millicent Williams in the woods near the lake.

'I'm very concerned about this older lady, because this is like my grandmother and grandmothers do a lot for their grandkids," Heather Ray said.

Police say the accused grandson has obtained an attorney and is not giving them any help in the search.

"This is just one of the places that we have to check and eliminate as a possibility," Sgt. Bryan Danner with the DeKalb County Police Department told Regan.

Lavida Bennett, who heads up the local HOA, hope that the crews will find Williams.

"This is truly an unfortunate situation. This is usually a quiet neighborhood over here. I just hope they find her," Bennett told Regan.

Police investigators haven't decided whether they will resume the search for the missing grandmother on Monday or move to another location.

  • Fires in Paulding County that destroyed five homes, damaged 14 others and injured one person early Sunday started as the result of arson, officials said.  A person of interest is in custody on charges unrelated to the fires on Rosemont Court in Hiram, said Glenn Allen, spokesman for the state insurance and safety fire commissioner's office. The identity of that woman will be released when she is formally charged with arson, he said.  The initial fire started about 3:25 a.m. in the kitchen and dining room of one home in the Greystone Subdivision before spreading to others, according to Allen. Multiple families were displaced as a result of the fires, Paulding County fire spokesman Lt. Steve Mapes said. “Representatives from the Red Cross established a disaster operation at the neighborhood community center,” Mapes said.  The status of the injured person was unknown. In other news:

What is now being called the “the cruise from hell” led police to “remove a family group of passengers” when they left passengers scared and bloodied. It was reported that 23 members of one family left the 10-day cruise in the South Pacific early because of their behavior. Six men and three teenage boys were removed by police while the other 14 passengers, women and children, followed suit. “This is all over a thong, not a foot, a thong being stepped on and being instantly apologized for. What happened there and then was apologized for,” revealed a family member, who was identified only as Zac. “My nephew was threatened as he was returning a soccer … when four or five blokes walked up to him and said, ‘Don’t worry we’re gonna get ya.'” Videos show men and women engaging in the fight, as well as security kicking the entangled men on the floor. WARNING: The below video may be disturbing to some viewers. The man argued that security on the ship aggravated the situation by following them at “every possible moment.” “The first hit was thrown by security towards, not just my daughter and my sister-in-law, but my wife as well,” he argued. WARNING: The below video may be disturbing to some viewers. “They were looking for trouble from the minute they got on the ship,” a passenger identified as Katie told 3AW. David Barkho told the station that his son called him from the ship after being injured. “He said, ‘Please Dad, please, call the Federal Police,'” the father recalled. “I could hear a lot of screaming, crying in the background.” The cruise line explained its actions in a statement: We asked [New South Wales] Police Marine Area Command to attend Carnival Legend in Eden to remove a family group of passengers from the ship. A video shows that the family remained rowdy even in the removal process. At least one man thought to raise his middle finger toward the cheering onlookers after being loaded onto a separate vessel by authorities. Link to that video can be found here. Carnival initially released the following statement in response to the incident: Safety is the number one priority for Carnival Cruise Line, we take a zero tolerance approach to excessive behaviour that affects other guests and we have acted accordingly on Carnival Legend. The ship’s highly trained security staff have taken strong action in relation to a small group of disruptive guests who have been involved in altercations on board. The ship’s security team is applying our zero tolerance policy in the interests of the safety and comfort of other guests. Carnival Legend is currently on a 10-day South Pacific cruise scheduled to be completed in Melbourne tomorrow where the ship is currently homeported. The cruise has reportedly offered the other passengers a 25 percent refund on their tickets.
  • A Republican state senator who yelled at University of Idaho students affiliated with Planned Parenthood now faces an ethics complaint after he posted on social media Monday that the students should discuss 'killing babies' with his Democratic colleague. A dozen students, who had traveled nearly 300 miles (483 kilometers) from the Moscow campus, were in Boise for a scheduled meeting with Sen. Dan Foreman to lobby for a birth control bill. But Foreman abruptly canceled that morning. The group left a note and condoms in his office before moving onto other scheduled meetings with lawmakers from northern Idaho regions. Later that day, the Republican from Moscow passed the group of students in a hallway and was recorded by several people raising his voice to them. 'Abortion is murder,' Foreman shouts on the video. 'I'm a Roman Catholic and a conservative Republican. I think what you guys are doing stinks.' The students were not at the Capitol to talk about abortion, said Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho public affairs director Paul Dillon. They were present to encourage lawmakers to vote in favor of a bill that would allow women to receive up to a 12-month supply of prescribed birth control and promote better sex education on college campuses. Other meetings students scheduled with state lawmakers were peaceful, Dillon said, even if the lawmakers disagreed with their talking points. Sen. Bob Nonini, a Republican from Coeur d'Alene, waved a rosary while talking to students about abstinence but did not shout or demean them, Dillon said. Dillon described Foreman as 'completely unhinged.' 'Even if you disagree with what we have to say, there's no excuse for that kind behavior,' Dillon said in a phone interview. 'He was being a bully.' Foreman went on Twitter after the hallway tirade and wrote that 'saving the lives of my constituents' was his priority and students should talk about 'killing babies' with Democratic Sen. Maryanne Jordan of Boise. Jordan said she would be filing a complaint against Foreman to Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill. 'It's one thing to disagree with policy, it's another thing to position something like that against another lawmaker,' Jordan said in response to Foreman's tweet Monday. 'This type of behavior is beneath the Idaho Senate.' Ethics complaints against lawmakers are typically anonymous, so while Jordan confirmed she is filing a complaint, she did not disclose many details what would be included in the complaint. The Republican's Twitter account appeared to have been deleted later Monday evening. Foreman did not immediately return a request for comment. This isn't the first time Foreman has been recorded having an outburst. Last year, bodycam video from the Latah County Sheriff's Department showed Foreman swearing and shouting insults with an unseen and unidentified male on Sept. 14 — the first day of the county fair in Moscow. 'Go straight to hell, you son of a bitch,' Foreman can be heard saying in the footage. The deputy then asked Foreman to move along. Foreman has also faced scrutiny over an email response to a constituent's concerns over climate change. Foreman called global warming 'nonsense' and said it was a scam used by left-wing fanatics to raise taxes.
