Montgomery County Police are seeking the public’s assistance in finding a 31-year-old man reported missing after leaving a White Oak hotel on Friday.
NBC 4 reports that Rashawn Williams, who is nonverbal and has Down syndrome, left a Residence Inn in the 12000 block of Plum Orchard Drive in White Oak around 6:20 p.m. Friday. After boarding an R2 Metrobus outside the hotel, Williams has not been seen since.
According to NBC4, Williams and others have been staying with caregivers at the hotel since a fire damaged their Rockville group home.
Williams is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds, MCPD said in a press release. The last time he was seen, he was wearing a blue long-sleeved shirt, blue denim jeans, and black shoes.
Police are asking anyone with information regarding Rashawn Williams’ whereabouts to call (301) 279-8000 (24-hour line). Callers may remain anonymous.
