  • Details of Disappearance
    Olisa was last know to be with her father, Isiah William, on June 1, 1982. According to her mother, Denise Williams, Isiah Williams entered her residence in Cincinnati in May 1982, knocked her down and took their baby.

    Isiah was brought before a judge for violating a restraining order and said he would only reveal what happened to Olisa if the case against him was dismissed. The judge refused and threatened to put Isiah in jail if he didn't cooperate Isiah told the judge the last time he saw Olisa was in June 1982. He admitted he had been smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol while driving around with Olisa. Isiah said he parked his car at Island Park and fell asleep. He said he woke and discovered the car door open and Olisa gone.

    Isiah said in court that he didn't report the abduction to police because he thought his wife or one of her relatives had taken the child.

    Isiah had called his wife on numerous occasions with different versions of what happened. Officers searched the Huron River looking for Olisa, to no avail.

    Investigators at the time believed that he gave the baby to another family member to be raised or that the child was deceased. There was no evidence Isiah was involved in the disappearance of the baby.

    There has been no arrests in the case and Olisa remains missing.
