As the fifth anniversary of Felipe Santos' Oct. 14, 2003, disappearance approaches, the Collier County Sheriff's Office is again turning to the community for information on the case.
Santos, 23, was last seen at the Greentree Shopping Center at Airport-Pulling and Immokalee roads. He is a Hispanic man who stands 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair. He lived in Immokalee at the time of his disappearance.
His case is considered to be similar to the case of Terrance Williams, who was 27 when he was last seen Jan. 4, 2004, in the area of 111th Avenue North and Vanderbilt Drive. Williams is a black man, standing 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. He has brown eyes and brown hair. He has a tattoo of a "T" above his left chest, a tattoo of "ET" on his right shoulder, and a tattoo of "Terrance" on his left forearm. His left front tooth is solid gold, and his right front tooth has a gold crown with "T" on it.
Santos and Williams are listed as missing on the Collier County Sheriff's Office Web site. Information and photographs can be found there by going to the "We Can Help" pull-down tab and clicking on "Missing Persons."
Information can also be found on the National Center for Missing Adults Web site (www.theyaremissed.org) Both of these men's cases are open investigations, and the investigators encourage anyone who may have information on either Williams or Santos to contact the Collier County Sheriff's Office at 793-9300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
