WICKSBURG, Ala. (WDHN) — The over one month search for Rikki Williams who has been missing in Houston County has come to a tragic ending — as Houston County Sheriffs found his human remains behind the marathon gas station in Wicksburg.

“A lot of it was decomposed and some was still in tact I would say its probably been out there for at least a month and a couple of weeks,” Sheriff Donald Valenza said.

According to the Houston County Sheriffs, Williams left his home on his red mini bike in Geneva on June 14th but was last seen in the Wicksburg area at Roberts Grocery.

“His last transaction was June 21st at the grocery store. Investigators have several methods on how we can track down missing persons,” He said.

The sheriffs office says that was also the last time he had communication with his wife.

“She knew where he was staying at outside of Houston County we followed up on some leads but she has been instrumental. The last thing we want to do is communicate the bad news to her.

Corporal Barnes says Rikki and his wife were not together at the time — he would often visit western Houston County to find a place to stay whether that’s by the a river or a friends house.

However, Williams found himself at a selected location to reside behind the gas station.

We found the remains of a tent and it was set up but taken down it looks like he was living there for a few days at least,” Cpl. Barnes said.

Although no foul play is suspected in the death of Williams, he did suffer from diabetes and various mental conditions that stemmed from a car crash in the pas — suspecting it played a part in his death.

“One of the medical issues required twice a day and with his every day living and I don’t know if he was getting it twice a day,” Sheriff Valenza said.

The body has been sent to the department of forensics in Montgomery for official identification.
