Corpus Christi, TX – After a decade and a half, a local man who went missing in 1998 has finally resurfaced. Patrons at a local Mexican restaurant were dumbfounded last Saturday when William Henneberger walked in, and ordered some nachos and a Diet Coke.
Several eyewitnesses were present when William came and watched, as he took shelter at a table near the door.
“He walked right by me,” says Lupe Garcia, “I wasn’t even sure if it was him, I used to know him, but it had been so long. I watched for a minute and once I confirmed it was him, I posted it on Facebook and then called the police.”
The late 90’s disappearance was highly publicized when police first became aware of it, but as is the case with most abductions, after years go by, fewer resources can be devoted and eventually hope fades. William was a promising young man; he disappeared on the Saturday following his High School graduation. Soon after, there were reports that he was spotted attending a nearby college however these have never been confirmed.
Police have released a statement made by William, in which he struggles to articulate the events surrounding his abduction and captivity.
William stated, “I’m not really sure what happened. I was just a teenager skateboarding in a parking lot, and then one day I woke up and I didn’t even know who I was anymore. I was surrounded by these people, who told me they loved me, but I think it was all some sort of trick so I wouldn’t try to run. The conditions under which I was held were deplorable, I was forced to stay in Corpus Christi and only allowed to go outside for a few minutes a day. Sometimes the wi-fi wouldn’t even work.
The statement goes on to say that over the past 15 years, William was subjected to countless hours of bad television and elementary school events. Some of which were just horrendous. He then goes into great detail about the sexual nature of his captivity, during which there was apparently little to no sex.
Not much has been revealed about William’s captors. Initial reports indicate that he was being held by a woman in her mid 30’s, a 7-year-old girl, and a teenage boy who is also named William Henneberger and bares a striking resemblance to his victim.
