MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A City Watch alert is in effect for a 16-year-old girl who is believed to be with a 56-year-old man.

Memphis Police Department says Denisha Wilson, who is currently in the custody of the Department of Children Services, was reported missing Tuesday night around 11:47 p.m.

The complainant, a DCS caseworker, who reported her missing believes she is with Tony Williams who Denisha is known to communicate with. Williams was last at Baptist Children’s Hospital in an old-style silver Infiniti sedan.

According to an incident report, DCS says Denisha does not have known family members in Memphis and her mother is currently living in Texas.

Denisha has a mental disorder and is not on her medication, according to MPD.

The incident report says Wilson is also bipolar and has a history of drug use, repeat runaway incidents, sex trafficking and a recent drug overdose on Sept. 18.

She is described as a Black female, 5 feet, 4 inches tall, 120 lbs, dark complexion, brown eyes with red hair. She was last seen at an “unsecured facility” on S. Main Street wearing a blue shirt, black leggings and black shoes.

Williams is described as a Black male, 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs 180 lbs.

Though Williams drives an Infiniti, MPD believes he may be in a blue or white Lexus GX470 with Tennessee tag BJL1340.
