The song 'Gone Missing' by Jamaal Williams or J-Willz was released this week and now has more than 6,000 views on YouTube.

The song talks not only about the search for Alexis Murphy but also for Dashad Smith, who was last seen in November, and for Faye Tinsley, whose murder remains unsolved.

Williams said he wanted to express his feelings about something so tragic happening in the area and he talks about his own struggles, too.

"People know that she's out missing. Somebody knows where she's at it's just a matter of someone stepping up and I feel like it's soon you know. I just needed to speak on it and let it all out," Williams said, who is performing Friday night in Charlottesville.

Williams says the song will be available on iTunes tomorrow and says he will create a fund from the profits to give to the person who steps forward and tells authorities where Alexis is.
