Police in Richmond, Va. are asking for help in finding a man who recently moved there from North Carolina.

Detectives say Matthew Williams, 23, has gone missing under suspicious circumstances.

Williams had recently moved to Richmond from Four Oaks, N.C. in Johnston County and was a recent Campbell University graduate.
