COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - You've seen them on television and in movies. On Thursday, you'll see Reverend Al Sharpton and actor and activist, Tyler Perry, at a Naples library. The two men will be joined by Ben Jealous, President of the NAACP.

"If they can help in anyway in the discovery of these two fellows that would be fantastic," said Harold Weeks.

Harold Weeks, the President of the Collier chapter, said he has been closely following the disappearance of Felipe Santos and Terrance Williams.

"Eight years has been a long time."

In January 2004, Williams was reportedly having car problems near a North Naples cemetary when Collier County Sheriff Deputy Steve Calkins spotted him. Calkins told officials he took Williams to a nearby convenience store. That was the last time anyone saw the 23 year old.

Harold Weeks believes Thursday's news conferenec will finally exonerate the county for any possible wrongdoing.

"I myself particularly support the Sheriff's department."

Weeks said he believes a reward will be offered tomorrow and is hopeful that it will generate new leads.

"That it will do some good, stir up more interest, the money will bring, you know money talks, it will bring maybe people excited again about looking maybe someplace they haven't looked before," Weeks said.
