Rev. Al Sharpton comforts the unidentified man.)"// NOTE: 2 seconds of black between bites"Wow. I have been praying for an answer for this family and I wasn't expecting this moment. I am beyond overwhelmed by it. And just like this man has come forward, I am sure there are others. You do not have to be afraid. The sheriff here has assured me that he will safe and anyone else that wants to say anything or speak out about this will be safe." 2. Ben Jealous/NAACP President"The only way to turn a cold case into a live case is to turn up the heat. The NAACP does not forget about Mr. Santos, Mr. Williams, about this officer that remains of interest. And the NAACP supports this family and Mr. Perry and the Sheriff's Office and their commitment to turn up the heat."STORYLINE:Filmmaker Tyler Perry is offering a $100,000 reward for information in the decade-old case of two men who went missing after separate encounters with a sheriff's deputy in southwestern Florida.Perry joined the Rev. Al Sharpton and Ben Jealous of the NAACP at a news conference Thursday in Naples to discuss the missing-person investigations of Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos. Santos and Williams disappeared three months apart in the Naples area in 2003 after crossing paths with Collier County Sheriff's Deputy Steven Calkins. He was never charged but was fired the next year. Perry said the media was not paying enough attention to missing-person cases involving minorities. Williams was black and Santos was an illegal immigrant from Mexico. When he announced the reward, a man stepped from the front of the crowd to tell Perry something, indicating he had information to offer. "Just like this man has come forward, I am sure there are others," Perry said. "You are being watched around the world and you are safe." Investigations by local, state and federal authorities went nowhere. Calkins, who is white, denied doing anything more than dropping off the young men at different convenience stores. He was never charged but was fired after he stopped cooperating with investigators. Don Hunter, the Collier County sheriff at the time, said Calkins' patrol car was tested for blood and signs of a struggle, but nothing was found.The former sheriff noted that both men would have had some reason to disappear _ Santos was in the country illegally, and Williams was due back in court in Tennessee, where he was facing jail time for failure to pay child support.
