Family hopes to find Randall Collins, missing for two months

RICHMOND, Va.- The sun sets on another day and still no answers about the disappearance of Randall Collins.

Listening to his favorite song while holding on to each other and hope, Collins’ family gathered by the canal in Shockoe Bottom Friday night, where the 24-year-old was last seen on April 5th. 

His sister, Deondra Collins tells CBS 6’s Lorenzo Hall, the last time they heard from Randall, he was at the Canal Club and planned on walking home.

However days went by and he never showed up. “I thought maybe he went home with somebody, but four days passed and I got worried,” says Randall’s uncle, Kenneth Collins.

Kenneth was worried because Randall suffers from seizures, which require medication to control.

From there Richmond police began their investigation, by talking to witnesses and even searching the canal where a bloodhound picked up on his scent, but still nothing

Richmond Police Captain, Yvonne Crowder says no new tips have come in since their investigation began and they want to keep the case from going cold.

“It just seems like it’s not news anymore and we want to get it back out there,” says Capt. Crowder.

His family tells Hall they want the same and are simply looking for closure. “I just want the world to be more aware. Anywhere, anything can help. The smallest thing could help,” says Deondra.

Randall Collins is described as a black male, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds. He has a tattoo on his right arm that reads “Randall.”
