A Charlottesville artist is reaching out to aid in the search for missing Nelson County teenager Alexis Murphy. Jamaal Williams, or J-Willz, wrote a song called "Gone Missing."

In the song, he raps about finding the missing teenager and bringing her back home. Williams says this is affecting the whole community and he wants to show the family his support. 

"I just want it to get to her family and let them know that we're out here supporting and we care. That's all, that's my whole goal behind it," said Williams.

His song also talks references two other cases out of Charlottesville. Police are still investigating the disappearance of DaShad Smith - who was last seen in November of last year -  and the murder of Faye Tinsley in July of 2012.
