Former Gypsy Joker chief missing

Adelaide police are trying to find the former president of the Gypsy Jokers motorcycle club, who has been missing for several days.

Steve Williams was last seen at the Gepps Cross Hotel on Tuesday afternoon.

Detectives are examining his car, which was left at the hotel.

Senior Constable Colin Haigh is urging anyone with information to come forward.

"He has not contacted family since, which is out of character for him," he said.

Police are asking anyone who has information about the man's whereabouts to contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.



THE heartbroken teenage daughter of missing former Gypsy Jokers bikies boss Steve Williams wants her dad to return home for his birthday this week.

Blayze Williams, 13, said yesterday she did not know where he was but did not want to face the prospect that she may never see him again.

Her only wish was that he be with the family for his 39th birthday on Wednesday.

"We need him back," she said at her mother's northern suburbs home yesterday. "We want him back for his birthday.

"I was supposed to stay over at his place (in the city) that night to give him his presents.

"It would be mine and his birthday wish that we could spend it together again."

Mr Williams, 38, has not been seen since Tuesday when his boss dropped him at the Gepps Cross Hotel at 2.30pm. His white Ford Falcon was later found abandoned in the hotel car park.

It is unknown why the car was parked at the hotel or how it came to be there.

Mr Williams has not been answering his mobile phone or made contact with relatives, which has been described as out of character.

He resigned as president of the Gypsy Jokers club about 14 months ago.

He recently criticised the SA Police anti-bikie taskforce Avatar following the clash between the Hells Angels and Rebels bikie clubs – in which shots were fired – at an Adelaide Dance Music Awards night.

Blayze last saw her dad on Monday after spending the Queen's Birthday long weekend with him "hanging out", watching movies and taking "a few drives".

He was due to pick up his girlfriend, Alena Skipper, and then deliver a laptop computer to Blayze on Tuesday. He never turned up.

Blayze said his disappearance had been particularly hard to deal with because she spoke to him every day.

"I'm sort of in shock," she said while being comforted by her mother, Kim Asling. "It still doesn't feel like it's happened. I still think I'm going to wake up but I'm not.

"Even if anyone sees him, can they just report it? Even if they make it anonymous, it might help."

Blayze and Ms Asling, Mr Williams' former partner, were interviewed by detectives yesterday.

"People might just think `another biker' but they don't associate him as a family man – and he was a good family man," Ms Asling said.

"He was a good man and a good dad."

Police say that at this stage the inquiry is being dealt with by Holden Hill CIB as a missing persons investigation.

"Given his history police are clearly concerned for his welfare and safety," Chief Inspector Peter Graham said.

"But in the absence of any information to the contrary, it is being treated as a missing persons inquiry.

"Holden Hill CIB, who are conducting the investigation, have liaised with the Avatar taskforce. Avatar have been consulted because of their knowledge of Mr Williams' association with motorcycle gangs."

Mr Williams' white Ford Falcon remains at the Holden Hill police station compound. The lock on the boot appears to have been forced open. A sign on the car says: "Do not touch for forensic examination." A police spokesman said the vehicle would be forensically tested tomorrow.

Blayze said her father's disappearance was out of character.

"He always called to say he couldn't make it, he can't come out," she said.

"He is the best. We always did stuff together and he loves it when I come over."

Blayze, a keen horse rider, said she had been spending more time with Mr Williams' favourite horse, Homer, named after his favourite TV character in the TV show, The Simpsons.

"When dad would come to (horse) shows he always cuddled him and would give him a kiss," she said. "They had a bond."

Staff at the Gepps Cross Hotel yesterday declined to comment on Mr Williams' disappearance, citing "hotel policy".

At Mr Williams' former bikie club HQ at Wingfield, a club member asked a Sunday Mail reporter to leave.

Mr Williams is 185cm tall, about 100kg and of muscular build with long brown hair, normally pulled back into a ponytail.

He has a light brown moustache and goatee beard with numerous tattoos on his upper body and upper arms.

Anyone with information is urged to call BankSA CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000. Police say all information will be treated in confidence.

Outspoken former bikie boss vanishes


FORMER Gypsy Jokers Motorcycle Club president Steven Williams has disappeared and police have not ruled out foul play.

The 38-year-old was last seen on Tuesday afternoon at the Gepps Cross Hotel.

His car was found abandoned in the hotel's car park.

Mr Williams has not contacted his family, which police say is out of character. Police are investigating his disappearance and have impounded his car for forensic testing.

Mr Williams stood down as president of the Gypsy Jokers last year.

Just last week he spoke to The Advertiser about problems with SA Police's bikie unit, Avatar. "If Avatar didn't know the Hells Angels and Rebels are in the same place when alcohol is being consumed and there's a fair chance something will happen, their intelligence isn't very good," he said.

It is believed many bikies were angered by his comments.

Mr Williams is described as 185cm tall, 100kg with a medium build.

He has short brown hair which is usually pushed back into a ponytail and a light brown moustache and goatee. He has many tattoos.

Anyone with information about his disappearance is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Missing bikie: hunt for suspect


POLICE are hunting a possible suspect over the disappearance of former Gypsy Jokers motorcycle club boss Steve Williams.

They are following information he may have been the victim of foul play.

The Advertiser understands police interviewed a Woodville West man on Saturday after he told police an associate had confessed to killing Mr Williams.

Police sources said the man was "convinced" the information and identity he provided were genuine.

Several patrols yesterday visited an Osborne address to speak to a possible suspect but no one was at home at the time.

Mr Williams' early model white Ford Falcon will be forensically tested today.

It was abandoned at the Gepps Cross Hotel where Mr Williams was last seen about 2.30pm on Tuesday. He was reported missing about 3pm on Thursday by partner Alena Skipper after he failed to contact her and missed a visit with his teenage daughter Blayze, to whom he spoke on a daily basis.

Blayze, 13, at the weekend made an impassioned plea for anyone who might have seen her father to contact police. "If anyone sees him, can they just report it? Even if they make it anonymous. It might help," she said.

Mr Williams, who turns 39 on Wednesday, is renowned for speaking out against police and government in defence of motorcycle clubs. That is a move not supported by many in the biker fraternity used to dealing with issues behind club doors and with a code of silence.

Mr Williams is embroiled in a legal battle with members of the police STAR Group. They are suing him for damages for injuries they claim to have sustained in the Beachport brawl in the 2001 Gypsy Jokers' club run.

Holden Hill CIB is investigating various leads. Detectives have spoken with friends and family of Mr Williams.

Police say until there is evidence to the contrary, the investigation will continue on the basis Mr Williams is a missing person. He is described as being 185cm tall, weighing about 100kg and of medium build.

He has long brown hair, usually worn back in a ponytail, a light brown moustache and a goatee beard. He has numerous tattoos.

Police fear for missing bikie
June 21, 2005
From: AAP

THE disappearance of an Adelaide bikie has been declared a major crime but detectives are calling on him to contact police if he is safe and well.

Steven Williams, once the leader of the Gypsy Joker gang in South Australia, has not been seen since Tuesday last week when he was dropped off at a suburban hotel.
His car was later found in the hotel car park.

He was reported missing by his family on Thursday and police said today it was out of character for the 38-year-old to go so long without contacting relatives.

"We appreciate he has only been missing for a short period of time but due to family concerns his disappearance has been declared a major crime," said Detective Superintendent Peter Woite.

"We are erring on the side of caution and we would ask Mr Williams to contact us if he is safe and well."

Often outspoken in the defence of motorcycle clubs, Mr Williams was last year ousted as the leader of the Gypsy Jokers and later handed in his club colours.

He is about 185 centimetres tall, weighs about 100 kilograms and has his brown hair pushed back and worn in a pony tail.

He has numerous tattoos on his upper arms and chest.

Blayze's plea to find bikie dad Steve Williams

THE daughter of missing Gypsy Joker boss Steve Williams is still seeking answers, five years after his disappearance.

Fiona McWhirter
Sunday Mail (SA)

HE was the heavily tattooed, no-nonsense tough guy - but nothing could mask the love he had for his little girl.

With piercing blue eyes, scowling brow and slicked-back ponytail, Steve Williams was the face of the bikie world in Adelaide.

Until he mysteriously disappeared without trace.

Now, five years later, the family of the former Gypsy Jokers boss is still seeking answers about what happened to him.

A desperate Blayze Williams spoke out yesterday on the eve of the fifth anniversary of her father's disappearance in the hope her "best friend" could finally be laid to rest.

"Even if someone murdered him and if we never found the person responsible but we found his (dad's) body, I would rather find him," she said.

"If we never knew who did it, that wouldn't matter to me as much as just having him back with us."

The 18-year-old said she tried to stay strong for the sake of her family when Mr Williams, then 38, went missing after his boss dropped him at the Gepps Cross Hotel on June 14, 2005.

His white Ford Falcon was later found abandoned in the hotel car park.

But now Blayze's strong veneer is starting to break down; she admits to becoming frequently angry and getting easily upset.

She recently broke down in tears while driving when The Who's Behind Blue Eyes came on the radio, because it reminded her of her dad who "seemed all tough but had a lot of stuff going on in his head". "As time goes on I'm actually getting worse, not better," Blayze said.

"I think because I blocked it out so much when it first happened, I tried to stay strong for everyone else.

" I tried to keep everything the same. My family got pretty upset, though.

"I thought 'I'll stay strong for them'. It sort of backfired for me because I didn't give any time to myself to grieve."

Over the years, Mr Williams has missed some of his horse-riding champion daughter's major milestones, including her winning national titles and an international Rookie of the Year award.

"Whenever something big happens in my life, like winning something or anything I know he would have enjoyed, instead of it just being a happy point for me, it's also hard as well.

"He would have always loved to have been at my school graduation; he would have loved to try to scare off my first proper boyfriend."

Blayze said she became hysterical when mum Kim Asling presented her with a gold locket on her 16th birthday.

Mr Williams had bought the necklace and placed photos of himself and Kim inside it just after their daughter was born before hiding it away to offer as a gift 16 years later.

Blayze, of Kudla, will light a candle tomorrow to mark her dad's birthday this week.

Janice Hutchin reveals theory about what happened to her bikie son, Steve Williams

THE mother of a former president of a bikie gang who disappeared has revealed her explosive theory about why her son vanished.

JULY 3, 201710:20AM Advertiser

THE mother of a former Gypsy Jokers president who disappeared has revealed an explosive theory about why he may have vanished.

Steven Williams vanished just over 12 years ago after being dropped at a Gillman trucking company in northwest Adelaide, owned by a senior member of the Finks bikie group.

Police believe he was murdered but a motive was never established and mystery still surrounds the disappearance.

Speaking to Nine News, his mother Janice Hutchin revealed his last days before he vanished and believes he knew about a dark secret about somebody of importance in South Australia.

“He said to me, ‘mum I know something about somebody’,” she said.

“He sort of hinted that it was someone high up ... it could have been a police person, (or) it could have been a politician.

“I’ve got a feeling ... he was going to tell the media what he knew about this person and two weeks later, he’s gone.”

Ms Hutchin told Nine News she noticed a stranger staring at her son while they were having lunch in the weeks leading up to his disappearance.

“It was just a very odd thing to see. You don’t usually see people hanging around watching people across the road,” she said.

Before he vanished, Mr Williams had left the bikie club because of his daughter Blayze.

Ms Hutchin does not believe those responsible for her son’s disappearance were bikies, and said the only way they would have been involved was if they were hired by somebody else.

In the 12 years since his disappearance there have been suggestions Mr Williams was put in a fridge and dumped at sea, put in a hammer mill and fed to the pigs or thrown in an old car that went through the wrecker.

Ms Hutchin told The Advertiser she last saw her son on June 14, 2005, the same day he disappeared.

He went to her home to have a coffee, as he’d often done, but she said this particular day he was acting strangely.

“He was a little bit different. He wasn’t concentrating on the visit,” she said.

“He got a phone call — I’m assuming from his boss — and said he was going to the hotel at Gepps Cross.

“I think I’m the last one in the family to get a big hug from him. I can still feel it.”

Mr Williams was also a debt collector and it is believed he may have been dropped at the Singleton’s Transport trucking company to retrieve some money.

Mr Williams was just 38 when he disappeared and his body has never been found.

His mother has held on to hope he could still be alive but now believes he was killed.

Case officer Detective Sergeant Paul Ward told The Advertiser there was no clear motive, but it is believed Mr Williams had started writing a book since leaving the bikie club.

“There had been some speculation among gang members that Williams was in the process of writing a book about his life and activities,” he said.

“It appears that within the outlaw motorcycle gangs community they were not too happy with that. That probably started a number of issues that Steve had. But it may be as simple as someone he was collecting money from.”

It is now 15 years since Steven Williams disappeared without a trace.

He was last seen at the Gepps Cross Hotel at 2.30pm on 14 June 2005. His white Ford Falcon was later found abandoned in the hotel car park.

The 38-year old was reported missing on 16 June 2005 by his girlfriend.

On Thursday 6th October 2005, a call was made to Crime Stoppers which led police to searching premises of a trucking company at Gillman.

It is believed that Mr Williams, a debt collector, was dropped at  Gillman by an associate – most likely to collect money from someone who worked there.

It is likely his body was removed from the business in the rear of a white utility – covered by a tarpaulin – seen parked in a street adjacent to the property later the same day.

Despite extensive searches of land surrounding the relatively isolated industrial precinct and further north at Port Gawler and Middle Beach, no trace of him has ever been found.

While police had not established a definite motive, it was likely Williams was either murdered by enemies within the bikie community or because of a book he was writing at the time.

Mr Williams was formerly a member and President of the Gypsy Jokers MC and was involved in the debt collection business.

While many potential witnesses have declined to co-operate, information has been flowing to police over the past decade about the circumstances of his disappearance.

A reward of up to $200,000 is on offer for information that leads to a conviction in this case and/or the recovery of the victim’s remains.

If you have information, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go to

You don’t have to say who you are or get any further involved.


Blayze Williams speaks 15 years after the disappearance of her bikie boss dad Steve Williams

Fifteen years after the disappearance of her dad, notorious bikie Steve Williams, Blayze Williams speaks about the pain of still not knowing and how she’s helping other families of missing persons.

Dixie Sulda
Sunday Mail (SA)

Fifteen years after her father disappeared, Blayze Williams is still tormented by how Steve Williams may have been murdered.

The 28-year-old daughter of notorious former Gypsy Joker boss Steve Williams, said she thought at least once a day about the way her father might have been killed.

“People don’t realise that the family (of murder victims) think of them every single day for the rest of their lives, at least once a day, and imagine exactly what happened to their loved ones,” Ms Williams said.

She simply wants to know what happened to her dad, locate his remains and lay him to rest so her family can finally have closure.

Her father was one of the most prominent bikers in Adelaide until the then 38-year-old went missing, after his boss dropped him at the Gepps Cross Hotel on June 14, 2005.

His white Ford Falcon was later found abandoned in the hotel car park.

Police believe he was murdered at a Gillman trucking company and his body was likely removed from the business, covered in a tarpaulin in the rear of a white utility.

Investigations continue into the motive for his murder but police say he was either murdered by enemies in the bikie community or because of a book he was writing at the time.

Ms Williams is now living in Kudla, south of Gawler, and works as a truck driver and social media influencer. She wants to use her social media platform to help others dealing with similar trauma.

Ms Williams has started to use her YouTube channel to post videos, sharing her experience and answering questions from people struggling with the loss of a family member.

“I thought maybe if I do a channel and explain more, it might help just one or two other people feel a bit more at ease with what they’re going through,” she said.

Ms Williams said families of missing and murdered people faced ongoing battles.

“It’s not something you can move past, it’s just always going to affect you,” she said.

One of the struggles Ms Williams hopes to discuss in her upcoming videos is the effect messages from strangers have on her ongoing recovery.

“I have people message me all the time with crazy scenarios of what they think could’ve happened to him (Mr Williams),” she said.

“People don’t realise, if they give me a scenario to picture, even though it’s not true, the rest of that day all I’m thinking about is my dad being chainsawed into pieces.”

Ms Williams also talks of the anxiety and constant need to have her phone on her at all times.

“I have so many friends that couldn’t get their head around how ridiculously invested I was with having my phone near me all the time,” she said.

“You’re always waiting for a call. If I missed a private number phone call I’d freak out thinking I’d lost any chance of getting a hold of Dad.”

Ms Williams is almost certain she knows the person responsible for her father’s death, but said finding closure was more important than an arrest.

“You’ve got an anniversary but you’ve got nowhere to go for it, nothing to do for it … you’ve got this date that just messes your whole head up,” she said. “If I got a choice between having a body or having a conviction, I’d pick the body.”

Ms Williams encourages anyone with questions about her story or recovery to send her a message on Facebook: @blayzewilliams.

Her videos will be posted on her YouTube channel: blayzewilliams
