firstly I do not understand the term "will", then I'm
confused by the term "free". Which, imo, just means that
the "will" is physically "separable", and not entangled
with events which may be remote. Now in a world which seems
to be non deterministic there are strange situations.
A roulette wheel is spun by Carlos. Alice bets on the number six.
Bob is sitting far away and raises his hand while the roulette
is spinning. The number zero comes up. Alice thinks that Bob's
hand and the number zero have something in common.
Of course this example is completely physical (roulette
wheel, hand raising, etc.).

They don't exist in the MWI; they only appear to exist when viewed from the
"frog perspective" of someone embedded in the universal wave function,
rather than the "bird perspective" described by the equations.
