Atx X was climbing out on arwys when he reported a near miss with unidented aircraft Y. The pilot did not say if he took any evasive action. At this same time, I was working other traffic inbound to the airport as well as identing a call up south of the airport. After the incident was reported, the unidented aircraft appeared to be changing altitudes as if to be flying above or below clouds. Additionally, when the pilot reported the incident, I then observed the traffic a mi to the left of atx X at about the same altitude flying same direction.
