GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Grand Rapids police would like to get more information from two people who provided anonymous tips in the case of a missing mother of five.
Latrice Maze, 26, was last seen in downtown Grand Rapids on March 19. Her family has said she has never left without a phone call to someone to check in.
On March 30 and 31, according to the Grand Rapids Police Department, two separate tipsters called Silent Observer with information about Maze's disappearance.
Those tips in particular are piqued the interest of GRPD investigators. Detectives won't discuss specifics of the tips.
They say neither involved a sighting or specific information on the whereabouts of Maze. But the information may help provide evidence as the missing person cases moves forward.
Meantime, Maze's family refuses to give up hope.
"It's just a struggle for us," Latrice Maze's cousin Pam Green said.
They've held a vigil, put up fliers with her picture and continue knocking on doors in and around Burton and Division in Grand Rapids, where Maze was last seen.
"It's been very difficult for the family. We're just... Each day that goes by we have no answers.We want to know where she is."
From everything police have learned from family and friends, it's not like the mother of five to just disappear, not to check in with someone if she had to be gone.
Maze failed to show up for an appointment involving a daughter in foster care on the 19th. Police were called the next day after she didn't pick up one of her children from school.
As days turn into weeks investigators grow more and more concerned.
And so do family and friends.
"We're just keeping hope that she's still alive... and that she'll come back to us," Green said.
Maze was last seen wearing a white shirt, black slacks, and a blue and yellow scarf wrapped around her head.
The tipsters who called Silent Observer are now asked to call GRPD at 616.456.3604. They may also call Silent Observer at 616.774.2345 and provide information for police to contact them.
It might be December but that is not stopping some people from "hanging 10" in Michigan.
