NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WOOD) - The task force investigating the disappearance of a Norton Shores mother has been scaled back, according to Norton Shores Police Chief Dan Shaw.
Shaw said that the reduction was due to the lack of tips coming in for Jessica Heeringa, 25, who has been missing for more than a month.
Heeringa went missing on April 26 from the Exxon Mobile gas station on Sternberg Road where she worked in Norton Shores.
Shortly after her disappearance, police announced they were investigating her case as an abduction , because Heeringa left her car, purse and belongings behind at the gas station. The store's cash drawer was open, but no money was stolen, police said.
While police have no suspects in her case, a sketch artist drew up a sketch of a potential suspect. Police also continue to focus on a silver Chrysler Town & Country minivan that was seen driving down Grand Haven Road, which intersects with Sternberg Road, around the time of Heeringa's disappearance.
If you have any information or have seen anything suspicious, call Silent Observer at 231-72-CRIME (27463), 911 or the Norton Shores Police Department at 231.733.2691.
