PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities are asking for the public’s help finding a missing Plainfield Township woman.
Mollie Schmidt, 33, was last seen on Aug. 21 at her home near the intersection of East Beltline and 5 Mile Road NE. She is described as being around 5-foot-2 and 100 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes.
The Kent County Sheriff’s Office said Schmidt left behind her children at her home, which is uncharacteristic behavior.
She may be with Yenly Garcia, 44, of Wyoming, according to the sheriff’s office.
Michigan State Police records show Garcia has a criminal history dating back to 2004 that includes convictions for drugs, domestic violence, larceny and retail fraud. In a 2008 case out of Grand Rapids, he was initially charged with kidnapping and pleaded down to unlawful imprisonment. He was also convicted of assault with a dangerous weapon in that case.
Anyone with information about where Schmidt may be is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 616.632.6125 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.
