Neighbor: Police search 2nd property tied to Jessica Heeringa case


DALTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – A neighbor confirms to 24 Hour News 8 that police said they searched another piece of property in Muskegon County in connection to the disappearance of Jessica Heeringa.

24 Hour News 8 witnessed a large police presence Tuesday morning in Dalton Township on Beattie Road between E. Riley-Thompson Road and Bard Road, northeast of Muskegon. Police left the property empty-handed.

Multiple police agencies have not yet confirmed details around the search.

On June 17, Michigan State Police and Norton Shores police searched a different piece of land in Muskegon Township after receiving a tip in the Heeringa case. That search happened near the home of Jeffrey Willis, who is a person of interest in her disappearance. However, investigators came up empty-handed.

Heeringa, then 25, went missing on the night of April 26, 2013 in Norton Shores. She was last seen working at her job at the Exxon Mobil gas station on Sternberg Road and left behind her phone, purse and money.
