Normal Two Months Later

Post by raine1953 on Sat Jun 22, 2013 2:03 pm

“Isn’t that heartbreaking?” asked the boy’s great-grandmother, Diane Homrich.
It’s been nearly two months since Jessica Heeringa, 25, was abducted from a Norton Shores gas station and convenience store where she worked. She remains missing.
“They talked to a counselor and decided they needed to tell him something,” Homrich said of Zevyn. “They told him his mommy is lost. That is something he can understand.”
Massive police efforts have gone into the investigation and search for Heeringa, including a multi-agency task force. Norton Shores Police Chief Dan Shaw said that task force has since been downsized, but he still has four full-time officers working exclusively on the case.
“It’s a high-priority case for us,” he said.
Shaw said the department receives 10-15 Silent Observer tips each day, but only a handful of those receive priority treatment. Many of the calls are about rumors, he said, and some are about people they’ve already investigated for the case.
The Silent Observer reward is at more than $16,000, the chief said.
Police are still looking for a silver Chrysler Town and Country van that was seen in the area on the night of April 26 when Heeringa was abducted. A drawing of the man believed to be driving the van has been widely circulated, but the suspect has yet to be identified, Shaw said.
“We have lots of names, but we still don’t know who he is,” the chief said.
Shaw said he is convinced that somebody knows Heeringa's whereabouts, but he or she is not talking.
Shaw also believes Heeringa is still in the area, and the missing woman's grandmother still hopes she will be found alive.
“I still think she’s in the area someplace," Diane Homrich said. "Maybe that’s what keeps me going back out there (to the command center in the strip mall next to the gas station)."
The command center was set up in the parking lot at The Pointes shopping center for several weeks after Heeringa disappeared. It’s now manned only on Fridays.
Homrich said she and her husband, Roman, are planning to man the command center for a few more Fridays.
“After that, I’m not sure,” she said. “Every week, there’s less and less people. ... The rest of the family had to go back to work."
People have been stopping by the center to pick up fliers for distribution, make donations and show support.
“The community out there has been so supportive and nice,” Homrich said. “That’s what keeps me coming back. They stop by and give me hugs and say a prayer.”
Heeringa’s sister, Angel Allred, frets about the lack of anything new in the case.
“I feel pretty helpless,” she said during a fundraiser for the Heeringa family on Wednesday night at Buffalo Wild Wings near The Lakes Mall. “I don’t know what to do or where to turn.”
Allred said she wonders every day what her sister is going through.
“I’m hoping she’s staying strong,” she said.
Anyone with information on the case is urged to call Silent Observer at 231-72-CRIME or the Norton Shores Police Department at 231-733-2691.
Donations to the reward fund may be made at the Norton Shores Police Department or the Community Foundation of Muskegon County. Funds to help the family may be donated at PNC banks.

Jessica Heeringa's fiancé: "We need her home"
5:30 PM, Jun 27, 2013   |   0  comments


  • Dakota Quail-Dyer, Jessica Heeringa's fiancé. (June 27, 2013)
  • Dakota Quail-Dyer, Jessica Heeringa's fiancé. (June 27, 2013)
  • Zevyn Quail-Dyer, Jessica Heeringa's son. (June 27, 2013)

NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WZZM) -- It has been just over two months since Jessica Heeringa was last seen. She vanished late on the night of April 26 at the Exxon gas station on Sternberg Road where she worked.
On April 29, police released surveillance video of the van seen at the time of her alleged kidnapping. The next day police released a sketch of the man believed to have kidnapped her. On May 3, police searched Muskegon State park, but found nothing.
Since WZZM 13's update on the story, including our own investigation over a week ago, there still have been no new leads. 

RELATEDPrivate investigator reveals clues in Heeringa case  

In the meantime, friends and family, including Jessica's three-year-old son, Zevyn and fiancé Dakota Quail-Dyer, continue to wait for any answers in the mysterious disappearance.
"Just let her go, we need her home, her son needs her home... It's never too late to do the right thing," says Dakota.
It's a plea from with a hint of desperation after two months of waiting. Waiting for even the smallest break in the mysterious disappearance of a loved one and a mother.
But here are just no answers. 

Although the story is fading in the public's mind, it is the only thing on Dakota's mind. He believes the abductor was someone Jessica knew.

"It was very quick, her being outside. Not sure what happened, it's just a feeling I have."
Dakota says he still feels in the dark with all theories he hears from people in the community, although he does speak with investigators regularly.
"I talk to the police about twice a week, at least. We're pretty much on the understanding that they won't tell me anything until they have something," says Dakota.
Also left to wonder three-year-old Zevyn.
"He asks questions everyday-- everywhere we go he asks questions. Is mom here? Constantly looking for her asking if she's there," says Dakota.
If anything good has come of this, Dakota says it has revived his faith in the community. But he wants them not to give up until it's over
"Thank you for everything and just stay on top of the tips and keep your ear to the ground. If you hear unusual things, report it.
Dakota also had words for Jessica. "We love you baby and we're here, waiting for you to come home."
Family and friends of Jessica Heeringa keep hoping for the best. The flyers with her picture on them are still up. Police say they continue to follow up all tips.

Normal Jessica Heeringa's fiance on the couples' young son : 'I don't ever want him to forget his mother'

Post by raine1953 on Sat Aug 10, 2013 3:11 am

MUSKEGON, MI – Her address hasn’t changed. Her cell phone number and her fiance's Facebook page information remains the same. Her son sleeps under the same roof he had before her disappearance.

Jessica Heeringa’s life will be just as she left it when she’s returned to her family, said Dakotah Quail-Dyer, the fiancé of the missing 26-year-old gas station clerk who apparently disappeared on April 26.

Quail-Dyer said he strongly believes Heeringa is alive and will keep things in order for when she’s returned.

It isn't about "if" she comes home, it's about "when," he says.

“I’m working on trying to keep the house. I’m trying to keep the phone on in case she calls. This is the only number she knows. I’m just struggling to keep everything working,” he said.

He remains at the same rental home in Muskegon that they lived in before Heeringa disappeared.

He’s since got a job at a local Muskegon restaurant as a cook in an effort to supplement the income the family once had from Heeringa’s job as a gas station clerk.

Sunday, Aug. 4, marked the 100th day that the petite, blonde Muskegon gas station clerk disappeared, allegedly abducted while finishing her night shift at the Norton Shores  Exxon gas station on Sternberg Road.

The couples' 3½-year-old son, Zevyn, stays with Quail-Dyer, but his parents help him out with child care while he's at work.

Quail-Dyer said he doesn’t hear from Heeringa’s side of the family and has relied on the support and generosity of close friends to keep the wheels turning at home.

As a father, Quail-Dyer said it’s important that he keeps Heeringa’s memory alive in the mind of their young son.

“I don’t keep her off his mind. Every night he goes to bed I tell him that his mommy loves him. I tell him that she wants to be home but she can’t. I don’t ever want him to forget his mother,” he said.

“We say she’s lost. He knows that somebody took her. He told me the other day that he’s going to get bigger and take care of the bad guys.”

Authorities said last week that the investigation remains a priority for the Norton Shores Police Department. However solid leads haven’t trickled into the department in a while and as of Aug. 6 a suspect or suspects hadn’t yet been identified, and Heeringa remained missing.

Quail-Dyer said he’s just waiting for new information to come in.

“I don’t hear a single thing from police. I haven’t talked to the lead detective in about a month, but it’s pretty much the same stuff (that police have been working on since she disappeared),” he said.

Quail-Dyer said he doesn’t have a “gut feeling” one way or another on what could have happened to his fiancé.

But if pressed, he said he believes she could have been taken out of the area for sex trafficking.

“I think she’s alive. I just don’t feel like she’s gone,” he said.

Authorities haven’t publicly discussed theories on her disappearance, but have said they don’t have any evidence to indicate she’s deceased at this point.

Anyone with tips in Heeringa's disappearance is asked to contact Silent Observer at 231-72-CRIME (231-722-7463), or the Norton Shores Police Department at 231-733-2691.

A $15,000 reward is being offered for information that would lead to the arrest and conviction of those involved in Heeringa’s disappearance.

Heeringa is described as a white female, 5 feet 1 inch tall, about 110 pounds, with blond, shoulder-length hair and blue eyes. Heeringa is also known to wear wire-rim glasses. She was last wearing a blue collared shirt with "Sternberg Exxon" on it, the police chief has said.

Authorities said a witness saw a silver minivan -- possibly a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country -- in the area around the time she was reported missing.

Authorities describe the driver of that vehicle as a 6-foot-tall white man who appears to be 30 to 40 years old. He has medium to heavy build with broad shoulders, light brown or sandy blond, wavy hair with a part in the middle with hair slightly longer on top.

NORTON SHORES, Mich. (Feb. 24, 2014) – The same plea has been sent out for nearly 10 months: “Bring Jessica Heeringa home.”

The young mother who police believe was abducted from work is still missing.

Although out of the spotlight, Jessica Heeringa is still fresh on a lot of people’s minds.

“We`re just hoping and hoping, and it’s just a nightmare. Nothing prepares a family for this.” Jessica’s grandma Diane Homrich said.

The case has been a dead-end, from the surveillance video showing a silver van possibly involved in her abduction to the sketch from witness descriptions of the man behind the wheel. Jessica’s purse and money were left behind, and police found drops of her blood behind the gas station where police believe she was abducted.

“We don’t have the information we need to find Jessica or find her abductor and bring them to justice at this point,” Norton Shores Police Chief Daniel Shaw said.

But that’s not good enough for the family of the now 26-year-old mother. “We hope and we have hoped for several months now that Norton Shores would turn it over to the Michigan State Police,” Homrich said.

Chief Shaw said the tasks force investigating Jessica’s disappearance, including members of the Michigan State Police, still keeps in contact, meeting every few months. “We discuss the case with other jurisdictions to see if there`s connections with any of their open cases, or similar cases that they may have had whether it be an abduction or a rape type case,” Shaw said.

Detective Sgt. Mike Kasher of the Norton Shores Police Department has been exclusively working the case every day since Jessica was abducted.

Both family and police believe those involved in the disappearance are from the Norton Shores area, that’s why their focus has remains the area around the gas station where Heeringa worked.

The Heeringa family says they’ve hired a private investigator with money raised at various fundraisers.

Jessica’s 4-year-old son, Zeven, is no longer in contact with her family. “That just breaks my heart because he’s such a cute little guy and of course he`s our one connection left for Jessie and vice versa,” Homrich said.

But, as leads grow cold and months go by, Jessica’s family, police and the thousands who support the search online refuse to give up hope.

Anyone with information on the disappearance of Jessica Heeringa should call Silent Observer at (231) 72-CRIME.

Jessica Heeringa: 5 myths about her bizarre, yearlong disappearance

on March 24, 2014 at 6:43 AM, updated March 24, 2014 at 8:57 AM

NORTON SHORES, MI -- The rumors have been swirling in the Muskegon County community since the day of Jessica Heeringa’s disappearance nearly a year ago.

And police say there have been countless theories about her disappearance on April 26, 2013 and whispers of her alleged lifestyle.

Now Norton Shores Police Chief Dan Shaw is eager to dispel some of those myths so the community can hopefully focus on the facts – not second-hand stories and hearsay – and concentrate on finding the young mother.

Heeringa, 26, has been missing since April 26, 2013 after she was allegedly abducted while finishing her shift as a night clerk at the Sternberg Road Exxon gas station in Norton Shores, shortly before 11 p.m.

Here are five myths about the investigation:

Myth No. 1: A witness saw Jessica being abducted.

Not true, police say.

Shaw said no one so far has come forward stating they witnessed an abduction of Heeringa. However, someone had reported seeing a suspicious van in the area.

“The witness who observed the silver mini-van and its driver did not see Jessica at any time. The witness was not aware of Jessica’s abduction until officers began their initial investigation, therefore, had no reason to believe the van was involved in a crime or to take additional actions, like call 911," Shaw said.

“It is still unknown for certain that the silver Chrysler Town and Country mini-van is involved. However, based on the fact the driver has not been identified and the van’s departure from the Exxon store is within the timeline of Jessica’s disappearance, investigators still believe it may be involved.”

Authorities describe the driver of that vehicle as a 6-foot-tall white man who appears to be 30 to 40 years old. He has a medium to heavy build with broad shoulders, light brown or sandy blond, wavy hair with a part in the middle with hair slightly longer on top.

Myth No. 2: Jessica’s abduction was faked, she wanted to disappear.

That’s very unlikely, police said.

“Based on evidence obtained at the scene, including Jessica’s blood from the pavement outside of the store, the fact that hundreds of dollars in cash (both Jessica’s and the store’s) was left behind and based on behavioral information we have developed during the investigation, it is highly unlikely that she is intentionally missing,” Shaw said.

“The evidence obtained during the initial investigation led investigators to believe that Jessica was indeed abducted, which is why the task force was convened so quickly. We are still operating under the belief that Jessica was abducted against her will, possibly by a person whom she knew – either a customer, acquaintance or friend.”

She also had a young son and a fiance with whom she lived in Muskegon.

Myth No. 3: The case is no longer actively being investigated.

Shaw said the case is not "inactive."

“We are still receiving information on a daily basis regarding this case. Unfortunately, most of this information is based on rumor or conjecture, not based on direct witness accounts or actionable intelligence,” Shaw said. “Nevertheless, investigators are still actively following up on the leads, tips, and information as it is received.”

Shaw calls the case the department’s “top priority” and said the task force -- initially formed when Heeringa first disappeared -- could be reconvened for additional resources, if needed.

“Former task force members continue to work on information from their individual agencies. In addition, members of the former task force have met on several occasions to review information received and the investigative reports compiled since it was disbanded to help ensure a comprehensive review has been conducted,” Shaw said.

Myth No. 4: The FBI is taking over the case.

Not true. The FBI reviewed the case early in the investigation and agents continue to provide assistance to the investigation task force and the Norton Shores Police Department, Shaw said.

“The facts of this case currently do not support the FBI assuming jurisdiction of this investigation,” Shaw said. “In order for that to legally occur, the victim must be a juvenile or there must be probable cause to believe the victim has been taken outside of the State of Michigan.”

Therefore, the FBI will not assume jurisdiction but will continue to assist, Shaw said.

Myth No. 5: The Michigan State Police should take over the case.

At this point, that isn't happening, Shaw said.

Shaw cites state law as an explanation for the current status of the case.

“According to State Law, the Norton Shores Police Department is responsible for criminal investigations within the city of Norton Shores. Based on the nature of this crime, it was immediately evident that the Norton Shores Police Department could not conduct this investigation entirely on its own; therefore, an investigative task force was created within 24 hours of Jessica’s abduction,” he said.

The task force included leaders and investigators from Michigan State Police, Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office, Muskegon Police Department and many more, including state and federal officials.

Michigan State Police officials have been “investigating this case from day one" along with the Norton Shores Police Department, Shaw said.

Shaw said numerous resources have been utilized, including: K9 teams, aviation support, behavioral science, intelligence analysts and forensic scientists.

“Bottom line is that in this case, although the Norton Shores Police Department’s name is at the top of the investigative report, this was and remains a county, regional and statewide investigative effort,” Shaw said.

“For this assistance, the Norton Shores Police Department is very grateful.”

The reward for information is up to $15,160, police said, and donations are being accepted to add to that amount.

Donations should be made by check or money order to the Muskegon Community Foundation, C/O Silent Observer, and dropped off or mailed to the Norton Shores Police Department at 4814 S. Henry.

Donations can be made directly to Silent Observer. If a donor wants his or her donation returned if not used, mark “Reward for Jessica,” the press release stated.

Anyone with tips in Heeringa's disappearance is asked to contact Silent Observer at 231-72-CRIME (231-722-7463) or the Norton Shores Police Department at 231-733-2691.
