Candlelight vigil planned for Jessica Heeringa


NORTON SHORES (WKZO) -- The disappearance of Jessica Heeringa continues to mobilize police and private citizens into action.

Volunteers are doing searches, and hanging flyers, and planning a candlelight vigil Tuesday  evening at 8 at a mall parking lot near the gas station.

Her fiancé and the father of her 3-year old boy  says he has been searching fields and woods, looking for any trace of Jessica.

A police task force has been set up, the FBI are assisting and they are chasing down the many tips and leads from the public.

They are expected to release a sketch of their suspect today.Police have released the 9-1-1 tape made by a man who stopped at the EXXON station where Jennifer Heeringa had been working, and discovered that she had vanished.

Craig Harpster told WZZM-TV that he knew something was amiss right away when he could not find her.

Heeringa is described as a petite blonde 5-foot 1-inch tall weighing about 110 lbs. She has a 3-year-old son.

Norton Shores police have obtained video of the suspects van taken Friday night, at about the time that 25-year-old Jessica Heeringa vanished from the EXXON Station about a mile away.

The timer on the video is set to the wrong time, and the picture is only grainy and fleeting, but a security camera aimed out into the parking lot of the Old Homestead bar captured a picture of a silver van going by.

Police Chief Dan Shaw says this is the kind of evidence the task force is tracking down, among other angles. They are also pursuing tips.

It is impossible to see a license plate or tell whether anyone is in the van. It does tell a task force of investigators now on the case what direction the possible abductor was headed after the crime, north on Grand Haven Road.
