NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WZZM) -- Blood discovered outside the gas station in west Michigan where a 25-year-old woman vanished came from Jessica Heeringa, who has been missing nearly two weeks.
Investigators found a small amount of blood outside the Exxon Mobil on East Sternberg Road in Norton Shores, where Heeringa disappeared during her shift April 26, Norton Shores Police Chief Daniel Shaw said Wednesday.
"We've got to find her," he said. "She's hurt."
Police, who said DNA analysis determined the blood came from Heeringa, have not said where it was found, but said the development in the case confirms Heeringa was abducted.
"We have no idea how she was injured," Shaw said.
Heeringa's grandmother told the Free Press the news still gives the family hope, since the amount of blood found was small.
