Please help find this woman and mother of a young child. She has been missing since Friday night.

Jessica Heeringa, 25, was abducted from her shift at a gas station just a couple miles from my home in West Michigan (Norton Shores, MI), and very close to where my wife works.  I want to catch the monster who did this.

Jessica is described as a white female, 25 years old, 5'€™1 tall, approximately 110 lbs., blond shoulder length hair, and blue eyes. Jessica is also known to wear wired rim glasses. She may be wearing a blue collared shirt saying "Sternberg Exxon".
Jessica is the mother of a young boy, and is engaged to the brother of an acquaintance of mine.

She was closing the Exxon gas station - the last transaction was at 10:30 PM, and around 11:15 police were dispatched to the station when customers found the station unattended, cleaning supplies out and her purse still there.  

Investigators are currently searching for a silver minivan, possibly a Chrysler Town and Country, that was seen in the area of the Exxon station prior to Jessica'€™s disappearance.

The driver is described as a white male, approximately 30-40 years old, approximately 6'€™ tall, medium to heavy build, broad shoulders, light brown or sandy blond wavy hair parted in the middle and slightly longer on top, wearing a bright red or orange sweatshirt.

Witnesses report seeing the silver minivan by the building, with Jessica and a man, then a struggle.

Authorities are classifying this as an abduction. If you see anything, know anything, hear anything, see a damn silver minivan anywhere call 231-72-CRIME (231-722-7463) or call 911.
See video report here.

Here is a map of where she was kidnapped from in Norton Shores, Michigan. Muskegon, Michigan. Right along the coast, near Grand Rapids. Who knows where she is by now.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
