A West Michigan police official says he believes authorities will find a 25-year-old gas station clerk who went missing last week while working the night shift.
Norton Shores Police Chief Daniel Shaw said Tuesday it gets harder as time passes to solve the case involving the disappearance Friday of Jessica Heeringa. But he says investigators continue to pursue leads and examine limited evidence.
Among the evidence is surveillance video from a nearby tavern in the Muskegon suburb where police say the mother was abducted. The short clip shows a silver or gray Chrysler minivan driving away from the scene and traveling north.
Shaw says that bolsters a witness' description of a similar van parked near the station. He says the video doesn't show people inside or a license plate number.
