NORTON SHORES, MI (WNEM/AP) -

Police investigating the disappearance a woman from her job at a western Michigan gas station nearly 11 months ago say they're actively following up on leads, tips and other information in the case.

Norton Shores police Chief Dan Shaw gave an update on the investigation into the case of Jessica Heeringa to The Muskegon Chronicle, saying the case is the department's "top priority." A reward for information is more than $15,000.

Heeringa disappeared April 26 before she was set to close the station in Norton Shores. Police said there was no indication of a robbery. Investigators have said a small amount of blood found outside the station belonged to Heeringa and released a description of a silver minivan and a man seen in the area.

They say the driver was a man, age 30-40, about 6' tall, with center-parted light brown wavy hair.

Heeringa is described as 5'1" tall, weighing 110 pounds with blue eyes and blond, shoulder-length hair.

Police in the Muskegon suburb say customers found the Exxon Mobil gas station open but no employees around. Police say they found Heeringa's purse with cash inside and say no money was missing from the register.

Police say they've ruled out several family members, friends and acquaintances in connection with the disappearance.

Police ask that anyone with information contact them at 231-722-7463.
