Jessica Heeringa, 25, was last seen at the ExxonMobil gas station on Sternberg Road.

That was Friday night, April 26th. She works the late shift at the Norton Shores Exxon.

Friday night, police received a call around 11:15 pm from a customer at the gas station.  The customers called 911 after not seeing a single employee around.

Heeringa personal belongings were left behind, including her vehicle and her purse.

“She’s always bubbly, nice. She’s a good mom. She loves her family and this is not something. She wouldn`t just leave,” April Dyer, Heeringa’s future sister-in-law said.

Saturday, Muskegon police detectives showed up to Heeringa’s Muskegon home to ask loved ones more questions.

Dyer said, “This is not normal at all, especially the fact that her purse and everything was left.” Heeringa also has a three year old son who isn`t quite aware of what’s going on or where his mother is.

“Her son is everything to her. We just want her home, and he’s lost without her,” Dyer explained.

“[Her fiancé] is not doing well at all. He`s taking this really hard,” Dyer said. “Your loved one`s gone. The mother to your son is gone and no answers,” she added.

Dyer is making a plea to anyone who knows anything.

“Call the police department. If you know anybody who knows where she`s at just get a hold of family her son misses her. Her fiancé misses her. Our whole family just misses her,” she said.

Police say Heeringa is 5’1, about 110 pounds. She has blonde shoulder length hair and blue eyes.

She may be wearing her blue collared work shirt with the writing “Sternberg Exxon.” she’s also known to wear wire-rimmed glasses.
