NORTON SHORES, Mich.- In addition to the growing number of tips that police are receiving from the public, they say there is new surveillance video that strengthens their interest in the silver minivan that they’ve been looking for.

We’re told the video will be made available early Wednesday morning.

It’s been more than four days and still no sign of Jessica Heeringa.  Tuesday,  hundreds of people gathered to light a candle, support family and pray for her safe return.

Thousands of fliers with Jessica’s picture were passed out along with a sketch of the man police believe may be responsible for her abduction.

Norton Shores Police Chief Daniel Shaw says the sketch and vigil brought in hundreds of tips.  So many, they may need to bring in help from around the state to investigate them all.

Right now, the community of Norton Shores and nearby neighborhoods are in shock living in fear over the disappearance of the 25-year-old mother.
