Task Force releases sketch of suspect in Norton Shores abduction case


NORTON SHORES (WKZO) -- Hundreds turned out in a field near the gas station in Norton Shores where 25-year-old Jessica Heeringa was believed to have been kidnapped last Friday night, possibly by someone she knew.

Jessica's grandmother, Diane Homrich, says her granddaughter likely knew the kidnapper.Police say they've cleared four people of interest so far, including Heeringa's fiancé, using lie detectors.

An investigative task force continues to pursue every avenue of the tips and the information takes them.

Chief Dan Shaw says now they will make use of the new artist’s sketch of the suspect to try and flush him out.

Shaw says they got a flood of new tips after the sketch was released yesterday afternoon, that they will now pursue, and they are also cross-checking the sex offender registry with pictures, and descriptions.

Reward money is now available to anyone who offers information that leads to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect.
