Farmington Hills, Michigan woman Danielle Stislicki vanished after leaving work almost six months ago. She is one of thousands of people missing in Michigan, which is why the state has called attention to the issue by deeming the month of May as Michigan Missing Persons Awareness Month.
In total, there are more than 4,000 active missing person cases being worked on in the state, according to the C&G Newspaper. In addition to that, the news media outlet reports that Michigan State Police Detective Sgt. Sarah Krebs has stated law enforcement is working on around 300 unsolved cases that involve unidentified remains.

Fortunately, over 70 cases of Michigan missing persons have been resolved over the past six years, C&G reports. Krebs noted that authorities continually work with the community to obtain answers for families and justice for those who are missing to keep these cases from going cold.
Unfortunately, according to the C&G report, in a written statement Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder indicated that over 86,000 people are missing nationally.

Nina offers some key information about the case in the podcast garnered from interviewee Farmington Hills Assistant Chief Matt Koehn who told her authorities do not believe Danielle ever made it back to her apartment after leaving work on the day she vanished.
Chief Koehn also talked about a house in Berkley that was searched only weeks after Danielle’s mysterious disappearance by saying the following.
“We did conduct more than one search at a home in Berkley on Oxford Street… in order to obtain evidence. I can’t talk too much about the evidence we obtained but I can confirm that we did search the house in Berkley… where a former coworker of hers did live… We’re not making any formal announcement of a person of interest and or a suspect but we are following up on our leads.”
The chief also told Nina that his department is working closely with Danielle’s family, and had nothing but praise for their incredible strength during this difficult time. He said Danielle’s case is being worked on every day and progress is being made.

Danielle, 28 at the time, went missing in the late afternoon of Friday, December 2, 2016, after leaving her job at MetLife at around 5 p.m. She had plans later in the evening to meet a lifelong female friend for dinner after first stopping at her apartment on the way home from work.
When Danielle failed to show up for the planned dinner, her friend became extremely worried. When she was unable to make contact with Danielle by Saturday and Danielle failed to show up for work, the friend became alarmed. She then headed to the Independence Green apartment complex where Danielle lives, and when the friend arrived, she found Danielle’s Jeep Renegade parked near her apartment.
Local law enforcement later announced that inside Danielle’s locked Jeep was her purse, her identification, and her credit cards. Danielle’s keys and cell phone were nowhere to be found. Thus, authorities announced her key ring contains a unique key charm consisting of a yellow figure with a green body and yellow legs. Danielle’s cell phone is a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime in a rose gold case.
Danielle is described as being 5-feet, 5-inches tall, and weighing about 123 pounds. She has brown wavy medium-length hair and was wearing a black shirt, blue jeans, a blue Eddie Bauer jacket, and burgundy boots when she vanished.
Police want to speak to anyone who may have spotted Danielle or her Jeep between 5 p.m. on Friday, December 2, and 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 3, when her vehicle was found. Danielle’s vehicle is a black 2015 Jeep Renegade with Michigan License Plate DGH 8957.

Danielle’s employer, MetLife is offering a $50,000 reward, and the Independence Green apartment complex where Danielle lives is offering another $50,000, making the current reward $133,640.
