Her friend became very concerned when Danielle did not show up for the planned dinner meeting. She headed to Danielle’s apartment complex, where she found the missing woman’s vehicle parked. Danielle also failed to show up at work on Saturday the following morning.
Local law enforcement later announced that Danielle’s vehicle was found just outside the Independence Green apartments where she lives. CBS News reports that inside Danielle’s locked Jeep Renegade was her purse, her identification, and her credit cards.
Danielle’s keys and cell phone were nowhere to be found, which police find “highly suspicious,” reports Click on Detroit. Authorities announced that her key ring contains a unique key charm consisting of “a smiling yellow figure with a green body and yellow legs,” CBS News reports. Danielle’s cell phone is described as a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime in a rose colored case.
According to Click on Detroit, police are now “pursuing new leads” in the search for Danielle, and have announced that an update slated for Monday could reinvigorate the case.

Danielle’s family members have publicly proclaimed they are certain she would not just disappear voluntarily without notifying anyone. They describe Danielle as being an extremely dependable, responsible, and conscientious person who had many plans for the future.
Danielle’s father, Rich Stislicki, told the Huffington Post that abduction was the only explanation for what has happened to his daughter. He said that he remains hopeful they will find Danielle, but noted that any outcome that results in this case will be difficult, saying, “If she’s alive… she’ll be traumatized after this.” Rich added, “We already know that there is going to be sadness, no matter which way it turns out.”
Danielle is described as being 5’5″ tall, and weighing about 123 lbs. She has brown, wavy, medium-length hair and was wearing a black shirt, blue jeans, a light blue Eddie Bauer jacket, and maroon boots when she vanished.
At press, a GoFundMe campaign offering a reward for information that will lead to Danielle’s whereabouts had surpassed its $25,000 goal and was at $26,020. Danielle’s employer, MetLife, is offering a $50,000 reward, and the Independence Green apartment complex where Danielle lives is offering yet another reward in the amount of $50,000, making the current reward well over $126,000.
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, according to a CBS News report. Danielle’s vehicle is a dark gray 2015 Jeep Renegade with Michigan License Plate DGH 8957.
Click on Detroit reports that police are investigating whether Danielle actually drove her Jeep to her apartment complex or whether someone else was behind the vehicle when it arrived at the location and then parked it there.
Anyone who has information regarding Danielle Stislicki is urged to call the Farmington Hills Police Command Desk at 248-871-2610 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP or 1-800-773-2587. Those who call with any information about the missing woman can remain anonymous if they so desire.
