NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WOOD) – A donation of $4,000 has increased the Silent Observer reward for information leading to the location of Jessica Heeringa and the conviction of whoever abducted her to more than $25,000.

The donation was made days after the one-year anniversary of Heeringa’s disappearance by Great Lakes Ford of Muskegon, according to the Norton Shores Police Department.

Norton Shores Police Chief Daniel Shaw said in a release that his department appreciated the donation, and hoped the reward would encourage anyone with information to come forward.

“We believe that the Silent Observer reward will be instrumental in assisting us solve this case,” he said. “Someone knows where Jessica is and can identify her abductor.”

Heeringa, 25, went missing from her job at the Exxon Mobil gas station on Sternberg Road in Norton Shores on April 26, 2013.

Monday, Shaw said that no new tips had been generated by the media coverage of the one-year anniversary of Heeringa’s disappearance.
