WALKER, Mich. (WOOD) — In their effort to find a woman who has been missing for six days, Walker police are asking the public for help.

Berta Yolanda Reyes, 40, was last seen the morning of April 24 when her husband dropped her off at work at the Neal Mast & Son Greenhouse in the area of Bristol Avenue and 4 Mile Road NW in Walker, police say. It’s not clear if Reyes’ husband saw her enter the employee door where he dropped her off.

No one else was there when she would have arrived, police said. She never clocked in. Coworkers who arrived later said they never saw her.

When Reyes’ son came to pick her up at about 5:30 p.m. that afternoon, she wasn’t there. She was reported missing around 1 a.m. Friday.

The wife and mother has lived in the Grand Rapids area for the last 15 years or so. Police say it’s out of character for her to not be in contact with her family.

Walker police say they are struggling in their investigation due to language barriers, but say Reyes’ husband is cooperating and seems concerned about his wife. There are not any apparent domestic issues at play, police say.

Walker police say they have three detectives working the case full time and that they have gotten some tips in the case, but still don’t know where Reyes may be.

They are asking for the public’s help to provide any information about Reyes’ whereabouts. Anyone with information is asked to call Walker police at 616.453.5441 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.

Reyes is 5-foot-3 and about 120 pounds with brown hair and eyes. She was last seen wearing tennis shoes, blue jeans and a sweater.
