NORTON SHORES, Mich. (AP) -- Police investigating the disappearance a 25-year-old woman from her job at a western Michigan gas station nearly six months ago say they continue to press ahead on the investigation.
Norton Shores police Chief Dan Shaw tells The Muskegon Chronicle the "odds are not in our favor at this point" in the search for Jessica Heeringa, but investigators are hopeful. He says they're "continuing to operate as if she is alive."

Heeringa disappeared April 26 before she was set to close the station in Norton Shores. Police say there's no indication of a robbery. Police have released a description of a silver minivan and a man seen in the area. A task force has been working on the case.
