NORTON SHORES, Mich. (AP) -- Some Michigan lawmakers are considering whether surveillance cameras or other security measures should be required at certain businesses following the disappearance of a 25-year-old mother and gas station night clerk.

Police said there was no surveillance video at the Exxon Mobil gas station in Norton Shores where Jessica Heeringa was working when she disappeared Friday.

Democratic state Rep. Marcia Hovey-Wright of Muskegon, Republican state Sen. Goeff Hansen of Hart and Democratic state Rep. Collene Lamonte of Montague tell The Muskegon Chronicle that they'll explore ways to get a law in place to protect convenience store employees.

Hansen says Heeringa's disappearance brought the issue to light.
Police have released portions of two surveillance videos from other area businesses showing a silver or gray Chrysler minivan, but they offer little detail.
