The 25-year-old Norton Shores woman was abducted from the Exxon Mobil, 1196 E. Sternberg Road, shortly before she was scheduled to close the gas station late Friday night, according to Norton Shores Police.

Anyone wishing to help can collect flyers at any time today in the parking lot of The Pointes shopping plaza located just west of the gas station.

Organizer Carrie Mitchell said flyers are also available on facebook at www.facebook.com/findjessicaheeringa.

A candlelight vigil is being organized and a command station at a location at The Pointes is also in the works, Mitchell said. Information will be posted on the facebook page.

Bank accounts have also been set up at PNC to help fund the search, and at Lake Michigan Credit Union, to help pay for Heeringa’s sister, Samantha, to come home from Florida.

Diane Homrich, who is manning the volunteer station with her husband, Roman, said her granddaughter is bright and bubbly.

“She would help anybody who needed help,” Homrich said.

Jessica’s mother, Shelly Heeringa, asked people to keep calling in their tips.

“Whether or not they think it might not mean nothing, it might mean something,” Shelly said. “Just call.”

Shelly said if anyone sees someone that looks like the suspect to call.

“Just call in, just call in so we can get Jess back,” she said.
