Danielle Stislicki missing: Michigan woman's Jeep found at home; cops seek leads

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – The family of a 28-year-old woman who went missing last week suspects she may have been abducted, reports CBS Detroit.

Danielle “Dani” Stislicki reportedly left her job at MetLife in Southfield at around 5 p.m. on December 2. She was supposed to stop at home and then meet a friend for dinner. But police say she never showed up at dinner, didn’t come to work the next day, and hasn’t been heard from since.

“Our concern is that Danielle is somewhere being held, not by her choice, and wants to come home — and we want to bring her home,” her mother said at a press conference Wednesday. Stislicki’s parents told reporters that she is dependable, and she wouldn’t just disappear without a word.

A day after she was last seen, police say her Jeep was found outside her home at the Independence Green apartments in Farmington Hills. The vehicle was locked, police said, and Stislicki’s purse — along with her ID and credit cards — was found inside. Police said they found no signs of a struggle.

Police are looking to speak with anyone who may have seen Stislicki or her Jeep between 5 p.m. Dec. 2 and 6 p.m. Dec. 3, when her Jeep was found.

Police are also reportedly looking for Stislicki’s keys, with a distinctive key charm: a smiling yellow figure with a green body and yellow legs. They are also looking for her cell phone: a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime phone in a rose-colored case.

Stislicki is described as 5 feet, 5 inches, about 123 pounds, with brown wavy medium-length hair. She was wearing jeans, a black zip-up shirt, a sky blue Eddie Bauer 3-in-1 jacket and burgundy boots. She has no known mental health issues.

A cash reward raised via GoFundMe for information leading to Stislicki’s whereabouts is reportedly up to over $16,000. CBS Detroit reports that a $50,000 reward is also being offered by Independence Green Apartments upon the safe return of Danielle and an arrest and conviction if illegal activity was involved.

About a  dozen law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and Secret Service, are now involved in the investigation.

Anyone who may have seen this missing woman with information should call Farmington Hills Police Command Desk anytime at 248-871-2610. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
