(CBS) NORTON SHORES, Mich. -- Police in Michigan are searching for Jessica Heeringa, an Exxon gas station clerk, who reportedly disappeared from the station on Friday night, according to officials.

Officials believe the 25-year-old mother was closing the store when she was abducted, according to CBS affiliate WWJ. Her purse and other personal belongings were found at the gas station. There was also no money missing from the cash drawer, reports the station.

Police said there was apparently no struggle inside the store, MLive reported. 

Police are now searching for a silver minivan, which may be a Chrysler Town and Country, that was seen at the station before Heeringa's disappearance.

Police are describing the driver of the van as a white male, between 30 and 40 years old, about six feet tall, with a medium to heavy build and broad shoulders. The driver had light brown or sandy blonde wavy hair and was last seen wearing a bright red or orange sweatshirt, reports MLive.

Heeringa is described as a white female, about five feet, one inch tall and 110 pounds, with shoulder-length blond hair and blue eyes. She reportedly wears wire rim glasses and may be wearing a blue collared shirt labeled with "Sternberg Exxon."

Anyone who may have witnessed suspicious activity near the Exxon Mobil gas station is asked to contact Silent Observer at 231-72-CRIME (231-722-7463) or call 911.
