A 2,700-acre state park about four miles from where a young Michigan mother was abducted from her job at a gas station has been searched by Norton Shores police. A report of gunfire in the area and the discovery of sunglasses that looked like Jessica Heeringa's prompted the air and ground search.

Norton Shores Police Chief Daniel Shaw said the search turned up no new clues.

Heeringa is believed to have been abducted from the Exxon station on Sternberg Road between 10:50 and 11:15 p.m. Friday, April 26. Around 7:30 a.m. the following morning a caller reported hearing gunshots near P.J. Hoffmaster State Park.

Later, when a person found sunglasses that resembled Heeringa's, police decided to search the area. Chief Shaw said the sunglasses were later determined not to be Heeringa's.

Purse Contained $400

Shaw also said that Saturday was the beginning of turkey season in the area, which could explain the gunshots.

Meanwhile, police released a report revealing that Heeringa's purse, which was left in the gas station when she vanished, contained $400 in cash. They also said the cash in the station's cash register was undisturbed.

Police have released a sketch of a man they want to question in connection with Heeringa's disappearance.
