NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WZZM) -- Jessica Heeringa has been missing for nearly three months and since then she's missed important events like Mothers' Day. Tuesday marks her 26th birthday.

Heeringa was last seen working the Exxon gas station on East Sternberg Road April 26. Police believe she was abducted by someone she knew just before her shift ended at 11 p.m.

Since then a big break in the investigation has eluded police. However Norton Shores Police Chief Dan Shaw says investigators have not lost hope that the big break will happen.

"We still believe someone knows where Jessica is and we need that person or persons to step forward and give us that information," says Chief Shaw.

Tuesday Heeringa turned 26 years old. Her fiancé Dakota and son Zevyn spent the day together with no particular major events to mark the day.

Police have collected binders full of tips but the number of calls each week is shrinking. Yet stores in Muskegon County still display posters with Jessica's face, a sketch of the potential suspect and photos of the Chrysler minivan police believe the abductor drove.

For Heeringa's family special dates continue to come and go on the calendar and so on her birthday, Chief Shaw is again asking the public for help finding Jessica and the man who took her from her family.

"There are a lot of people that want to find her. Family members that want her back. And we want her back as well," says Chief Shaw.
