LIVONIA, Mich. - As police and the FBI search Hines Park for any sign of Danielle Stislicki, Farmington Hills Police Chief Chuck Nebus said they do not believe she will be found alive.
Stislicki, 28, has been missing since Dec. 2, 2016. She left work in Southfield that day and was supposed to meet a friend. She never showed up to dinner and has not been seen or heard from since. Her Jeep Renegade was found the next day parked outside her apartment on Halsted Road near Grand River Avenue in Farmington Hills. Police said her purse was still in the Jeep, but it's unclear if Stislicki or someone else parked it outside the apartment complex.
Police and the FBI launched a search Wednesday morning at Hines Park in Livonia.
"Law enforcement authorities have expressed since day one that Danielle Stislicki was a victim of a crime," said Farmington Hills Police Chief Chuck Nebus. "The facts of the case lead us to believe she is not alive. Several air, land, and water searches have been conducted at various places throughout the investigation. Hines Park is being searched as the result of a recent Livonia and Farmington Hills joint investigation. This investigation has led to criminal charges in Livonia against Floyd Galloway, a 30-year-old resident of Berkley. Because the Livonia incident occurred in Hines Park, it is a location that requires searching. There is no specific information or evidence that leads us to believe Danielle’s remains are in the park."
Nebus said more than 100 investigators from nearly 20 different agencies joined in the search Wednesday. Cadaver dogs, 14 of them, also were helping in the search. Police want the public to remember to be alert for potential evidence when outdoors.
"Evidence could be out in the open or concealed inside objects such as bags, containers, suitcases, trunks or bedding," Farmington Hills police said in a statement. "Items to be watchful for are Danielle’s sky blue colored three-in-one Eddie Bauer coat, black zip-up shirt, blue jeans, and burgundy boots. The public is also asked to look for a tan and brown striped comforter, which could also be important to this case."
Anyone with any information about the disappearance of Danielle Stislicki is urged to contact the Farmington Hills Police Department Command Desk at 248-871-2610.
