DETROIT - Danielle Stislicki's sisters and best friends spoke exclusively to Local 4 for the first time since the 28-year-old went missing more than a year ago.
Stislicki's family sat inside a Detroit courtroom Friday as the person of interest in her disappearance was sentenced to prison for attacking a jogger at Hines Park. Floyd Galloway, 30, was sentenced to 16 to 35 years for the attack and attempted rape.
"I'm happy that he's finally behind bars," Danielle's best friend, Sarah Pollack, said. "I just want him to talk and tell us where Danielle is."
Pollack and Stislicki's sisters, Jillian Stislicki, 21, and Holly Stislicki, 23, got tattoos in her honor.
Pollack's tattoo, on her forearm, depicts her and Danielle sitting on a swing and looking at a shooting star.
Jillian Stislicki's tattoo is from the graduation card that Danielle sent her.
"This is what she signed it at the bottom," Jillian Stislicki said. "It says, 'I love you so much, XOXO, Danielle.'"
Holly Stislicki said they wanted to get the tattoos on their forearms to know that their sister was always there with them.
Danielle Stislicki's sisters were in court when Galloway was sentenced.
"It's nice to know that he's behind bars, and he can't do it to somebody else," Jillian Stislicki said.
Pollack was supposed to meet Danielle Stislicki after work on Dec. 2, 2016, the night she disappeared.
"It's not enough yet," Pollack said. "To have her home would be closure. The constant wonder of where she is and when we're going to be able to say goodbye."
