Here are some things you need to know about Danielle Stislicki:
1. Danielle Stislicki’s family believes she has been abducted.
Danielle Stislicki’s family has expressed concerns that she has been kidnapped and is being held somewhere. Stislicki has not contacted her family since her disappearance and they believe she would get in touch with them if she was able.
“Our concern is that Danielle is somewhere being held, not by her choice, and wants to come home — and we want to bring her home,” said her mother, Ann Stislicki, in a press conference on Wednesday (Dec. 7). Danielle Stislicki’s parents have stated that she was a dependable young woman and would not disappear without a word.
Stislicki has no known mental health issues and nobody has reported that there was any indication that she was unhappy or that she desired to run away.
Farmington Hills police lieutenant Jeff King said that Stislicki has been described as someone who keeps in contact with her friends and family. Her not contacting them is reportedly “out-of-character.” King stated that both the police and her family are concerned for Stislicki’s welfare.
However, aside from Stislicki’s out-of-character behavior, there is no evidence so far that she has been taken or harmed. Lieutenant King has stated there is “no evidence found at this time to lead us to believe that foul play is involved, but the investigation continues.” He has also stated that “the reason she is missing is not the issue. Her safety is the concern.” He said the police department is utilizing “all resources” to find Stislicki.
