A West Michigan police chief has released a sketch of a man sought for questioning in the disappearance of a 25-year-old woman from her job as a gas station night clerk.

Norton Shores Police Chief Daniel Shaw said Tuesday he believes authorities will find Jessica Heeringa, who's been missing since Friday.

Hundreds of people attended a candlelight vigil Tuesday evening for Heeringa at Pointes Mall in the Muskegon suburb.

Police leads include surveillance video from a tavern near the suspected abduction site.

The short clip shows a silver or gray Chrysler minivan driving away from the scene and traveling north.

Shaw says that bolsters a witness' description of a similar van parked near the station. He has released a sketch of a man believed to be the driver.
