HAZEL PARK, Mich. (WJBK) - The body of a missing Troy woman was found inside a Hazel Park home late Tuesday night, a police source tells FOX 2.
The police source says Jessica White, 21, was found inside her boyfriend's home in the 600 block of Woodward Heights Boulevard, which is between 9 and 10 mile roads and near John R Road.
White went missing after hanging out with a friend April 23. She last was heard from when she sent a text message to her mother at 2:45 a.m., saying her friend and his father were in an argument and it was "awkward." She had not been seen or heard from since.
Since then, the community has banded together and passed out several flyers in hopes of finding White.
This message was posted on the community's Facebook page early this morning:
