A person of interest arrested in a attempted rape of a jogger is being called a person of interest in the disappearance of Danielle Stislicki.

The suspect is suspected of an attempted rape in Hines Park last Sept., 2016 and is considered a person of interest in the Stislicki case. 

The man has not been arraigned yet in either case and not formally charged.

The 28-year-old woman worked a dayshift at her job at MetLife in Southfield on Friday Dec. 2. She left work early after indicating she was planning to meet a friend. Danielle hasn't been seen since.

Her 2015 Jeep Renegade was found parked outside her apartment at Independence Green Apartments near Halsted and Grand River in Farmington Hills the next morning.

When her car was searched, her purse was found inside the locked vehicle. Inside the purse were her credit cards, driver's license, and other personal items. One thing that's missing is her phone which police have called a key piece of evidence.

Three weeks later, just before Christmas, investigators, armed with a court-ordered warrant, searched a home on Oxford Street in Berkley. The home was the residence of a former security guard at Danielle's employer, MetLife.
