An article about it is here.
Sometime between the hours of 7:21PM on Tuesday December 4th and early the following day Janna Kelly went missing.
Janna made a purchase at Michael’s craft store at 7:21PM that Tuesday evening and the receipt was found in her Grand Rapids condominium. However, there was no answer at her home an hour later when her boyfriend Earl Lynn called to check on her. On Wednesday morning Janna did not show up for work at the Burr Insurance Agency in which she is a Vice President/Operations Manager.
Being totally out of character for the 60-year-old businesswoman, her coworkers became concerned. They made a call to her family and her family went to her house only to find her bed not slept in and her car gone.
By Wednesday afternoon her wallet had been found on the ground at a car wash between Burton and Kalamazoo and upon further inspection of the area, her purse was found in a trash bin. Cash was taken from her wallet but her credit cards were left.
By Thursday evening her car was also located in the Ottawa Hills neighborhood just off Plymouth Avenue near Louise Street. The Grand Rapids Police Department has stated that there seems to be no foul play indicated either in the vehicle or her condominium.
Police have set up a command center in the parking lot of Breton Village and bloodhounds have been brought in to search the area around Ms. Kelly’s home as well as the car wash where her wallet and purse were located, yet no significant signs have been found.
Janna is described as 5-foot-4-inches and weighing about 140 pounds.
There is currently a $10,000 reward offered for information in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 456-3604 or Silent Observer at 774-2345. Silent Observer also can be contacted confidentially at This Link.
