The family of a missing Farmington Hills woman hopes Michigan hunters will uncover some clues to her disappearance.
Danielle Stislicki, 28, disappeared on Dec. 2, 2016, after leaving her workplace at MetLife in Southfield. A friend contacted her family after Stislicki failed to show up for a planned dinner. Her Jeep was left near her home at Independence Green Apartments, in the area of Halsted and Grand River, with her purse still inside.
The initial search of the Independence Green apartment complex and surrounding area included police, friends, family, and K-9 officers, along with the Michigan State Police helicopter. Since then, authorities have identified security guard Floyd Galloway Jr., 30, as a person of interest in her disappearance.
From the beginning, police have asked for the public’s help in locating Stislicki’s blue Eddie Bauer jacket, Samsung Galaxy Core Prime cell phone in a rose colored case, and a key chain with a charm and two keys.
On Wednesday, the family posted a Facebook message to reach hunters:
“With deer season upon us, many hunters will be taking to the woods, here in Michigan. We are asking hunters to be vigilant of what they come across in the woods.”
In addition to the original items, the post noted, “Investigators are also asking us to keep an eye out for a tan and brown striped comforter, and any pieces of luggage/containers that look out of place. Keep in mind that if these items have been exposed to the elements for nearly a year, their appearance may have changed a great deal.”
Farmington Hills Police have identified a person of interest, 30-year-old Floyd Galloway, Jr., who was a security guard in the building where Stislicki worked. Galloway faces charges in the Sept. 4, 2016 attack on a jogger in Livonia’s Hines Park. Police searched his home in December of 2016 and, in mid-July, conducted a massive search of Hines Park.
The family has capped the reward for information at $129,000; it includes contributions from MetLife, Independence Green Apartments, and a GoFundMe account. Learn more at finddani.org.
