Search efforts continue more than 5 months after Monroe County woman's disappearance

It's been five months since Chelsea Bruck disappeared. The 22-year-old Monroe woman vanished after a Halloween party last October. Bruck's mother held a press conference Thursday morning in hopes of drawing more attention to the search.

Major searches for Chelsea have been put on hold, but the family says police and volunteers are still searching for her. Posting flyers has become their primary focus. So far, one million flyers have been distributed in an attempt to keep Chelsea's face in the public eye.

Her mother, Leannda Bruck, says she is mailing out about 55,000 flyers each week. They are being posted in Toledo and metro Detroit businesses.

Bruck is asking everyone in the area took keep an eye out for signs of her daughter.

"Chelsea could be as close as our own back yard so please be alert. We can't be everywhere at once. We don't know everyone. We don't know everyone's habits, like the people down the road around the corner," Bruck said Thursday.

Bruck says she firmly believes there is more good than bad in the world and that there are a multitude of possibilities as to where her daughter may be. She says human trafficking has been discussed, but ultimately she believes Chelsea is out there alive and she wants the public to come forward and share information.

The reward for information leading to the discovery of Chelsea is now at $30,000. Anyone with information regarding her disappearance should call Crime Stopper at 1-800-SPEAK-UP (1-800-773-2587).
