MONROE COUNTY, MI (Toledo News Now) - Leannda Bruck, mother of missing 22-year-old Chelsea Bruck, is staying hopeful.
It's been five months since Chelsea went missing at a Halloween party in Frenchtown Township. On April 5, a tip led the Monroe County Sheriff's Office to an abandoned industrial site and field in Flat Rock, MI, where they found clothing and other evidence related to Chelsea.
“It's good news,” Leannda said. “It gives us a direction: north, south, east or west.”
The evidence was sent to a crime lab for analysis, and investigators haven't revealed any more details about it, but they did speak with the Bruck family.
“It's not easy, but we have strength in our family and in our community, my good lord upstairs, and that keeps us going and keeps us positive,” Leannda said. “We're here until she comes home.”
The reward for information leading to Chelsea is now $30,000. Anyone with information that could help should call Crime Stopper at 1-800-SPEAK-UP (800-773-2587).
