The 16-year old Hewitt Trussville student was last seen on Tuesday around noon off of Roper Road in Trussville. She may have been in a white, two-door car. Her family has not heard from here since Monday night. A report was filed with the Trussville police department, who family members say have spoken with several of Michelle’s friends, but haven’t turned up any information so far.
Michelle is 5 foot 3 inches tall and weighs 115 lbs. She has brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone who has any information on her whereabouts is asked to call the Trussville police department at 205-655-2101 or the Birmingham police department at 205-254-0936.
“What worries me the most is that none of her friends have heard from her,” Andrew Cook, Michelle’s father said. “I just want my daughter home and to know that she’s safe. That’s all that matters to me right now.”
