Police are asking for the public's help in locating a 30-year-old Grand Rapids woman who hasn’t been seen or heard from in nearly three weeks.
Tawhna Pringle was last seen in her apartment complex on or about Jan. 10, Grand Rapids police said Tuesday. She was reported missing by her ex-husband on Jan. 27 after she hadn’t been heard from for more than two weeks. She also had not answered her cellphone.
Police checked her apartment in the 400 block of Southeast 21st Street and found the door to the apartment to be unlocked, with nothing disturbed within the apartment; her vehicle was not in her garage. The mail had not been collected. Police contacted friends and family, and nobody had seen or heard from her.
Grand Rapids police Sgt. Heath Smith said Pringle may have been seen since then driving her silver 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck, Minnesota license plate 698 XHU.
“We’re checking out those leads,” he said.
Pringle - described as 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighing about 135 pounds with medium-length dark hair - has lived in Grand Rapids about one year and has ties to both the Iron Range and Duluth areas.
Smith said there is no reason to believe a crime has been committed or that her absence is not voluntary, but that they want to talk to Pringle to make sure she is OK.
Grand Rapids police ask that you call them at (218) 326-3464 if you have any information on Pringle’s whereabouts.
