From the start, both the Portage Police Department and Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office were involved in the missing person investigation and didn't release much information about the case.

They did say they had a person of interest they believed knew where to find Heather Kelley. We'll talk more about the person of interest in a second. Let's go over what we know first.

Missing Michigan Mom Of 8 Was Dating Man With ‘Murder-For-Hire’ History

Heather Kelley's family says that she was dating a man that was charged with a 'murder-for-hire' plot.

Wood TV reported that the unknown man also was accused of soliciting others to help him murder a drug dealer who had robbed him.

He was sentenced to 13 years in federal prison in 2013 for the conspiracy and on a weapons charge, but records don’t show what happened in the murder-for-hire plot.

This man was released from federal prison in the summer of 2022 and transferred to a halfway house in Detroit. On December 12th he was reported missing from the facility and on December 14th he was arrested and sent to the Newaygo County Jail.

There's no official word if he is in fact the person of interest in this case.

What Does Heather Kelley Look Like?

Heather has several tattoos, including a lion and rose tattoo on her right forearm and a dream catcher tattoo on her left forearm.

Police say Heather always wears a silver heart necklace.
