Brittney Ann Beers

On the night of September 16, 1997, Brittney was playing outside around the Village Manor Apartments in Sturgis, MI, where she lived with her family. When Brittney’s mother, Tina Stetler, left to run errands at approximately 8:30 p.m. she saw her daughter riding her bike. Brittney’s half brother saw her sitting on a bench approximately five minutes after their mother left. A witness told authorities that he saw Brittney speaking to an unidentified male, who was in a red or a brown mid-size vehicle . She walked over to the witness and told him that she “made a new friend.”

Brittney has not been seen since that night. Her mother returned home at approximately 9:05 p.m., and asked Brittney’s half brother to find her. Brittney’s abandoned bicycle was found, but there were no signs of Brittney.

The apartment complex is located on US 12, which is a major highway through Sturgis.
