After 8 years, new hope to find missing West Mich. woman
BATTLE CREEK (NEWSCHANNEL 3) -- There's renewed hope to find a West Michigan woman who's been missing for nearly eight years.
Ashley Parlier was seen walking away from her parent's Urbandale home back in 2005.
Investigators found a renewed hope after a story that made headlines, when three girls missing about a decade were recently found alive in an Ohio home.
The lead detective says this was never a cold case, and he never plans it to be.
"We don't know - we don't know what's happened to her," said Det. Scott Silverman, Battle Creek Police Department.
"Day by day. Some days are good and others aren't," said Russel Parlier Junior, Ashley's Father
Where is Ashley Parlier? The answer has baffled investigators and her parents who were the last to see her alive.
"The day she left we confronted her cause her getting pregnant she said I'm gunna take a walk," said Parlier.
Ashley never came back.
"We checked with local hospitals and doctor's offices to see if she got prenatal care and she hasn't," said Det. Silverman.
If she was pregnant, no one's positive who would be the father. With no cell phone and only cash on her, no one has pinpointed where she went next.
Investigators scoured the area on ATV's and volunteers have searched on foot to try and unravel the mystery.
"Right now we're just waiting," said Det. Silverman.
Tips come in all the time, even the last few weeks.
If Ashley were pregnant her child would be turning eight next month. Her parents have a message.
"Give us a call write us a letter let us know you're still aware so I can stop worrying," said Parlier.
