Right! That seems shady to me that he was rude. To me rudeness in these situations make you look guilty. I wonder if he was involved in some way. Just too shady...My dh has to get up for work then...and I'm obviously suffering from insomnia anyways so I'll try to watch that!

NM- Not a news confrence- read it wrong. A local station starting on their "Daybreak" show at 4:30 will have live interviews.

From what I am reading now, the owner was confronted on the news last night, and was really rude, and refused to install a camera system.

If I were her family, I would be suing him for not providing a safe work environment.

Muskegon isn't Detroit, but there is a lot of gang activity, and unsafe areas.

Quoting Anonymous:

I would have presumed it was law. I don't know how a gas station can get away with NOT having one.

All I have heard to this point, is that he admitted to the girl's parents that he does not have any cameras.

There is supposed to be a news conference at 4:30am. Not sure why that time- they announced it at like midnight. Seems a weird time to set it, unless that found something, but the news report also said it had been upgraded for missing person to abduction at the same time, so I doubt they found her yet. :(

Quoting Journeysmama11:

I think that security cams in gas stations should be law. (i'm assuming it's not?) What did the owner have to say about it? Does he feel bad about not having cams?

Quoting Anonymous:

The owner has admitted he has no security camera's, which is not going to help the investigation- it's now reliant completely on eye witnesses, which are not very plentiful that late at night.
Quoting Journeysmama11:

Omg I live in Michigan. I hope they find her! That's scary! Definitely shouldn't have females locking up a gas station alone. 

Did they not have cameras or did they not see anything on them?

I really hope she is ok and they find her, that is so scary!

 ABC News over night has mention Jessica, several times now which is a good thing,as the more people who hear about this the more chance hopefully of finding her safe.
