BENZIE COUNTY — A $10,000 reward is being offered for locating a missing Southfield woman.

According to a news release, the Benzie County Sheriff’s Office and the Michigan State Police are seeking the public’s help in locating 47-year-old Adrienne Quintal, of Southfield.

Police said that at around 2:45 a.m. Oct. 17, Quintal called a third party in Warren and asked for help. The third party then contacted the Sheriff’s Office.

At around 2:58 a.m., deputies and the Michigan State Police responded to a family cabin in Honor, Michigan, where Quintal was staying, but she was not there.

Police observed evidence of possible foul play, according to the release.

Quintal left behind her personal property, including her vehicle, her cellphone and her purse, police said.

On Oct. 19, police said the Benzie County Sheriff’s Office, the Benzie County Office of Emergency Management and a local Community Emergency Response Team conducted a search of the area surrounding the cabin Quintal was staying in prior to her disappearance.

“The search did not turn up any new evidence supporting any theories around the recent disappearance of Adrienne,” police said in the news release.

Police said investigators are following up on leads and tips, and they also are conducting further interviews of witnesses.

Quintal is described as white, with long brown hair and brown eyes. She is around 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 125 pounds, and she goes by the name Ada, police said.

According to Angelique McNaughton, who works in regional communications at GoFundMe for the upper Midwest, Quintal’s son recently set up a page to collect reward money for information that leads to his mother’s discovery.

At press time, the campaign had raised $3,070 of its $10,000 goal.

Deputy Chief Nick Loussia, of the Southfield Police Department, said Southfield police have not been asked to aid in the search for Quintal.

Anyone with information on Quintal or her whereabouts is asked to call Benzie County Central Dispatch at (231) 882-4487 or the Michigan State Police Silent Observer hotline at (866) 774-2345.
