WARREN (WWJ/AP) – Family members of a 22-year-old Warren woman missing since June are using fliers and social media as part of an effort to find her.
Theresa DeKeyzer hasn’t used her cellphone or accessed her bank account since she was dropped off by her boyfriend early June 16 about four blocks from home near 9 Mile Road and Van Dyke Avenue, and she hasn’t picked up her paycheck from work.
Warren Police Detective Sgt. Stephen Mills said the investigation is ongoing and nothing has been ruled out. Tips about possible sightings of the woman haven’t proven true.
“In my 19 years, this is the first time I’ve come up against a dead end like this,” Mills told the Detroit News. “Our hope is that she is alive and may be partying with some friends, but it is very disconcerting that she hasn’t used her phone or had any bank activities.”
Police in Warren have twice interviewed DeKeyzer’s 37-year-old boyfriend, Scott Wobbe, who is currently jailed in a drug case. They’ve also searched his home with cadaver dogs, but found no evidence to show that he was involved in DeKeyzer’s disappearance.
The day before DeKeyzer went missing, she was apparently involved in a physical altercation with Wobbe, who has a lengthy criminal history that includes assault convictions. When DeKeyzer refused to get out of his car, he reportedly dragged her out by her shirt. She started hitting him with her fists, and he allegedly punched her back in the face. The fight ended when neighbors intervened and Wobbe fled the scene.
Reports say DeKeyzer was checked out by police at the scene, and said she would file a report in the morning.
About six hours after the fight, DeKeyzer walked to a gas station for cigarettes. Wobbe told police he picked DeKeyzer up from the gas station that night, and they went back to his house and made up, the Detroit News reported. The next day, around 6 a.m., Wobbe allegedly dropped DeKeyzer off near her home. She hasn’t been seen since. Authorities said the last phone call she made was at 9:30 a.m. that day.
DeKeyzer is described as 5’7″ tall and around 130 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. She has a small tattoo of a black outline of a shell on her right wrist.
Anyone who may have spotted DeKeyzer or who has information about her whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP. You can also text CSM along with your tip to CRIMES (274637) or submit information online at this link.
