FERNDALE (WWJ) — A local family is out searching in Ferndale Monday evening for any sign of a woman who hasn’t been seen since early last week.
Angela Bartman, 33, who lives in National City, Michigan with her mom but was originally from Ferndale was last seen on Tuesday in the northeast Michigan community.
Her brother Jeremy Bartman says there’s a chance she came back to Ferndale, because her siblings live in metro Detroit.
“She hasn’t been here lately because she hasn’t been doing well, but we kind of had to rule out that she’s still up north because we’ve already conducted a thorough search up north,” Jeremy said. “There was a couple of tips that she might have been down in the area. Some people said that they may have seen her, they were supposed to file a police report, but we don’t know if they did or not.”
Family members say Angela left home to go to a gas station to buy a soda. They say that she is medicated for schizophrenia and my be unstable without it.
Jeremy said about 16 people will be out on the search for Angela on Monday night.
“We’re going to divide up the areas of Ferndale so we can start locating her,” Jeremy said. “We’re going to be passing out flyers and posting flyers on every street.”
Angela is described as 5-foot-8 and 200 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair while wearing a tie-dyed hoodie, jeans and tie dye shoes. She only had eight dollars on her when she went missing and does not have a cell phone.
Angela was last seen driving a dark blue 2010 Jeep Compass.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
