Police search lakes for missing woman

BISMARCK TOWNSHIP – Police searched two lakes in Bismarck Township Friday and Saturday for a missing Warren woman.

A Michigan State Police dive team searched Wilson Lake Friday and Lake Nettie Saturday for Kim Dejohn, who went missing May 14, Presque Isle County Sheriff’s Detective Joe Mulka said. His agency was one of three searching the area, including detectives from Warren Police Department. Dejohn’s sister reported her as missing on May 28, and police suspect foul play was involved.

Tiny Wilson Lake is located just off the west shore of Lake Nettie, and the two are connected by a channel.

Dejohn’s husband has ties to the area, and a cadaver dog searched some property owned by the husband’s grandmother, Mulka said. The dive team searched adjacent to the property. The husband was in custody as of Saturday and is charged with aggravated domestic battery. That charge could be enhanced pending the investigation into his wife’s disappearance.

Police also searched the husband’s house in Warren, Mulka said. Unless their investigation revealed more information, Friday and Saturday’s searches were likely the last in the area.

No further information on the investigation was available Sunday evening.

Mulka urges anyone with information relating to Dejohn’s disappearance to call the sheriff’s department at 734-2156.
