Police come up empty in search for missing downstate woman

Police were unsuccessful in their search of two lakes and a lakeside property in Bismarck Township for a missing Warren woman.

A Michigan State Police dive team searched Wilson Lake Friday and part of Lake Nettie Saturday for 51-year-old Kimberly Ann Dejohn. She was reported missing by her sister on May 28 and last seen May 14. State police were assisted by Warren Police and Presque Isle County sheriff’s deputies. Presque Isle Sheriff’s Detective Joe Mulka said police had reason to believe Dejohn’s disappearance involved foul play and that she may be in or near the bodies of water.

Sgt. Stephen Mills of the Warren Police Department said they’ve searched Dejohn’s Warren residence. The search of Wilson Lake and a secluded portion of Lake Nettie produced no results and was called off. Detectives met Monday to discuss progress in the investigation, and at the time there were no new leads.

Dejohn’s husband, who as of Saturday was in custody on a charge of aggravated domestic battery, has a grandmother who owns property on one of the lakes, Mulka said. Cadaver dogs were brought in to search there as well. The husband could be facing additional charges pending the investigation.

Dejohn is described as a white, five foot five inch tall woman weighing 165 pounds with brown hair and eyes. She has multiple tattoos. Anyone with information on her whereabouts can call the Presque Isle County Sheriff Department at 734-2156 or Warren Police Department at 586-574-4790.
