Missing Michigan Teen Possibly Lured Away By Adult Male Online
LOCATED 8/6/19- 15 year old Gracie Hewartson has been found.
Allegan County teen, 15 year old Gracie Hewartson, was last seen 3:30 p.m. Friday, August 2, 2019. Her parents fear the 15 year old from Hopkins, Michigan (near Wayland) may have disappeared meeting a man she had been chatting with on social media.
Gracie's friends told her parents that their daughter had been in contact with a man on Instagram. The man allegedly offered for the teen to come live with him and that he would take care of her.
On the day Gracie went missing, her grandmother saw something that stuck out while mowing the lawn. A man, with a beard, lingering and driving slowly by in a black car. It struck her as odd because most vehicles drive by at rather fast speeds.
Gracie took her birth certificate, a school computer, Invisalign braces and very few clothes.
Gracie is Caucasian with a light complexion, 5 feet and 3 inches tall, weighs approximately 135 pounds and has a smaller build. She has short dark hair, hazel eyes and wears glasses. Gracie's ears are pierced 3 times, wears a fake cartilage earring and has scars on both legs, mostly on her upper thighs. She was last seen wearing short white jean shorts and a black hoodie.
Anyone with information on Gracie Hewartson's whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Craig Gardiner of the Allegan County Sheriff's Department at 269-673-0500, Extension 4454 or Silent Observer at 1-800-554-3633.
