The Disappearance of Brittany Shank

Brittany Shank has been missing since November 30th, 2018. The 23-year-old woman was last seen that evening on Fawn River Road in Sturgis, Michigan. Brittany was driving her boyfriend's car when she ran the vehicle off the road into the thick fog. She was then seen walking from house to house asking for help. Brittany never returned to the vehicle, nor did she ever return home to her four children. She has never been seen or heard from again.

Various reports state that Brittany appeared confused as she walked down the road asking for help. She was apparently not wearing shoes or a jacket, despite the cold weather that night. According to Brittany's mother, Jessica Rolfe, Brittany was seen for the final time around 9:30pm. Jessica told reporters, "She went to a couple houses and knocked on the doors. She knocked on one door, was seen at the window at another house, that’s the last time anybody has seen her." Jessica also explained that one resident apparently did attempt to call 911 for Brittany but was unable to receive enough cell phone signal for the call to go through. Brittany vanished before they could attempt to call again.

While investigating Brittany's case, police learned that Brittany was seen with an unidentified male in the hours leading up to her disappearance. The man is described to be between 5'6" to 5'8" while blonde hair and sideburns. It is unclear if this man is considered to be a person of interest in Brittany's disappearance.

Michigan State Police are investigating Brittany's case. If you have any information that could lead to her whereabouts, please call 269-558-0500.
