Police seek help finding woman

Battle Creek police are asking the public for help in finding a pregnant woman missing since June.

Ashley M. Parlier, 21, left her Urbandale home on June 12 and family members have not heard from her since, said Detective Sarah Bush of the Battle Creek Police Department.

"We don't have anything suspicious, but no one has seen or heard from her and if she is around, we would like to know she is OK," Bush said. "She is a quiet girl who just walked out the door."

Police are asking anyone who has seen Parlier to call Bush at 966-3408.

Parlier is described as 5-foot-9 and 100 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She is five to seven months pregnant.

She was last seen in June wearing a checkered shirt, jeans and brown leather sandals.

One year later; police still searching for missing woman

Trace Christenson
The Enquirer

A year after she disappeared, Battle Creek police are looking for any sign of Ashley M. Parlier.

“She still is considered missing,” said Detective Sarah Bush, “but certainly that she has not been seen in a year is suspicious and we still are trying to determine what happened to her.”

Parlier, who was 21 when she disappeared June 12, 2005, was last seen walking away from her parents’ home on Bedford Road.

Monday, three members of the Michigan State Police Underwater Recovery Team waded through thick swamp at the northeast corner of Bedford Road and Morgan Road but did not find any evidence of Parlier.

“We searched that area because we had some information that she might be suicidal and possibly went to that area,” Bush said.

A life-long resident of Battle Creek, Parlier attended Battle Creek Central High School and was working at Taco Bell, 821 Capital Ave. N.E.

Bush said Parlier was believed to be pregnant — probably five to seven months along at the time she disappeared — and if she is alive would probably have a small child.

Bush said the woman had a few friends but they had not had much contact with her before she disappeared. She didn’t have a driver’s license or car.

“She was a home body and she had friends but those friends had not had contact with her for a couple of months.”

Shortly after the woman was reported missing, Bush said, investigators had information she might be camping in the Houghton Lake area and distributed flyers but no tips were received.

Parlier’s father, mother and sister have declined to talk to reporters but issued a statement through police Monday that the last year “has been incredibly difficult with her unexplained disappearance. We would like to ask anyone who might have any information about her or about her whereabouts to contact local police. We miss Ashley every day and we just want some closure on this nightmare.”

After 2 years, police, family still searching for Parlier

Trace Christenson
The Enquirer

Almost two years after a Battle Creek woman was reported missing, the search for her continued Thursday.

Battle Creek Police and members of the Southwest Michigan Emergency Response Team Search and Rescue spent several hours combing through a woods on the city's south side looking for Ashley M. Parlier.

Parlier, 21, disappeared June 12, 2005, when she was seen walking away from her parents' home on Bedford Road.

A half dozen people, some on all terrain vehicles, spread out into the woods at the west end of Riverside Parkway and bordered by Territorial Road on the north and Grand Boulevard on the west. One person carried a metal detector and another had a shovel.

"We are here for the continuing investigation of Ashley's disappearance," said Detective Barb Walters. "But I am really not saying why we are at this location."

Searchers rode and walked several paths in the woods and checked underbrush and a creek bed.

After the search ended in the early afternoon, Walters declined to say if any evidence was found.

Parlier, who police said was pregnant when she disappeared, was a graduate of Battle Creek Central High School and had been working at Taco Bell, 821 Capital Ave. N.E.

In June, three members of the Michigan State Police Underwater Recovery Team waded through thick swamp near Bedford and Morgan roads, but didn't find any evidence of Parlier.

"The nice thing is they are not giving up," said Nicole Parlier, 27, Ashley's sister. "They are continuing to search and to take any and every lead they can. They realized she is a sister and a daughter and we miss her and we need some answers."

Nicole Parlier of Peoria, Ill., said the last two years have been difficult for her and her parents.

"We don't want it to be a search that finds something bad, but we would like anything that gives us some answers and some closure to the nightmare of the last two years."

Nicole Parlier said the family doesn't know if they should be grieving a death or missing someone who doesn't want to be found.

Police have said they have no evidence Ashley Parlier is a runaway living somewhere else.

"My parents are distraught and no parent should ever lose their child. The waiting is unbelievably hard, and after two years, it makes it harder with every passing holiday and birthday," Nicole Parlier said.

She said she doesn't have any theories about her sister's disappearance.

"We go through the range of emotions; sometimes we are sure she will come home. It's been a roller-coaster ride."

Police continue search for missing woman

May 10, 2007 - 9:45PM

BATTLE CREEK (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - She's been missing for two years.

At first police did not suspect any foul play in the disappearance of Ashley Parlier. But now they're stepping up their efforts to find her.

Thursday they were scouring an area near Riverside Parkway for any clues. For police this search may have been a search for clues, but for the 21-year-old's family, it's part of a two year search for answers.

It's a mystery her family has lived with for nearly two years.

"You'll be going on and having a great day and something will happen, we don't know what's going on. We don't know where she is. We don't know if she's okay," said Parlier's sister.

It's a case that's puzzled investigators as well. They say it wasn't a particular tip that led them to search the woods off Riverside Parkway, but rather an accumulation of information over the past two years.

"We're really just looking for any information, clues," said Commander Jim Saylor.

Answers Parlier's sister, now living in Illinois, says can't come soon enough.

In June 2005, the then 21-year-old who was pregnant told her family she was going for a walk near their Urbandale home. It was the last time anyone saw or heard from her.

"Any small clue could possibly lead to ending this nightmare and that's really the only word you can use. This has been a two year nightmare. Not having any answers, not knowing," said Parlier’s sister.

While police say this search didn't turn up any new evidence, Parlier's family is hopeful somebody knows something about the case and will come forward, shedding light on what really happened.

"If you see her, if you remember seeing her two years ago, if you remember seeing her a year ago, if you know something happened to her, I mean this is just... it's been the hardest 2 years ever," said her sister.

While this search didn't pan out, investigators stress it's still an open case. If you have any information, police want to hear from you.

Details of Disappearance

Ashley was last seen on June 12, 2005 in Urbandale, Michigan (near Battle Creek), walking away from her parents' home after a supposed argument. Police received a tip that she may have gone to a nearby swamp ina suicidal state. A search of the swamp near Bedford and Morgan roads yielded no clues. Ashley had little contact with her friends in the couple of months prior to her disappearance. Described as a homebody, she does not have a car nor a driver's license. Investigators have received other information that she may have been camping near Houghton Lake after she was reported missing, but no one recalls seeing her there.

In May 2007, law enforcement officers spent several hours combing through a woods on the south side of Battle Creek. The area searched included the woods at the west end of Riverside Parkway and bordered by Territorial Road on the north and Grand Boulevard on the west.

Officers declined to say if any evidence was found.

Five years later, Ashley Parlier still missing
Few clues in woman's disappearance

Trace Christenson • The Enquirer • October 6, 2010

Russell and Sharie Parlier will celebrate the birthday of their missing daughter with a candle and a prayer.

Ashley Parlier of Battle Creek would have been 27 on Oct. 16. Instead she has been missing for more than five years and investigators have few clues why.

"October 16th is a pretty tough day," Russell Parlier said Tuesday. "We light a candle and sit and pray for her safe return."

They may pray but Parlier admits he doesn't think his daughter is alive, speculating she might have been kidnapped and sold as a sex slave or even killed for her organs.

Parlier said he and his wife had a discussion with Ashley on June 12, 2005 -- the day she disappeared -- because they believed she was pregnant.

"We confronted her about being pregnant and told her 'we know you are pregnant and should go to the doctor and get some prenatal care.' We knew she was pregnant. She is a tiny little thing and you get that pouch in your abdomen when you are three or four months pregnant."

Investigators for the Battle Creek Police Department have called that confrontation an argument and say that Ashley Parlier then left the house and disappeared. But her father said it was simply a family discussion and that she went for a walk, as she did frequently.

Her sister said Ashley sometimes stayed with friends so the family didn't immediately report her as missing for a week. Police said her parents didn't notify the department until July 8.

"You don't think this is ever going to happen to your family," said Ashley's sister, Nicole Parlier, 30, of Peoria, Illinois. "She wanted to cool off and she was just not coming home. But my father's 50th birthday was that weekend and when she didn't call for dad's birthday that is what freaked us out. This was not normal."

Ashley Parlier was shy and quiet and had been working at Taco Bell at 821 Capital Ave. N.E. for about a year before she disappeared, according to her sister.

"She had a learning disability," said Nicole Parlier. "She was 21 but mentally I wouldn't put her over 15 or 16. She was starting to break out with her job and we were happy that she had done that."

Her sister, who moved from Battle Creek when she was 18, said Ashley and her parents had a normal parent-child relationship.

"They were thrilled she was working and she lived with them. They would do a lot of things together. On her 21st birthday they took her out to celebrate and when my dad went bowling she would go along," Nicole Parlier said. "She and my mom were real close."

Police have conducted several searches since the woman's disappearance from her home on Bedford Road. But Detective Sgt. Austin Simons said investigators have few leads into her disappearance and said there have been few tips over the years.

The case remains a missing person investigation but "we have not had any further leads," he said Tuesday.

Police did go to the home a month ago and conducted a search and have conducted a number of interviews with family and friends over the years. The case file sitting on Simons' desk is nearly three inches thick.

"If we get a tip we go out and search," Detective Maria Alonzo said. "But we haven't had any new information of late."

Private investigator Jim Carlin of Battle Creek has donated his services to the family and is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the missing woman.

"We are just trying to bring her home," Carlin said. "I really believe if she can be found there will be enough for the police to figure out what happened. It is such a sad thing. I just hope we can get a little interest in the case."

Family members said Ashley's birthday and the holidays are always difficult.

"The biggest thing is to keep the hope that she is going to come home," Nicole Parlier said. "It's hard when it's been five years to keep that hope. I just want answers. Any answer would be better than no answer. It has always been the thing that keeps you up at night -- what happened."

For Russell Parlier and his wife, the last years have been hell, he said.

"Every time there is a holiday or a birthday she goes into a crying fit and I spend all day trying to get her out of it," he said. "It's the same thing for me. It is hard to stay positive not knowing anything."
