Missing Michigan woman told friend she had been in a shootout with two men before she vanished — but no blood is found at the scene

Authorities have released new information about the investigation into the disappearance of Adrienne Quintal, who vanished from her family’s cabin in Honor, Michigan, last month.

As MLive reports, police arrived to Quintal’s family cabin in the early morning hours of October 17, after a friend of the woman contacted police to say that Quintal had called them moments before, appearing to be in distress. Citing newly released information from the Benzie County Sheriff’s office, the report revealed that the friend initially gave authorities an incorrect address. Police arrived to that address within 10 minutes of the call, but it was another 30 minutes before they were able to track down the correct location.

Quintal, 47, who is from Warren, reportedly told her friend during the 2:34 a.m. call on October 17 that she had been involved in a gunfight with two unidentified men. She told her friend that one of the men had been shooting at her, and that she had shot the second man in the face. When police arrived to the cabin, it was empty, and while authorities observed bullet holes, they did not find blood inside the cabin–though they did find a handgun registered to Quintal along with her phone and her purse.

“Officers observed multiple bullet holes in the window of the cabin and searched the area around the cabin for any injured persons or evidence of injured persons,” police said, according to the report. 

Authorities reportedly determined that the gun was fired from inside the cabin. After obtaining a search warrant, police sent the shell casings to a lab for examination.

There do not appear to be any further leads on Quintal’s whereabouts, and her family is reportedly offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to her.

Anyone who may have been in contact with or seen Quintal is urged to contact the Benzie County Central Dispatch at 231-882-4487, or Michigan State Police’s Silent Observer at 866-774-2345.
