A woman has gone missing from a remote cabin in Michigan after making a distressing call to a friend for help, police say.
Michigan State Police report that Adrienne Quintal, 47, made the call to a contact in Warren at around 2.45am on Thursday and the person on the other end of the line immediately contacted law enforcement.
Cops showed up to the family property in Honor around 13 minutes later at 2.58am but couldn’t find Quintal who had spent time there with her boyfriend who was not identified.
‘He was up there with her, he came home to drop supplies off, we are working on the condo here,’ her son Nick White told Fox 2. ‘She was also just getting ready for hunting and hanging out and enjoying the wildlife.’

Officers said Friday that they ‘observed evidence of possible foul play’ but it wasn’t clear whether the woman – who goes by the name Ada – ‘is missing voluntarily or in danger’.
Quintal left behind her ‘personal property, including her vehicle, cellphone, and purse,’ Belize County Sheriff’s Office stated.
Her son said Quintal’s boyfriend had returned Tuesday to their home in Southfield. The couple had been working on a project at the cabin up north.
The Sheriff’s Office and Michigan State Police conducted a K-9 track and ground search of the area, ‘without success’ and on Saturday the Benzie County Office of Emergency Management and the Benzie-Manistee Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) looked in the area surrounding the residence as part of a group of 20 people.

‘We were actually searching almost like the back swampy area from Little Platte Lake up into some very thick hunting woods along Indian Hill Road,’ CERT public information officer Glenn Zaring told 9 & 10 News.
‘We spent the entire day Saturday up until about 4.30pm, actually going out doing sweeps of these areas.’
The team has a sophisticated system to help them figure out where someone could be.
Now family and friends of Quintal have not heard from her since the call.
Images from ABC 7 showed the remote area where people had searched over the past five days.
‘The search did not turn up any new evidence supporting any theories around the recent disappearance of Adrienne,’ authorities said in an update on Tuesday.
‘Investigators from the Benzie County Sheriff’s Office and the Michigan State Police are following up on leads and tips called into the Sheriff’s Office. Investigators are also conducting further interviews of witnesses in both Benzie County and Southeast Michigan.’

White has been trying to find out what happened to his mother by sharing information locally, ‘Even if it was a simple conversation at the tractor supply store,’ he said.
Loved ones have taken it upon themselves to look beyond the search area authorities covered.
‘We’ve covered most of the ground and haven’t found her yet,’ he said.
Tuesday searchers sent out drones to scan the area.
Quintal is a white female with long brown hair and brown eyes. She is approximately 5’7′ weighing 125lbs.
The incident is currently under investigation.
