Have you seen this woman? Police in Grand Rapids, Michigan said they received a tip that may link an old cold case to our area. They released a photo of Dean Pyle Peters at age 15 when she disappeared, and another photo of what she may look like now at age 49.

Peters went missing February 5, 1981 from a middle school in Grand Rapids where she was attending her little brother's wrestling practice with her mother. She was last seen walking out of the gym to go to the restroom. 

New tips have been coming in since Peters was featured as the February missing child of the month on the Justice Network. One of those tips came from someone who said she is living in the Dayton area.

Anyone with information should contact the Kent County Sheriff's Department missing persons unit at 616-336-3113.
