Police in Armada, Mich., a rural tow 35 miles northeast of Detroit, are investigating the murder of a 14-year-old girl.

The night victim April Millsap went missing, an ominous text message was sent from her phone to her boyfriend that read: “OMG… I think I’m being kidnapped.”

“I can confirm that that message was sent out,” Armada Police Chief Howard Smith told WJBK. “We’re taking it with that in mind, however we just know that it came from April’s cell phone. Other than that, we’re not commenting.”

Last week, Millsap was walking her family’s border collie near Macomb Orchard Trail. According to, two joggers saw the dog, who was standing guard over Millsap’s body, and called police.

Police have not said how they think Millsap was killed, only confirming they know she was not shot or stabbed. The cause of her death will not be released until the killer is arrested and charged.

The girl’s boyfriend and her family members have been interviewed “but they are not considered suspects in her death,” reports.

Police have received over 500 tips about the girl’s death. Cops are now searching for a male suspect with “sandy brown or reddish hair.”
