The family of a missing West Michigan girl is hoping for answers as they continue their search.

Mercadeys Overbeek left her home in Delton one week ago on April 3. The 16-year old said she was meeting a friend who relatives believed to be from Kalamazoo, but later learned the online friend was from Florida.

Her mother tells Fox 17 that Mercadeys left a suicide note.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Barry County Sheriff's Department at (269) 948-4801.
