#MISSING: Chelsea Bruck, 22 - Monroe County, MICHIGAN

"I still can't believe this is happening," said Julie Hammac who told her friend Chelsea Bruck that she didn't want to go to the big Halloween party in a rural part of Monroe County Saturday night.
Another friend drove Bruck, 22, to the party in Newport that lasted into the early hours of Sunday morning, but Bruck hasn't been seen since.
"Too big of a party, too dangerous," is what Hammac told 7 Action News why she didn't want to go to the Halloween party where hundreds were expected and almost 800 showed up. "And I even told her it was dangerous, but she was there for her friends and we just want her back."
Heather Brooks, another one of Chelsea's friends and coworker at Olga's in Monroe, did go to the party. "I did not see Chelsea at the party at all. I got there late and I looked around and I couldn't see her," said Brooks
"It was the most unsafe I've ever felt at one of Big Mike's parties," said Brooks outside of Olga's where there are missing fliers posted with Bruck's picture and a phone number for information in the case.
"There were fights broken out. There were just too many people and I didn't know anyone," said a teary-eyed Brooks.
"Big Mike" refers to Mike Williams who has hosted the large party every year. Williams, who has been cooperative with investigators, posted on Facebook shortly after the party how stressful the night was "because of a few (expletive)." Williams told 7 Action News earlier this week that he had to kick some people out of the party that was held on several acres outside his house in Newport.
On Thursday, as Monroe County Sheriff detectives continued to investigate leads in Chelsea's disappearance, her family and friends continued to search the rural acres for any sign of her.
Complete strangers joined the volunteer search that is being organized on Williams' property on Post Road near Williams Road.
Earlier this week, investigators released a sketch of a man that a witness reportedly saw with Chelsea around the time of the party walking to an area of parked cars.
A witness describes the man as white with a medium build, medium length dark hair, and a thin mustache. He was wearing a plain black hooded sweatshirt and black framed eyeglasses.
Anyone with any information in the case is urged to call the Monroe County Sheriff's 24 hour dispatch line at (734)243-7070.
