Benzie County sheriff's deputies and state police continue to search for a Metro Detroit woman who disappeared from northern Michigan last week, officials said.

On Saturday, deputies and volunteers searched the area surrounding the house in Honor, Mich., where Adrienne Quintal was last seen, they said.

Officials said they have not been able to locate Adrienne Quintal, who had traveled from Warren to a family cabin in Honor, Mich.

"The search did not turn up any new evidence supporting any theories around the recent disappearance of Adrienne," the sheriff's office said in a statement Tuesday.

"Investigators from the Benzie County Sheriff's Office and the Michigan State Police are following up on leads and tips. Investigators are also conducting further interviews of witnesses in both Benzie County and Southeast Michigan. There is no additional information to report at this time."

Police said Quintal, 47, called a person in Warren at about 2:45 a.m. Thursday and asked for help. The person called the Benzie County Sheriff's Office, according to authorities.
