    MSP Investigate Possible Colon Area Kidnapping

    Tuesday, April 27, 2010


    (COLON TOWNSHIP) - Michigan State Police are investigating the possible abduction of a woman from the Colon area on Monday. 32-year-old Venus Rose Stewart was abducted from her parents' home on Driftwood Drive between 7:10am and 8:30am. Stewart may be in the company of 29-year-old Douglas Stewart in a 1998 silver Mercury 4-door or a 2005 silver Dodge Ram pickup. Both vehicles had Virginia license plates and may be headed to Virginia. Anyone with information on their whereabouts should call the Michigan State Police.

    Venus Stewart's parents aid their daughter would have never left their home on her own accord. The McComb's are sick with worry after their daughter in her pajama's went out to put the mail in their mailbox.

    Venus had left her husband in February and he lost custody of the children.

    Ex husband said he has nothing to do with it.

    A St. Joseph County woman who police say was abducted from her parents’ home Monday had obtained an order of protection in February against her estranged husband, who she feared would kill her, court records show.

    Police initially said they believed that Venus Rose Stewart’s husband, Douglas, abducted her. They found him Monday in Newport News, Va., where he lives, but she remains missing.

    The article says he was located Monday night in Newport News. According to google maps, Colon Township is just south of Battle Creek.

    http://maps.google.com/maps?client=...85.331667&sspn=0.000000,0.000000&iwloc=A&sa=X

    That's roughly 760 miles, or almost 13 hours of drive time (per mapquest).

    ETA: the above articles are from Grand Rapids. That is about 820 miles, 13 1/2 hours drive time.

    What time Monday night was he located?

    Venus is 5'4", 130 lbs. The husband is apparently almost 6' and 250 lbs. I find it hard to believe he was physically terrorized by someone half his size.

    It means nothing that he was back home on Tuesday. Where was he Sunday and Monday? Does he have an alibi?

    She appeared to honestly believe he was going to kill her -- that it was only a matter of time. I can't even imagine how terrifying it must be to live that way!

    This may sound crazy but I would like to know what kind of "letter" was mailed. Also, did Venus have 1 of the cars and she's missing in that car? If so, someone had keys.IMO

    The article above said he was contacted by phone late Monday night, but is not specific as to what time. She was abducted between 7 and 8:30 Monday morning, so that does leave a very narrow window of time that he could have returned to VA (the drive time seems to be around 13 hours).

    As far as a husband being physically abused by his wife, that happens far more often than people realize. Size has nothing to do with it. Abuse is abuse.

    He most certainly needs to account for his whereabouts Sunday through Monday.

    I'm not willing to accept the husband's account at face value. It's not unheard of for abusers to malign their victim - making the victim appear abusive themselves, mentally unstable, suicidal, drug dependant, etc. Often, an abuser will use these tactics to maintain control, e.g. custody of the children.

    I agree though, these poor little ones...I'll keep praying.

    I don't buy his story either. She's the one who left VA, got as far away as she could.

    They contacted him by phone on Monday night -- on his land line? Or did they ping his cell? And if so, and it was "late" Monday night, say 11, that's 15 hours from when she disappeared. Plenty of time to get back.

    And how weird they can't find his vehicles? What, is he sitting at home with no vehicle? Very strange. Where does he say they are?

    I don't know what happened, of course, but when a woman tells everyone that she's afraid a particular person is going to kill her, and if she ends up dead (which I pray does NOT happen), it would be a remarkable coincidence if someone else did it.

    BBM

    "Recently, she and the couple's two young children moved back to Michigan to live with her parents. Court documents reveal this latest move was sparked by an investigation into the sexual abuse of their 5-year-old daughter.
    Douglas Stewart denies that, and said he "doesn't understand what she is doing, or what her plan is.""
