Police searching for missing women believed to be in danger, one last seen in Taneytown

Maryland State Police are searching for Heather Grogg, left, and Danielle Tyler. Anyone with information of their whereabouts should contact the Westminster barrack at 410-386-3000.

Maryland State Police are looking for two women who may be traveling together.

Police at the Westminster barrack want to speak with Heather Grogg, 33, and Danielle Tyler, 18, according to a social media post shared by the state police Monday.


Tyler was last seen in Taneytown on April 6, according to the post.

“Since the initial missing person reports were taken by the Maryland State Police, Danielle Tyler and Heather Grogg have been considered to be critically missing and in danger,” Greg Shipley, Maryland State Police spokesperson, wrote in an email Tuesday. “We cannot be more specific about why we believe this, due to the impact the release of investigative information at this time could have on ongoing investigations.”


Shipley wrote that the search for these women has not stopped since they were reported missing. State police are working with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, both in and outside of Maryland, in the search, he said.

Grogg is described as a white woman with red hair, blue eyes, 5 feet 2 inches tall, and weighing about 175 pounds.

Tyler is described as a white woman with blonde hair (though she is known to change her hair color), green eyes, 5 feet 3 inches tall, and weighing about 110 pounds. She has “snake bite” piercings on either side of her lower lip, a small nose ring in both sides of her nose, and is known to wear wrist accessories such as bracelets and hair ties.

Anyone that has information or knows the whereabouts of Grogg or Tyler is asked to call the Westminster barrack at 410-386-3000.
