Justice for Derrick Henagan

      Wheres Derrick Henagan

      Lake, MI

Derrick Henagan has not been seen since August 4, 2008, when he went missing in the Newberry area in the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
At the time of Derrick Henagan's disappearance—which is considered suspicious—Derrick Henagan was living in a residence along North Manistique Lake Road, south of the village of McMillan Michigan.
According to witness accounts, Derrick Henagan was last seen walking into the woods across from a neighbor's house.
Derrick Henagan was reportedly planning on meeting Derrick's estranged girlfriend (which was pregnant at the time with his child) at a prearranged location in the woods.
When she arrived at the location, Derrick Henagan was no where to be found. Derrick Henagan has not been heard from or seen since.
There has never been a proper search done for our son Derrick Henagan by the Michigan State Police, They have NEVER issued any search warrants on either residence that Derrick Henagan was last known to be at, And Betty was told by the Prosecutor that the guy had his reasons for them to not issue a search warrant. The family has been told by the Prosecutor that they would have to wait till after deer hunting season for him to do anything ( almost 4 years later and 4 deer season's still nothing).Betty Henagan was recently told by the Prosecutor that SHE needed to offer immunity because the next Prosecutor will not do nothing with THIER son's case. Derrick Henagan has children and they deserve to know what happen to their father,  Derrick Henagan's parents deserve to know what happen to Thier son. Also we have been told they will not follow up on tips unless they are told whom the tips are from to check creditably, then why does crime stoppers say they can remain anonymous? All we want is answer's for The disappearance of our son Derrick Henagan, Please sign our petition and help us hold all of those mentioned accountable. This isn't the first time a petition has been done to get justice and a proper investigation in Newberry Michigan, Luce County.

      This petition is very important, There are reason's I cant talk about right now. But what I can say is if we put the support behind this and make sure that Derrick's case is really investigated we will get the answer's we really need, there are people out there that hasn't been questioned in the U.P. that has some answer's..These people need to be questioned. there is tips that drastically needs to be checked on and followed up on fully.I have spoke with Derrick's Detective, And he is a really great guy, But there are things with Derrick's case that was left hanging when our last Detective left. Which is hard to believe, Because he was such a great detective as well, I truly believe that the lack of falls on the Prosecutor as well as funding that the State Police have and don't have.

      We held a wonderful vigil for Derrick Henagan yesterday in his home town of Hartford Michigan, Just as the vigil was coming to an end Derrick's children was lighting their lanterns for their dad, As the wind started to blow and the lanterns was filling up the wind picked up a little more, They let their lanterns off one by one and one by one they both headed north, We find it amazing for 2 reason's one Derrick went missing in the Northern Peninsula of Michigan and 2 the wind was blowing east. Please keep sharing this petition with your friends and family and get them signatures. We are so thankful for all of your signatures we have so far. I was with 2 of the most amazing children yesterday at Derrick Henagan's vigil and that was his daughter Taylor and son Raycer and they deserve to know what happen to their daddy...

    10. Justice Derrick Henagan's petition has been extended 8/20/22012

      Wheres Derrick Henagan
      Petition Organizer

      We have extended this petition in hopes to get more signature's and awareness on Derrick Henagan's case, We hope and pray that no other family in Luce county will ever have to go thru what the family of Derrick Henagan's family has. In May Betty Henagan attended a missing person's event in Grand Rapids Michigan, Several of the people could not believe that Derrick Henagan's case had not been solved. There was only so many people that seen Derrick Henagan in the last 12 hours before Derrick went missing, There was only 2 homes that Derrick had been to in the last 12 hours before he went missing, And the ex girlfriend did tell Betty Henagan that Derrick came home to her that night....Betty asked the girlfriend well then where is my son, And Betty and the girlfriend has not got along since....

      Please help the Family get Justice for Derrick Henagan.

      It's time Derrick's case is taken seriously so he can come home, and those involved are brought to justice. There has to be someone who is not afraid to get involved, someone who cannot be bribed or threatened. It's ovious what more or less happened and there has to be an end put to this case finally.
