Mankato officials are asking for the public's help to find a 33-year-old woman who has been reported missing.

Jessica Ann Scofield, of Mankato, was last seen at 11:30 a.m. Monday on North Victory Drive, a news release says. The Blue Earth County Sheriff's Office told the Mankato Free Press it is possible she's in the Lake Crystal area.

Investigators have information that she may be heading toward the Twin Cities metro area, KEYC reports.

Officials say she is a "vulnerable adult and needs to be found as soon as possible for her safety." Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call 911.

Scofield has blond hair and blue eyes. She stands 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 145 pounds. She was last seen wearing a pink jacket and blue jeans.

It's unknown if she is on foot or in a vehicle, the Mankato Free Press notes.

Temperatures plummeted to around 10 below zero in Mankato Monday night, according to Weather Underground.
