The family of a missing Oakdale woman is holding a fundraiser Saturday to raise more reward money for information about the case, KARE 11 reports.

Danielle Jelinek, 27, has been missing since December.

According to authorities, she was last seen at the home of her ex-boyfriend, Aaron Schnagl.

Schnagl, who is a person of interest in the case, is currently serving a prison term after pleading guilty to drug charges in February.

The family is holding the fundraiser at the Dog House Bar and Grill in Maplewood Saturday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. There are fees to get in to the event, which will also raise money through a bake sale and silent auction. There will also be music at the event.

Currently the reward is at $1,000 for more information in the case. A Facebook page has been set up for updates about the family's search efforts.

A benefit fund has also been set up at the following:
