Friends, family hold vigil for missing Oakdale woman


Friends and family held a vigil Monday night for 27-year-old Danielle Jelinek more than a week after she disappeared, WCCO reported.

The Oakdale woman was last seen Dec. 9 at a house in Chisago Township. Police have been talking to her on-again, off-again boyfriend 28-year-old Aaron Schnagl, of Chisago Lake Township, as a "person of interest" in the case. He was arrested on a drug charge.

Warrant documents indicate trace evidence of blood were found in his home. He has told investigators that he spent that Saturday evening with Jelinek, and that they had numerous drinks and sex at his home. But Jelinek was gone when he woke up at 9:30 a.m., Schnagl told investigators.

Hundreds of volunteers have been looking for her.
