The search for a 15-year-old Alexandria girl is nearly a week old and police want help identifying three people seen with Jasmine Block the day before she disappeared.
Last week's police bulletin explains that Jasmine was last seen at her home at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8. She made contact with a friend at 11 p.m. but has not been seen nor heard from since then.
In an update on Tuesday police reported several people interviewed by investigators said on the afternoon of Aug. 7 Jasmine was in Alexandria with two other teenagers and a man in his 30s. Police suspect the three were from out of town and say all were on bicycles.
Anyone with information should call Alexandria police at 320-763-6631.
Police say they've talked to dozens of people. They're putting together a timeline of what Jasmine was doing in the early morning hours of Aug. 9 but still have gaps in that timeline.
Jasmine Block is 5-foot-1 and weighs 110 pounds, authorities say. She has brown curly hair, pierced ears, and scars on her left arm. She left home without her phone or any belongings.
Jasmine's mother, Sarah Block, is offering a $1,000 reward for the safe return of her daughter, the Alexandria Echo Press reports.
Family and friends plan to meet Wednesday at 3 p.m. for a ground search starting at Big Ole Central Park in Alexandria, Sarah Block told the newspaper.
Investigators have already searched areas including some woods near her home and a nearby gravel pit.
Sarah Block told Southern Minnesota News last week she suspects foul play in her daughter's disappearance and believes Jasmine is still alive.
