St. Paul Police on Friday unveiled a new tip line (651-560-3277) that they had hoped would generate valuable leads in the case of Kira Trevino, the 30-year-old St. Paul woman who is missing and presumed dead. So far, police have received 12 tips, the Pioneer Press reported.

"Obviously, it's a wide range of types of information that we're getting," police spokesman Howie Padilla told the Pioneer Press on Monday. "The good news is that we obviously have a community out there that is paying attention and is sharing in our interest to do everything possible to find Kira Trevino."

Trevino's husband Jeffery Trevino, 39, reported his wife missing Feb. 24 and police arrested him Tuesday.

He was charged last week with second-degree murder in the case.

Police said they're looking for tips about Jeffery Trevino's whereabouts from 9 p.m. Feb. 21 until 9:45 a.m. Feb. 22, and they want to talk to anyone who saw Kira Trevino's car, a white 2006 four-door Chevrolet Cobalt with license plate XCC-572, during that time.

Police recovered the car at the Mall of America, where Kira Trevino worked.

Nearly 200 people attended a vigil for Kira Trevino on Friday.
