Reward climbs to $7,000 for information on Alexandria teen missing for 25 days

Jasmine Block was last seen Aug. 8.

The reward for information that leads to a missing 15-year-old girl's safe return has grown to $7,000. 

Jasmine Block was last seen at her Alexandria home the night of Aug. 8. She was at home at 10:30 p.m. that night, but hasn't been heard from since. 

And now there's a $7,000 reward for information that leads to Block's return. This comes after someone who wants to remain anonymous donated $5,000 in hopes of getting someone to come forward with any information about the missing teen, the Alexandria Police Department said Friday

Investigators continue to ask the public to search their property and nearby areas for anything that looks out of place or unusual. 

"No information is too insignificant. It may be the piece we need to find Jasmine," police said. 

Jasmine is 5-foot-1 and weighs 110 pounds, authorities say. She has brown curly hair, pierced ears, and scars on her left arm.

Anyone with information on where Jasmine may be is asked to contact police, either by calling the department at 320-763-6631; sending a message to police on Facebook; or emailing 

Little information as to what happened

Not much is known about what happened to Block. 

Sarah Block, Jasmine's mom, spoke to Dateline recently, saying Jasmine was boating with neighbors on Aug. 8, but came home with a migraine. 

Sarah Block said she left that night for a family emergency, and when she got home her daughter was gone. 

Many of Jasmine Block's belongings were left behind, including her phone, keys and purse. The only thing missing was a pair of her shoes, Sarah Block told Dateline. 

Police asked for help identifying three people Jasmine Block was with the day before she went missing. GoMN has reached out to police to see if they've identified any of those people, but haven't heard back yet.
