Volunteers, law enforcement search for missing Oakdale woman


Chisago County Sheriff Rick Duncan is organizing a search effort for a missing woman from Oakdale, the Star Tribune reports.

Authorities say 27-year-old Danielle Jelinek was last seen at her ex-boyfriend's home in Chisago Lake Township on Saturday.

On Sunday, deputies were called to the home to check on Jelinek's welfare and were unable to locate her, but found personal belongings including her car, purse, cell phone and car keys.

Police later excuted a search warrant and found illegal drugs. The 28-year-old man was placed under arrest and, according to WCCO, is not cooperating with police.

Jelinek is described as 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs approximately 120 pounds. She has dark brown hair and brown eyes.

KARE 11 says more than 100 family members, friends and volunteers will join law enforcement to begin a search Wednesday afternoon at Moody Park, located at Lofton and 242nd Street, close to where Jelinek was last seen.
