3 arrested in case of missing Alexandria teen

ALEXANDRIA, Minn. - Alexandria police say three arrests have been made in the case of a 15-year-old girl missing for nearly a month.

Police issued a press release saying Jasmine Block was found in rural Grant County on Tuesday. She is being treated for minor injuries at the Douglas County Hospital and has been reunited with her family, police said.

Later on Tuesday, police announced that three people have been arrested in connection to Block's disappearance.

Block left her home on the 200 block of North McKay Avenue in Alexandria sometime after 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 8 and has been missing ever since. Her family told police that Block disappeared without her phone, keys and a backpack she normally carried. Her bike and scooter were also left at home.

Police had been trying to identify two teens and a man in his 30s that friends said they witnessed riding bikes with Block on Aug. 7, the day before she disappeared. All were believed to be from out of town.

There was a $7,000 reward for information leading to Block's safe return.

Several agencies, including the FBI, have been searching for Block for almost a full month. Alexandria police say the case is still under investigation and that more information will be released Wednesday.

Police say the public is not at risk.
