EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Eden Prairie police have released a clearer description as to where the person-of-interest in the disappearance of Mandy Matula was in the hours after she was last seen.

Police are reviewing both physical and electronic evidence from items including David Marshall Roe's vehicle, cell phone and computer, as well as his home and financial records.

"We hope to narrow down this very wide search area," said Chief Reynolds. "We hope to give community members specific places to help look."

This evidence has led police to search in targeted areas around Eden Prairie, Carver County and Stearns County.

Police said that cell phone and financial records show that Roe stopped at a Maple Grove Standard station and purchased gas at around 4 a.m. on Thursday.

On Saturday, a volunteer search near Eden Prairie Road and Scenic Heights Road discovered an unfired piece of ammunition, which is consistent with the type of handgun and ammunition found on Roe.

Eden Prairie police said they have received a tremendous amount of support from the community. They said they greatly value the leads and tips which continue to pour in, and they will continue to search the targeted areas.

"I am overwhelmed by the show of support," said Steven Matula, Mandy's brother."There are no words to say. We are committed to finding her and I don't care if it takes one month or four years."

Anyone with information on Matula's whereabouts, or who may have seen her with David Roe on Wednesday evening is asked to call the Eden Prairie Police Department at 952-949-6200.
