    I used to go to Alex. Nothing around the town but farms and a ton of water (lakes).

    JB went missing from her home in a mobile home park on North McKay Avenue.

    There was a foot search of a gravel pit area near her home; there was no specific reason to believe B had gone to the gravel pit area, but its proximity to her home and evidence that the area has been visited by others made it a logical place to search.

    Still missing: http://www.echopress.com/news/431218...-still-missing

    Law enforcement officials canvassed an entire residential area Monday, Aug. 14, in the search for 15-year-old JB, who went missing late Tuesday, Aug. 8, from her home in a mobile home park on North McKay Avenue.

    "We searched the entire neighborhood, went to every residence, searched underneath and around all the trailers there just to make sure," said Alexandria Police Chief Rick Wyffels. "We're following leads that aren't panning out so far and we will continue to do so."

    Late last week, the search was expanded to include a fly-over by a plane from the Minnesota State Patrol.

    Police said: "We searched the entire neighborhood, went to every residence, searched underneath and around all the trailers there just to make sure."

    The Sheriff's Office also conducted a water search on Aug. 11 at a channel between Lake Cowdry and Lake Darling along the Central Lakes Trail.

    Family and friends of J organized searches of areas where J may have gone. Those included Lake Burgen and Viking Speedway, both spots where J's late father used to take her. The Central Lakes Trail has also been searched extensively.

    She was last seen wearing black and red pajama pants and a top. J's cell phone was left behind.

    I live right down the street. There is a dog park with a wooded area next to lake Connie. I'm not saying anything bad, but I'm going to hike it because I'm not sure if LE covered that area

    Is there many of cabins near there? I remember a ton of cabins on every lake up there. I worried about her not taking her phone.

    new "last seen" update:

    JB was last seen about 1 p.m. Monday, Aug. 7, on the Central Lakes Trail near a Burger King and Super America.

    B was with two other teenagers and a man who appeared to be in his 30s and was balding or had closely shaven hair. They were all reported to have been riding bikes and it is believed the man and teens do not live in Alexandria.

    Police ask that anyone who spent time with J in the days leading up to her disappearance to contact them.

    A search is being planned by the missing girl’s family and friends starting at 3 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 16, at Big Ole Central Park.

    A candlelight vigil will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 18, at New Life Christian Church in Alexandria.

    A $1,000 reward is being offered for B’s safe return home.

    Just thinking.... People on bikes not from the area... possibly people camping nearby? You always see people loading up bikes for a trip.
    Or, people storing bikes at their cabins?

    I used to go bike riding with people I had just met, or bike rode with my friends family. Maybe she had met them and thought they were nice?

    This "last seen" update doesn't seem correct. Her mother states she spent the day (August 8th) with neighbors on the lake, then later that evening she wasn't feeling well and went to lie down. Her mother left for a while and when she came back, J was gone.

    On the 7th it was reported that J was seen with the man and teenagers. The next day (8th) is when she actually went missing. People do not know WHO the man and teens were that J had been seen with the day prior and they'd like to know who they are in case they had info.
