Three people have been arrested in connection to the month long disappearance of a teenage girl in Alexandria. The teen's escape comes after having gone missing a month ago from her rural home in Grant County.
Police arrested Thomas Barker, 32, Joshua Holby, 31, and Steven Powers, 20, who are all being held in the Douglas County jail on probable cause of kidnapping, false imprisonment and assault.
It was on August 9 at 1:18 a.m. that Sara Block contacted Alexandria Police and reported her daughter, Jasmine, was missing.
It is understood Barker convinced Block to get into a vehicle.
When the two got to his house, his roommate Holby and friend Powers restrained her with zip ties and assaulted her. She claims that Barker and Powers had sex with her on multiple occasions, but Holby did not.
"This is an unbelievable young woman", Wyffels said.
Toward the end of last week, the men took Block from the house "to different areas including a cornfield and an abandoned property in Grant County", Wyffels said.
The girl got away after the men went to grab lunch, leaving her alone for the first time, according to the Pioneer Press.
Authorities said that the 15-year-old was acquainted with at least one of the suspects. Once back on dry land, she then asked a farmer to help her.
"These assaults continued over the several weeks she was being held", the statement read. During her time with the suspects, Wyffels said they kept her in a closet or other location where she couldn't be seen or heard.
The girl's safe return came a day after an anonymous donor added $5,000 to a $2,000 reward for information leading to her safe return. Sarah wrote. "I also ask to respect Jasmine myself and her sisters as we have been apart 4 weeks and it's been a lot so give space".
It shows the 15-year-old wrapped in a blue blanket, standing next to her mother with a slight smile on her face. She was found alive and well bearing "minor" injuries some 40 miles from her home in Alexandria. Jasmine's case was featured in Dateline's Missing in America series days after she disappeared.
"She is overjoyed that her daughter is home", said Taylor. "She had a lot of strength and we are so proud of her".
