Volunteers Search Area For Missing Woman [AUDIO]
ST. CLOUD — Volunteers continue to search the local area for a missing 24-year-old woman from Eden Prairie.
It has been more than two weeks since Mandy Matula was last seen. Volunteers focused along the Mississippi River, Saturday, starting at Riverside Park.
Despite the dreary weather, people came to bring closure to the Matula family. One volunteer says she is searching because she has kids and can sympathize with the family. Other volunteers say they are searching because it could have easily been anyone, including themselves.
Matula was last seen leaving her family’s home with David Roe on May 1st. Roe, a St. Cloud State Student, shot himself in the Eden Prairie Police Department’s parking lot May 2nd, he later died before speaking with police.
A phone call from Roe’s cell phone was detected by cell towers between St. Cloud and Sartell during the time Matula went missing and Roe’s death.
Additional searches for the missing woman were held on Saturday in the Eden Prairie area.
