Alexandria police say three people have been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a 15-year-old girl. She was last seen Aug. 8 and located safe with minor injuries on Sept. 5 in rural Grant County.

The identities of those three individuals who were arrested in connection with the teenager's disappearance are not being released at this time.  Authorities say it could jeopardize ongoing efforts in the investigation.

More information is expected to be released Wednesday.

Jasmine Block's mother told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS in August that her daughter had left all of her belongings, including her phone, at home the night she disappeared and that was very unlike her.

Tuesday night's release said Alexandria police are working in conjunction with the FBI, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, the Douglas County Sheriff's Department, the Grant County Sheriff's Department, the Pope County Sheriff's Department and the Glenwood Police Department.

Police had been trying to locate or identify a small group of people she was with about 1 p.m. Aug. 7 near the Burger King and Super America at 3rd Avenue and Nokomis Street in Alexandria. 

Friends of Block's interviewed by police said they saw her with two teenagers and a man in his 30s who was balding or had closely-shaven hair, according to a news release from Police Chief Richard Wyffels.

The four were reported to be riding bikes, and police believe that the people Block was with were from out of town.
