The search for a missing Eden Prairie woman is entering its fourth week.

Mandy Matula was last seen May 1; since then, family, friends, and strangers have scoured areas from the metro to St. Cloud.

Thursday afternoon, Minnesota United held a news conference focusing on the need for volunteers to search this weekend. The search began at 9:30 a.m. Saturday in Rice, which is north of St. Cloud.

The group searched two locations: the Blanchard Dam and Mississippi Park in Rice.

Searchers were asked to wear a bright-colored T-shirt.

The group also announced a fundraiser at Brunswick Bowl in Eden Prairie. It will take place Monday, June 3, from 5 to 9 p.m.

Matula’s ex-boyfriend, David Roe, shot and killed himself before police could question him.
