The ground search has been called off in Chisago County for an Oakdale woman who was reported missing.

Twenty-seven-year -old Danielle Jelinek hasn't been seen or heard from in several weeks.
Chisago County Investigator Ryan Edmonds says all relevant areas have been thoroughly searched and no new areas of interest have been established. They’re still following up on various tips and leads that have been coming in, he said.

Family had contacted police to do a welfare check at the home of Jelinek's on-again/off-again friend, 28-year-old Aaron Schnagl. That's where she was last seen. His home is located on the 11200 block of 261st Street.

Deputies found her purse, shoes and cell phone inside the house. Sheriff Rick Duncan said that Schnagl is now a "person of interest" in the investigation.

Schnagl was arrested for drug possession when his home was searched
