Updated: 05/18/2013 3:39 PM By: Cassie Hart

More searches continued this weekend for the Eden Prairie woman who has been missing since May 1.

24-year-old Mandy Matula was last seen with David Roe, her ex-boyfriend. He shot himself when he was asked by police to come in for questioning in Matula’s disappearance. He later died from his injuries and police were never able to question him further.

Volunteers were searching in Eden Prairie and St. Cloud Saturday.

According to the Minnesota United Facebook page, groups planned to meet in Eden Prairie and St. Cloud Saturday morning.

Authorities have conducted past searches in Chanhassen, Victoria, northwest Stearns County and Hennepin County. Those are the areas where Roe had his cell phone signal ping off towers, according to police.

A fundraiser is also set for Saturday. The Eden Prairie Power Nutrition fundraiser will be from 12-4 p.m. at 16374 Wagner Way, Eden Prairie. Money will go to the Mandy Matula Fund.
