Though no new breakthroughs have been made in the disappearance of 21-year-old Erika Dalquist, Brainerd police investigators believe her case isn't connected to the disappearances of three other people in Minnesota and Wisconsin since Oct. 30.
The FBI has reviewed the case file, Brainerd Police Investigator Chad Kleffman said, but agreed with the police department's opinion that, with the current facts of the case, Dalquist's disappearance isn't related to the recent disappearances of 20-year-old Josh Guimond from Collegeville, 21-year-old Christopher Jenkins from Minneapolis and 22-year-old Michael Noll from Eau Claire, Wis.
Dalquist was last seen Oct. 30 with a white male with brown hair outside of Tropical Nites bar in downtown Brainerd near South Eighth and Laurel streets.
Anyone with information concerning the disappearance of Dalquist is asked to call the Brainerd Police Department at (218) 829-2805 or leave a tip at a Web site set up for Dalquist, http://www.erikasmissing.com/.
A reward of up to $10,000 has been offered for information leading to the recovery of Dalquist. Donations for Dalquist's reward fund can be sent to Jane Loftis at the Security State Bank, P.O. Box 7, Pillager, MN 56473, or by calling (218) 746-3131.
