At a news conference Friday, officials said they had reduced their person-of-interest list to three people. Sunday, officials updated their report, looking for details about a white 2016 Ford Mustang driven between midnight Oct. 12 and the next morning. The owner of that car was interviewed and released.
Officials originally spoke with Verk’s boyfriend, who has since hired an attorney and has not cooperated.
A reward up to $100,000 has been set up for anyone with information on Verk, who is from the Coppell-Keller area and is a member of Congregation Kol Ami.
Glenn and Lori Verk asked for anyone with information to contact Alpine police at 432-837-3486.
