ALPINE, Texas (AP) — The family of a missing Sul Ross State University student says the reward for information leading to her whereabouts or safe return has grown to $100,000.

Alpine police say searchers in the air, on foot and on horseback are looking for 22-year-old Zuzu Verk of the Fort Worth area. The junior has been missing since Oct. 12.

Sul Ross State has about 2,100 students. President Bill Kibler on Thursday released a statement saying Verk’s disappearance has deeply affected the entire campus community, plus the surrounding area.

School spokesman Steve Lang on Friday said students, faculty and staff have taken part in voluntary searches coordinated through Alpine police.

Investigators have said Verk could be in danger. Police didn’t release additional details.

Alpine is 210 miles southeast of El Paso.
