An Alexandria, Minn., teen who was missing for almost a month was found Tuesday with minor injuries, and authorities arrested three people in connection with her disappearance. Her family told police that Block disappeared without her phone, keys and a backpack she normally carried. "Thank you god and thank you for all the prayers and support and many thanks to law enforcement", her mother, Sarah Block, wrote on Facebook Tuesday. All were believed to be from out of town.
