Police said in a previous statement that, according to a preliminary investigation, the teen was approached by Barker, whom she knew, outside her home around 11 p.m. on August 8 "on the pretense that he needed help with a situation". "She has her therapy dog and is playing with her friends again".

"Today we witnessed an incredible example of kindness", the Alexandria Police Department posted on Facebook later, describing Melchert as "the man who made the call everyone was waiting for" on the day he spotted the girl. "What no one expected was the kindness and generosity that came straight from Earl's heart today".

This award was funded by the Block family and an anonymous donor.

Mr Melchart told local media that "he did what I had to do".

"Jasmine is in school and they're adding more classes", Sarah told the Pioneer Press. On Sept. 5, the men went to get food, leaving her alone for the first time. It went national. It was on posters, in stores, her face, her picture. 'And they said it would be about an hour. Earl Melchert, 65, was reportedly driving back to work in Elbow Lake when he noticed something moving in the field that he first thought was a deer. He told Wyffels in a phone call that he "could use that money more now than ever", the police chief recounted during the presentation, "but it wouldn't be right".

"I could make out her face, and I went, "Oh my gosh, this is the girl from Alexandria that's been gone for 29 days", he said. He restrained Block with zip ties, repeatedly assaulted her and threatened her with weapons, police said.

According to investigators, Barker, who suffers from cerebral palsy, admitted he was on methamphetamine and booze. She was found about 20 miles from her home.

Jasmine's mother Sarah Block paid homage to her daughter's saviour.

Wyffels called Melchert a "hero" at a meeting with Melchert and Block's family on Friday.

"We can't thank you enough for what you did", the mother told Melchert on Friday.

Amazingly, Jasmine was even able to help the police seize her perpetrators by identifying their auto nearby. "He risked a lot of things and put himself in danger".

She also hailed the bravery of her daughter for the pain that she had to endure during her time in captivity.

The teenager knocked on the doors of several houses without anyone answering, before deciding to complete the swim and reach Mr Melchert's residence, the New York Times reported.

"I was usually in a closet and I usually stayed quiet because I was scared they might hit me or do something", she said, according to Fox 9.
