ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Anchorage police are releasing few details in the case of a barista missing now for more than four weeks.

However, they say they are making headway into the disappearance of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig.

Police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker told the Anchorage Daily News ( ) that investigators believe they are getting closer each day to finding the woman.

Koenig was working at Common Grounds Espresso on Feb. 1 when video surveillance shows a man holding a weapon walk up to the coffee stand just before closing time. Police say Koenig appears frightened in the video. She was last seen walking away on foot with the man.

Koenig's father set up a reward fund, which has risen to between $65,000 and $70,000, for information leading to her safe return.
