Man Who Helped Rescue Alexandria Teen from Kidnappers Gives Back to the Family

A family acquaintance, Thomas Barker allegedly came to the Block's house while Jasmine was home alone. Melchert saw her running across a field, recognized her, and sheltered her in his truck until police arrived.

Alexandria Police Chief Rick Wyffels also spoke, praising the community for spreading Jasmine's story quickly and widely.

"I opened the door and told him to call 911", she told Fox News 9.

She told local news: 'He's really a hero for us. "His instinct said someone needed help".

When they handed Earl the check for the reward earlier this week, however, he immediately gave it to Block.

"The reward money means absolutely nothing to me", said Melchert as he addressed Jasmine and her mother, Sarah.

"I just want to say that the good lord put me in that spot", Melchert told Block and her family on Friday.

"I've been waiting to meet him", she said. "You guys deserve it".

"What no one expected was the kindness and generosity that came straight from Earl's heart today", Wylie said on Facebook.

"Thank you, Earl", the department wrote.

When Alexandria Police Chief Richard Wyffels handed Melchert a $7,000 check on Friday, the farmer turned and gave it to the girl, along with a big hug. Earl Melchert said that Jasmine Block and her family deserved the money more than him. "Things are looking up". "[I said] 'My name is Jasmine Block and I've been kidnapped.' And he asked if I was the missing girl from Alex and I said 'yes'". "You get in a rut". But this made me look at things a lot differently. "If we all treat each other like what happened in this room, I think we're going to have a better place".

"You ran into one awesome individual in Earl Melchert", Wyffels said to Jasmine. Barker and Powers were also charged with criminal sexual conduct.

Angelina Jolie Agreed to Help Lure Out Dangerous African Warlord
We all know Angelina Jolie has always been a humanitarian activist, especially for refugees and in war-torn African countries.

She had escaped from a nearby abandoned house, where three men who abducted her had kept her for the previous few days. Block, who knew of Barker as a neighborhood acquaintance, agreed to help him and got into his auto.

Sadly, the faked "emergency" became all too real for Jasmine when a man, identified as Barker, kidnapped her from the home.

At that point, Barker allegedly drove her to his home, where "he restrained her with zip ties, repeatedly assaulted her and threatened her with weapons", police said.

The three men then took Block from the house to different locations including a cornfield and a foreclosed property. On Sept. 5, her abductors had left to get food and she managed to escape. She's probably the strongest person I have ever known'.

The girl's older sister echoed the sentiment in an interview with the Voice of Alexandria after the presentation of the reward. "Not many, but there still is, and he's one of them".

"The family needs the money", he said. "To me, yeah, that's a lot of money, but they need it way worse than I do", Elchert said.
