MANKATO, MN- To help assist in the search for missing 46–year–old Wendy Khan of Mankato, a former classmate has decided to join forces with a couple organizations.

Beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday on Belle Avenue, behind the CVS, Annette Vander Plas will be handing out flyers with the help of two organizations.

Vander Plas and Khan were both students at Mankato East High School and graduated in 1989.

United Legacy, a search and rescue organization based out of Shakopee, along with members from the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center in Minneapolis will also be there to help get the word out.

Khan had last made contact with her family on June 1, and they reported her missing on the 3rd.

Khan's vehicle was found June 7 near the corner of Belle Avenue and Long Street, where they will be handing out flyers in hopes that somebody in the neighborhood can remember even a small detail about her disappearance.

Vander Plas says, "We just want to get the word out and keep her in people's minds and forefront. Wendy was very kind, soft spoken and all around good person. As many people that we can get out, that'll be great and we can all make a difference together."

Vander Plas encourages anyone to come out and help hand out flyers from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and adds that First National Bank and Franklin Rogers Park will be available for parking.
