ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The father of an 18-year-old Alaska woman who police say was abducted at gunpoint from her espresso stand says the reward for information that leads to her safe return has grown to $41,000.

James Koenig, the father of Samantha Koenig, had been offering a $12,500 reward.

The Anchorage Daily News (http://bit.ly/AdVPh5) says donations have allowed him to increase the amount significantly.

Police said Sunday they had no new information to release.

The teen works as a barista at the Common Grounds Espresso stand, where police say a security camera caught an armed man kidnapping her Wednesday evening. Thousands of fliers have been distributed.

James Koenig on Saturday sent out a message to captors pleading for his daughter's safe return.
