DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - The reward for a missing college student from Keller has gone up to $100,000.

There's still no sign of 21-year-old Zuzu Verk nearly two weeks after her disappearance from Alpine where she's a student at Sul Ross State University in Alpine, TX.

According to police, Zuzu was last seen while on a date last Wednesday.

Alpine police have been busy over the weekend. They've watched hundreds of hours of surveillance video from businesses and homes near the place Zuzu was last seen. 

Police have also released photos, saying this 2016 white Ford Mustang is a key piece of evidence in this case.

Zuzu's father Glenn Verk held a live Facebook news conference to plead for his daughter's safe return. He thanked the community of Alpine for all their efforts in searching.

"We have been embraced by this community in a way that has astounded us," he says.

Glenn Verk says they haven't noticed Zuzu's boyfriend helping in the search. He called on him to step up and help.

"I know you love her, or I hope that you do," Verk says. "This would be a good way to show us."

A candlelight vigil will be held for Zuzu at 7:30pm Monday night at 400 Bear Creek Park Road in Keller.
