Police find vehicle of veteran who went missing in Scottsdale
PHOENIX — Police have located the vehicle of a veteran who went missing in Scottsdale in August about 100 miles east of the Valley.
Jesse Conger’s 2015 silver Toyota Camry was found recently near San Carlos, Arizona, the Scottsdale Police Department told KTAR News 92.3 FM in an email.
Scottsdale police didn’t have any other updates about Conger’s whereabouts.
Conger, 37, was last seen Aug. 14 at his girlfriend’s apartment near McDowell and Hayden roads.
Conger’s twin sister, Patricia, told KTAR News in August that Jesse talked about harming himself in the days leading up to his departure.
Jesse suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.
“He was paranoid,” Patricia said of her brother’s recent behavior. “He thought people were following him. He thought that he needed to protect his family.”
He has two children who live with their mother in Las Vegas.
Initially, it was thought Jesse could be headed to Mexico, but Patricia said at the time she no longer believed that was the case.
Jesse’s disappearance gained attention when Detroit businessman and philanthropist Bill Pulte offered a $10,000 reward. He later tripled the offer.
Anybody with information was asked to call the Scottsdale Police Department at 480-312-5000 or contact Patricia at 619-871-7097 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We never know what tip, what clue is going to break this wide open,” she said.
