I received an email yesterday seeking assistance in helping the effort to locate Jesse Larson, a resident of Crosby, Minnesota who has been missing since June 20th, 2013. They asked me to send along the following message and the flier attached to this email.
If you have any information as to the whereabouts of Jesse, please contact the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department at 218-829-4749. I hope you'll keep Jesse and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
Message from the family of Jesse Larson:
November 9th's deer hunting opener will mark 142 days since avid outdoorsman, Jesse Larson, was last seen or heard from. 27 year old Larson was last seen on his family’s ranch, 12 miles north of Crosby in Perry Lake Township, heading out back on the family property to swim he and his father's black Labrador retrievers. Jesse's truck was found stuck in the mud, in a four wheeler search of the family's property the following day, near a water hole, when Larson failed to return home.
The dogs returned home on days two and eight of Larson's disappearance. Many searches by air, foot, four wheelers, horses, dogs and volunteer firefighters have left family and authorities with no clues. Our family remains hopeful that tips will be provided to the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department this deer season, as area woodlands soon will be filled with hunters walking, listening and watching.
Banners are strategically placed in outlying communities, billboards are hung to alert travelers and a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/FindJesseLarson) is continuously updated with ideas for those interested in supporting our search to bring Jesse home. We remind people of the need to report tips as soon as possible in order for facts to remain clear and details to be more easily recalled.
