    Tom Gorman on when parents learn their missing daughter was a Vegas call girl



    Las Vegas call girls are not likely to tell their moms and dads what they do for a living. It would break too many hearts.

    Jessie Foster's parents learned the hard way, from a private eye. He was hired after Jessie disappeared from a North Las Vegas home with all of her belongings.

    And now they are numbed by fear that she is in danger, or is dead.

    Jessie left her Canadian home nearly a year ago, around the time of her 21st birthday, for what her parents thought would just be a whirlwind tour of the states. She ended up in Las Vegas. With her good looks and casual conversation, she turned eyes and easily made friends here.

    In short order she moved in with a fellow named Peter Todd, a 39-year-old Jamaican national who lives in a half-million-dollar tract home in a swank North Las Vegas neighborhood. A neighbor said Peter has driven home some fancy cars - a Jaguar, a Land Rover, a BMW.

    Jessie told her parents - Glendene Grant and Dwight Foster, who have been divorced for years - that Peter was a trust-fund baby. He had enough money to take care of her so she wouldn't have to work, she said.

    Jessie used to call her father every week, and her mom even more often. She text-messaged her big sister almost daily.

    The last time they saw Jessie was over Christmas, when she went home to visit her dad in Calgary, and her mom in Kamloops. She sounded happy and looked good. They asked her to think twice about returning to Las Vegas, but she wouldn't be stopped.

    In late March, Jessie's phone calls stopped. Her parents called the fellow she had been living with, Peter. He said he last saw Jessie on April 3. Next thing he knew, he said, she was gone and so was all of her stuff.

    This case is similar with a rich boyfriend too....this girl disappeared last May....I wonder if they are connected to a ring that lures young girls in with promises of making it big in Vegas....?? (It is uncanny how much these girls look alike especially in this picture at this link http://www.klastv.com/Global/story.a...av=menu102_2_1 - I can't get one of Jesse's pictures to copy but they could be sisters)

    A Girl With A Plan

    Lindsay grew up in small-town America


    Lindsay Harris left her small hometown of Skaneateles, N.Y in January 2003 with a plan in mind. She left for the cross-country drive to California eager to start a new and adventurous chapter of her life.

    The shy, funny 19 year old had a new boyfriend, then-26-year-old Solomon Barron, whom she had met at a jazz festival in Syracuse. Solomon was a hip-hop promoter with businesses in Syracuse and Las Vegas, and it was there in Sin City that Lindsay planned to start anew.

    Initially, Lindsay lived with her aunt in San Diego, but two months later relocated to Las Vegas and secretly moved in with Solomon. Martha and Robert Harris, Lindsay's parents, knew nothing of Solomon Barron until Christmas 2004, when she brought him home. On May 5, 2005--just five months after their visit--Solomon was calling the Harrises with bad news: Lindsay was missing.

    It is almost frightening how similar the photographs look, simply chilling.

    I have a question, and I really apologize if you've already been asked a million & one times; however, I did a short search at google, and got NOTHING, so maybe it hasn't been discussed anywhere.

    The pics of the women you provided links to, they reminded me alot of Natalee Holloway, and then when I continued reading, the man Solomon really 'stuck out' because one of Natalee Holloway's friends who was interviewed on TV last year is named, "Beau Baron." I couldn't immediately locate any connection, although rootsweb results did show several barons with first name of Solomon a in Alabama LONG LONG LONG ago.

    I'm sure it's just a coincidence, that so many young blonde women look so very similar, but really, it is EERIE in a chilling sense, and then when I saw that name, decided after Google to ask you if you knew of any connection.

    Another MAYBE "coincidence" has to do with music... Maybe you already know this, but if not... there is a huge annual music festival in Aruba each Memorial Day weekend, I think it's called something like Soul Beach Festival, and it attracts thousands from the USA, and the night of the concert coincided with Natalee's disappearance.

    Let me know if you'd like me to delete this message, I'm sure there's NOTHING to it, it's just kind of uncanny.

    Hi Wondering:

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you...

    I believe Lindsay's boyfriend's last name is spelt Barron (two r's) so probably no connection to the NH "Baron"...

    I'm glad you see the resemblence too...probably an odd coincidence but the similarity in their family lives is what really struck me. These were two girls from good homes...(could be yours or mine) who more than likely had big dreams to "make it" one day with their looks...so off they go to "get rich & famous"...while gone they report back that they have met successful (wealthy) men and Mom and Dad nod and go hmmm...well, they must be doing okay....when in reality the parents had no idea what was really going on!!

    This really bothers me as I believe that there are "men" specifically "set up" (by big money) to lure these young girls into a life they have no intentions of living...but once "inside" there literally is no "getting out" for them...(there are many depraved individuals who have way more money than "morals" and will pay whatever amount it takes to fufill their sick fantasies....IMO)

    While searching for a little info on these cases I visited some of the Escort websites for Las Vegas...a number of the pictures of the girls on these sites had their faces blurred out...I wondered, why? Is someone not wanting them to be found or do you believe the girl's themselves are not wanting to be recognized? Which one is it??

    Hi There:

    Sorry, I wanted to thank you for posting Jesse's website on this thread. What a beautiful girl! My heart goes out to her family as well as Lindsays....these two girls touched a special inside of me because when I read the stories I could see this happening to a member of my own family.

    This could happen to anyone.....don't give up looking....if you need help, WS is one of the best and most respected crime sleuthing communities on the net...we have some of the brightest minds visit our site! Media outlets peruse this site as well as reknowned crime bloggers like Steve Huff http://huffcrimeblog.com/ .

    All you need is some media attention brought to the forfront pointing out the similarities and perhaps it might generate some new leads. I am facinated with the coincidences in these cases right down to the girls looking so much alike!

    Are you at all connected to Jesse's family? Since WS is a sleuthing community sometimes things are said on the discussion thread that may appear insensitive to the families....this is never our intent, our intent is to throw all our ideas into the mix and to discuss.

    There is a thread called "Missing Persons Information and Support" where families are encouraged to post and where information, updates, news releases are posted on behalf of the family. I started this thread in the discussion area as I received Jesse's flyer through my email at work and the person that posted the email knew the family personally. I searched for some information online to add to the flyer post but there wasn't much available on the net.

    Welcome to WS and good luck in finding Jesse. My prayers are with you!

    I'm sorry. It was a typo. My typo.

    Beau BARRON has the *same* surname as Solomon BARRON.

    And in this day and age of step-families and huge extended families, it matters not that they are not of the same race, particularly since in some parts of the American South, extended families are quite close, with people being able to instantly tell you all about ALL of their second, third cousins, and second cousins/5th-removed, etc.

    -----------------


    Are you aware that there was an article in a Dutch paper in the past couple days about pimps in Holland preying on young women with learning disorders?

    If you haven't read it, you must track it down, as it would definitely interest you.

    ----------------

    Do you by any chance know if anyone has researched to find out if there was a RAINBOW GATHERING anywhere in Canada-America-Mexico near the time of Jessie's disappearance?

    I realize, that to all EXTERNAL appearances, that she might not "appear" to be interested in a hippy gathering; however, who knows what horrors her life MIGHT have entailed, and so... IF there was a RAINBOW GATHERING anywhere around the time of her disappearance.... it's possible that she took off and went there, and is even now befriended by members of the "Rainbow Family" --- it's international, and I only have been reading about them for a few days so don't feel knowledgable enough to comment much further.

    I started researching them on the Internet, because I believe that Natalee Holloway is alive..... and I'm really surprised with LOTS of stuff I've read, because the movement is massive, and economically speaking, much of it is probable "underground" and untracable.

    Thank you so very much, particularly for the PICTURE PAGE; so many times, there is only one photograph, which really makes it difficult.

    This is a superb webpage:

    Thank-you

    Thanks for the compliment on the web site. I have never done one before. Jessie's mom is a close friend of mine and is the type of person who would give a stranger the shirt off her back. She has provided most of the information and pictures for the page. The suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    news coverage

    http://calsun.canoe.ca/News/Alberta/...93210-sun.html

    This latest coverage is not encouraging at all however the family will not give up until they bring Jessie home.

    If anyone has information that may help, please contact anyone on Jessie's contact page or me, the administrator of her page.

    Until a body is found, I will believe that she is alive.

    Has anyone contacted any of the numerous organizations who assist ex-prostitutes? I'm thinking that they might be able to offer some experienced advice on what she'd do nex, where she'd go, if she did leave Las Vegas of her own volition.

    For instance, would it have been important for her to anonymously skip town?

    I found lots of search results at google's advanced search, using the exact phrase, "for ex-prostitutes"

    Also, I wonder if mailing flyers to Sushi restaurants might provide some tips on her current location?

    any suggestions?

    Just wondering how to put together a mailing list of restaurants and support agencies. I am sure that the company that sponsors the web site will help me with postage.
